AMT Conquered!

Monday, February 18, 2013

One of my goals for February was to try a new piece of equipment at the gym. When I first joined, I was given a tour and I remember looking at the AMT and thinking "yep, I'm not ever going on THAT!" This is a big machine, with all kinds of movement. The 30 seconds I spent on it during orientation were enough to make my knees hurt. I tried it shortly after I joined and within a minute, I felt winded. I wrote it off as a machine I would never use. This thing is a BEAST!

The last few nights, I've been eyeing this machine, thinking "I wonder if I can do that now." Last night was the night I finally decided to try it again.

30 minutes. Done. My body aches in all new ways today, but I did something I previously didn't think I could. Of that, I am proud.

    emoticon on achieving a new goal! I wondered what the AMT was, but from the picture it looks like the piece of equipment that I use at the gym and love it. So happy that you have achieved the ability to use it and seem to really enjoy it now!

    Thanks for posting! There are quite a few machines that intimidate me, too. I might try one or two of them soon. Keep up the good work!
