Being paid for the gym can leave you feeling guilty for wasting money if you choose not to go to the gym regularly.

Of course, it's much easier to be willing to go to the end of the series when you have a lot of people watching, but if you do not force yourself, end up cheating more often and when you notice your repetitions will have diminished and you will not be getting any further benefit from the workout at home.
How to avoid:
- Unfortunately we human beings are egocentric, and being admired does well for the musculature, since it caresses the ego. But you have to think that it is working out for you, and that if you fail to go to the end, you will not get any gain from your effort;

4. Lack of Motivation
Anyone who is accustomed to the wide variety of gym equipment may feel a bit frustrated when training at home with fewer resources at their disposal. But have you heard that more is not always the same? Well then, let's see the next.
How many handsets did you use regularly? Or how often did you alternate the treadmill with the elliptical and then with the spinning? Few, right?
The vast majority of people attending the gym are limited to a few appliances, and the good The news is that with creativity it is possible to reproduce at home many of the exercises offered in the Academy. And not to mention that washers and body weight may be better for muscle development than most large sophisticated machines.

This does not mean, however, that you should train on the couch while someone watches TV or children play on the floor. In addition to distractions, you will not be in the "mood" of exercising, and most likely your home workout will not pay off as it should.
- Even if you do not have an ample place to do a mini gym at home try at least organizing a small space where you can work out without having to worry about furniture or people interrupting your training. It can be in the backyard, on the bedroom floor, or even in the living room, as long as that is your space during your home workout;
- For those who have a little more space, the ideal is to create the "training corner a place where all your equipment and where you know you will be able to really train as if you were at the gym. This does not only mean having more equipment, but rather having a space that permanently reminds you to train and that is associated with physical activity.
