Gone are the days when you had to drag yourself to a crowded gym to get some exercise. With the rising trend of home gyms and no-equipment exercise options, you can now get fit right in the comfort of your own home. But, over time, your at-home workout routine can get monotonous and even boring. Spice up your workout by trying out these tips and techniques from Nielsen Fitness.
8 Ways to Spice-up Your Home Workouts
1. MAKE A PLAYLIST
Music can make your workout more enjoyable and motivate you to push yourself harder. Create a playlist of your favourite tunes that will get you pumped up and ready to take on your workout. You can even change up the playlist every week to keep it fresh and exciting.
2. CUT OUT ALL DISTRACTIONS
Distractions can disrupt your workout flow and decrease your productivity. Turn off your phone notifications and try to eliminate any other distractions around you. If people or animals distract you during your workout, try to find a quiet place where you can focus on your exercise routine.
3. LEARN NEW EXERCISES TO KEEP IT FRESH
Doing the same exercises every day can get boring and unchallenging. Switch things up by learning new exercises that can challenge you and keep your muscles guessing. At Nielsen Fitness we offer in-home and online training sessions where you can learn new workout techniques and get real-time feedback from personal trainers.
4. USE NIELSEN FITNESS’ TOOLS
Tracking your progress is crucial to achieving your fitness goals. That’s why we use tools like the Habit Tracker and the Goal Setter to help our clients stay on track and measure their progress.
5. CELEBRATE YOUR RESULTS
Celebrating your progress is important to staying motivated and continuing your workout routine. Track your progress using Nielsen Fitness tools or a personal fitness journal, and celebrate your accomplishments along the way. Set small goals for yourself, and reward yourself when you achieve them.
6. REWARD YOURSELF
Rewarding yourself after a hard workout can be a great motivator. Plan to do something fun after your workout, like going for a walk, watching a movie, or having a healthy snack. This can help you stay motivated and focused on your fitness goals.
7. INVEST IN YOU
If you need extra motivation, consider investing in an in-home personal trainer from Nielsen Fitness. Our trainers can work with you to develop a personalized workout routine that fits your goals and fitness level. We can also provide guidance and motivation to help you stay on track.
8. CHANGE YOUR ENVIRONMENT
If your home simply isn’t cutting it and you need a change of scenery, then you can always work with us from within one of our private personal training studios, which are located in Collingwood and Toronto. For many, the private space and professional equipment are just the ticket to having a more enjoyable workout.
By incorporating these tips and techniques, you can keep your at-home workout routine fresh and exciting. Whether you’re looking to try new exercises or need a partner to help you through, we’re here to help.
