Getting the motivation to go to the gym can be tricky, but having a routine before you walk in can be very helpful. You do not need to be an expert of any kind to enjoy the gym. Searching for routines on Pinterest works really well when you have no idea what you want to accomplish. 

A very common thing that is seen on Pinterest is a board for motivation. Often, pictures of girls with fit bodies are added to the motivation board along with healthy foods, workout ideas and even workout wardrobe!
