We know how boring or tiring your New Year’s Resolution gets after the initial motivation wears out.
We know how some of you erase the existence of the impulsively bought gym membership from your minds and pretend that it never happened. Ahem! Been there, done that.
So here are a few fun ways to fulfil your fitness resolutions to help us all retain the drive to go all the way through with it!
Zumba Rumbaaa! : Zumba is a high rhythm, upbeat dance-exercise which is immensely fun and makes you sweat out a whole lotta calories! It’s a trademark dance exercise which consists of aerobic and Latin American styles of dancing. A Zumba session along with your usual workout routine would add fun in fitness and can be incredibly exhilarating.
- Hula-Hoop groove! – A little tricky at first, hula hooping can be very enjoyable once you get the hang of it. Hooping gives a lot of work to your waist and hips to balance it with continuous hip and waist movements. It’s fun. It burns calories and it helps your waist develop strength and flexibility.
- Badminton: You heard that right! Some of us play badminton or shuttle-cock near our home or colony while others utilise a badminton court to play/train properly. But wherever played, a game of badminton works like a full body exercise improving agility, stamina, flexibility and making all the players sweat it out! Have your friends join and play in singles or doubles!
Rebound Exercises: Now, who doesn’t find trampolines exciting? Rebounding is an exercise performed on a mini-trampoline. Involving many jumping techniques and aerobic steps, it helps build endurance, core strength, leg/calf muscles and improves your overall balance and motor skills! Rebounding requires a few safety precautions and slow practice warmups for beginners and should be done in a wide, unobstructive place.
Swimming (Don’t don’t don’t): Swimming is not on the list even though it is refreshing, fun and great for your body. That’s because of the ever-present but widely ignored Pandemic. Please DO NOT swim in widely used public pools or swimming ponds until the virus is under control and humans aren’t at risk of contracting or transmitting the virus.
Though all these methods are fun and burn calories, it is always recommended that you consult your physician before trying out any kind of rigorous body workouts and always pick something adaptable by your health and lifestyle.
P.S. Don’t overly stress yourself about fitness, get fit at your pace and your way as you always know what’s best for your body!
