“Hi Reh-Fit! I have been working out regularly for six months now but have been doing the same exercise routine every time I come. Recently, I have been feeling bored from doing the same thing over and over again and haven't noticed any improvement with my fitness level. Are there any benefits of changing my workout routine?” Reh-Fit Member

It’s hard for many people to get in the habit of working out regularly. Once individuals get into a consistent routine they usually stick to doing the same workout over and over again. While this routine is better than getting no exercise, people really aren’t benefiting as much as they could if they were changing their workout from time to time.  
Some of the benefits that people can achieve from changing their routine include:
Increased motivation – doing the same thing over and over can be boring and cause a reduction in motivation. Changing workout routines can make things more interesting and challenging.

Advances performance – variety in any type of training is the key to gaining results. When people do the same thing over and over again their body eventually adapts and works more efficiently, to achieve the same task.  Changing routine allows the body to adapt to a new stimulus and improve.

Prevent injuries – when people do the same workout movements over and over again, they may not give the muscles adequate time to recover, which can put them at risk of injury through overuse. Changing your routine can result in working other muscles and preventing them from becoming overused.

Improves brain health – performing the same exercises over and over again does not challenge the brain.  Learning new skills and routines can keep peoples brains engaged and active.
