Joining the gym

Well, I am going to take the plunge, and join a gym.

I looked into one that’s near where I live. It looks good. Its 35 euro a month for the gym only membership.

I rang them, and spoke to a very nice girl who told me she’d have to get the manager to call me back tomorrow morning, as she wasn’t sure if someone who isn’t a member can come with me, to help me in the gym. I’m sure they can though, just that she didn’t know the protocol around it.

I’m hoping this is going to work out as I need to be doing more exercise. I am not fit, and I do need to exercise more. Mom said she’d also go with me to help me sometimes if I did join, and my PA Amanda will also go with me too.

I’ll know more tomorrow. Just hoping for the best hoping they are disability inclusive.

I do feel like I need to work harder at exercising. I’m getting fitter, and can now walk more, but I am still quite out of shape.

So hopefully doing this will help, and I’ll continue to lose weight too and exercising in combo with healthy eating will help greatly in the weight loss department.

  1. Good on you and yes, there should be no reason why they can’t, because you are only being supported to go the machine, they are not going on it. You will be allowed, because it is reasonable adjustment. Like you say, she would not know protocol, but should have. It makes you wonder if she had any disability training.
