You know the feeling well.

You’ve been doing a workout and suddenly you’re really bored with it and maybe start skipping it.

Even the most perfect workout plan won’t do you any good if you hate it and decide to find something else to do.

Now is the time to mix things up and turn your workout into something you look forward to again.

Here’s how to do it.

If you’re starting something new, run it by your doctor first, just to be on the safe side.

1. Find Someone to Work out with

Not only does this help keep you from backing out at the last minute, but having a workout buddy can make exercise seem less like a chore and more like a great time spent with a friend.

You can essentially choose anyone so long as you have similar ability levels and both enjoy your chosen exercise.

Ask your significant other, a co-worker, your sister or best friend to exercise with you and you’ll instantly look forward to it again.

2. Sign up to Try Something You’ve Never Done before

If you always do the same workout all the time, there are many reasons to give something new a try.

Switching things up challenges your body in new ways, which is beneficial for your strength, endurance and overall benefits.

It also keeps you from getting bored.

If you always hit the pavement, try a yoga class.3

If you are typically a swimmer, try taking a dance class.

3. Create a Fabulous New Playlist

Do you always listen to the same list of music when you exercise?

I tend to do the same.

If you’re bored, consider making yourself a fantastic new list of music.2

Having something exciting to listen to when you run, walk, jog, swim or lift weights can breathe an entirely new life in to your boring old exercise session.
