Battling The 2012 Resolution Revolution

To gym or not to gym, that is the question... and that question is particularly appropriate during the first couple of weeks of the year when the world decides to make a lifestyle change, join a health club, and crowd the walls that were so spacious just weeks before the New Year.

I have a couple of tactics that have helped me get to the gym during the Resolution Revolution and actually get a workout in, including treadmill AND pool sessions.

Here 5 quick tips that might help you out too:
  • Go at 4:00am or 5:00am (or after 9:00pm if it suits you)
  • Prepare an alternate workout that uses less popular gym gear
  • Do a circuit workout using the next available open weight machine
  • When in doubt, go to body weight basics (crunches, push-ups, dips, etc...)
  • Do pool workouts late night just before the pool closes
