Mix it up!
Doing the same exercise over and over again can get pretty mundane and lead to quick mental burnout. So instead of growing bored with the same workout each day, try switching it up! If you’re really focused on cardio, alternate between different machines like the stair climber, rower, and elliptical. Or maybe instead of hitting the gym, take your workout outside! Keeping it interesting will help to keep you motivated and help fight boredom.
Create a plan and STICK. TO IT.
I know I just said to mix it up, but right now I’m talking about your schedule - plan, plan, plan! If you wait until there is a convenient time to workout, you might not ever get one in. Each week, block off time for each day you plan to workout. Make sure you have enough time to get to where you’re going, get a full workout in, and to shower afterwards. Making a plan will also help you coordinate with your workout buddy - it makes it a lot harder to hit that snooze button if you’ve already committed to meeting someone at the gym!
