Get Fit And Have Fun.

Dancing Is Good Fun!

What better way to spend some time with the girls than to sign-up to a dance class? Salsa, hip-hop or even ballroom dancing is an excellent way of learning something new, socialising and getting fit. Once you have learned the basics of a new dance imagine the fun you might have getting your hair and make-up done, buying a pretty dress or even competing for an award. You may even discover you have a natural talent and are better than you could have hoped. Dancing is also a good way fro couples to make sure they are spending some quality time together and can be very romantic.

Make It A Hobby.

Fitness does not necessarily have to mean that you make a booking at the gym which you dread all day and don’t enjoy.Many hobbies can be used as a way of keeping fit; gardening for example if done regularly and properly make burn more calories than you think. Painting and decorating as we are probably all aware can be tiring do why not spruce up the back bedroom and burn some excess fat at the same time.

Have Fun With The Kids.

Take your children swimming every week and not only will you be spending time together, but you will be getting healthier, having fun and teaching your children the skills needed to save both theirs and possibly someone else’s life.Why not try go-karting or jumping around on a trampoline with the little ones, there’s even the chance of doing martial arts classes together; perhaps one day you will be competing against each other!

Do It For Charity.

No one will judge you badly, no one will think you look silly and everyone will admire you if you sign-up to complete a charity event that involves anything physical. Not only can you set yourself a target, plan a training schedule and make money for charity, but you will meet lots of people, make new friends, lose weight and may even find yourself on local television or in the newspapers.Running, cycling, climbing, walking in fact anything goes when it comers to raising money for charity and often the more adventurous you are, the more money you will raise.Once you have signed up and committed yourself, you will find you are motivated enough to train and know deep down that you must see it through.

Get A DVD.

This does not necessarily mean getting the latest celebrity endorsed fitness DVD though these are generally very good at improving fitness, you could rent or buy your favourite dance film, close the curtains and pretend you are the star of the show. No-one will know and you will be having so much fun you won’t even realise you are burning calories.

There are so many ways of improving your fitness and losing excess weight without having to spend hours on the treadmill or running the same pavements every day. A little imagination, inspiration and motivation may be all it takes to start you that road to success. A few weeks of having fun while exercising may spur you on to start taking your fitness more seriously and trying out the dreaded gym after all.
