Secrets of Success

Secretly Compete With The Person Next To You



When I go to the gym and I'm on the treadmill or elliptical I secretly compete with someone in the room. I pick one person that I want to stay on longer than and if they get off too early I just choose someone else. It helps me to push a little harder and I feel better knowing that I did more than I would have if it was just myself. emoticon

  • I started a "new" boot camp class this week and compared to my regular boot camp it isn't as challegning. At yesterday's class, I think a woman competing with me. Good for her!
