I joined the gym

Postby me11 » Fri Aug 13, 2010 3:59 pm

Ok, I know I just bought an exercise bike and I said I was gonna stick to it (and I have been) but I thought, to hell with it. I'm gonna join the gym today. And I did. Woo hoo! I got a great offer. No joining fee so I decided to spend that money on a personal trainer. I thought that might keep me motivated and it's good to learn few things along the way, right? And they were so great at the gym. They gave me free personal trainer for 6 weeks as well. I went shopping after that and got some new gym cloths and a gym bag. I'm soooo excited about it all. :D

Thank you, Shay. :D
I'm not only looking forward to loosing weight but I'm also looking forward to getting fit. I think that is my main goal, really. 4 years ago I did City to surf fun run and I really felt on top of the world when I finished 12km in 1 hour and 35 min. I wanna feel that good again so from 8.15AM tomorrow (my first PT session) I'm gonna start training for next years one (August).

Well done, that's a great start.

You might even come to realyl enjoy it - the feeling of accomplishment you get from a hard session at the gym can get addictive - at least it is for me!!

Well done!!

I know what you mean, ali76. Even though today I didn't feel like going I went anyway and once I was there I was asking myself - why is it that I didn't feel like going? I love the feeling when I reach the goal on every machine I use and once I'm done with the workout I feel like million dollars. Well, after I have a shower and get all the smelly sweat off, anyway. LOL.
I can honestly see myself becoming a gym junky. :)
And it's not only workout at the gym that make me feel good. Now that I have been more active I am constantly looking for other ways to stay on the go too. When I got home from the gym today my neighbour was just leaving for a walk with her dog so I decided to join her. And on Sunday I am meeting up with another friend for a bike ride. Instead of dreading exercise I am enjoying it and I am mixing my exercise with social outings so that's even more fun.

I also like to go to gym rather than just exercising at home. I enrolled at a gym also about two weeks ago and guess what, I paid no membership fee too and a trainer for free as well. We are so lucky girl :D
