Tip #2: Exercise with friends. It’s always more fun with others. Go play Frisbee in the park or shoot some hoops.

 

Tip #3: Join a recreational sports team. Joining a team lets you meet new people and socialize while working out.

 

Tip #4: Multi-task while you work on a treadmill, elliptical or stationary bike. It is less boring if you watch a movie or listen to music while you exercise.

 

Tip #5: Try a pedometer. And remember that you don’t have to be running full speed to get your heart pumping. So consider taking a long fast walk after school instead.

 

Tip #6: Switch up your exercise routine. Do cardio one day and weights the next. This will allow your muscles to rest and regenerate between workouts.
