It's just as much mental as it is physical when it comes time to break a sweat, resist a treat or make a financial investment. It has been studied and proven that when we work out there is a chemical produced that helps out with our mental state. You are free to "wiki" those stats if you like. I've learned that while I hate the process (most of the time), I love the product. After working out for a certain amount of time our bodies begin to feel ill if we don't. That is something I have experienced in the last year after working with a trainer for close to six months. Something that I decided looooong ago was that I can spend $5-$7 on a fast food meal or I can spend it on a day pass to a gym. Now, let's be real......sometimes I spend it on the fast food. I'm not super human! You don't have to be a member at most gyms to work out in them. I was very spoiled at my last gym. It was amazing and had so many benefits. I may, due to this spoiling have become a gym snob. I know, I know, I hate it too. In an effort to find a gym in my new city I've began gym hopping. For me, working out in a gym seems to be one of the best ways to keep me working on my health. I get bored easy and need an environment I can change up frequently. Before you commit financially to a gym I would suggest doing two things.
- Make a list of the things you are looking for in a work out, facility, etc. Example: Trainer Availability, Hours, Distance, Financial Commitment, etc.
- Gym Hop. If your area offers several facilities it is worth visiting them all. It is also a good idea to ask around to see what locals and members have to say. Also check out each gym's web site. Some gym's have a fancy web site and a not so fancy facility. That's why it is so important to check out both.
I hope this gives you some encouragement and thoughtful tips
when it comes to gettin' your "I'm sexy and I know it", on!
WORK IT OUT!!!
