Blitz Boredom By Shaking Up Your Workout

by Camilla Walker on Wednesday 10 July 2019


If variety is the spice of life, it might be time to sprinkle a little seasoning on your workout to keep things interesting. Doing the same thing over and over can make us feel like we’re in a bit of a rut, but changing your approach to working out can be the simple reset you need.

Humans are creatures of habit, but a tired daily routine can cause us to feel like we’ve hit a snag. When it comes to working out and keeping healthy, things can become a little stale if we don’t shake them up. We want convenience and consistency, but still want to feel challenged and importantly, continue to see results.


Sticking to the same routine day in and day out can lead to burnout and boredom – you might even feel like giving up altogether because it’s just not motivating enough anymore. That’s why it’s important to find some variety in your exercise routine; whether it’s weights one day, cardio another and a yoga class the next, this variety can help change how you feel about your workout, so that you look forward to it, rather than dread it. Keeping things fresh is not just about the physical side of exercising, but also the mental side too.


Variety comes in spades at Virgin Active. We understand that everyone has a preferred way to workout, so we cater to all different styles. Whichever way you choose to sweat, we’ve got you covered with:

  • Yoga
  • Reformer Pilates
  • HIIT (we like to call it Grid)
  • Barre
  • Boxing 
  • Cycle
  • Traditional group exercise classes 
  • And many more

Enjoy more exercise choices

When you walk into one of our gyms, you can expect a whole lot more choice than what you might be used to at a regular gym or boutique studio. Virgin Active has so many options to keep you motivated, and there’s nothing like choice to combat boredom! Book your tour today.

Convenience is key

Back to routine for a minute, not all tried and tested methods need to be replaced – sometimes not having to think about the nitty-gritty can be the trick to make working out that little bit easier. Having a Virgin Active membership means everything you need is under the one roof. That’s less to think about, such as knowing when classes start, how long your commute will take, where the exercise studios are located and who your trainer is. It’s just another way to curb your boredom so you can focus on enjoying a great, varied workout.

Our newest club in Sydney CBD is opening 25 July 2019 and we can't wait to share with you the variety we're offering. From the massive gym floor split into expertly engineered zones for optimal solo or Personal Training, to the 5 group exercise studios catered to the group exercise classes you are loving right now, Virgin Active is what you've been looking for in a health club.
