20 Ways to Make Working Out More Fun

Hitting the gym doesn't have to be a bore — all it takes is adding a little fun to your average sweat session.

When I talk to friends and colleagues about their workout habits, I hear a common refrain: they'd be more inclined to hit the gym if they could just find something they liked doing. I get it. Doing stuff that feels uncomfortable or like a waste of time is no fun. Few people have ever woken up and thought, "Let's spend today doing something I don't enjoy."  

Working out can be one of life's greatest pleasures, and an easy way to get mentally and physically healthier, but for many of us, there needs to be a bit more excitement involved to make it feel worthwhile. Whether you're a novice or a pro, these tips will make working out a whole lot more fun.
