….with some fun gym motivation to keep that #gymgrind going!

Going to the gym can get pretty boring…especially if you’re doing the same thing over and over again, am I right?? Don’t get me wrong! I love the gym as you can tell if you follow me on Snapchat and Instagram with my constant gym selfies.

However, sometimes doing the same workout circuits gets boring and personally…that makes me just start slacking off at the gym. So here are some of my tips that help me make my workouts more fun!

Create an awesome playlist. Depending on the type of workout, I’ll change up my gym playlist. Usually, I really like pop and upbeat music just because it just makes me happy and want to dance through my workout…I actually have started dancing at the gym in the middle of a workout 😉 Sometimes when I’m feeling stressed and working through some stress and tension, I’ll put on  a “Girl Power” playlist to remind myself of my strength and awesomeness.

My top 2 favorite songs: Can’t stop the feeling by Justin Timberlake & Hair by Little Mix

Planning out your workout ahead of time. I love going through different fitness blogs and especially pinterest and put together my workout the night before. Plus with a set workout, it’s easier to stay focus at the gym instead of constantly thinking up of workouts on the spot. Though, I do enjoy some spontaneity in my workouts sometimes.

 

Some of my favorite workouts come from these beauties: Tone It Up, Fit University, and Peanut Butter Runner!!

Sign up for fitness classes! It can either be weekly or monthly or just a one time thing. My sister and I during the summer last year ended up going to a free yoga class at Lululemon where I met an amazing yoga instructor! Dina was super fun to work out with and really great with modifying yoga poses for people who had injuries. The best part?? She not only hosts yoga classes but offers yoga with wine!!! #drinkandbefit am I right??

Come up with fun names for your workouts. Squats are squats and jumping jacks are jumping jacks. However, if I change the name and add in a fun twist to it, it makes it more entertaining and creative. Changing “planks” to “Superman planks” makes it so much more fun to do and plus…I mean aren’t we all superstars when we work out.

Bring a friend! I love working out with my friends because you can cheer each other on, especially when it starts to get tough. I love working out with my sister because I know that she would help me push through a tough workout and vice versa.

Lastly, HAVE FUN!!! Workouts can be super fun – with the right attitude and mindset. Plus who doesn’t like having those endorphins running through you after a good workout? Am I right??

Also, my new favorite post workout snack and honestly snack for whenever – JUICES!! The area where I work has tons of Juice stores and my personal favorite, Juice Carts!! They are super yummy and very very filling. Here’s my personal favorite: Kale, Spinach, Mango, and Banana. *I was too hungry to take a picture of it first #picturefailsofablogger
