Bored at the gym: how to keep my head in the game?

I want to go to the gym, but the gym is so boring
. Reading books/listening to music/watching TV during compatible exercises (i.e. no books with free weights) doesn't seem to help. How can I keep myself stimulated so that I can get through more than 30 minutes of working out?

FYI: I have ADHD. I suspect that's part of why I find this so difficult. Also, for at least this month, I really want to learn how to exercise in a gym in a meaningful and useful way. I can do other kinds of non-gym exercise later.
