Many people have lost the pleasure in going to the gym. It is often seen as a chore and is no longer enjoyable. This negative attitude towards exercising leads to people working out less, being less productive during workouts and eventually causes people to stop going to the gym altogether. One of the reasons why working out is less enjoyable is because people often fall into the same routine. These workouts get worn out and boring. Working out does not need to feel this way! Try these simple tips to improve your workouts and make  them more enjoyable.

Workout tracking. Tracking workouts is a great way to implement competition. If you are driven by competition and meeting new goals, this can be a source of motivation for you. Fitness trackers keep count of a variety of things, such as calories burned, duration of workouts and even steps taken throughout the day. These benchmarks can serve as new goals for the next workout.

Workout buddy. Working out with a buddy is great for motivation and for entertaining conversation during the workout. Exercising with a friend also provides accountability. Holding each other accountable for continuing your workouts is an important part of sticking with your workouts beyond a rut.
