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
