Gym Motivation

I'm always looking for ways to trick myself into enjoying my workouts at the gym. Some great mental tricks that work for me include:

Pretending someone is coming to kidnap me. 
This is a huge motivator, because let's be honest - no one wants to get caught by the bad guy so you bet I will run as fast as possible and for however long needed. I need to get in shape in case this actually happens. 

Imagining I'm getting ready for my fitness video. 
Obviously I'm going to need a fantastic and fit body to prove to people they want to buy my video.

Turning the treadmill into a race.
Yes, I do race people on the treadmill. Doe they know? No....or maybe they do and just don't care. Regardless, friendly competition never really hurt anyone!
