Exercising does not have to feel like another chore to check off your to-do list. Working out can be fun! To ensure a fun workout, pick one that fits your personality and style, a good playlist also helps. 

Check out these five fun workout ideas. 

1. At-Home Gym Equipment

Skip having to share gym equipment with sweaty strangers. Instead, purchase your own at-home equipment. Exercise equipment, such as stationary bikes and treadmills, is a great investment. 

In many cases, the cost of the equipment equals that of a yearly gym membership. They can provide moderate to intense workouts, and no longer are the days of rearranging your schedule for the cycle class at the gym. You can hop on your home equipment anytime you want. 

For those missing their in-person fitness instructor, many of the higher-tech stationary bikes and treadmills come with virtual capabilities. 

These virtual capabilities allow you to connect to virtual trainers or fitness instructors during your workout. You have the best of both: the comfort of your own home and an instructor to motivate you through those killer hill circuits. 

For nighttime workouts or in the event of a power outage, make sure you are equipped with a solar battery. With its stored energy supply, you should never have to worry about getting your workout interrupted.  

2. Video Game Workouts

Video games are another fun workout idea. Zumba video games are perfect for dance fanatics. Invite a friend or two over and get the Zumba dance party going. It may not be exactly like a live class, but you still have plenty of opportunities to move your hips and get your salsa fix in. 

Sports-simulated video games are perfect for a sports fan. These types of video games come in handy on a bad weather day. You can turn on your console and get immersed in a game of tennis or baseball; enjoy a few rounds of golf; or, opt for a little bowling.

3. Fitness Trackers and Apps

For those who like to set goals, invest in a fitness tracker. There is a range of fitness trackers on the market. Some are programmed to keep track of daily steps. Others are more advanced with the ability to monitor heart rate, track calories burned, and record mileage.

Fitness apps are also great for helping you meet your fitness goals. Running-focused apps can provide runners with customized coaching and guidance on increasing distance. 

Nutrition and well-being-focused apps offer ideas on healthy living. Many of these apps are free to use with the option to upgrade for additional features.

4. Online Workout Videos

Find your favorite online workout videos. There is a wide variety of online exercise videos, including kickboxing, yoga, and cardio dance to name a few. Most of these videos are free. All you need is a small area in your home and a viewing device. Pretty simple. 

Start with a video that fits your fitness level. Low impact workouts are great for beginners while still providing a good workout. 

For those ready for higher intensity, pick a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout. These workouts pack in short bursts of intense work followed by rest. 

5. Outdoor Activities

See if your city offers outdoor fitness classes during the warm months. Check your city's community education catalog or local gym to see if they offer outdoor classes. They are a great way to enjoy the outdoors with that added bit of structure.  

Take advantage of beautiful scenery and plan a day of hiking. You may be lucky enough to live near a state or national park with great hiking trails. Or, plan a day of bike riding. 

Find an unexplored bike trail in your area and make a day of it with planned stops along the way at cafés or restaurants. 

From trying out a fun online exercise video to exploring a new bike trail, you are sure to find the workout that is right for you. And don't forget, a good playlist also helps!
