So I’m 12 weeks into my budding love affair with the gym and I’m still wondering how I got here! I was one of those people adamant about never stepping foot in a gym because I preferred working out at home or going on long walks. That’s until my brother asked me to go halfsies on a Black Card membership at Fit4Less and I agreed. The great thing about this Black Card membership offer is that whenever my brother is not using the gym I can borrow his key tag that is issued
upon signup and use the facilities myself.
To be honest, I anticipated going once and deciding that was good enough for me, besides our family membership would only be $9.99 bi-weekly, I could skip buying a couple of expensive coffees to make it happen. However, after going 5 days a week for the past 12 weeks in, I’m singing a different tune!
So I thought I’d share 3 tips that have been keeping me going and also brag about my gym a little bit!
1. I thought I’d feel and look out of place. Like other plus size people, I had reservations about being in a place with ultra fit people, but I can honestly say that the vibe at Fit4Less has been inclusive, down to earth and I quickly realized that everyone was focused on their own goals.
2. I’ve found my groove thanks to the fully equipped and high quality facilities at Fit4Less. My routine is all about lifting weights, getting stronger and leaner, doing deadlifts and getting addicted to the pursuit of getting better. I’ve found that when I have busy days, it’s awesome that my Fit4Less is 24 hrs so I can still get a late night workout in! Also, I have 2 apps as part of my arsenal, Lose It! to help me track what I eat and Strong to help me track my workouts and see my progress!
3. I have an accountability squad made up of my friends who also have their own fitness goals. We check in every few days to see how we’re doing and that’s keeping me focused. Also, unbeknownst to the few people I’ve exchanged words with at the gym, they are also part of my squad. Their approving nods and encouraging gestures help to keep me going!
