Committing to a gym schedule IS a challenging task especially when you have a family, a job or a social life! Here are a few tips on how you can stay in the routine that you strive for and create daily!
1) Get in Gear: keep your gear near by! Keep the gym bag under your desk, in the trunk or invest in a locker at the gym with all you need in it. No excuses, no forgotten shoes! Be prepared with your gear on hand and you will be more likely to stick to your routine.
3) The full monty: Most gyms offer EVERYTHING you need in one place: swimming, yoga, cardio machines and classes and some even childcare and spa's. Often you can get an orientation from a trainer so you know just what the value of your membership is. If you realize and take advantage of ALL you can do at your gym then you will be more excited to go and find more reason.
4) It has to work out: for you. Make it convenient to go to to the gym! Find something you like that is close to your house, or better yet on your way home from work. We all know that going home and then back out into the night to hit the gym is a lot harder than the other way around. Some companies have fitness centers and workout rooms on site that are easy to access and cheaper than your conventional gym. What ever you do, do it and make working out work for you.
