The gym is very much like a mini vacation for me
I’ve been a member at the same gym for nearly twenty years. I was one of the first people to sign up for a membership. Over the years the fees have gradually increased. I don’t mind because the amenities have also improved. Since the gym initially opened, there have been huge improvements in fitness machines and technology. I am very thankful that the gym keeps up with this progress. I always have access to the latest innovations. I could never afford to purchase the most modern, top-of-the-line treadmill for my personal use. Through my membership, I have access to over twenty treadmills. There are also all different types of stationary bikes, ellipticals, rowing machines and stairmasters available. An entire section of the gym is devoted to strength training machines that target all the different muscle groups. There is a specific machine for biceps and another for triceps. I can utilize incline benches to get more out of abdominal crunches. I like to take advantage of different training opportunities, such as climbing a rock wall, hitting a punching bag or using the battle ropes. Along with all of the equipment, the gym offers all different styles of group classes offered every day of the week at various times. I’ve taken yoga, pilates, HIIT, aerobics and boot camp and enjoyed each one. I like having access to tanning beds, saunas, steam rooms and a hot tub. I can make an appointment to get a massage. The gym is very much like a mini vacation for me. I have the opportunity to focus on my health and fitness, clear my head and get out from under the stress of everyday obligations. I always leave the gym feeling refreshed.
