I used to use an iPod, but it slowed my thought process way down. Now I mainly just go without anything, or else I take a friend.

Generally, the girls at the college rec center are enough to entertain me.

Entertained? I dont know if the gym is the right place to be signing up. Motivation isnt always going to be there, but you just need to keep going. There are certain mornings I'd rather stay in bed, but they'll just multiply if I dont go. For focus, I listen to the most pissed off music I have, as loud as it will go. Cardio, I can listen to mine or plug into the TV audio. I havent done cardio since fall, but that'll all be changing in 2 weeks.

I know its been said but watching women on treadmills/ellipticals is my favorite way to pass cardio time at the gym. My gym has a cardio theater(7 large tv's all on a different channel), that also helps. If neither of those are working then I go for my mp3 player.

I am thinking a portable dvd player and your favorite "adult" movie should keep you, other customers, and the employees rather entertained.

You know Jesus wasn't married. No wife lets you come home after three days with the excuse "I was dead".

with a fairly large music library, i pick a select few hundred (rap) songs that really get me going. put the ipod on shuffle and ****in rock out. i dont care if i look like a complete tool at the gym with head bobs and hand movements because the songs really get me amped and i finish my workouts better.

I dunno, gym's never worked for me. Either I never got to use the weights and machines I wanted to, or I always got into a testosterone driven competition with the other guys at the I just started working out at home. Much more time efficient and much more effective.

I suggest an ipod with some good fast paced workout music.

As much as I really really...really enjoy looking at the women at the gym...I don't recommend it if you're trying to get a good workout. Typically a smokin' woman will stop me in my tracks and slow my brain down vs. getting me pumped for a faster workout. Put your head phones on get some good tunes going and focus on your task.

I work out during my lunch break at work with 2 other guys. We talk sports and debate useless nonsense.

Go and lift and run as hard as you can. Don't take breaks, get up from one exercise and do something else then go back. When doing cardio, go as hard as you can the whole time. You won't notice the time. Then your dead exhausted and you've only been there for 50 minutes.

If getting on the treadmill try and watch in a mirror and control your form. As you get more and more tired it gets harder and harder and then treadmill won't you go slower so the only way to compensate is to run more right.

My iPod does the trick.

I lift weights at the gym, and I run outside in the city.
