Sweat Sweat Sweat

Today is the first Monday of 2009 and what did I do? I was at the gym at 0530. I met with the Physical Therapist that runs the gym and although I am really overweight, the consultation wasn't terrible. I did 80 crunches in 60 seconds, My hamstring flexibility is better than average as well as my hand grip strength. Doing squats kicked my butt, which I have a feeling I will feel well into tomorrow. I go back on Wednesday again at 0530 to meet with him again. This time it will be the first of 2 more consultations, this time laying out my workouts. I am planning on working out 4 days/week for at least 60 mins a session, so I know that 2 days a week will be upper body the other 2 lower body but all four days will be cardio. Hopefully...since work pays for it, I will be able to keep up the work so that come August 8th...I will be in the best shape possible and I know that it will be the best shape I have been in in a long time :) I will keep you posted. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

pretty cool that not only do they pay for your membership, but for a trainer, too? awesome!

and just a comment from experience ... it's as much about what you eat as it is about working out, if not more. so if they also have a nutritionist you can see for free, i highly recommend it!

good luck!
