Avoid training late at night
With the growing popularity of 24hr gyms it may be tempting to squeeze in a late night workout. If you find yourself after hours and craving a workout, opt for a body weight workout at home.
Keep your ears clear in the locker room
It’s a good idea to turn your mp3 off just before entering the locker room and take your headphones off or earbuds out. Locker room can be more secluded, so it’s a good idea to keep your ears open.
Vary your schedule
This tip can be difficult for people because of work and family obligations, but if you can, try to vary the days and times you go to the gym. It’s best to avoid routines that can be easily tracked.
