6 Strategies to Make Working Out More Fun

It's the start that stops most people when it comes to fitness and exercise, but sometimes people make it past the start only to get bored in the middle. 

Let's say you are one of those individuals who had the initial drive to get started with your healthier lifestyle. You ate well and exercised three to four times a week. You experienced great results for the first couple of months, and you're now feeling stronger and more confident than ever. 

Recently, however, your workouts have grown stale. You've gotten into a bit of a rut and feel like you are simply going through the motions when you hit the gym. 

Instead of quitting and giving up on all the hard work you've put in, try changing things up a bit to kick-start your motivation and boost your progress.
