Recently, I read a Business Insider article that listed 17 ways to trick yourself into going to the gym. Some of my favorites are leaving your gym bag at your office, thinking about the money you're pouring into a gym membership, mixing up your workout, entering any and all gym challenges, and already expecting not to enjoy every moment of working out.

We all know how important it is to stay fit. What are some ways you motivate yourself to go to the gym, especially during a rough week?

I just go to relieve stress, chill out, and listen to music. These are things I don't typically do throughout the day so...

That's pretty much it...after while you'll realize how much better you'll feel and then it just becomes a habit.

I'm talking about liquid. Rich enough to have your own jet. Rich enough not to waste time. Fifty, a hundred million dollars, buddy. A player. Or nothing.

What motivates me most is the results that I see. After a while, though, you realize that only other dudes admire them :(

If you can get yourself to start hitting the gym regularly, you will hit a point where you will feel like crap unless you go to the gym.

I personally get moody now if I don't hit the gym at least once over a 2-3 day period.

It helps to have a gym buddy though. I used to work out with a friend all the time in college and we could motivate each other to go. On the days I didn't feel like going or didn't feel like doing an extra set, having someone else to rely on is great. The competition is great too, few things are more humiliating than having to pull weights off the bench that your friend was just on when it is your turn to do a set.

First of all, stop reading that BI garbage.
Trick yourself? Are you kidding me?

If you don't want to go then don't go.

I just run everyday. Usually around 10 miles, it gives me a couple of hours just to myself, otherwise the entire day is filled with emails from idiots.

I look at the (few) schlubby, rotund masses in the office and think hell no, that's never going to be me. Every sighting/encounter usually gives me four days worth of motivation.

Discipline and caffeine.

I go to a gym with a bunch of really, really hot girls. I found it was much more motivating than when I went to another gym with very few girls at all.

Haha, no in my case I go to Gold's Gym, but I go to a location that is inundated with some of the hottest girls in America. Of course, I'm presented with a false sense of choice since the gym, in turn, is inundated with some of the best looking men, at least on the east coast.

If you have to trick your self to do something you got bigger problems than going to the gym
