I have been to gyms before. Maybe twice. I never go again because no one has ever told me what I should be doing.
My new gym is something else. I have been thinking about joining for about a year- I wish I had done it sooner now.
Who would have thought that I would be talking like this after three days?! Let me tell you about it.
It does not have a fancy pool or location. It does not have high tech equipment that cuts your hair as you jog. It is a gym.
The best thing for me are the people. A man called jon who works there has adopted me and my friends and has been giving us practically personal training sessions every time.
He doesn’t make us feel silly but does push us. We know that if he didn’t keep appearing and telling us what to do, we would be walking on the running machine!
I told him I wanted to be healthy, I wanted to carry less weight and I wouldn’t mind a little less bingo on the wings.
I’ve said it before, I’m never going to be small. But I can be healthier, and that’s what I want.
If you are feeling like getting fit is something we could support each other with – please get in touch!
If you are feeling scared of the gym- just go for it. Ask for help and tell them what you want to achieve.
I am so proud that I took that first step!
