Finding the Right Gym
At some point in our overweight and unfit lives we've all had the new year's resolution to "join the gym" and come the first week in January we run off to our local gym, sign up for the obligatory year's membership, go 2 or 3 times and then never go back.
Maybe every couple of months we get a burst of energy/guilt and go back once or twice but never really get into the whole gym thing and curse every time we see the "only 1.48 a day", as the gym manager put it, coming out of our bank account. It"s not the 1.48 that bothers me it"s the 540 per year that's making me sick.
Anyway, it"s no wonder we develop this deep rooted hatred for the gym, to the point where I had to break up with a guy once because he was called Jim.
Let's take a step backwards for a minute and try and repair this "12 months with the first month free", rift.
Let's think about why we didn't actually keep up our planned three times a week down the gym. (Here's a list)
The list is endless, it's at least as long as your arm. Now what's gonna make this relationship work? (Here's another list)
There are many ways of keeping fit including walking, swimming, running, all sorts of ways but the gym can be a really great place to get yourself back in shape.
Give it another go...
give Jim a call.
