Hope you guys enjoyed our little video 🙂  We tried to keep it fun as that is what life is about –> having FUN! And workouts are no different.

Although your workouts should also be challenging…leaving you wiped out. But that’s fun, right?

keep workouts fun

10 Ideas to help amp up your workouts:

  • listen to music —-> have a good playlist of songs that get you moving, music can be so empowering
  • change location —-> change up the spot where you typically workout, go into a different room or go outside
  • before your workout say a goal —> with each workout have an intention/goal for it
  • wear sexy/comfortable clothing —->if you dress the part you act the part
  • make sure you are really warmed up —> your heart rate should be up and you should feel awake, if not then keep warming up
  • have a workout buddy  –> again this is sooo powerful! If you don’t have the ability to workout with a friend or family member, use us as your workout buddies and workout with us everyday 🙂
  • mix up your style of workouts —> keep variety in them, do different things

get outside

  • make sure you are getting enough sleep —> try to get 7-9 hours of good quality sleep or take naps
  • visualize yourself doing and completing the workout –> seeing yourself doing the workout can be so powerful in boosting your self-confidence to give you that extra motivation to go and kill it
  • and oh… can’t forget this one – take a picture of yourself working out and brag about it via social media –> that can help too  😉

The key to amping up your workouts is to have fun, know that there are a variety of ways to get in shape and visualize yourself doing it! Plus just know how amazing you will feel afterwards!

You need to remember that you have to really challenge your body when working out.

Working out should engage the MIND and BODY…so make sure your workouts are doing that –> challenging and engaging!

Awesome tips! I’m all about amping up my workouts when I feel like I need a little bit more to jazz up my routines. Or when I indulge a little too much on the weekends 😉

Love the take a picture and brag about it 🙂 haha …One thing we girls do best is to talk about ourselves 😉
If I’m in a rut I look for other motivating workout videos. Also I might go on instagram or pinterest and find some motivating pictures/workouts there.

When I’m in a rut, I try something totally new and crazy (for me!). Like this fitness competition – craziness. 🙂

Thanks for sharing your ideas 😉

Music and a workout buddy are my best strategies!

agree 🙂

Cat September 13, 2013 - 8:54 am

Such good advice esp about getting enough shuteye and setting a goal pre-workout! That’s one I need to work on, it’s so easy to bust out an average workout but having a goal turns it into an awesome one 😉

purelytwins September 13, 2013 - 8:59 am

we find having a goal or intention really helps us 🙂
