Do you know what if feels like to join a gym when you are 58, out of shape and everyone around you is toned? Well I do, I used to work out at some of the big name gyms, Lifestyle Family Fitness, Urban Active and Victory Fitness Center. I always felt like a loser, and not in a good way. Twenty and thirty somethings working out in their skimpy gear. Well, I joined a gym this past Thursday. Was is crowded? No. Did it have state of the art equipment? Not really. Did I have to sign a long term contract, spend big bucks? No. Did I have to put up with 20 or 30 somethings in their skimpy gear? Not at all. What I did was I went to my local senior center. It costs $5.00 a month, payable monthly. There are no young people there. The gym is small and there are bikes, one eliptical, one treadmill and some older weight machines. The most people I have worked out with was 2. This is perfect for me. If you are old enough to join a center and live close enough to one, I would recommend looking in to it. An added bonus, they have Zumba twice a week.
