Well here’s a first. Today we go to the gym to get an orientation session and a bit of time with a trainer. We’ve never had gym memberships before. In fact I’ve always been a bit scornful of gyms as I figure if I want to exercise I don’t need a gym to do that. I have lots of free alternatives.
So what’s changed?
First off the weather. We like to do a daily walk but walking in the pouring rain can get old in a hurry. Especially when its raining and 2°C. So being able to use a treadmill or elliptical inside is nice. This is sweet baboo’s biggest factor.
Second is more subtle. If I spent the money to join I’m just cheap enough to make sure I use it. So…motivation to actually exercise.
Third, the doc says if I want my back to stop hurting I will need to build core strength, and some trainer advise will be appreciated.
It’s open 24/7 too so hopefully we can find a time when it is fairly empty and satisfy our personal COVID protocols. I’ll let you know how it’s working out. See what I did there? Ha! I kill me.
