Too many people go to the gym feeling it's a chore. Something they would rather not do but have to.

This is a terrible way to spend all the time that it takes to make meaningful progress.

Plus, one of the absolutely biggest reasons people actually succeed with their ventures is whether they can stick to it and keep grinding. If you're bored while doing so, that'll make it so much harder.


Don't equate "getting in shape" with having to get on the treadmill and just because you want to grow muscle it doesn't mean you're stuck lifting barbells. There's a lot of other ways to challenge yourself!

Try some strongman training, pick up some kettlebells, look up bodyweight training, or join a gymnastics club.

There really is something out there for everyone and sometimes it's good to just try something new.
