View Full Version : Honeymooning at the Gym!

I just joined a brand new gym.

I was going to one (a year or so ago) quit...and never returned.

So far this week, I've worked out for an hour every single day. Go ME!

Problem is, I get bored really easily and am afraid I am going through yet another gym "honeymoon period".

How do you guys keep your gym workouts interesting? I can only watch The View on the treadmill so many times before I get bored out of my mind. http://wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif

Any good tunes you can recommend?

How do you mix things up to make it interesting?

HA! You are too funny. I never thought about it that way. (Now *that* would keep things interesting...but DH might not be real thrilled!) http://wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif

For starters I would not go to the gym every day. You only get overtrained and this often express itself as not having any lust to train. Keep it to 4 days a week and it stays much more fresh.

Do something different every day. If you don't already do it start doing some weight training. This way it is never the same and you don't get bored.

Hope it helps.

Really Scolly? That's great advice. I've been going daily...and am concerned that I will burn out pretty quickly.

That makes sense actually. I've been pushing myself a bit hard. My 35th birthday (or is it 34th?) is in two months and my goal is to be in better shape in my mid thirties than I was in my 20's. =)

Needless to say, I've had to *really* push myself! =)

Hi Tracie,
I use my walkman and listen to my favorite music and a lot of selfhelp CD's
they seem to make the time go by faster and I have lost a few pounds in the process,I listen to Dr's Oz and Roizen's advice, Have you heard Dr Roizens CD "live younger....Die older"? he tells you how you can reverse your age by
5...10...or even 20 years. I hope I've helped.
