Your time in the gym is special, so try these tips to get the most of your time invested!

Minimize Your Distractions

I really like to enjoy my hour in the gym, so it helps to change my phone settings to “do not disturb.” Also, I find it helpful to create a several play-lists. I create about three new playlist per month, so I can keep my workouts pumped up. Updating my play-list allows me to edit songs that break the flow of my workout.

Visit Different Gym Locations

It’s nice to have a home gym, but most gym franchises have several locations in the area. Every now and then I like to visit another location to see what the other locations have to offer. A few aspects that can vary per location could include trainers, different equipment, amenities and overall customer service. You never know what you are missing, so whenever you’re available explore different locations.
