Tomorrow I am joining a local fitness center. I choose a small place with 24 hour access. I then talk my mother and daughter into joining, with me. No contract is involved with the membership so if they decide they don`t want to do it, it won`t cost them anything. They have crazy amounts of cardio classes that I don`t plan on attending until I am able to move better. I am so excited and scared at the same time. There are no men, which makes me feel a little more comfortable. There is a vacustep machine I plan on using for the first month. I have to go 5 days in a row then off 2. I am guaranteed to loose inches or money back ( $250 ). I need to have a boost with the weight loss and perhaps between my workouts at home and the vacstep I`ll be strong in no time. I am looking forward to having something I am committed to doing, aka having a reason to get out of bed.
I went to join the fitness center. I was and am so disappointed. The dance ( Zumba ) class was going on during my tour, very loud and nauseating for me. This room is fairly big, full capacity about 25 with concrete floor. This room also serves as elliptical and weigh lifting area. The club has a lot of hype, very little room. It has a palates / rebounder / yoga room carpeted but not very large. Still hearing the Zumba music. There is another very small room that has one small TV and about 20 stationary bikes . The building that houses the 12 x 12 x 4 ' swimming pool is also the, nursery, one shower and one bathroom, is detached but I could still here the Zumba music. The only thing that is accessible 24 hours is the bikes, elliptical and weights. I really had a different vision of what I was getting into. 1550 days ago
