Making a Lifestyle Change this Year With the start of the new year, you may find that your gym becomes suspiciously crowded. If you are having trouble finding a treadmill to run on or there is a line for your favorite weight machine, you may want to start looking for alternative workouts. Whether you are the avid gym goer that is annoyed by the new crowd or you are part of the new crowd, it can be frustrating to get your workout in while the gym is so crowded. Finding an alternative form of exercise can be a great way to actually enjoy your exercise. Exercise Enjoying exercise may seem like an impossible task, but there are a lot of ways that you can get out and move your body without participating in a typical workout. It can be scary to reach outside of your comfort zone to try something new, but it may be well worth it in the long run. Taekwondo can be a great way to get your body moving, elevate your heart rate, increase your flexibility and increase your strength. Although you may have never taken a Taekwondo class in the past, starting a new class could be a great way to get your exercise in. While you are looking through the different Taekwondo classes in the area, you should look for a studio that offers classes for beginners. Working with a teacher that is going to understand the limitations of a beginner and help you work through is your best bet of having success. If you are hesitant about taking a Taekwondo class, make sure that you do your research ahead of time. If you are looking to do Taekwondo in Provo, you will probably only have a few different options of studios. Studios If you are looking to do Taekwondo in a big city rather than Taekwondo in Provo, you may find that you have many more studio options. With a wide variety of options, you may have to invest more time into the research process. When you only have a few options, you should not be afraid to start talking with the different studios and getting to know the teachers at the studios. As you talk with different teachers, you may find that you feel more comfortable with one studio or one studio is more affordable. Should you give Taekwondo a try and end up not liking it, move on to another activity that you may like. Find a hiking club in your area or start kayaking to ensure that you are getting the movement in each day that is going to help you be healthy. Enjoying the time that you spend exercising can help you find motivation to exercise on a daily basis. It may also ensure that you stick with your workouts and establish a lifestyle change rather than simply working out for the first few months of the year. Exercising can improve your quality of life. Get out there and find something that you love to do that will also provide you with the exercise that you need. Photo credit: Rolleh
