Your gym sessions may seem productive, but most of the time you may end up not doing much at all.

Read up on these reasons you should quit watching The Real House Wives, step off that treadmill, and switch up your workout routine:

1. It’s a non-stop yawn fest.

2. You can’t remember the last time you actually felt the “burn.”

3. Gym time is equally social media time.

4. Your mind is set on cardio being on the elliptical or treadmill.

5. The last “workout” song you downloaded was from the early 2000s.
