Almost 20 years ago I joined a gym...I was scared, unmotivated, shy, you name it. But I joined because I was recovering from a severe back injury and vowed never to have that happen again.
I started by taking beginner aerobics classes. Within 2 weeks I was hooked! It was like going out to play with my friends. Within 6 months I made a bunch of new friends and was the happiest I had ever been.
Within 1 year I got my personal training certification and group exercise certification. I started to teach...admittedly not easy but before long I was a pro and was pulling great numbers in my classes.
So I got paid to exercise! I was wonderful and sooooo much fun.
Joining a gym is hard but if you find the right place it can be a lot of fun and you will find yourself looking forward to it as part of your social life
Most folks don't go on to teach or train but a gym membersip can be a wonderful thing!
