Surely I'm Not the Only One Who Does This

Surely I'm not the only one who does this. Just over twelve months ago l started to feel a bit down about myself, when l was younger l was quite active l use to enjoy doing loads of different activities such as playing soccer, swimming, running and some weight training at my local gym. Now that middle age is caught up with me I noticed about a year ago l put on quite a bit of weight.

I decided to join a gym. The cost of the gym membership was quite expensive than came the monthly payments. When l first joined the gym l was very ego to get myself back in shape but after about 5 weeks into my new gym membership l started to get bored with the whole work out thing. After the first five weeks l must have only been to that gym a handful of times. I can't believe the amount of money l wasted for not taking full advantage of the gym facilities. Surely I'm not the only one who does this?

Over the years l have invested my money in some of the well-known gyms around London, many having great facilities such as steam rooms, saunas, Jacuzzi and a large swimming pool. These are great things to have in your gym but the truth is how often you actually use them. For me it wasn't that often maybe the swimming pool now and then but that would have been it

You see gym membership isn't cheap especially if you live in a large city like London, not only do you pay a large sum for your memberships but you have also have to carry on paying every month to be able to use their gym.

The other problem l have is time, l can only get to the gym at certain hours normally 6 to 8pm and as you may already know if you are a member of a gym in a big city that it gets very busy at these times. Waiting around for ten minutes to get on some sort of aerobic machine or to get on the weights is not how l likes to spend my time at a gym.

Maybe it's all down to motivation. Getting a personal trainer to point me in the right direction in helping me achieve my weight loss goals maybe a good thing to try but again we all know that having a personal instructor isn't a cheap option.
