Finally, you have dedicated to join a gym, to be part of the growing healthy community…But what do you do next? I mean the only thing your body instinctively know is running, that’s right I’ll just get on the treadmill.

Ahhh, nothing like running in places for 30 minutes

A couple of days later, I am bored

Maybe the machine will do me better

so I bounced around from machine to another looking to build those crazy arms that I always see on TV.

One to Two days later….

you are sore and paining all over

maybe doing all those exercises aren’t such a good idea after all?

So now you back to the treadmill again..

Nothing like the one and true thing that you are familiar of

Weeks later…

you are barely going to the gym because all it seems to do is hurt you

Then

you stopped going all together
