    It's become a real obsession.

    Love the feeling when I manage to lift those heavy weights. It's a pure de stress and boosts my mind. Can't wait to see my results in a year from now :)

    For me working out is therapy.

    It is a time I reflect, resolve issues and come up with new ideas. After a workout I am usually feeling physically, emotionally and mentally strong. The last two weeks my workouts, my running in particular, have been lacking. I have been full of excuses and just not giving...

    I rarely do Zumba though.

    I feel like a grandma everytime I do it. But I do the Les Mills BodyCombat for my cardio and this is by far my favorite part evert. I like it since strong legs are very important to me and my being. I have to walk around and stand for some couple of hours at work. In...

    The best feeling in the world is being sore

    after a good workout. It means you accomplished something.

    If you're at the gym looking like this,

    I hate you. Go home. You're done. Yes, I'm jealous that your genetics allowed you to be naturally thin. And maybe you did have to work for your muscle tone, but you're making me feel bad over here trying to run off my genetics. πŸ˜’

    There's seriously nothing

    but "pro's" when you start going to the gym and working out. Been going there only a week so far and already I'm feeling a difference in my knees. I've also noticed a change in my self image, I feel more confident and I'm happy to see myself working towards a new muscular body.

    I joined the gym in October

    and have never been happier about a decision! Since joining I've felt like I've found my personal safe haven, where I can think about everything, or nothing. Something about the gym that I find feels so warm and welcoming!

    I'm there at least 5-6 days a week.

    I have several routines to mix things up and stay fit. I love the sweat, soreness, pushing each rep till I can't go any more. It's a great outlet in all that goes on in my life. Plus hey, I'm a beast.. I look great. But maybe I'd trade it for a piece of time.....

    I walk into the gym, headphones in,

    music focusing me, I am confident, sweat pouring out, I love this feeling, if I could bottle it up and use it later I would.
