Five Fun Workout Tips

dot 1. Workout With Friends And/Or Family: dot

    For me this does the trick. I love working out with a few friends. It also increases the likelihood of you showing up at the gym.

    Make sure that the person or people that you bring have the same goals and interests. That way you two will most likely be doing the same routine and he/she can spot you or help you out when needed.
