I’ve been thinking about joining a gym for about two months now, but I tried to wait until I was further into my new lifestyle and further into the colder weather. Today was just one rainy, cloudy, cool day too many. I caved and joined the gym. I chose Average Joe’s which is the cheapest, most basic option closest to my home.
I hopped onto the treadmill first thing. It had been a while since I really jogged on one. For the first time, it felt really easy to run on a treadmill. I warmed up a bit, then ran almost a full mile before going into cool-down mode. I didn’t want to overdo it at the gym on the first day, and I still wanted to hit the weight machines. I kept it easy on the weight machines, too, only doing about 10 reps per machine and only up to 30 pounds. Nevertheless, my left arm felt a little sore before I left–hopefully I’ll be able to lift it tomorrow!
Do you belong to a gym? What do you like most about it?
