Whether you are a professional athlete or trying to get your body ready for summer, everyone has days you don't feel like working out. There’s nothing wrong with missing a day here or there, but if you are feeling completely burnt out or unmotivated here are a couple tips to get you back on track.
If you’ve been to the gym recently, you’ve probably seen black round cylinders resting in the corner of the stretching area. You also might have seen people in the stretching area rolling out on those cylinders. Or you may just see two people in that same area using the cylinders as stools and chatting after a workout (I did that earlier this week lol).
Before you spend money on an annual membership, go to some gyms you’re considering, tell them you’re interested and ask for a free trial that day! Trust me they’ll let you work out for free. Test out the gym the same time you would normally go and takes notes about the staff, the culture, and the crowds until you find the best fit
