Is your workout routine feeling lackluster? When exercise begins to feel boring and cumbersome, you may feel more inclined to skip it on the promise of “tomorrow.” As you’ve surely heard in the past, consistency is key, and that rings true for fitness goals. For many, mixing it up offers the ability to keep showing up and continue working toward toning, becoming a better runner, burning calories, and other goals. Here are a few ways to bring variety to your fitness routine.
Incorporate the outdoors
If you typically exercise in a gym, consider taking your fitness outside. Head to a nearby park for bodyweight exercises like walking lunges, push-ups, squats, and sit-ups. Prefer other means of cardio? Try exploring a different part of town for a casual stroll or make plans to complete a hiking trail you’ve never been to before.

Bad Weather? Here’s How to Keep Your Exercise Routine Going
Inclement weather can really deter your workout plans, especially if you typically exercise outdoors or in a gym. We’ve all been there: It’s a new day and you’ve planned a great workout. Then, a rainstorm comes along and you feel that motivation to exercise slip away. How can you quickly reroute your plans so that you don’t get lulled into a comfy couch? iFIT’s TV and mobile apps are great ways to get your exercise in for the day no matter the forecast.
Just because you’re at home doesn’t mean you can’t get a great workout in to stay on track with your goals. iFIT’s mobile app is a convenient way to access thousands of on-demand workouts that can be used with equipment capable of Bluetooth connectivity. When paired with your NordicTrack treadmill, bike, or elliptical, you can jump into workouts filmed all over the world. Not only will you get immersive experiences, but you’ll be coached by world-class trainers, too!
If you’re not an equipment owner, there’s a wide variety of bodyweight workout series designed to take your fitness to the next level. Build strength, work on your mobility, or even sweat it out in a HIIT class. The choices are endless! Download the mobile app on your phone or tablet.
Wish you could use the app on your TV instead? You can! The iFIT TV app makes it easy to work out in your living room, home gym, or anywhere else with a smart TV.
