Get prepared. Be determined to go to the gym for a work out as often as you can, don’t make excuses. There are different membership plans, the recommended plan is the pay monthly, this is a great motivation to attend

Get Ready. Go get a nice kit, you want to look nice even as you work out and as in other areas of our lives, when you feel good in what you are wearing, it boosts your confidence, so your gym kit should not be any different. Don’t be afraid to try out colors and different styles, but ensure they are comfortable, appropriate and make you feel good.

Join with a friend. Going to the gym with a friend or with friends is a great way to stay motivated, but don’t let this be an excuse not to join, the gym is also a great place to meet and make new friends so get to it.

Get inspired don’t get intimidated. It is easy to skip out on going to the gym because you think the others look better than you do, well, if they were perfect, they would not be in the gym in the first place, so get inspired and not intimidated, remember this is for you and not for anyone else.

Choose activities you enjoy. The gym is full of different work out activities, so choose the ones you are most comfortable with and activities that you enjoy, if you enjoy what you are doing, you would do it often and time flies when you are enjoying yourself.

Be focused. Sometimes, you don’t feel like going to the gym for a workout but you have to keep at it. Be focused on what you want, be determined to go for a work out, even if it is for half an hour only, you will be happy you did.

Mix it up. Don’t stick to one activity, mix it up once in a while, try out other activities and find the ones you enjoy, keeping at just one activity can be boring.

Get good music. Music is essential to your going to the gym, listening to a great mix of fast and work out music before, during or after your work out will put you in the mood and put you in the right frame of mind, so get your music and enjoy.
