Whenever I talk about fitness it seems creativity is never too far behind. Personally, I think one of the best things about fitness is having the opportunity to try new things each and every day. Although, it is important to be consistent in certain things, nothing beats being able to switch things up. For example, there are many places you can go to get a great workout. Today, I want to share with you some of the places you can workout, and discuss the benefits that come with changing the venue in which you work out.
Working out at home means you can grind out some reps all from the comfort of your home. You can spend time in your own space, take your time to learn new movements (like that yoga pose your instructor made you try), or even stare at your butt or biceps (whichever you prefer) in the mirror for longer stretches of time without anyone judging you.
When I was a kid I used to roll out of bed and go straight into push-ups. It would always wake me up a little more than I wanted to but it was a great way to start my day with better alertness. Working out at home can be a really convenient way to exercise no matter who you are, so if you can’t make it to the gym remember that your home is always an option!
Working out at the gym seems to be the most popular place to find other individuals who are working towards similar goals as you. It can be motivating to be in a room full of people who are all pushing themselves past their limits just to visualize their daily glimpse of greatness. The gym is my personal favorite because I always seem to feel like hitting that extra set or workout when I catch someone looking over at me. For some reason I picture them thinking, wow so that’s all you’re going to do bro? C’mon you’re better than that! Be great! Haha, I might be the only one that feels that way, but regardless it definitely helps me push myself to create more for myself.
Many people go to a local park or beach to enjoy the beauty of nature while getting a good sweat in. Nature is a wonderful catalyst that energizes you while displaying a peaceful relaxing scenery. However, It can also appear challenging if you’re standing at the bottom of a steep hill. When the weather is inviting I love getting outside and doing a couple workouts the old fashioned way, before the world built all this fancy equipment. Conquering the rough terrains outside can be loads of fun if you dare to try. There is certainly something exhilarating about going for a run outside that you just won’t seem to find on a treadmill.
