So dare to dismount your beloved elliptical machine for a week, and consider the prospect of surprising the various parts of your body, by exposing them to real challenge and endurance building. If you have no idea where to begin, ask a trainer at your gym. They will most likely be more than happy to help you come up with a sample routine or two. What people love most about circuit training is the fact that a variety of gear and equipment can be used, none of which, by the way, requires a gym membership (think free weights, medicine ball, rubber bands and a bike). Even better, you won’t even have the chance to get bored because the active and volatile nature of the session leaves your mind no choice but to remain engaged. You won’t have time to think about that chicken you plan to roast that night because your body and headspace is fully attuned to the ever-changing drills. All you really need is a sense of drive, some ingenuity to devise your circuit schedule for the week, and just enough backbone to get you out of your comfort zone.
