Don't overstay at the gym

It makes sense that if you pay all that money for a gym contract, you want to get the most out of your membership. Be sure to balance the time you are spending indoors on the treadmill and in studio classes with outdoor activities. Not only will it shake up your routine a bit, you may exercise differently, more intensely, calmer, or longer when you are outside. Plus, you might just soak up some much-needed vitamin D while the 40 percent of Americans who are deficient are sadly experiencing bone weakness and higher levels of crabbiness (kidding...sort of).Sun Sentinel/Carey Wagner
