Finally joined a gym, now what?
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
you are barely going to the gym because all it seems to do is hurt you
you stopped going all together
What do I do?
It is awesome that you have finally joined the gym but it’s just the first step
What you need to do is set a goal
Ask yourself, Do I want to lose weight or gain Muscles?
Journal entry how much fat you want to lose or muscles you want to gain
Set a scheduled
