  • Tips for Making Your Workout Extra Enjoyable

Residents at Collegiate Communities enjoy the luxury of a 24-hour fitness gym, not too far from your apartment! Make use of this convenient amenity by trying out some of these tips to making your workout more enjoyable.


Try something new.

If you already have a workout routine that works for you, that’s great. But trying something new could be a fun way to exercise muscles you don’t normally work, and you might find that you’ve found a new passion to enjoy! This could renew your energy and help you better look forward to hitting the gym. At our fitness centers we have a variety of machines and equipment to use, so try them out and see what you can do.


Use a fitness app.

Fitness apps can be useful because they can give you suggestions for what sorts of workouts to do based on what you want to accomplish. The Nike+ Training Club App is just one example of an app that does this. If you’re looking for an app to help you with strength training and bodybuilding, try out JEFIT. If you’re aiming to lose weight, try Lose It! or My Fitness Pal to log your food and drink intake and exercise. These apps that help you log what you’re doing can give you a clearer idea for how you can reach your goals and let you see your successes along the way.


Put on your favorite form of entertainment.

A good way to help the time pass by quickly is by putting on your favorite form of entertainment while you work out. This may mean playing music that gets you pumped to do your best, but it can also even mean playing an audiobook or even a TV show on your mobile device. It can be a nice way to squeeze in an extra episode or chapter, especially if the rest of your day is pressed for time. Do what works for you and what lets you pay enough attention to what you’re doing that you do it safely. It could help you look forward to your time at the gym, which can only help you in your fitness goals.

We hope you find these tips helpful. Always remember to be safe and consult a doctor before trying a new workout routine. Have fun, and good luck!
