I quit my gym (which I love) to join a new gym with my (special needs) DD, Mimi.
The new gym is much smaller but a few miles closer to our home.
We made an 18 month commitment, which I hope will be enough to get her into the working out habit and lifestyle.
So far she is very much into it, but, boy, she knows less than nothing about exercise. She seems to be eager to lose a little weight, get toned, and be in better shape. I am trying to be a positive cheerleader and coach for her.
I will miss my old gym but the new one has everything I really need, and I KNOW how fast 18 months can fly by and then I'll see what I want to do.
It's my gift to DD, even though she'll never know it.
BTW- the owner/manager made us a VERY good deal, after doubling our free guest passes to 2 weeks while I made sure that Mimi was ready to make the commitment.
Don't ever be afraid to ask for what you want.
