“Yes! She gets it.”
That’s what I was saying to myself watching a spot-on TED talk about fun.
Fun is a feeling, not an activity.
When asked to describe “fun,” many people list an activity like their favorite sport or dancing. But you might hate dancing, board games, or snowboarding.
True Fun is the confluence of playfulness, connection, and flow.

  • Playfulness = doing things for the sake of doing them
  • Connection = shared experiences (people's descriptions of the most fun experiences they have had are most often shared with others - and this is even true of introverts!)
  • Flow = engagement and focus cause us to lose track of time

That feeling is what is most often missing from fitness. And it’s practically a foundational belief of the Funtensity approach to fitness.
Life drains us. Fun fills us up.
Fun unites us.
Fun is a distillation of life's energy.
Fun is not a result of human thriving; it is a cause.
Give yourself permission to get a kick out of your own life.
Go get yourself a physical challenge (to provide fitness) that also delivers the experience of playfulness, connection, and flow.

DO try this at home. Especially when you want a quick workout that is fun and free of equipment. Save a trip outside in the cold to the crowded gym. More fun than you thought possible when doing high-intensity interval training for 22-minutes.

No equipment necessary.

But a rubber chicken is recommended. :)
