If you’re someone who has trouble getting yourself to work out because you don’t find it fun, you’re not alone. Luckily, working out doesn’t just have to look like jogging or using gym equipment—there’s plenty of fitness you can do that will let you use your creativity and that’s designed to be fun with the added benefit of a workout. Here are some things to try!
Take a Dance Class
There are many, many different types of dancing to choose from and all of them will help build muscle tone, flexibility, and heart health. You can choose from everything from ballet, to pole dancing, to vogueing! There are lots of options that will let you express your unique self and introduce you to a group of people with common interests.
Skating is also a great thing to learn because again, there are lots of ways you can use it depending on your particular area of interest. There’s speed skating if you like to go fast, park skating if you like adrenaline and going down slides, dance skating or longboarding if you like to twirl, and roller derby if you want to let out your aggression! Again, the other perk is that there’s an awesome skating community you can hang out with.
Some sports combine dance, self-expression, and technical skills! For example, artistic gymnastics involves beautiful routines as well as tumbling, while synchronized swimming requires being very comfortable in the water and great teamwork to create something beautiful. There are also martial arts that combine combat skills and dance!
