Stale workout routine?

Hitting the gym on a regular basis is a big commitment with big payoffs. But after a while, the same old routine can become boring. Here are a few tips to keep things interesting.

Take action:


Make a small change to your normal workout, for example, run or walk outside instead of inside; try a new sport or activity – learn to play a new game or take a class that teaches you a whole new way to keep fit; keep challenging yourself with new heights and new goals, such as running longer or faster; make sure you vary your workouts – try a lot of different exercises; treat yourself to an MP3 player, pedometer or a new type of workout equipment; allow yourself a bit of time off, but always get back to exercising after a little rest.

I'm all for it - we're going to have power cuts regardless, so we might as well have some stability to better plan our lives

No thanks! I prefer having periods of no load shedding and we cannot normalise this crisis
