Week 7 – Find a workout that you love
According to CityRow head trainer Lisa Niren, CPT, the “no pain, no gain” exercise mentality is outdated. The benefit to having so many options out there—seriously, boutique fitness has legit exploded—is that there’s bound to be a workout you actually enjoy.
“You won’t find me doing a workout I don’t love,” says Niren, who’s also the head of programming at Studio. “I love a good sweat and enjoy training hard, but my fitness regimen can’t feel like work.” If you’re having fun, you’re more likely to work out on the reg—which is linked to improved mood, better sleep, reduced stress, and tons of other major health benefits.
