What Motivates You at the Gym?

A Reader Asks: What Motivates You at the Gym?

Sugar user dpauline is getting a jump start on our community challenge and posed this question in our Get Fit For 2011 group.

Well I realized that I needed a little extra help to really kick it up with my cardio. I like the treadmill, but I wasn't giving it much effort.

I love music at the gym and my iPod is my second best friend at the gym — only second to my trainer! So I learned that instead of just listening to the songs it helped to watch the music video! The best videos are the ones that have hard bodies I admire. Right now two of my favorites are Fergie in "My Humps" and Beyoncé in "Crazy in Love."

Helps to look at where I'd like to end up looking.
