Judgement-Free Zone

So, I joined a fitness club yesterday.

I'm not a big fan of dishing out money for something like exercising.

I figure if I won't even walk out my front door to run, or simply pop in a DVD and work out, what makes me think I'll drive to work out somewhere else. It's actually less convenient, right?

But, when a deal comes along like this, it's hard to pass up: $1 to sign up, $10 a month, no contract.

Pretty much a no-brainer. And, the club is only 10 minutes from my house.

So, I did it.

Then, I convinced a friend of mine to join in and to hold me accountable for actually going several times a week.

From the first moment I walked into the club, I knew this was my kind of club.

This sat on the counter (in two buckets).

I've never been to a club that offered free candy at the check-in counter.

Not only are there free Tootsie Rolls, but also this.

Could you read that? There's a Pizza Night and Bagel Morning.

Now, I understand why the guy that signed us up was a little chunky and the club's slogan is "we're a judgement-free zone."

Don't judge me because I run for an hour, but then eat three pieces of pizza or grab a Coke out of their cooler (yeah, Coke in a gym cooler).

But, I'm convinced that this will work.

Wish me luck.

I'll start soon. Maybe Monday ... maybe after Christmas or New Year's.

NO! I'm starting tomorrow.

That is exactly the kind of working out I like to do. Absolutely genius.

My husband and I went to a Planet Fitness when we lived in Maine. Loved it! I even brought the kids when I had no other choice. They sat at the tables and read or colored. The people there were super cool about it. I'm not really a 'gym' person, but I liked it there and we went all the time. Wish I had one nearby again.
