The Gym is Feeling a Little More Homely Today
I’ve officially decided to build and workout in my very own home gym.
I’ll be honest — I’ve been feeling pretty down over my new gym situation. It’s sucked all motivation from me. I don’t want to come off as spoiled, but going from my old gym Hampton Hill to Fitness Zone was quite the shell shock. Not only did Fitness Zone not have all the equipment I was accustomed to, but it was also more expensive (I went to HH for free), further away from my house, and felt cold and too much like a chain. It didn’t feel like home. It didn’t seem like it could ever feel like home.
You know what feels like home? Home.
Over the past two weeks, I’ve been mulling the possibility of using part of my upstairs “man cave” as a gym. I’ve thought of the pros/cons, costs, logistics, etc, and decided to bite the bullet late last week and make a few purchases for the gym. As of Sunday, I had my first workout at home and I absolutely loved it. It’s different, but I’m hooked.
My membership at Fitness Zone is now cancelled.
Switching to a home gym is yet another example of how my world has been turned upside down the last couple of months, but I finally feel at ease. I’m finally working out again. My friend who does personal training in Bristol is thrilled — he’s a huge fan of home gyms.
And just as important, I’m finally posting again. It feels very good to be back.
More details coming — I’ll see you tomorrow.
