The gym can be a distracting place to work out, and it's easy for your mind to wander from the task at hand when you're chugging away on a cardio machine. This is one reason I like to print my interval routines before heading to the gym — it forces me to stay alert and I get a better workout. However, one thing has become clear: Placing my flimsy paper on the machine's minishelf just doesn't cut it.
Your movement causes vibrations in the machine, which can result in your printout falling to the floor. Rather than risk interrupting a killer workout, consider taping your sheet to something sturdy to eliminate the chances of this happening. Attach the sheet to the back of your iPod if you use one, affix it to your water bottle, or tape it to your magazine. Problem solved!
