I am always telling my clients how important it is to make fitness fun. If you don’t have fun with what you are doing, you won’t do it as much, or get as good of results. Whenever I start to get bored with things, I start exploring and experimenting with new things. Last week, I was kind of sick of the gym and just not feeling it…very unmotivated to lift a single weight, and therefore, I decided to just go with my own flow. Instead of my usual routine, I did a lot of long runs, a day of martial arts, and I took a hip-hop dance class!!! It was awesome!!!
I have been wanting to to some boxing and get back into dancing for a few years now, and have just found every excuse in the book not to do either of them, lol. However, EXCUSES BE GONE!!! I just went for it. It was my 2 nd week of boxing actually, and that is such a nice change from weights! Also, the hip-hop class was so fun and I worked my butt off…literally. We were popping, and locking, and dipping and sweating like crazy. I woke up the next day feeling lean, and fulfilled. There is something to be said about moving your body in different ways. It really helped me to connect my mind and body in new and improved ways and I am appreciating what it did for me mentally, spiritually, emotionally, AND physically. I felt like I was re-awakened into action. I plan to do that dance class again tomorrow night, and I cannot wait!!! I will be attending Millenium Dance Complex this week as well, which is a very hip and edgy place to go, and can be a bit intimidating at first. However, the instructor was great last week and really did a good job moving slowly and explaining everything smoothly so the entire class could follow along and shake their bodies to the beat:)
