Fitness is often boring if you don’t find it inherently fun. Some people really like running or weightlifting on their own, and don’t mind just going with some music and working out.
Others need a bit more motivation than that, so to keep yourself interested in getting in shape, you should make a game out of it to make things more fun. There are lots of things that you can do, primarily from apps, to help get you in shape.
One of the most popular apps that got people walking around was Pokémon GO. It encouraged users to walk around in order to find and catch Pokémon, as well as come across various stops, usually points of interest in a city, in order to gain items.
You can also walk to hatch eggs that will hatch after either 2 km, 5 km, or 10 km. This game alone is a great way to get you walking. If you live in a city, you can find Facebook groups for the game in your specific city, who will post updates about Pokémon that are popping up in the area.
You can plan out a route that you can walk around the cities to hit up different stops and even battle at gyms along the way. There are other games that people love to play for fitness, as well.
For example, geocaching still has a rather large active community of players that are still hiding and finding caches to this day. If you’re not familiar with it, geocaching is a game people play in which you use GPS coordinates to find hidden caches, usually containing a logbook and some trinkets.
You can sign off your name in it can leave it there for the next lucky person to find. This is a great game for fitness because it involves a lot of hiking, which is great for cardio. It also allows you to get a sense of adventure, like you’re searching for treasure.
These caches are located all around the world, so you’re sure to have some in your area. You can sign up on their website and use apps to find the cache locations. Some people have found success in fitness based video games, which have you perform various cardio-intensive actions in order to complete objectives and advance through the story. This is a better option for those that prefer to stay inside, but still want to get a fun workout in.
