Today I made my first visit to the Health and Fitness Headquarters as part of our monthly challenge and to take advantage of a pretty significant benefit the City is offering me this year. I decided to pay to have a personal trainer help set up a training regimen for me. Shannon asked me about my goals for the training and she tailor made a workout to meet those goals. With this introductory program I get two 1 hour sessions to familiarize me with the equipment and to show me how to do the workout. This additional service is $59. Well worth it because I don’t know jack about working out. I’ve been fortunate in my life to be fairly active and I haven’t struggled with weight until recently that is as middle age creeps in. Riding the stationary bike over the winter just isn’t producing any results. It’s was a bit intimidating at first but I think I will be alright. I am planning to ride motorcycles with my son Dwight to Austin, TX in late April and I decided I needed to build up my strength to get through this trip. I now have 11 more visits to meet the 12 minimum visits to qualify for the drawing, YIPPEE.
