Changing up a Routine

From lounge lizard to gym bunny!


From anyone who knows me I am a proper lounge lizard. Who likes her routine, scared of change and is very partial to a cheeseboard more than once a week.  Needless to say as per my ramblings in my last post something had to give.


So I have decided to give my boring, work, home, eat, TV, eat (again) routine give it a little mix up. So I signed up to a fancy pants gym.  I know what your thinking why Melissa do you need a fancy pants gym to make a change and I am now going to tell you why.


I am not going back to work

Not has harsh as it seems, I work at a Hotel as an event manager, said hotel also has a lovely gym attached to it meaning Melissa gets a free a gym membership – now I can hear some of cussing. My reason for signing up to a gym elsewhere was to give me a motive to go, when I go to the gym I don’t want to feel like I am going to work but I would like a good atmosphere, somewhere different from my day to day.


The Fancy Equipment

I need a big motive to get out bed in the morning at 7am and drag my sorry ass to the gym and at the club I have joined I do feel like I have a motive and that is MyWellness key by Technogym. This snazzy pieces of technology allows me to track all of my progress I log in as I enter the gym, it records all the cardio I do &and resistance weights so it really is remarkable, and if you are someone like me who likes everything filled out and in its place, then I don’t want a low bar on my graph from not doing well in the gym that day.  But most importantly it means the trainers can keep an eye on my progress, I can have a review with anyone of the trainers at any point so they are able to see my progress so that in itself is something to work towards.


Wellness

Finally the other reason I wanted to join was for my wellness and sanity. Not only to I get snazzy equipment I receive access to over 50 classes including yoga and Pilates, pool & Jacuzzi, it is just a lovely place to go and if I want I can take my laptop and write an awesome blog post from the terrace which over looks the lake. 

So now that I am paying through my nose for membership it may give me some energy to go and change my routine to become a better me.
