Workout: Spicing it up

The key to making exercise an enjoyable activity is to spice it up!  Exercise can become monotonous if we continue with the same strategy week after week. There are only so many bicep curls and lunges that one can do before our subconscious begins to scream “Not Again!!!!!!

Spicing up your fitness routine is a lot easier than you may think. It is just a matter of keeping an open mind and exploring the possibilities.

This weekend try to incorporate at least one of the following into your routine:

  • Try people watching as you take a jog through Venice Beach, don’t be surprised to find a “human tree” or some impressive acrobatics
  • Check out a new gym.  The hard bodies at the infamous Gold’s Gym in Venice can certainly inspire.
  • Take a stroll with your significant other or that “hot” guy or girl you’ve been eyeing for a while.
