Yesterday I made a decision. Mostly because I can't make it to my favorite trainer David class Wednesday nights anymore. (PS if you live in South Florida and EVER get to check out one of his class, I promise it would be worth it! Also check out his website! Click Here). So after work yesterday I scheduled a tour of our local LA Fitness.
Chris has been a member of LA Fitness for a while. Some of you know that Chris is not a runner. He plays basketball, but that is because he is pushing 6'7. One of my favorite things to do it watch him play ball. It literally is like ballet for men. Every night Chris goes to the gym for a couple hour playing pick up games and I either run or cook dinner.
I've been avoiding joining a gym. Not because of the money or cost, just because I get super nervous around big gyms. Mostly because I don't want to look like an idiot if I am using the machines wrong. I am a former crossfit lover So yesterday I took the plunge and took a tour of LA Fitness.
I met with the manager Jake and he took me around the gym and showed me the machines and said that he would schedule me an appointment with a trainer, at no cost to show me how to do different exercises. I am some what limited at what I do because of my wrist. Some of you may know I had surgery in May on my wrist, and I have limited strength and flexibility but it is getting better everyday!
Jake showed me some of the different classes they have and the pool! I love that they have the pool, mostly because I was a swimmer in high school and college, And lifeguarded and taught swim lessons to kids for 6 years. He was an amazing sales man! I already knew I was going to join, but if I wasn't he would have probably swayed me.
Needless to say I am now a member at LA Fitness. I am excited to get started and take my training to a whole new level. I have a meeting with a personal trainer, Joey tonight. Be sure to look our for that recap soon. Should be a good one!
Some of you may have seen this picture on my facebook page last night, but I thought it was hilarious with my caption.
I joined a gym.. and made a cake... and then ate the left over batter.
Until next time everyone!
