So, today was my health assessment at my new gym. SUPPOSED to be anyway. My trainer bailed! I just couldn't believe it! I did try to make the most of it...I went up to an elliptical and started peddling. ~Whew~ I am far more out of shape than I had thought. I was dying after just 2 minutes. I toughed it out longer though. I started sweating good at about 5 minutes. Around 7 I suuddenly realized I hadn't brought a towel with me emoticon I know I probably should have toughed out longer. I know it might just be an excuse....BUT I didn't want to leave the machine sweaty from my workout. I remember how nasty my old gym was cuz people would just sit down and do their business but never wipe off the machines emoticon I ended up getting off the machine and leaving. The nice girl at the counter did reschedule me for tomorrow after work. Let's hope he's there this time!

    So sorry your trainer didn't show up. Did the receptionist schedule you with someone else or are you giving the same person another chance?

As for the elliptical minutes, we all start somewhere. Check out the settings on the machine. Maybe the resistance was too high for you and needed to be adjusted so you would be able to work-out for a longer period of time.

Also, make sure the trainer or someone on staff gives you a good tour of the facilities. Many gyms have cleaning solution with paper towels on hand to clean machines before/after use. It may not be as environmentally friendly as we would like but it helps cut down on the bacteria left on the machines.

Wishing you better luck with the next scheduled session and much success in your journey!
