5 Simple Ways To Refresh Your Workout

5 Simple Ways To Refresh Your Workout

Every now and then, a regular workout routine can turn into a mundane and boring practice, so it’s important to switch things up to not only keep you on your toes, but also to bring back the zest that’ll keep you engaged, focused and set back on track towards achieving your goals!

Here are 5 ways to get that magic back and refresh your sessions!

1. Work out what works…

If your sessions are becoming stagnated, it’s most likely because you're either misguided, or you’ve already achieved some of your aspirations and you're starting to get bored, as the results you achieve gradually slow down. If this relates to you, then it’s never too late to press the reset button on your workout routines by reviewing why you began your journey and deciding what has worked for you. Consider things like what has benefitted you (you feel healthier perhaps?), what you disliked doing (maybe burpees?) and also what you’ve achieved so far and how you managed to achieve it. From here, you can get the foundations in place to update and build a new workout routine, based not only on what you’ve enjoyed, but also on what has WORKED for you!

2. Become a beast in the kitchen!

Through my experience in the industry, I’ve seen so many customers fall short of their fitness-related goals and desires through lack of knowledge or confidence in the kitchen. With the resources we have now, from countless 15-minute meal books to the millions of recipes on the Internet, ‘not being able to cook’ is not a very good excuse any more for relying on fast food or even ‘healthier’ pre-made food options. I believe home cooking isn’t only good for your soul, but it’s also great at keeping things fresh and exciting and improving the relationship you have with food. Remember, food does not need to be boring or tasteless to hold the nutrients you need from it, and the sheer variety of cuisines and ingredients available is almost endless, so get yourself a cookbook and get that apron on!

3. Freshen things up…

Just as food doesn’t need to be tasteless to be healthy, workouts do not need to be boring to deliver what you want from them. Staying on track with your fitness aspirations can be extremely difficult if you loathe doing it. It’s imperative to find something you love doing, whilst also finding alternatives or progressions to keep things interesting and engaging in the long-term. Try not to forget to alternate between workout styles, class types and even potentially Personal Training to stay on course!

4. Rejuvenate your journey with Personal Training

Now, before you read this title and skip through, thinking PT is an expensive and a non-essential service that most gyms provide, please read on. Any Personal Trainer worth their salt should be able to assess the aspirations of their client and put them on the path to success, through building their knowledge and application of certain training disciplines. Remember, you can drastically reduce the time it takes to achieve a goal with professional help, so you will be on the route to greatness more quickly. And you will also enjoy the journey along the way by confiding in somebody that has the knowledge to take your training to new heights! Remember, you do not always need a long-term trainer - but a little investment in yourself can truly go a long way!

5. Bring a buddy!

If you’re looking far and wide to find the motivation you need go to the gym and smash a workout, then this point is definitely one for you! Getting support and motivation from somebody you can confide in, find inspiration from and exchange plans/ideas for your workouts with is one sure-fire way to keep you focused and set on achieving your goals, as a team. It’s also a great way to build consistency and competition within your workout routines, whilst building a better relationship with one another and encouraging and monitoring each other’s progress and shortfalls.

So if you are struggling with motivation and need a kickstart to your fitness, why not try some of these top tips, to help you remain motivated and to make sure you really enjoy your health and fitness routine!
