    I'm going to the gym today doing some more

    weights on my arms my legs shoulders you name it. Most of it will be on machines rather than free weights but that doesn't matter if you want to start building muscle anyway cuz you will anyway right

    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.

    Love it! The satisfaction you get

    when training is fantastic. The "pump" shows you where your next goal is.. To look like that when walking into the gym not just when walking out. The feeling of fitness, strength and self drive it produces in you makes the pain and hard work all worth it. Working hard in the gym...

    Being a 52 year old single mom can be a bit

    lonely but I'm so lucky to have a gorgeous 20 year old daughter that will still go workout and go to yoga with her mama.

    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...

    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...

    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!

    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˜’

    So much that I train twice a day.

    The results are addicting and I love the feeling of building muscles. Fitness has given Mr many ups and downs in my life but it's something I could not live without.

    Two and a half years ago a gym opened up in my

    hometown. I looked at myself in the mirror and I was genuinely concerned about my health. I joined the gym and I pushed myself to keep going, and keep healthy. I can't believe how much exercise I am now able to achieve and how far I can push myself.
