Please leave your phone at home. Leave it in the locker, or turn it off but please do not bring your phone to the gym. Your workout is suffering because you keep stopping to check your messages. That twenty second text you just sent in the middle of your set just killed it for you. I don't think a lot of people realize how many times an hour they let themselves be distracted by their phone. When working out, these cumulative distractions add up to a less intense and less effective workout. No, you are not giving your all on the stationary bike if you are distracted by talking on the phone. One further thing, I don't want to hear your ringtone over and over again. People want to free their minds to have a peaceful workout and you are disrupting their routine. If you want to have your phone on, workout at home. Take a note of this next time you are at the gym. You will often see many people allowing their phones to lessen their workouts.
