Finding new fun ways to pass the time can be tough, and finding the motivation to work out can be just as hard. If you’re tired of the same old activities or workout routines, a great way to solve both problems is to combine them! Reignite your love for fun activities and exercising by finding activities that bring you the best of both worlds. If you’re looking for out-of-the-box activities and exercising styles, then look no further than this list! Here are some activities to try out this year that are full of fun and gains!
Paintball and gel blasters
Kick starting this list of fun activities that give you a workout is paintball and gel plasters. What makes these games fun is the sense of adventure and suspense you feel! Sprinting through obstacles, climbing, squatting, and jumping get your blood pumping while you play. If you prefer to play at home or in your backyard, get the latest rifle gel blasters so you can get to shooting in the comforts of your own home. Live out your James Bond or FPS game fantasy with your friends and family, and also get a workout in!
Go on a hike
If you’re more of an outdoorsy person than a video game person, combine exercise with fun by hiking! Whether you’re a beginner or a professional mountaineer, there’s always a hill to climb with a great view. Hiking improves your circulation and heart health and gets you those toned legs you’ve always wanted. As well as being good for the body, hiking is also good for the soul, and nothing beats that well-earned, beautiful view! So plan out a route, pack some food, and make a day of it with your family and friends on your next journey uphill!
Indoor rock climbing
If you’re looking to work out while you have fun, try out the hot new hobby: indoor rock climbing! Indoor rock climbing is perfect for those who don’t like to hike, but still want to have fun going up.

Whether you’re taking a dance class, playing Just Dance, or going to the club, moving to the grove is a great way to work up a sweat. If you prefer to go out instead of spending time outdoors, then dancing all night to your favorite songs is the way to go!
Although cleaning may be a necessary evil, it can be a fun and therapeutic way to work out! While liking cleaning may be polarizing for some, there’s no denying the happy feeling you get after cleaning, or those sore muscles. From wiping down windows to sweeping and re-organizing, deep cleaning takes a lot of hard work. If you’re the type of person who likes to clean and stay organized, why not make a workout of your deep cleaning? Go all out next time you clean your house and work up a sweat!
