1st Workout at New Gym

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

Well i had my first workout at the new gym yesterday. I walked there because its a 15min walk from my house. The walk was nice and gave me time to think. The gym wasn't to crowded. But i was still a little uncomfortable because its some place new and I'm unfamiliar with the equipment. I tried a machine i never heard of before called the Arc Trainer. Wow that thing gives you a workout. But i loved it. Then i did just a few weight machines because i felt like an idiot walking around staring at all the machine. I decided to just go for my comfort zone and go do some dumbbell exercises.

I didnt feel like i got the best workout though. I used to do 30mins of bootcamp and felt like i was dying and had worked every muscle in my body. But at the gym my workout felt so-so. I guess i just have to find my groove.

    When it comes to workouts, it's good to leave our comfort zone once in a while. Our bodies get used to the same routine so it's important to change things up a little. First time at a new gym will always be daunting but you'll find your groove. You'll eventually find what you like and what you don't. The fact that it's a 15 min walk away from home is awesome. It means you're more likely to keep up with it emoticon . I know that for me if a gym isn't convenient for me to get to, I won't go.

    You'll get into a routine again. It's hard, but you'll do it. Good for you for trying!!
