6 Ways to Update Your Workout

Don’t get bogged down by mundane routines. Re-energize your fitness plan with these expert tips

If you: Stick to walking

Try: Jogging

Benefit: Better blood circulation, increased calorie burn

Exercise: Walk-to-run routine

Amie Hoff, a former trainer at New York Sports Club, says it’s important to slowly introduce running into your routine and gradually increase movement as your body adapts. “You want to prevent injury and burnout. It’s best to go slow and think about the long term.”

Hoff recommends that you start walking 30 minutes a few times a week. If you are already a regular walker, follow this plan for the first two weeks. Then steadily work your way up to 45- to 60-minute sessions until you are comfortable running consistently at a slow pace.
