    The gym has been the place I go to

    for the past few months to clear my head. To meet new people and maybe just maybe to flirt a little. I mean after awhile faces become familiar and they are there for the same reason I am. Well, just last weekend my hubby decided to join. And now all he wants to do is go with me...

    I love gym classes. I find being micro-managed

    while I work out very motivating. It's funny because in my life and job I hate being micro managed. There is something about another person making sure you're working at full capacity. Also there is research to prove that people work harder at classes. Favourite classes are...

    The people that go to my gym are ridiculous.

    So there are handicapped parking spaces, yet I see these young men with no handicapped sign parking in those spaces to go the gym. Are you freakin serious? You're going to the gym to work out, but you're to damn lazy to walk a little farther? Then I see some seniors or people...

    Three to four times a week,

    an hour each day. I don't like the BIG crowds, but I go anyway. I always feel like a million buck after I finish my work out, go home, and shower. Good stuff, that is. :D

    I used to hate going to the gym

    but now I find it ok although i'm probably not pushing myself enough. I hate the treadmill because it's so boring! I want to keep fit and I try to go to the gym as much as I can.

    I have a really busy schedule

    but I do fit in gym time to get a regular workout. I like classes, but the only one I do get to regularly is called spinning, it's a static bike set exercise programme. It can be pretty gruelling. I have time to also swim. Two or three times a week at the moment. And at the end...

    Baby Weight

    I love going to the gym and I couldn't wait to get back after having my baby. Only three more pounds to go before geting back to my prebaby weight. Not much gets rid of the daily stresses of life better than a good workout.

    I decided right after my birthday

    that there's no reason I should be in worse shape in my 30s than I was in my 20s. I didn't really apply myself in my 20s, and I got soft. Not fat, but very soft. I've never been a fan of fitness, but I decided I need to make an effort, especially since my career kind of relies...

    I usually go to the gym around 8pm

    before work. It's my time to refocus and release the stresses of the day. I love it. I love sweating out negativity. The stress drips off my back and I smile at my success.

    I stopped going to the gym

    because it was too hard. the "encouragement" and "advice" I got from people only discouraged me, because I was sure I could never be able to "go hard" or whatever super amp'd up superman thing they'd say. in the last few months I learned that a habit of successful people is to...
