Changing up your routine at the gym is something that can help you reach your fitness goals faster. It helps keep your muscles challenged by targeting new muscle groups. It helps prevent boredom and burn-out. Changing up your routine also makes your fitness journey more fun and can expose you to new classes or equipment you might not have tried before. Try some of these new exercises and have fun with your new routine at the gym:
If you engage in specific sports, try a Sport Specific Class such as conditioning for golf. These Sport Specific Classes can help you perform better and stronger. Functional Fitness training for a specific sport increases agility and stability enabling you to be more competitive in sports.
If you are recovering from an injury or are getting through physical therapy, take a knee injury personal training class. These classes are modified to provide a tough workout, yet low-impact and gentle on your joints. Classes such as these can help strengthen the muscle around the joints helping you prevent re-injury in the future. If you are currently recovering from an injury, please consult your doctor first to make sure you are safe to participate. Making a comeback too soon could lead to further injury.
Take a stretching class. You will learn new ways to help relieve minor discomforts that come with being an athlete. Learning a subscapularis stretch can be a huge benefit for individuals who suffer from shoulder and back pains. A stretching class will show hands-on techniques and tools to help you stretch deeper, safer, and more effectively.
If you like high-intensity classes, take a martial arts course. In additional to building cardiovascular fitness, you will also increase self-awareness and self-esteem. Confidence looks great on every person!
Introducing your muscles to something new is a great way to change up your routine and help stay on track. Invite your friends and help each other with accountability. Instead of making a lunch date with friends, make it a workout date, and try something new and fun. Get out of your rut and change up that routine!
