Gym chronicles #3

we are just back from the gym. we went for about an hour.
It was good but very tiring! But then again, I suppose the gym is meant to be tiring. As the instructor who gave me the tour said, if your not out of breath and puffing and panting, then your not working hard enough.
Today was just a tour, to see if I liked it there, and if I wanted to join. We decided a few things. We decided that for me the best option to start off would be a few sessions of personal training.
Yes its strenuous, yes its tough, but it will also help me to tone up and get in shape much quicker than if I was trying to do exercise on my own, and also, there is an added bonus of having someone helping me so I’d have less restrictions on what I could do.
So once I save up enough money I will book in for six personal training sessions. It might take me a week or two to save up, as its 30 euro a session.
Today though I went on the bike for 15 minutes, and I did weights. Man those weights were hard! I went on five different weight machines, the chest weights were the worst, I was literally lifting 70 pound! I was exhausted!
But I had fun. And I felt great after the workout. And I’m happy I went today.
