Want to Mix Up Your Workouts? Try the MINDBODY Fitness Fortune Teller

Fitness

Many of us find ourselves struggling to make decisions about everyday tasks and lifestyle activities—and that includes exercise. Experts call this ‘decision fatigue’ and its part of a wider trend caused by the almost infinite growth of choices in all areas of life.  With a million things to choose from, how is one supposed to decide what to do, let alone what workout to book? 

We decided to get a little *extra* creative when it came to fitness and beating decision fatigue. Introducing the MINDBODY Fitness Fortune Teller!  

 

What is the Fitness Fortune Teller?

At MINDBODY we’re big fans of helping you make informed choices about your fitness and wellbeing. We know that mixing up your fitness routine can boost motivation and keep workouts fresh. So, as a bit of fun, we’ve produced a Fitness Fortune Teller to help you select your next workout or wellness session.


How does it work?

Remember fortune tellers made out of loose leaf paper from your school days? Yep, we thought so! The principle was (and still is!) simple; download and assemble your Fitness Fortune Teller, pair up with a friend and ask them to pick a colour and number. You can then use the Fitness Fortune Teller to help pick a fitness or wellness activity that you can easily book on the MINDBODY app!

 

What can I find in my Fitness Fortune Teller?

From interval training to meditation, the Fitness Fortune Teller has a workout or wellness activity that can fit any activity level. The sections include: 


HIIT - Get a short burst of high-intensity cardio.
Weight training - Book a gym or free weight session for strength and fitness.
Yoga - Mix up your yoga—try Vinyasa flow, Yin or Bikram.
Run - Hit the treadmill for intense interval sessions.
Aerobics -Try boxercise, dance cardio or spinning.
Meditation- Relax and reconnect yourself with guided meditation.
Pilates -Improve flexibility, endurance and core strength.
Spin - Push yourself on the indoor bike with intense interval training. 

 

Now that you’ve checked out the Fitness Fortune Teller, here are some of our favorite tips on keeping your workouts fresh and fun!


1. Plan ahead: Schedule your workout in advance, in the morning when your mind is at its clearest.


2. Find the right fit: Use the MINDBODY app to find your workouts fast!  With easy-to-use search filters, select a studio close to you and find the fitness classes you want.

breast cancer awareness month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month—Here’s How You Can Make a Difference

Approximately 12,000 women aged 40 or younger are diagnosed with breast cancer every year*. Fortunately, there are preventative steps that we can take to help protect ourselves and each other—one of the best ones being exercise. That’s right. Not only does exercise help us release endorphins, but just 30 minutes of exercise three to four times per week can help decrease a person’s risk of developing breast cancer by 30–50%*.

This is hope in a statistic. Just by adopting a more healthy, active lifestyle, we could prevent the risk of developing breast cancer, while also inspiring others to reduce their risk as well. Keep A Breast Foundation has made doing just this their mission through their annual fundraising campaign, Fit 4 Prevention.

Every October, studios from all over the globe participate by raising money through donation-based workout classes for the Keep A Breast Foundation (KAB). They have created a national movement dedicated to educating others about breast cancer prevention through fitness and wellness—something Mindbody is extremely passionate about. Participating in your favorite activities, all while supporting, preventing, and spreading awareness about breast cancer awareness? Let’s get moving.

Encourage your favorite studio to sign up for the event

If you want to take a donation-based class at your favorite studio, encourage your favorite studios to sign up to bring your community closer together in a meaningful way. Registering is quick and easy. If you think your local studio may be interested in participating, have them check out KAB’s help pagewhere they can learn how to register for a donation-based class during the month of October. KAB even has a social media kit available to fitness studios to help them promote their donation-based classes.  

Other ways to help

Can’t find a local studio to take a donation-based class near you? Don’t worry, you can still give your support by donating directly to KAB’s website. Luckily, any time that you are moving your body and spreading the word—you’re doing your part in spreading awareness on how to help prevent breast cancer. That is beyond amazing.

This October, we hope you’ll join us in our plight to support the KAB Foundation and its mission to help prevent breast cancer through cultivating a healthier, more active lifestyle. Through movement, health, and wellness—we can reach great heights, together.
