Workout Inspiration

A little more relaxed post today...

Orange Theory Workout Room
I totally just got my tush kicked at a new workout. I am like most people, I hate working out...I have serious attention problems and need someone to be yelling at me at all times OR I need something fun, and I have found it! Tonight I started a new workout at Orange Theory. Their concept is interval training, and it is done in a group setting. I personally like the group setting because you feel as though you want to "keep up" with the other people, so it pushes me a little harder. I did 30 minutes of cardio consisting of running and rowing, and 30 minutes of low-resistance weights and suspension techniques. I have to say, this was BY FAR one of the best workouts I have ever had, and I can't wait to recover (I don't think I'll be able to walk tomorrow) so I can go again!
My Tap Shoes!

I also started taking some dance classes for fun. Ballet and Tap. I think that a constant change, and fun, helps people to stick to a workout regimen. The ballet and tap is not as strenuous, but it helps with strength and flexibility and it does get the heart rate up!

Point? Since we all need to be doing 30 min of aerobic exercise at least 5 days a week, why not make it fun? Try a dance class, Zumba, rowing, soccer...whatever. But whatever you do, enjoy it and know that you are helping yourself to be the healthiest you can be. Think about it...has anyone really ever regretted a workout? Probably not...but I bet you have regretted eating an unhealthy meal!
