5 TWISTS TO ADD TO YOUR WORKOUTS

1) Use an app to track your DAILY goal! 

Shoot for a daily movement goal that’s 1) achievable but 2) requires a little effort. 

You can set step goals, calorie burn goals, etc – whatever works for you! 

And here’s the fun part: Get a streak going … and keep it going!

See how many days in a row you can do it! I have a friend who has been on a streak for more than 736 DAYS! Incredible! You better believe that she isn’t going to let anything get in her way now.

  • TIP 1: Give yourself a reward every 30 days.
  • TIP 2: Keep your goal reasonable – the idea is to create consistency and make the process enjoyable, not punishment.

2) Walk to the Eiffel Tower (or anywhere else in the world). 

Think of a landmark you’ve always wanted to visit. Then look up online how far away it is from your home. Tally all your steps/mileage every day until you reach it … and then give yourself a great reward!

3) Let music run the show.


During your next cardio workout, turn your favorite songs into an interval timer. During the chorus sections, speed up … and slow down during the verses to recover.

4) Join a new league or take up a sport!
Go golfing, join a beach volleyball team, try bowling, play badminton, ride a bike, shoot hoops, go to the batting cage, kick the soccer ball around, go swimming, learn to surf, or take a dance class … basically, have fun!

Doing sports or other activities (especially with others!) can be a great way to stay active and get out of the house. 

5) Work out with a great group or work with a coach! They will keep your workouts fresh, fun, and effective – and help you track your progress along the way.

(And I happen to know a great one … wink, wink!) 

What’s YOUR favorite way to get in more FUN with your workouts? Hit “reply” and let me know! I’m always looking for new ideas.

Make it a healthy day,
