Since working out at the resort fitness center during vacation was so enjoyable, I resolved that upon arriving home, I was going to join a gym. A new gym opened a few months ago just over a mile from my home, and I paid a visit yesterday for a free workout.
I was like a kid in a candy store when I first walked in. Machines and weights galore, plus cardio equipment. After about 30 years of working out at home with just a few weights and a bench, I was eager to get started.
With so much to do and just one free workout during which to do it, I went from machine to machine, muscle-group to muscle-group. I wound it up with some treadmill stuff. I probably overdid it, but, like that kid in the candy store, I had to sample as much as I could.
The gym is running a promotion tomorrow and Saturday - half price enrollment. I intend to join. The fitness center in Jamaica whetted my appetite, and now I plan to workout in a public place for the first time since my teens at the local Boy's Club.
