  1. Joining a gym did wonders for my self esteem and it’s changed my whole mindset approaching life.

    Your comment about it being boring and full of posers made me laugh – I wasn’t the sporty type at school and thought the gym would be the types who made PE unbearable, but I learnt soon that most people were cool and didn’t care what you were doing.

    There are a fair few posers there – though I just leave them to admiring themselves in the mirror!

  2. I have no desire to go to a gym. For me, it’s a time thing. In the time it would take to get there and back, I can be done my workout. I do, however, work out at home every day. I have resistance bands and dumbbells for strength training.

    Maybe when I retire and have more time on my hands, I will rethink the gym thing. Then again, maybe not…

  3. For me it’s easier, cheaper and it takes much less times to do strength training at home with elastic band. I feel better and I find it easier to carry my groceries!

  4. I have a 12 week membership for my local council gym which is free as part of a weight management programme. When I finish, I’m hoping to keep going as it’s been so beneficial for my physical and mental health. My gym also has exercise classes both instructor lead and virtual. There are a range of people who go from those hoping to tone up a little, those who like to see themselves in the mirror and some people who have physical disabilities. It has a lovely atmosphere and I feel like I belong there. I enjoy using the strength machines and after 10 weeks I can see a real difference.
