10 Inspirational Fitness Ideas That Don’t Include Running a Marathon

Here are 10 inspirational fitness ideas that can help you put a little more adventure in your fitness routines so you don’t become bored.

The most common problem many people face as soon as they decide to get in shape is the monotony of their fitness regimes.

If you want permanent change, you’re going to have to find ways to stay inspired.

  1. Use social media to get a little motivation and connect with other fitness enthusiasts from all around the world. There are lots of Instagram accounts you can follow which provide daily posts full of fitness-related motivational quotes, pictures and videos.

  2. It’s easy to stay inspired and motivated if you mix things up every now and then. You should try signing up for a new fitness class or trying an activity you’ve always avoided.

  3. Establish a motivational mantra and repeat it to yourself daily while working out.

  4. Writing a blog to track your journey to a fitter and healthier you is a great way to hold yourself accountable while still having a little fun. You don’t have to run an amazing 27 marathons in 27 days like Eddie Izzard did recently for Sport Relief but combining your exercise with a charity sounds pretty good.

  5. To keep you pumped up throughout your workout, you should try making your own exercise playlist that consists of your favorite upbeat tunes.

  6. You won’t know how to start if you don’t know where you’re going, which is why it’s important to establish both short and long-term fitness goals.

  7. It’s easy to quickly give up on your new workout routine if you don’t feel comfortable in the clothing you’re wearing. This is why you should look for fitness apparel you feel comfortable and confident in.

  8. Channel your inner child by taking the kiddos to the park and joining them in playing on the playground equipment.

  9. Dancing burns tons of calories, so why not join a group of your closest friends for an adventurous night out on the town.

  10. If you’re up for a real adventure, it’s recommended you explore your area by biking or hiking the local trails. By doing so you’ll be able to get your exercise while getting in touch with nature. Needless to say, the scenery will always be different, which is a definite plus.

My family has a long sporting background and both my parents were national champions in their chosen sports of boxing and badminton. Personally, I’ve worked as a personal trainer, sports coach and lectured within the fitness industry for decades.

Yes, we do sell product but our primary focus is to move you to a more active lifestyle that fits your schedule. For some, it may be dancing when no one is looking; for others it might be walking the dog to a set time; perhaps badminton with the family on the weekend; a short hike with a friend; a kayak challenge that might be fun for you and a mate; a game of croquet; our resistance band exercises at the park; and so much more.
