any gym people here?



  • so i usually go to gym and i like it, but there are some days that i cant find motivation to go and work out so i just stay at home doing nothing. has someone experienced this before? how do you pass this stuff and still go to the gym by not forcing yourself?



  • I prefer to mix it up if I'm feeling too lazy to hit the gym. Exercise for the sake of it drives me crazy, so I like to make goals. I have to remind myself that I need to keep going so that I have enough stamina to do something I wouldn't be able to do in my current physical state. So I'll go on hikes or bike rides out in nature, or take a dance class. Just anything to get my body moving!



  • @OliveOlivia i’ll try to see it as a habit so i dont feel forced to go, thanks for the advice

    I have been hitting the gym on an almost religious basis for nearly 6 years now. Despite it becoming more than a habbit I still have days when I'm too tired or simply do not feel like going to the gym, I'd say 60% of my days are like that, but I still go. I go because I know I'll feel better after I'm done and if I don't go I'll feel like dogshit, not only that but I actually feel great when I'm there, it's almost like a form of meditation for me, I put my headphones on and my mind goes quiet, I don't think about anything, I just count reps and sets.

    All those things you're telling yourself, like "I'm too tired, I've already done enough work today, the wheather outside sucks, I'll go tomorrow instead" and whatever else you can think of, those are just lame excuses and you know it.
    So force yourself to go if that's what it takes, force yourself to do the uncomfortable thing, discomfort is our friend, it builds us up, we shouldn't be comfortable all the time.

    It also helps to have a goal, no matter how silly it is, no matter how long or short term it is, have a goal in mind that you know you can't reach unless you put the work in.

    I have been hitting the gym 6 times a week for about 3 years now and I have to admit It has become an habit, almost like an addiction. I feel kinda meh and often stressed out when the plans I have for the day makes me unable to hit the gym. I've had days that I was out all day, either due to work or other reasons and I still decided to hit the gym at the very last closing hours.

    That feeling of "being too tired" or "the weather sucking" or "I don't feel so good" is nothing but an excuse, so try to beat that and actually go for it, you'll feel so much better after! 🙂



  • @Sasha-M Sometimes, you just have to get yourself there.
    I used to H A T E going to the gym, but the hardest part was actually getting myself to the gym, once I'm there its very easy to start my workout and continue it, and it feels real good to finish!
    I work out at home now and I think that's also made it easier for me, I don't have to actually get to the gym, I just have to start! Once it becomes a habit its less of a burden and more of a normal activity, like going grocery shopping or walking your dog.
    What also helps me is in the mornings, I watch youtube videos of fitness "gurus" and they help motivate and inform me of different workouts. I hope some of this helps!
