8 Ways to Keep Workouts Exciting — Without Spending Boutique Money
Anyone who works out on the regular knows that a gym routine can get boring — especially when you do the same thing day in, day out. When exercising stops being fun, it becomes more difficult to make it part of your daily life.
For a while, trying the latest boutique gym classes became my go-to way to spice things up. I tried everything from Orangetheory to Pure Barre to an electrifying Miami dance workout class with a live DJ — and I loved them all! These classes really gave me that boost of much-needed enthusiasm and energy and challenged me to use different muscles, and I felt cheered on by the "we can do this!" group mentality.
Only problem was, averaging around $30 a pop, these specialty classes can get expensive . . . fast! This got me thinking about other, cheaper ways to keep my workouts fun and interesting. Here are eight strategies that can help keep your head in the game without breaking the bank.
