Many people who join a gym give up after several months for lack of motivation or because they overdo it and end up injuring muscles. Instead of flailing away at gym, enlist the help – even temporarily – of a personal trainer.

Take action: Take the time to interview a few trainers and ask to talk to their clients who have goals similar to yours. Make sure your trainer teaches you how to breathe properly and to do the exercises the right way. You’ll get more of a workout while spending less time at the gym.
