The Cure for Workout Boredom
Late nights at the office coupled with family obligations and attempting to still have a social life can all make working out feel like a pipe dream. Who has time for hours logged on the elliptical and hundreds of squats? Not to mention, those old moves aren’t exactly inspiring us to bump fitness to the top of our to-do list.
Shake up your routine with these tips from AntiGravity® Fitness Founder, Christopher Harrison. As a world-class athlete, Broadway dancer, and award-winning aerial choreographer, Mr. Harrison helps us turn the repetitive into an exciting new regime with these mind-stimulating, benefit maximizing techniques:

4. Engage Your Brain“When I do any long distance training is when I study new languages,” says Mr. Harrison. There are terrific downloads you can listen and repeat. You’ll be surprised how much you will grasp after a short amount of time.
