Hmmm this is a very good question.  Lately I have not been enjoying my workouts, but I think that is mainly attributed to me being in such terrible shape.  When I was in better shape I did enjoy them more.  There are peaks and valleys I guess, just don't have the proper motivations right now.

I always enjoy the feeling I get just before I hit the gym - it's the expectation of sensing you'll have a good workout.

Whenever I train it never feels like a chore unless I'm ill or overtired (which is rare).

Obviously some workouts are more successful than others - I may exceed my goals for the day or I may fall short. Either way - it's the process that drives me and I never dread going to the gym - if it's not enjoyable, then you should be asking yourself why you are bothering to do it.

For me it hits hard when I do that first set and I think to myself, "Oh man, this is just 1 set...I have 15 more to go" or whatever. That's when the dread feeling sets in, but it last usually only for a moment or two then I don't even think about it any more. I think about the 2nd or 3rd exercise I see the pump, I feel the work being done, and I really begin to enjoy my workout.

Your workout should only consist of one set - the one you're on.

It's not like I think about it during the set. I don't at all. I'm focused on each and every set, not worrying about the one before or the one coming next. The thought arises AFTER that first set. I think, "wow...that was kind of rough and painful...got 15 more sets of this ahead"

I enjoy my workouts...for what they're worth.  We obviously have a gym at my work so I quit my regular gym.  I workout during lunch...so I only get about 50 min.  So when I'm in there I don't have too much time, but it allows me to get away from my desk...so that's nice too.

Hm, never really thought about it. I hate getting up in the mornings and going. That's always a drag. Once I am there, I definitely enjoy my workouts. Obviously, this waxes and wanes during the year, but overall I enjoy working out.

I love working out. It does nothing but make me feel better. It's like a high. And I'm addicted. Being in your body your entire life is a good reason to have a good one right? A good quote, "The body is a projection of the mind."

Lifting weights and doing cardio is like hitting yourself in the head with a baseball bat.  It really hurts but it feels so good when you stop.

Hi All,

Yes, exercise is the real fun. But, You must perform exercise under the guidance of trainer if you want to enjoy at the time of exercising. I enjoy my exercise with my personal trainer at home that is  vibration plate.

Listen to me, a few years back, explain how someone with your genetics should train and eat. This will be the greatest information you have ever heard.
