The whole place is super nice.
The color scheme is purple and yellow. It's both comforting, yet high energy, cheerful. The ladies changing room seems like right out of a catalog, it's so pretty. There are cushioned changing seats, a huge mirror with lighted make up mirrors, hair dryers at each station. The lockers are nice and quiet (no loud banging or clanging/rusty hinges) and they are spacious. Fresh flowers adorn the room. It's more beautiful than my entire apartment.
Did I mention it is a judgement free zone? There are so many positive sayings around the whole gym! Even the doors say it! "You belong here!"
It really does feel judgement free. :D
I met with my personal trainer and she gave me a customized training plan. Compared to what I am doing now (ie nothing) it seems like I am training for a marathon! :S
I have 2 heavy cardio days where I have to do cardio for at least 30 minutes with half of that time being over 85% of my maximum heart rate (mhr) or 156 beats/minute and the other half in between 126-156 beats/minute. One day is heavy strength day, where I have to do 3 upper body machines and 3 lower body machines for 3 sets (of 10) each! To finish off that day, 15 minutes of cardio. In addition to that, I have to walk 10,000 steps a day! I barely do a thousand a day, so I think that one will be the hardest to get in.
She also requires I drink a gallon of water every day. That makes me feel a little overwhelmed! that is SO much water. But I will do it. Because I was told.
To top off my day, they gave me a club shirt, just for joining. Hurray!
|Like a boss!|
I'm going tonight after I get done with work. I also convinced one of my friends to join with me, so now I have someone to go with :)
