Exercise Is Boring - Four Fun Ways To Stay Active

Posted by Dan Cromar on 8/12/2015
There are many benefits to exercise, but when exercise is perceived as boring, it’s enough to deter people away from it. 

However, exercise doesn’t have to be boring. After all, exercise is nothing more than moving the body to burn calories and increase muscle amongst other benefits. There are ways to move the body in a fun way. Stop focusing on exercise, and start focusing on having fun. 

Yoga Class

Yoga looks pretty calming, and it is. However, it requires a lot from the body. In a typical classroom, people are encouraged to wear flexible and comfortable clothing. People have the option to bring their own mats, which is hygienic. However, many classes offer mats for their students, which are periodically cleaned. The instructor verbally guides and demonstrates how to do poses. Some poses are easier than others. However, instructors provide focus on how to correctly do poses. 

The fun aspect of yoga is learning to do new things with the body, provide focus and relieve stress while being able to socialize with others. Classes provide a sense of comradery. The usual response to a yoga class is the people leave feeling happy, optimistic and more energized. 


Wakeboard has been around for a little while. However, there are still some people who don’t know about it. Wakeboarding incorporates the use of a board, which is like a snowboard. It is used to ride the water behind a boat. 

If it’s too difficult to coordinate with others to do wakeboarding, a surfboard can be used for standup paddleboarding. People do standup paddleboarding to exercise their bodies. They stand up on a surfboard and use a paddle to push themselves along the water. This type of exercise uses a lot of calories, helps people to develop balance and tone up their muscles. An added benefit is that people get to see lake and ocean wildlife as they paddle. They can also check out other sights. 

Geocaching on Foot

Some people geocache using a vehicle or use another method for getting around. However, take up this activity on foot. People usually traverse a few miles before they know it. The idea of geocaching provides a way for people to find different types of treasures and to replace those treasures with their own. People find money, watches and other items.

Some people who leave these items are wealthy, and others leave things to make people smile. The surprise of what’s found is part of the fun. Doing this task on foot can burn a significant amount of calories and helps to tone up muscle legs. 

Old School Skating

Ditch the rollerblades unless it’s favored. Head out to a roller skating rink and get moving to the music. Skating provides a fun way to exercise the body. Roller skating rinks typically have several games to participate in. For instance, they do the “Hokey Pokey”, “Simon Says” and other types of games. People dance, skate backwards and do other fun tricks. Even if an amateur skater attempts these and can’t do them immediately, the body still burns a lot of calories from trying. 

Exercise doesn’t have to be boring. It doesn’t matter what a person does for exercise as long as they’re moving their body and enjoying what they’re doing.
