Jazz Up Your Workout!

Don’t let an exercise rut deter you from staying active

Regular exercise—especially the aerobic kind—trumps the heart disease risk factors of an inactive life. You already know this, of course, and we know you’re getting in your 30-minute workouts. But an exercise rut could lead to boredom and cause you to sit on the sidelines instead of staying in the game. Be the change your workout routine needs to stay motivated. Always do yoga? Try a Zumba class. Working the elliptical your favorite thing? Give spinning a go. Or just pump up the volume and shake what your mama gave you; one study found 20 minutes of dancing increases cardiovascular endurance and boosts your mood. If you’ve been naughty (read: sedentary), check with your doctor before starting any kind of strenuous workout.
