Working out is the ideal way to replenish your mind, body, and soul. From building lean muscle to conditioning your mind, working out is more than just shredding in the gym.
However, if you’re an avid exerciser, ensuring you keep fit every day can mean it becomes all-too common to get bored of your workout. When this happens, you can quickly lose the motivation and break your fitness streak.
If you’re starting to feel bored of working out, don’t fret. There’s a variety of ways to refresh the way you work out, helping you to get back on track and doing what you love to do. Keep on reading to discover Battle Ready 360’s top tips to help you when you’re feeling bored of working out.
1. Your Routine is Dated
When you first start working out, you’ll often start off with a basic routine. This routine can end up sticking with you for weeks or even months, especially as you start to become more comfortable with it. However, it’s this comfortability that can begin to take away from your work out experience. This is because you’re no longer feeling challenged both physically and mentally.
To get the most out of your workout, you need to feel as though you’re gaining or learning something. So, we recommend shaking up your routine if it’s starting to feel stale. Get some inspiration from your favourite fitness influencers, speak to your personal trainer if you have one, or do some research online to find out what sequences are best suited to you and your personal goals.
Better yet, you can take advantage of our app to discover a variety of premium fitness workouts that can be tailored to muscle gain, weight loss or overall body toning. Follow us on Instagram for motivation, inspiration and live workouts.

2. Your Equipment Needs Replacing
Let’s face it – using old, unreliable equipment can really dampen your work out, making you feel bored, uninspired, and unmotivated. In fact, it can even put you off working altogether. If your resistance bands are losing their elasticity or your grips and handles have taken some wear and tear, it’s time to replace your equipment.
The Battle Box & SF1 Trainer Bundle is ideal for those looking to get into the best physical shape possible. The kit has everything you need, including:
All this equipment, plus even more pop-up gym essentials, come in a lightweight, portable, and versatile design. This is perfect if you’re looking to change your work out location. Which brings us on to point number three…
3. You’re Always Working Out in the Same Place
Your environment plays a huge part in your workout routine. With the recent pandemic causing local gyms or favoured workout spots to close, many of us have been forced to workout in our homes. For many, this has meant setting up in one room and consistently working out in the same place.
This can have a negative impact on your workout, making it feel more like a chore than a rewarding and uplifting experience. If you have the available space, try moving to a different room, or even just change up your view to feel more inspired.
4. You Need to Rethink Your Schedule
Having a set-schedule can be a great way to ensure you’re getting in your daily exercise. Of course, some of us are naturally early birds and some are night owls. This can impact the time you choose to work out.
However, having the same old schedule can very quickly become old news. If you’re begrudgingly beginning your workout and you’re feeling sluggish, it’s probably about time you refresh your schedule.
If you have been consistently working out in the evenings, try a morning workout or vice versa. By trialling different times, you may discover unexplored energy levels and unlock great new potential.
5. Change Up Your Work Out Playlist
Music is often an essential for a great work out, with the right tracks getting you in the perfectly tuned mindset. However, if you’re listening to the same songs on repeat, they’ll inevitably get boring and become over-played.
We recommend having a look at your current playlist and reviewing your selected songs. Are they evoking the right emotions? Are they keeping you pumped and pushing forward? If not, it’s probably time to download something new to support your work out regime.
Even better, have different playlists to suit your different types of work outs. If you’re looking to smash out some cardio, choose something a little more up-tempo to get that necessary adrenaline pumping through your veins. For weightlifting, you want something to make you feel powerful, strong, and invincible.
6. You’ve Got a Mental Block
This is probably one of the biggest issues people can face when it comes to their work outs. When you’re not in the right mindset, you’ll either force yourself to work out, or just stop working out altogether. Overcoming mental blocks can be challenging, but you aren’t alone.
The BR360 app takes a holistic approach, covering three core aspects, including the mind. Offering a revolutionary insight into your own mindset, the app works to reprogramme and improve your mindfulness, helping you to develop the ability to overcome a variety of challenges.
Whether this is challenges you face in your workout routine or in daily life, we want to help you unlock your ability to adapt and overcome whatever life throws at you. This includes clearing your brain fog when it comes to your work out and getting you back on track.
