Fitness + Nutrition | Hate The Gym? Get Fit This Way Instead


The gym can truly be a scary place. All this grunting, sweating and tight clothing. It can be intimidating enough to put many of us off from going back – or from even going in the first place!

Working out at a gym really isn’t for everyone. But that’s OK. There are plenty of ways to keep in shape and get moving without ever having to set foot in the dreaded gym. Here are some alternative ways to make sure you keep moving:

Consider classes

No no, we don’t mean actual gym classes. More like finding yoga, pilates or even a karate studio near you and giving a class a go. Classes are great for people who find self-motivation difficult. They encourage you to push yourself further than you probably would if you didn’t have a bit of an audience. This can be a bit intimidating at first too, but it comes without all the scary-looking machines at least. If you can, grab a friend to go with you as this will force you into trying it at least once. After you’ve got over the hurdle once, you are much more likely to go back by yourself in future.

Join a rambling or running club

The health benefits of low impact exercise like walking and jogging are often overlooked. We live in an age where weight lifting sometimes sounds like the only option, but it really isn’t. Everyone has different things they would like to achieve in their fitness journey and, for some; just staying active is the main part. Walking and running are great for your circulation, posture and muscle tone. So grab your trainers and get going!

Invest in a workout machine at home

This involves a little more money than some of the other options. But the amount you will pay for some gym memberships makes this worthwhile if you’re a gym-a-phobe! Do some research into machines like rowing machines, cross trainers and the best home treadmills and see what kind of deals you can get. Then just put a bit of money aside every month, or look into payment plans, and you can install your lovely new home gym machine.

YouTube Tutorials and DVDs

There are plenty of people around nowadays who simply get fit on their own time, in the own home, with the help of video tutorials. Just a quick google of yoga and pilates will bring up plenty of videos from fitness experts. Similarly, if you haven’t heard of Kayla Itsines and The Body Coach, you’ve probably been living under a rock. These flexible fitness plans are built around the idea of intensive and effective workouts you can do wherever, whenever.

The truth is, just keeping yourself moving is one of the best ways to keep in shape. Whether you want a super sculpted body or just want to feel better mentally and physically, it’s easy once you get started. Invest in some new workout clothes and trainers to get you excited about the prospect of exercising and then get lost in some sweaty fun.
