Okay, I am going to be totally honest. I never thought in a million years that I would be posting about going to the gym :-). My friend (and GT boss), Kelly approached me and asked how I felt about going to a gym. We were getting ready to start our Green Tangerines Biggest Loser Challenge and we had the opportunity to try out Fitness MD. I had had gym memberships before. It has been about 10 years since my last visit/membership. Whenever I went to the gym, I didn't feel like I knew what I was doing when it came to the weights. So I would find myself on the bike and treadmill each day. I would get bored. I would miss a day. Then I would miss two days. Two days would become a week and that week led to a year. I would still pay for my membership and not ever use it. Well, that year led to the 10 year span without going to the gym. Those 10 years without the gym and 4 babies later led to an unhealthy me.
On January 8th I met Kelly down at Fitness MD in Rocklin. We were assessed by a trainer. By assessed, I mean our weight and measurements were taken. Our fat was pinched(my least favorite part-LOL). We had to walk/run a mile and a half. We did push ups, sit ups and were assessed to see how much weight we could lift. On January 10th, we attended our first Fit Club Workout. These workouts are done in a group setting with a Trainer(s) who leads the way. I am not gonna lie, I thought I was going to die during that first workout. I was using muscles that had not been used in years. I am happy to report that I didn't die after that first workout. In fact, I have gone to Fitness MD every day M-F(except the one sick day I missed because of a nasty chest cold). I look forward to the workouts. Each and every day is different. The workouts are never the same and I love that. For instance, this morning at 6:30 am, we worked on our upper body. Tomorrow we will work on our lower body. I actually look forward to my daily workouts. Our trainer Jaime,has been fabulous. He helps you when you need it. He motivates you and claps you on (to get you going) AND there are lots of whoop whoops :-). The entire staff has been friendly and helpful. After my first week of working out at Fitness MD, I lost 6 lbs.. Six lbs. people!!!!! The following week, I was down 3 lbs.. Can you believe that? I have continued to lose weight during the last month but the best part is the fact that I can feel my body changing. Muscles are beginning to surface and my clothes are getting baggy. As of tomorrow at 6:30 am, I will have completed my 4th week of workouts. I can honestly say that I am loving it! I haven't uttered the words "I am bored" once. I enjoy going to Fitness MD and especially love how I feel after a great workout!
Are you still with me :-)? I didn't mean for this to turn into a novel. I just really love the place...can you tell?
If you visit their website at Fitness MD, you can print a 7 day pass to try them out. Let them know that I sent you :-) and let me know if you want to meet down there. Seriously, you will love it!
Don't forget to get up and move today :-).
