I have tried joining a wellness center, a gym, and curves. I tried softball, racquetball,, and tennis. The Having recently been diagnosed with diabetes I am more cognizant of the need to exercise. I am using a Certified Personal Trainer. On the intake form I took a major leap of faith giving her Carte Blanche for setting up the strength training and directing Cardio. If I don't do something well I don't want to do it all, I made a commitment to the trainer that I would try anything recommended
before I would veto an activity. I''m thinking maybe by the fifth attempt I will have a greater appreciation for the exercise or activity. Let's face it...my writing the exercise plan got me where I am today!!!

Quite by accident, one stressed day I bit into dark chocolate and had my best workout ever up to that point. On many different occasions I confirmed that Dark chocolate gives an amazing boost for the best cardio workout ever! 25g of 60-70% cocoa dark chocolate and I can work at 70% MHR for an hour!
A trainer confirmed that it is used by a few athletes.
going to the gym working out is hard. keeping motivated to do it regularly is even harder. I found an app for my phone that helps keep me motivated with set workouts that are prebuilt and I can even build my own or modify the ones there. I love it and I can schedule the workouts so I know what I am doing when I get to the gym. totally keeps me motivated and on track! FitnessBuilder is amazing and I am glad I found it.
check it out for your phone or tablet. it is a great way to organize your workouts so you dont end up at the gym wondering what you are doing and you dont have to pay for a trainer. it is your trainer with videos even!
