Hello! Recently it's been so hard to encourage myself to exercise. Evidently my downstairs neighbors like to be up during the night (I hear their alarm at 11 at night/4 in the morning and them yelling during the night) and sleep during the day. When I get home from work in the afternoons, if I try to exercise, they start banging on the ceiling to get me to stop. I stop exercising at nine if I am doing it that late. I don't want to be a bad neighbor but I also want to exercise. I've never had this complaint before. I used to exercise all the time at my old apartment and never got this reaction. I've never been able to get in the mood to take walks outside because I can't keep up the pace to keep myself in fat burning mode.
What can I do to help the noise I might make jumping up and down? I saw some pads at walmart that showed noise reduction capabilities but it only showed it underneath exercise machines. Would it work if I was doing aerobics? Even if it just helped it a bit, it'd be an improvement.
