  • Try a new workout class. A dance class, indoor cycling, group weight training or yoga can spice up your exercise routine.
  • Instead of just walking or running on a cardio machine, add some interval sprints and get some new music.
  • If you work out with weights, vary your exercises.
  • If you run or walk outdoors, try a different route.

Change up your ho-hum, stale workout and play a sport or exercise with a friend – terrific ways to stay motivated.  Physical fitness is an important part of staying healthy. Find a way to keep it interesting, so you can keep it going.
