First Time to Gym!

I’ve only been to a gym once, and that was when I accompanied my friend when she inquired about a certain gym’s services and rates, which are really expensive by the way. I felt like you were just paying for the brand name, since it was a widely known gym. When the trainor toured us inside, I was so clueless as to what those different tools would do and how they work. Most of the gyms have expensive monthly rates, which I don’t think I can afford. I’ve been wanting to try somehow because I feel like it will encougage me to really work to minimize my tummy fats. 😐 Yes, I do have them which is really annoying since I’m such a petite and short person!

I was chatting with my workmates one day and randomly, my friend, Kim, who was the same person I mentioned earlier, informed me that there’s a promo going on in one of the gyms. And the yearly price is just 5,000 Php (which is about 116 USD). Pretty awesome, right? They had sauna as well so I decided to try it out.

This is our first day at the gym. I was ignorant of the tools, and I still am. D: LOL. This is me just posing for the camera as you can tell by the way my hands are positioned. This is way too high for me. HAHA.

This is the first time I used this. I was a bit hesitant because I’ve seen videos where people trip off when they use this thing, but I said to myself that I’m not going to learn anything if I let my fear overcome me. I walked, jogged and ran with this. WEEE! ^_^

Kim told me that the distance was measured by miles, which is unbelievable. O_O I didn’t feel tired while on the treadmill. I only felt it after I used it. We rested for a little while then went ahead to experience their sauna, which is the only thing I’m very excited about and one of the main reasons why I joined this gym.

I find their sauna disappointing. There was too much steam. We kept on coughing and felt suffocated so we had to open the room for some time to let some of the steam out, which is such a pet peeve. It was really distracting us. We can’t even adjust the amount of steam, while in the boys’ sauna, they can. They even have this lemon smell which sounds so comforting. T_T I wish they would improve the girls’ sauna too.

Anyway, it was fun! And I’ll have this service for one year. YAY for me! 🙂

    That’s cheap nga. And mukhang high-tech ang equipment nila. I think it’s a good deal. I used to jog at parks kaso laging rainy. I need to go back to the gym, no excuses kahit rainy.

    5,000 a year? That’s a good deal talaga!

    I’ve been to the gym once palang din. My friend gave me a free pass. I tried the treadmill din and I was so scared. HAHA. But yeah, it was fun. =D

    That’s wonderful that you finally joined a gym after wanting to for so long. I’m lucky because my apartment building has a gym in it that I can go to for free. But I only went one time lol. I’m embarrassed to work out in front of people so I usually just do it at home where no one can see me haha.

    I know because of those expensive monthly fees, I work out at home and it’s mostly been a success.

    It’s okay. I have A LOT of tummy fat and a lot of it came from my childhood and me not taking care of myself right (happens when depression hits you rather badly).

    I hope you get the success you want/need in that gym ;P
