Personalize Your Routine


Personalize your fitness, find things you enjoy, and work it into your routine!


I love going to the gym. But I get it’s not for everyone.

What’s one of the first things that comes to mind when you see the hear the word fitness? Is it the gym? We’ll it doesn’t have to be that way.

Following a fitness program that consists of 6 days in the gym, for someone who hates it, probably isn’t the best approach. Maybe you love soccer, and you implement soccer practices/games in the program, with some strength and agility straining 2-3 times a week to improve on field performance. That’s something you could get behind and stick with.

Do things you enjoy! Fitness sometimes gets a bad rap for grueling workouts, tupperware meals with clod chicken and broccoli, and endless cardio. It doesn’t have to be that way.

As I said, I love going to the gym! So I go there almost every day and have a positive community of people there that inspire/push me. But would you find me on the treadmill?

No way.


Because I hate running, so I hate the treadmill. But I LOVE paddle boarding (specifically racing and surfing). When I’m out there on the water, I get into a state of flow and everything seems to be firing on all cylinders. Its something I genuinely enjoy, and try to work into my day whenever possible!

To train for racing, I need to at least have some suitable base of cardio if I ever want to compete with these ex-Olympic athletes who now Stand Up Paddle. So for paddle training I’ll do intervals on the rower, balance work, and circuit training.

If you view fitness as something you love doing, or use fitness to help propel you towards a specific goal or passion, than it becomes much easier to make time for it in your life.

Whenever someone asks what kind of workouts they should do. The first two follow-up questions I always ask are: 1) What are your goals?, and 2) What do you enjoy doing?


For you, maybe its yoga, P90X in your basement, soccer games twice a week, running, rock climbing, skiing, or swimming, the possibilities are endless! Obviously there are pros and cons to each different form of fitness, and some may benefit your body composition more than others, but it all depends on your goals.

When you implement things you enjoy into your fitness routine, it becomes a heck of a lot more fun!


What do you enjoy doing and how can you implement it into your routine?
