The best part is that there are so many different ways to get a good workout. And you might not have to go to the gym at all. Check out this comprehensive list of exercise ideas and inspiration and create a personalized plan for yourself.
Get creative with home exercises
It doesn’t matter how dedicated or die-hard a “Bachelor” fan you are, one thing we can all agree on is that those episodes are LONG. Two hours every Monday is a commitment Bachelor Nation knows well. This time is a great opportunity to pour a glass of wine and relax, no doubt. But if you want to multitask during this seemingly eternal activity you partake in every Monday night, combine watching “The Bachelor” with your exercise. [READ ON]

As a student, I had to find new ways to exercise. At the beginning of the year, I was so focused on yoga classes that I had a negative attitude towards going to the gym and using gym equipment. I didn’t feel like I could do anything right and was constantly worried about injury. Then one of my friends convinced me to try a Peloton class. So I did and was instantly hooked. Peloton reintroduced me to my old love of running, showed me how strong I could be, and most importantly, made me love and look forward to exercise. [READ ON]

Find sources of motivation to exercise
After things calmed down from the COVID-19 pandemic, a trainer from my mom’s gym contacted me and asked if I wanted to do a free three-session jumpstart. Basically, she would test my athletic ability during our first session and then create an exercise program for me to follow during our second and third sessions.

It’s so common these days to feel intimidated at the gym because we live in a time where body image is put on a pedestal. People are very quick to judge a person based on their appearance, so it’s so easy to feel like you’re constantly being judged or stared at during exercise. Put on your headphones, focus on yourself and do it because honestly, others are most likely more focused on their own training. [READ ON]

This morning I was woken up by my pink alarm clock at 4am. I get out of bed and walk across the room to turn it off. Next to the alarm clock are neatly folded clothes that I prepared for this morning’s training. I went with my olive green matching sports bra and leggings. On the way to the gym, I notice how empty the roads are. I haven’t worked out this early in a long time, but it was the only way I could fit it into my busy day. [READ ON]
