The importance of “switching it up” is paramount! A lull putting you on a plateau or dreading tying up your sneakers is common. Your body is great at adapting and physical demands that were once taxing have become easy. You’ve gotten stronger, now add a new challenge: variety.
Take a new class, try a new exercise, or increase the intensity and frequency of your workouts. Cross training not only gets you over a hump to change your body’s physique and keeping the workout fresh, it also clears the cobwebs in your mind. When you get bored you simply go through the motions without putting real intention behind it. A mind/body connection to any exercise increases results.
Try sticking with a weekly workout plan for one month, and then change it for the next month. Track your progress and reward yourself for completing each month. Above all, stick to it! Don’t let boredom ruin your progress.
HIP Studio offers a variety of classes just for this reason, and we’ve added more! Check out the classes we are offering on our new schedule.
