Gym Memberships don't have to cost a bundle

In our small town, the community centre offers a gym with a weight room and cardio equipment as well as a daily classes. Membership is only $50 for 3 months. Even if i go just once a week for a change of routine it is still worth it.

strength training rep count

When doing strength training, I find I can begin to get frustrated when I'm counting reps, particularly on the third set. The solution for me is to count down instead of up. I start with 10, 12, or whatever my top count is and count down to one. Then I get more excited as I go bc I'm almost done.

Walking at work

I found it hard to get exercise in with work and family and all. Instead of calling someone, I walk to their desk now. I also try to take a couple of breaks during the day and walk at least 2 miles throughout the work day. Great way to break up the day and get some exercise.
