1. You’ll make new friends! Gym buddies are the best buddies (apart from these guys)
2. You’ll learn to appreciate what your body can do, rather than what it looks like naked (although chances are the latter will improve too).
This morning on the radio I heard a woman talking about a charity event she was planning in her town. Listing the various activities that would take place, she said: “There’ll be a bouncy castle, some food stalls. Oh, and there’ll be plenty of gains.”
Anyone who gets off their butt and goes to the gym is a hero. Period.
It’s possible I’m behind the crowd here (despite spending an unhealthy amount of time on the internet, trends do pass me by occasionally) but I wanted to take some time today to talk about two wonderful websites that had me rapt at the keyboard this week.
I broke up with my gym.
As an overweight and uncoordinated child, I loathed PE (that’s what we call gym class in Ireland).
