Out of the Box Exercise Ideas

Posted on January 12, 2018 in Health and Wellness

It’s easy to get caught in the same old routine, no matter what stage of your life you are in. When it comes to exercise in particular, it’s not uncommon to get burnt out on the same exercise routine day after day. There are so many options out there for you to expand your exercise repertoire and get outside of your normal routine (or even start a new routine if you don’t already have one!).

The Key to a Great Workout

Challenge is key when it comes to workouts. Your body needs a diverse set of exercises to continually improve. Naturally, your body adapts if you stick to the same static set of training without changing it up from time to time. When this happens, your workouts will feel comfortable, which may seem like a good thing, but really it means that there’s nothing that’s being improved. If you present your body with a challenge by trying something new, you are bound to see a change and improvement in your overall health. If you don’t want to be stuck on a fitness plateau, you might want to consider changing it up a bit!

Exercise Options

The opportunities are endless. Are you interested in water exercise? Stay fit in the pool with swimming, water aerobics or just walking back and forth in the pool! Swimming is a favorite because it’s easy on your joints, but at the same time is a fantastic workout for almost all of the muscles in your body. Prefer something “out of the water” or more outdoorsy? Take a walking trip around the community with friends—or try using our state-of-the-art fitness equipment if indoor is more your style. Indoor and outdoor exercise are great because they can be done with a friend, and the two of you can make it a conversational time while still staying active.You can achieve any and all fitness goals that your heart desires with these kinds of options. Don’t forget to fill up with a healthy snack after your workout.

Veale Wellness Center

Found on Breckenridge’s campus is the Veale Wellness Center, which is home to a warm water therapy pool, lap pool, workout facility, walking track, and much more. With all of these features, it is much easier to engage in new fitness activities that will help you branch out of your comfort zone, which is vital and great for both your body and mind.

Veale Wellness Center has so much to offer outside of these wonderful facility amenities. Programs are provided for those in the community to live a healthier lifestyle, such as the Water Balance Program and Mind & Body Relaxation Program. These will not only keep your mind and body active, but also involve you more with the community - which is equally as important.

Your lifestyle is probably already busy and full of exciting activities, but consider taking that step to try something new - you never know, you might find yourself a new hobby!
