Here’s a fact almost everyone in my environment knows about me: I don’t like sporting. No me gusta los deportes, je n’aime pas les sports, Ich hasse Sport, ik hou niet van sporten. It all comes down to it. I suck at throwing and catching a ball and my condition has achieved a level of -10. I also don’t like sweating, which kind of holds back my movitivion to improve my “sporting level” as well.

But, I still had to find a way to at least keep in shape and stay healthy. So I tried a lot of things and eventually I ended up doing mostly the kind of stuff that I actually enjoyed doing!

Before we start with my absolute top 3 (which mostly exist of cardio) I also want to give you another great tip when it comes down to toning and training your abs, legs, arms, booty and more. A lot of you guys might already know her, but my absolute favorite health guru is Cassy Ho, from Blogilates. Her work-outs are very effective and fun, she has a lovely and bubbly personality and ugh, she’s just amazing. Go check her out!

Okay, so my absolute favorite way to exercise is probably dancing. I recently just bought Just Dance 2015 and I am completely hooked. I also just enjoy watching So You Think You Can Dance a lot and I actually used to do ballet and streetdance when I was little, so it is save to say that I am quite fond of dancing in general. I am even thinking about joining a dancing-group again in the near future! If you also get a happy feeling when you dance (or even when you watch other people dance) just like I do, then try this! You could improvise at home, join a dancing group, buy Just Dance or just go on Youtube, it doesn’t matter. In fact, it doesn’t even matter if you are good at it! But I can guarantee that not only your cardioperformance and weightloss will improve if you dance daily, but your happiness will as well! So get up and move your feet, baby!

I am also reaaaally fond of (kick-)boxing! Boxing trains your whole body, you will get gorgeously toned arms and legs and just a really fit body in general. So effective! It is also a really good stress-reliever as well, I promise you. If you are in trouble with work or school, than I recommend giving this a try. You will be surprised how good you feel afterwards.

My last work-out fav, and this one is simple yet super effective: Skip rope.

I don’t find this just as fun to do as boxing and dancing, but it actually burns a lot of fat! If you do this for about 10 minutes per day, you will be in shape before you know it!

I still have to admit that even though I love doing these sports, I don’t take the time to do them as much as I want to. I am going to try working out more this month, but right now I still am not in the position where I want to be. If I am honest, I am still not close to my bikini body because most of the time I am too lazy to get up and work out, but I am for sure that if I do this exercises, my body will be in shape asap!
