les Mills on YouTube is quite fun I have a set of about 20 YouTube workout I only do because I don't like doing others and I pick one based on my mood that day for example some days I want it light so I do a 24 minute tabata which is quite engaging because even if you don't like the excercise it's only 20 seconds and the music is good that the youtubers play. then on days I want to work my maximum i do Caroline Girvan because I'm always tired after hers

Thanks you I have tried both and can’t seem to stick to them or like them Caroline because her workouts are too long and quite boring and very hard for me rn as I haven’t been working out regularly thanks you anyways though !

how about going to a fitness class or going with a friend it's so much more motivating with someone else because they tell you to carry on and you basically can't stop

one thing I do is I think of each fitness sesh as an appointment (like a doctors appointment or a meeting) you would never not turn up. When I did this, it was so much easier.

ah yes another thing I do (especially when it's sunny) is a circuit workout w my fav music

so I have say 6 stations with different exercises of how I feel that day
here's an example:
1. Skipping rope
2. star jumps
3. hopping
4. burpees
5. press ups
6. bicycle thingy

and every time the song changes the excercise changes or get a workout there and change every time if she songs are too long

Thanks you so much !
Apart from the dance videos I also do Chloe Ting’s workout programs, they have helped to be more consistent and once I noticed the changes in my body it motivated more, however I won’t say that sometimes I don’t get lazy but I try do them anyway, you can also do those workouts with other people
I haven't tried this myself but some people I know workout with TV shows. Like if you search up 'Gossip Girl Workout' it comes up with an exercise to do every time something happens in the show.
