Get Vigorous With Your Workout

If you haven't revved up your workout yet, what are you waiting for? One of the best ways to help you lose weight — and keep it off — is to intensify your workout and modify exercise techniques so that you don't become bored with your exercise plan.

A good way to pump up your workout — literally and figuratively — is to lift weights. Toning is an important part of slimming down and building strength. A great way to start is to use free weights or resistance machines at the gym. If you're worried about looking like a bodybuilder, don't fret! Unless you are pumping iron a few hours per day, your muscles will likely look toned and slim, not bulky.

Although some workouts are not for everyone, branching out and trying something new in your fitness program might be a great way to meet more people or discover a new workout plan that you love.

Change isn't always easy, but when it comes to exercise, it is important not to get too bored or complacent — making exercise fun and exciting will keep you coming back so you can stay healthy and fit.
