To most of us, going to the gym to workout is like another chore in our lives. Try these tips, they might help you make it feel less like a chore.
Working out in the midafternoon
Gyms are pretty slow in the hours from 2 to 4 p.m. this will be a great time to work out, no waiting till the other person get of that machine. You can even get your workout done faster and you will feel less self-conscious as well.
Have the TV off
Having the TV on in your gym might distract you from your workout and it might keep you on one machine for more than the time you are meant to. But of course at the same time, keeping the TV will get you paying less attention to the effort you’re putting on your workout. It is said that, women workout 5 percent harder when they don’t have the TV on than when they have it in. if you cant find a place in the gym where the TV is off, move to somewhere the TV is showing something you have less interest in, that way you’ll be less distracted.
Set small workout goals
Long term goals are pretty great, but having targets under it that will help you climb up to your big goal will actually make you feel like you’re getting there. Keep your motivation up by having daily goals set as well, that way you’ll want more.
Change up your routine
Sticking on to the same routine everyday will make your body too comfortable. Have a change in your workout session from 3-4 weeks. Increase you weights little by little, give the stair stepper a try (if you don’t do it normally).
Have a workout playlist

If you are on the treadmill, music with high tempo will boost your heart to step on it faster doing 5 to 15 percent harder than normal. Listen to whatever genre of music that will help you pump your spirits and get the work done.
