Group fitness classes are a great way to make friends

I was offered a significant promotion at work.

However, the new job required me to relocate to a new area.

I didn’t know anyone in the new location, but the raise in pay was too beneficial to pass up. I decided to make an effort to meet some people. I started thinking about what type of people I wanted to make friends with. I don’t typically volunteer or get active in politics or current affairs, so that was out. I am very dedicated to physical fitness. I enjoy going on lengthy bike rides through the city, swimming at the public pool and going for ten-mile runs. I make an effort to workout every single day. I chose to enroll in a membership at a gym that offers all sorts of group classes. I figured that if I signed up for the right class, I would meet my type of people. So far, the classes are really great. I joined several group fitness classes at a core progression. I take classes four days per week. I take a women’s kickboxing class on Saturday and Sunday evenings. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I have yoga after work. I have met some really wonderful people that I enjoy chatting with. For the kickboxing class, most of the training is partner oriented. I hold pads for another woman or work them on stretching exercises. My regular partner and I work together really well. We pair up every class and I am steadily working up to mentioning grabbing a coffee or lunch together. After I make a few friends, I might try a class that includes both guys and girls. I wouldn’t mind meeting a cute guy. I’ve thought about signing up for weightlifting or HIT training.

Taking fitness class seriously after noticing progress

I will no longer go out to eat after class every week.

My friends and I decided to sign up for a group fitness class that ran for eight weeks. In the beginning, the class was really tough. The personal trainer pushed us beyond our comfort zone. She was very demanding and always wanted another rep, heavier free weights and more effort. She never allowed us to do anything halfway. At the end of every class, I would feel tight, sore and exhausted. My friends and I were all convinced she was going to kill us. After every class, we would reward ourselves by going to a restaurant to eat dinner. We’d order some apps and drink a few margaritas. We’d complain about the difficulty of the class. Just recently I have noticed progress. I have seen weight loss and an increase in muscle tone. I now sport some definition in my arms and legs. My tummy looks less round and more toned. My friends are still anxious to eat a heavy meal after class. I am no longer willing to go along. I don’t want to consume alcohol, overeat an unhealthy meal and wreck the progress of my workouts. Now that I understand the benefits of rigorous fitness, I am more motivated. The personal trainer is wonderfully knowledgeable and encourages me. I no longer need her to push me to lift more weight and add extra reps. I am working to higher standards and expectations on our own. After the eight weeks are over, I plan to sign up for another class. I plan to lose even more weight. I will no longer go out to eat after class every week. I imagine my friends won’t be supportive of my new lifestyle. They don’t follow the guidance of the trainer when she calls them out. They are only focused on going out for drinks after class. I will probably take the next set of classes on my own.

Finding a new and better gym

I stopped attending the local gym nearby because of the locker rooms.

The locker room was totally disgusting.

The toilets always leaked water across the floor. The doors of the gym lockers failed to close properly and the handles tended to be sticky. The shower provided little water pressure and I noticed mold growth in the corners. I had to remember to bring along a towel from home because there was never a supply of clean ones available. When I felt it was necessary to wear flip flops everywhere and bring my own toilet paper to the gym, I realized I had to quit my membership. I have chosen to drive an extra thirty-five minutes to access a better gym. The time wasted on driving is annoying. I sacrifice over an hour just due to travel time. This new fitness center offers way better accommodations. The locker rooms are cleaned and disinfected twice per day. There is always a bountiful supply of freshly laundered towels available. The toilets and shower area is perfectly clean and smells like cleaning products whenever I use the facility. I am not worried about coming down with toe fungus, athletes feet or wet feet due to leaking water. The gym area includes a lot of state-of-the-art equipment. There is every imaginable type of fitness machine I could want to use. The gym offers both personal training and a variety of group fitness classes. I have the choice of yoga, pilates, spin class, HIIT or cross fit if I want to sign up. Whenever I get aggravated over the longer drive, I start counting up the benefits of this location. I enjoy a much better workout. I like knowing the facility is always clean, maintained and kept up-to-date with gear. All of these things makes it worth the extra drive. At the former gym, I wasn’t getting my money’s worth out of the membership.

Sister lacks the dedication to become a personal trainer

For quite a few years, my younger sister was convinced she was going to become a professional athlete.

Unfortunately, she lacked the right body type, sufficient training and the dedicated work ethic to achieve this dream.

Instead, my sister chose to attend a school for exercise science. She then made the plan to become a fitness expert for one of the larger chain fitness facilities or even a professional sports team. She got very discouraged when that idea didn’t work out for her either. Now my sister is working at a local gym and serving as a personal trainer there. The problem is that my sister is sure she can step through the door of a high end facility, such as a core progression, and immediately get a great job. In the personal training work, the instructors need to prove themselves with client results and years of dedication. My sister needs to start at a lower end gym and earn some experience. She should build up a resume and a loyal client base. That’s how she could prove her capabilities. She has to show that she has skills and a solid background before a core progression will consider hiring her at a decent salary. It will require quite a few steps before she receives a sizable paycheck. Once she earns a job, my sister could eventually transition into private training and offer her own personal training sessions. She could then work directly out of her house! Right now, my sister hasn’t shown the dedication to do all of the preliminary work. She is now procrastinating over earning her AED and CPR certification. I read online that fitness trainers are required to have these qualifications before they have even a chance of getting hired. I worry over what my sister is going to end up doing for a living? She needs to put in some serious effort to achieve even part of her goals.

The gym is flooded with members in January

Early January, every year, a crowd of people sign up at our local gym.

It is rather annoying.

For about eight to ten months out of the year, I have easy access to all of the training equipment, whenever I want. My group fitness classes usually have ten to twelve people participating. I can sign up for personal training sessions at a convenient time for my schedule. However, right after January 1st, there are so many new faces in the fitness center it is nearly impossible to navigate around. I am forced to wait to use a treadmill or gain access to the free weights. The group fitness classes are overflowing with people. I have trouble scheduling an appointment with a certified fitness trainer for an hour because they are entirely booked up. It wouldn’t bother me all that much if these people joining the gym in January would stick with it. I would become accustomed to a bigger group fitness class and needing to set up personal training weeks in advance. I would learn what times the fitness equipment is less in demand. Instead, by the end of February, very few of the new people are showing up at the gym anymore. It is one for about two months that the gym is overwhelmed with members. These people lose motivation and stop showing up in a predictable pattern. I always find their lack of commitment kind of disappointing. These people invested in a full year membership but can’t even manage to stick with it for more than 2 months? That means the new people in my group fitness class only manage eight times before they quit. I don’t understand this mindset. They went to the effort of a gym membership, set aside time to workout and were determined to improve their health. They obviously had a goal in mind. I sympathize that it’s a challenge when you’re out of shape. If they’d put in more effort, they could realize some results.

The pizza delivery guy was my HVAC repair guy

Ever since my wife and I separated six months ago, I have had the girls every weekend.
