Boredom-Busting Full Body Treadmill Workout

*This post was almost titled: A Workout for Ridiculously Distracted People.*

Believe me when I tell you there are days when I myself have to dig ultra deep for the motivation to get my body moving. Like everyone else, I can always think of a million other things I’ve got to get done. On a couple of occasions I’ve found myself standing in front of the treadmill, my feet like lead holding down the willpower to step on-board and I’ve thought “I am so not up for this right now.”

The defining factor that gets me through that moment and pushes me to get it done is that I know better. I know that when I think I can’t possibly focus on fitness because my mind is too busy mulling over other to-do’s, a workout is exactly what’s going to re-focus me. I also know that my mind is usually most clear when I’m exercising. When it comes down to it, working out gives me a better perspective.

So on one of these particularly under-motivated days last month I just told myself to hop on the treadmill and see where my body took me. Here is that workout. It’s boredom-free, distraction-friendly and full of just the right amount of focus for unfocused people.

Trainer’s Note: I usually warm up for 5 minutes before I start my workouts. Jogging, jumping jacks, butt kicks, etc.

Keep your chin up and sweat it out!
