I have been unfaithful! Well. more disloyal perhaps. As I have posted before, our Racquet Club is closing soon and we have been looking at other options and Lucy and I went and joined Gold's Gym today.
I don't know if it was the Hip Hop classes. Maybe it was the cinema room where they have cardio machines where the seats would be and show movies to work out to. Or was it the steam room, sauna and jacuzzi - or the lap pool. The free personal assessment? The fact that membership extends to all Gold's Gyms worldwide? I don't know. Even though it is huge and impersonal looking compared to the racquet club, I felt good there. The clientele looked like a good mix of people - not all fake boobs and tiny shorts, actually I don't remember seeing anyone like that. We met the guy who is going to do our personal assessments next week. He is kind of scary, but he's going to give us a thorough going over, and I think that is what I need to get me both more motivated and on the right track to my goals.
We will carry on going to classes at the racquet club until September because I enjoy the outside water classes and I have my weight loss pact with Holly the power bar teacher. There has been talk of negotiations with the new company to keep the fitness department going until next April - or even June but I am getting a bit fed up with all the uncertainty, and really it is just putting off the inevitable. It will be a shame not to be in classes with people I have grown to know well over the years, and I will especially miss the instructors, they have been great.
