I was so motivated for training before I went to Europe then obviously I didn’t do any training while I was away instead walking for miles every day. Since I’ve been back my motivation for the gym has been as low as it’s ever been. Why does this happen?

I’m still going but my workouts are lacklustre and uninspired. It doesn’t help that my gym just doesn’t seem to give a rats arse about it’s members. Equipment takes ages to get fixed and at 6am I’ll walk in to a big pile of yesterdays used towels in the locker room waiting to be dealt with. They also rearranged the gym floor about 6 months ago and I don’t think a weight has been put back in the right spot on the rack since. It’s blatant that no one cares.

Some friends are going to take me to their gym for a trial run over there to check it out. It’s a little more than I’m paying where I am but it’s a great gym and it even has things like handstand classes. It might be just what I need to shake things up and get back on track.
