6 Ways to Get Out of a Fitness Rut

There really comes a point when a person starts to become uninspired and bored with a fitness routine, no matter how devoted he or she is.  If you feel like you are stuck in a fitness rut, don’t worry… it happens to the best of us.  But the key is to power through and not let it get to you.

To help you get out of a fitness rut, here are 6 ways to help your self bounce back.

1. Shop for New Fitness Gear.

Remember when back-to-school shopping made you excited for the start of a new school year?  Well, you can apply that in this situation too.  I don’t know about you but new workout clothes get me excited to start working out.

2. Get Some #Fitspiration

Pinterest, Instagram, blogs – the internet is loaded with tons and tons of #fitspirations that will motivate you to bounce back from an exercise rut.  You can also go through old (healthy and fit) photos of you  and make that your inspiration to start working out again.

3. Try Something New

Obviously, the way to break the boredom and plateau is to change things up.  There are tons of physical activities to choose from.  It’s probably time to change your standard fitness routine and incorporate new types of workouts.

4. Switch Up Your Schedule

If you’re not willing to change your workout routine, how about trying a new schedule.  If you always work out in the morning, you can try to schedule it at night – you may find yourself having more enthusiasm and stamina.

5. Embrace the Outdoors

Depending on where you live and what the weather is like right now, taking your workouts outdoors is a great way to break the boring routine.  Don’t confine yourself inside a gym…  embrace the sunlight, inhale fresh air and let the beauty of Mother Nature inspire you!

6. Buddy Up

… or maybe it’s time to get a fitness buddy.  Pair up with a friend, your sibling or join workout classes to enjoy your exercises more.
