I Love Going to the Gym

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 486 People

    I'm not gonna lie. My enthusiasm

    for it waxes and wanes. I don't love it on the first day back after a month or more of not going. I love to go when I've gotten into the habit, I don't dread it, and it's not such a struggle. Exercising is so much more mental than physical. If you think about it, everything is...

    Never Used to Be For Me....

    I always hated exercise as a kid and always faked sick days on sports and swimming days at school. I spent most of my life above 90 kilos until I got a job in hospitality where I was putting in up to 14 hours a day and I dropped a heap of weight. All of a sudden...

    Mind, Body and Soul.

    It took me a long time to get to like going to the gym. I always thought it was full of jerks who love themselves. That's partly true. You do get the idiots and the juice-monkeys, but I go at off-peak times and I find there's less of them at that time. Now though, gym is like a...

    Endorphin Junkie

    Zumba! So I haven't been to Zumba in about a

    year. The classes are always during the time when there is no one to watch my kids, but I was finally able to go last night. I forgot how much fun it was. I also forgot how many lunges are involved, and my thighs are soooo sore today. Haha Zumba works!

    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. 😒

    I can bend them and they are fine, but when I straighten them, it hurts really bad on the inside of my elbows. What did I do?! And how do I fix it?!

    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.
