If you’re like millions (if not billions) of people around the world, you want to lose weight and keep it off. Often, though, working toward that goal isn’t all that fun and is easy to push to the side after a short time.

Regular exercise can improve your health, give you more energy, and help you get better sleep. However, finding a routine that gets you into the groove of working out regularly (and perhaps even looking forward to it) can be a little tricky.

If you’re tired of not losing weight, check out these tips on finding an exercise routine that may be exactly what you need.

Cardiovascular Exercises

One of the most popular areas of focus is cardio, simply because with the variety of exercises to choose from, there’s one virtually everyone can enjoy. Cardiovascular exercises strengthen the heart and lungs and improve the efficiency of your body’s oxygen use. This, in turn, helps increase endurance and vitality, keeps you from feeling tired throughout the day, and makes exercise and everyday activities easier.

  1. Running

Whether outdoors or on a treadmill, grab your earbuds, turn on your favorite upbeat playlist, and get that heart rate up.

  1. Cycling

Bike around the neighborhood, or better yet, hit a local trail, and enjoy nature while getting a workout that’s easy on the joints and great for building leg strength.

  1. Swimming

Get a full-body workout while having some fun in the pool. Swimming is a low-impact exercise that’s perfect for anyone suffering from joint issues or injuries.

  1. Jumping rope

Gets your heart rate up while improving coordination and agility.

  1. Rowing

Raises the heart rate and targets multiple muscle groups, making it a fantastic full-body workout that you may want to add to your routine.

Strength Training Exercises

Work on toning muscles in your arms and legs while building strength, burning calories, and losing weight with resistance bands. They come in a variety of tension strengths, and you can anchor them to a wall at different heights so you can work out both your arms and your legs. You can also simply loop one around your foot and exercise almost anywhere

Simple exercises like push-ups, pull-ups, squats, and lunges can help with weight loss while helping to build strength and tone. And once again, little space is required for these exercises.

You can also try yoga or Pilates. Both focus on building strength, and no matter what type of yoga you choose, it helps strengthen your body. While both stretch your muscles, pilates offers the additional benefit of helping to improve your posture.

Lastly, weightlifting is perfect for building strength, and these days there are a lot of fitness machines that are considerably better than traditional weights as they provide options for virtually every part of your body.
