You’ve just fought your way through rush hour traffic. It’s cold and dark out, and you’re tired after a long day. Having a hard time getting motivated to go to the gym? Maybe it’s time to get to know some of those people you constantly see next to you at the gym when working out. I have days that I’m not motivated to workout, but sometimes I’ll go the gym just for the entertainment value. I’ve been going to the same location for over 5 years now, and I’ve gotten to know a lot of the members there. Having someone to joke around with and talk to can help ease the tensions of your day. However, make sure you still get in a good workout-this isn’t happy hour! Luckily for me, the guys at my gym are very intense, and I can’t slack when I’m there-they might show me up!
