5 TIPS for a Better Workout

If you really are short on time and need to get the most from your trip to the gym, remember the "5".

#1. One size does not fit all.  If the lady running on the treadmill makes it looks easy, I can guarantee you she has been doing it for a while.  Start out walking. Be nice to your joints and they will last longer.

#2. First impressions can be a little scary.  If you are a "newbie", get help.  If you are not going to ask for help, start easy with the workout and build.  Rome wasn't built in a day and you won't be either.

#3. Get to the point.  Be friendly, but keep the "hello" short.  You are there for a reason. Get to work.  Starbucks is for socializing.

#4. What you do is as important as what you don't do.  Do you find yourself doing your favorites over and over again? I have my favorites, too, but adding something new will get you something new.

#5.  Focus on the most important issue.  Why are you exercising? The answer will help you to stay motivated.
