Taking the Leap
Friday, October 21, 2011
Today I joined a gym. This will be my 3rd time being a gym member. The first time was Bally's when I graduated college. That was a lot of wasted money. The second time was Merritt Fitness, which was right around the corner from the club where I DJ'ed on weekends. I was much more serious about that time, as I joined right after I was first diagnosed as a diabetic. Looking back now I am sure that I looked quite the fool sitting in my car after a workout, sweating, panting, and smoking a cigarette. But at the time I figured I had earned that smoke by spending 30 minutes on the stationary bike. There really is no accounting for intelligence.
Today I joined Planet Fitness. I got the membership that allows me to bring a guest whenever I want, so I am hoping that my friend who does not have the extra scratch for a gym membership becomes my workout buddy. I guess we will see. But now I have the membership. My hope is that by calling myself out on here about it that I will follow up on it and actually make the 3rd time the charm.
Wish me luck.
