    Ive decided hardly no internet/cmptr time so I can devote more time in the gym. My time is limited anyway due to work and the kids....what do you sacrifice to have more gym time to take care of yourself and reach your goals?

    I would sacrifice a weekend or night out. But really theres no sacrifice since my gyms at my house so I can workout whenever I want.

    Nothing because gym time is the only me time I get. Theres no "sacrifice" because its not a burden but a pleasure. A better question for me would be to ask what i would sacrifice my gym time for.icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm with Drypin. For me, it usually comes down to sleeping in an extra hour or working out. Sleeping more actually gives me less energy during the day than working out. However the sleep still win sometimes. icon_smile.gif

    Gym time isn't a sacrifice - and if I'd rather go bicycling or something I do that instead.

    Gym is both a booster for more energy and a great time to blank out....every two days...and never regret a day at the gym for the past five years

    I've skipped dates to go to the gym instead. And the gym was more worthwhile than the guys I skipped on. icon_twisted.gif

    I usually stay in on Saturday nights so I can get up early Sunday mornings to go to the gym...like a previous poster said, it's not really a sacrifice because it's the only "me" time I get during the week, and I have the whole day on Sunday to enjoy without a hangover. An added benefit is that a lot of hot guys go to my gym on Sunday mornings ;-)

    Sanity. I'm up at 6am prep for work, teach, finish work then rush to the station, take two trains, workout and then two trains back to where I live.
    My gym isn't convenient to get to and it's a long day but it's worth the slog.

    I've also kinda given up drinking, in that I have martial arts on Saturday mornings and gym in the afternoons. So it would be a pain to head from my town to the city then back home and back into the city to drink. A hangover would stop me going to the gym on Sunday.

    I've managed to keep dating and going to the gym but I make the guys wait until after I've been to the gym.

    Time to hang out with my friends, but now my friends come to my gym so we all work out at the same time icon_biggrin.gif but we don't talk to each other since we're so into our own routine

    TV time. It just makes me more selective in what I do watch. Sorry reality shows.

    TV and Magic: the Gathering tournaments (secondary income). But I'd rather lift when I'm at Magic half the time anyway.

    I don't sacrifice anything. I find time between classes, work, and social life to go.

    I like going to the gym. I dont think you should be going to the gym if you feel like you have to sacrify something...

    Gym schedule always comes first. Everything/everyone needs to be re-arranged if there is a conflict. icon_wink.gif
    Gym time is a huge stress relief and a great discipline enforcer.
    Cheers,

    Nothing... Going to the gym is part of my daily schedule, just as its going to work and sleeping. I had to let go of a few associates because my lifestyle changing and it didn't agree with theirs. I wouldn't call it a sacrifice because it was a change for the better.

    There is no sacrifice, the gym is like oxygen and water to me. It's an essential part of my day and I don't feel like I have to trade anything else in order to have it. It's part of my elemental core. Truly.
