20 Fun Ways to Exercise if You Hate the Gym

Going to the gym and doing the same routine day after day can become very boring. Before you know it, you are less motivated, you have a negative attitude, and achieving your goals just isn’t a priority anymore.

Exercise is crucial for your overall health and wellbeing. It improves your mood, fights fatigue, and promotes endorphins and self-confidence. That being said, when you find yourself becoming bored, it’s important to switch it up. Instead of running on the treadmill, head to your local park and do a few bodyweight exercises on the jungle gym instead.

The worst thing you can do is begin your workout with a negative attitude. It’s important to keep your training sessions fun and participate in activities that provide motivation. For instance, playing a sport, taking a group fitness class and signing up for an obstacle course race, are all great ways to have fun and get in a killer workout at the same time.
