I am happy to announce that I joined a local gym near my house. I have mentioned before that I would like to get back in shape and for only ten bucks a month with great hours, I couldn’t turn it down. Taylor is already skeptical.
I have to admit, this same scenario has happened before. I joined a woman’s gym, but was too busy to ever make it over there. I was only able to visit the gym a few times before I deemed the membership fruitless. I also was paying more than ten bucks a month and was under contract. My new gym simply lets me pay each month without a contract. It makes it really easy for me in case I would have to cancel. It also is across from my work, so I think it may help to be so close.
Before agreeing to join, we toured the facilities. They had tanning, massage chairs, and advertised that they are a gym for everyday people. This means that they do not have a lot of free weights and supposedly people who are incredibly in shape like body builders. This was simply an explanation I was given from a person at the gym. Like all gyms, they boasted that I wouldn’t be judged in the gym. I hate to tell you, but you can’t stop other people from judging you. They can decide not to comment, but that’s about all.
Either way I am excited to go. My schedule is pretty hectic right now, but I believe working out will make me feel and look better. I also believe that it can help with stress of working two jobs at once. Stay tuned in the next few weeks to see how it’s going!
