While the world is becoming increasingly #fitspo there are definitely people out there who basically have always and will always hate exercise. Sore knees, asthma or just not motivated – whatever your reason for choosing Netflix over the gym, there are a lot of people out there who are in the same boat as you.

No matter how much you think you hate working out, the good news is that there is a form of exercise out there that you will enjoy – it’s just a matter of finding what’s right for you. Here are some ideas to get you started.

1. If you hate the gym… Kết quả hình ảnh cho you find working out too intense

Try getting outside and going for a good old fashioned walk. Walking is great because it can be done anywhere, anytime and it can even be incorporated into your existing routine e.g. walking to work. Safe for people with creaky joints, walking will also help you to build cardiovascular endurance.

2. If you hate team sports… 

Try going for a bike ride. Biking is a great way to build muscle tone and because the muscle group that biking uses is the largest in your body, it burns serious calories.

3. If you would rather spend time with your significant other… 

Try taking a ballroom dancing class. It may sound kind of out there, but dancing is a great way to increase balance and coordination, all while being a fun bonding exercise for you and your partner.

4. If you need other people to keep you motivated… Kết quả hình ảnh cho you need other people to keep you motivated

Put out the word at work and see if anybody wants to form an indoor netball or soccer team. Playing social sports is a fun way to workout and of course going for a drink afterwards helps to ease the pain of the workout.

5. If you find working out too intense… 

Have a go at yoga or Pilates. Both will help to develop your core strength, posture and flexibility, while also being fairly low impact and sometimes even kind of relaxing.

6. If you suffer from back or joint pain… 

Get yourself down to the local pool and have a go at swimming some lengths. Swimming puts zero stress on your joints, burns calories and increases your cardiovascular endurance. It’s also great if you struggle with overheating because obviously being in the water will help to keep you cool.

7. If you’re super cheap and don’t want to pay for anything… Kết quả hình ảnh cho không muốn trả tiền cho việc tập thể dục

Find an exercise tutorial online and have a go at doing a free home workout. You don’t need to pay for an expensive gym membership to break a sweat! To get you started you could try the Ashy Bines Butt Raise Challenge.

8. If you get bored easily… 

Give handstands a go. Handstands are really fun and super effective at building core strength, upper body strength and improving balance. The best thing about handstands is that you can do them at home anytime and you can even get your friends involved too.
