So I joined a gym last night, well actually it’s a leisure centre, yes there is a difference.
Gyms: abundance of pretentious posers + abundance of mirrored walls = abundance of said pretentious posers more interested in checking themselves out in said mirrored walls than actually focusing on their workout.
Leisure Centres: abundance of non-pretentious non-posers + abundance of non-mirrored walls = a more comfortable, more enjoyable, less imposing place to workout.
So having finally learnt my lesson I only signed up for 3 months. Which may not seem like much of a commitment to some. But if you knew how many times I have signed up for 6 & 12 month contracts only to stop going after 1 month & how much money I have wasted in doing so, you would be positively horrified.
And I must say that i’m really looking forward to going. Something I never thought that I would say, because usually making the effort to go & workout has always felt like more of a chore than something to look forward to. But I guess that’s what comes with having to deal with the fact that I am now alone, I have no one else to focus on but myself.
