Military Diet Plan

Make the gym a priority

It is hard to fit going to the gym into a busy schedule.  Some people end up blowing it off and not going.  Make the gym a priority and you won’t have to worry about it!  Put a special place in your daily planner or schedule just for the gym.  If you have a specific time scheduled for going that works for you it will be just like going to class or work!  You will see it as something you have to do rather than an option you have to make time for.  If you absolutely cannot fit the gym in one day or you’re just a fitness junkie check out my blog on at home workouts for tips!
