    But I Never Go...

    I joined a great gym. I thought that if it had all the right features, I'd love going there. So this gym is awesome. It's close to my house, has tons of ritzy features...but I still don't go. Darn it! How do I trick/bribe/cajole myself into exercising?

    Joined LA Fitness last week,

    glad to be working out again. If anyone has any tips regarding a workout regimen I would appreciate them, as it is I'm just winging it haha but as it's my first week I'm taking it slow so I don't hurt myself just starting out
