I Love Going to the Gym

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,022 People

    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.

    The best feeling in the world is being sore

    after a good workout. It means you accomplished something.

    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...

    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!

    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.

    When the sweat falls from the brow

    after a tough workout I don't think there's anybody who wouldn't feel proud, sharp and confident. Gymming is a great way to get out of a rut and feel better about yourselves. Try it!

    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 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...

    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˜’
