Jill Daddario, a local certified personal trainer and the founder of Go Further Fitness, said this according to WGRZ.

Getting creative with workouts and a lot of times the gym helps people be consistent and it gets them to go to a certain location where their mindset is in working out.  So that transition, helping people find the motivation at home and stay consistent with it is something us as trainers have had to help our clients with.
