For one, healthy exercisers can tell the difference between feeling the burn and being in pain. Pain is your body signaling that you're pushing it too far and perhaps risking injury. Challenge is good, but if you're stressing your joints or working out to the point of total fatigue, it's time to reconsider your exercise intensity.

Forcing yourself into workouts you hate — whether that's barre, or running, or hot yoga — isn't worth it, no matter how many friends tell you that any one method changed their lives. Everyone's got preferences, and mixing up workout styles helps keep your mind and your muscles engaged.
