Imagine you walk into a gym, you see five treadmills arranged next to each other and only one person is using one of them. Now, will you use the treadmill right next to the person or will you choose other which is few machine away?
I bet that you will go for the latter.
However, I recommend you to use the machine, be it treadmill, stationary bike or elliptical trainer, next right to someone.
Some days, you are not very motivated to push yourself. Going to the gym is just another routine activity. So, working out next to a person who is working hard may give you a little boost. Use his passion to drive yourself up. Even if that person is exercising at slower intensity, you will still feel good if you do it slightly harder than him. This little trick has worked well for me. I always tell myself, I need to run longer than him before I stop.
No harm. Give this little game a try. If you are lucky, exercising next to a sexy babe or good looking hunk will give you an unexpected encounter. Good luck!
