After a long hard day of working for an energy firm, a day at the gym may seem like the worst idea ever imaginable, however, change your mindset about how you see the gym and you will begin to see why it could be the best remedy after a stressful day at work
Why to go to the gym after work
I used to be that guy. I would be working an 8 hour shift, and just 2 hours into it, i began to dread something, the thought of a push workout at 6pm. (For those of you who don’t know what a push workout is it is the a chest, shoulders and triceps workout). Typically this workout would take me up to 2 and a half hours, hence the bad feeling towards it. However, lately I have changed my perspective on this matter, here are 10 powerful ways that going to the gym after work can really help you.
1.) It could genuinely make you feel on top of the world
Sometimes there is nothing better than the feeling of pushing yourself in the gym, it’s as if once you push past the pain, you get a sudden energy burst and can actually walk out of the gym feeling more energized than you were when you walked in! Simply put, putting in a solid effort in a post-work gym session could make you feel real good.
2.) You will gain a new outlook on life
The feeling after a gym session can be put right up there with the best feelings in life. Once, you have given it your all those endorphin’s are released and everything seems so clear. Your belief will strengthen, and regardless what your goals are, you will believe and that is what its all about. As Earl Nightingale once said ‘Believe and succeed’
3.) It will help you realize your TRUE potential
There is nothing better than the feeling of setting and achieving goals. Working out (if you stick at it) allows you to break past those barriers of what you believed you once were, and transform into a new force entirely. The sky is the limit, and even though work can be draining, the thought of smashing a goal of yours in the evening at the gym may bring up that excitement and allow you to actually enjoy your workout and also have something to look forward to when you finish work.
4.) You will fall into healthy friendship circles which can last for life
In life it’s never good to fall into a bad crowd, regularly going to the gym after work can allow you to make all kinds of new friends. Also its worth mentioning that birds of a feather flock together and that you are the 5 people who you spend the most time with, therefore its worth choosing wisely. The gym is a good place so start.
5.) Your future self will thank you
Have you ever looked back and thought of what could’ve been had you stuck to something for a whole year? That’s exactly how I feel about my YouTube channel (which I will mention in a future article). Sticking to something and being consistent will help you reap the rewards later down the line. Do it for your future you and you will look back in a years time and be proud you made the decision and stuck to it. OK, I know we are only talking about going to the gym after work and we haven’t even mentioned what form of training / goals you are aiming for, but nonetheless, go to the gym after work, stick to it, and the results will speak for themselves.
