Going to the gym is a fun, popular place and I am sure you see some of your friends and people you know in there. Although this is a good thing and it makes it more social, when you really think about it you are there to do business! Did you know that using headphones can seriously help increase your focus when working out as it will reduce distractions. People are less likely to talk to you during your workout with headphones in your ears which will mean a better session for you!
Do you wear headphones or do you like to chat to other people in the gym? Even if you are working with your training partner you can still listen to your music which is going to keep you channeled into what you are doing!!
