Get Dressed For The Gym


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Some days I find it difficult to motivate myself to go to the gym. Instead of getting dressed in regular clothes to take my daughter to school I put on my gym clothes and shoes (even if it's an hour or two before going). It's harder to talk myself out of going if I've already gotten dressed. I know many people work, so this is not an option but you could make a point to change into your gym clothes before leaving work so you have no excuses on your way home.

    Super idea! I take my gym bag to work and change before I leave the office so I am ready to go when I get to gym. This way I am not tempted to go home to change or grab my bag and stay there! emoticon

    Great idea! I do the same thing. I get dressed for the gym then drop my granddaughter off at school then drive to the gym.
