Gym Induction Part Two

I had my second induction at the gym this evening. 
I have been going and doing the treadmill, rowing and the dreaded cross  trainer. Circumstances got in the way of part two, but I finally got to it today.

I was slightly perturbed when I found I was having a male trainer, but I need not have worried. Ste was a very nice mature guy, was dreading it being a young chap. He was about three inches shorter than me and of course slimmer, but he was very nice.
Anyway he put me through my paces on the Resistance machines. Five different ones, I enjoyed it strangely, but he warned me I may  be sore on Saturday:0(
I don't know if it is the same in most gyms, but there are more older people than younger at the moment.  I think the average age tonight was about 45. Last time I was a member the average age was around 29.

I am going to go every other day and walk on the days I don't. 

BACK in The GROOVE!!!!!

Glad you're getting your groove back! I wasn't sure how often you check my blog so, although I already commented back on my post, I thought I'd pop over here and let you know that I have no issues with you using it.

Good job on working your plan. You should be so proud of yourself - you look great!

Glad you're groovin'!! And that your trainer turned out to be someone you can work with...that makes a huge difference! :)

Sounds great! Those resistance machines will really help tone you up and develop some great calorie-burning muscles too. Plus, muscles are better at dealing with insulin, so generally, those machines are your friends!

Glad Ste was OK and that you are feeling so comfortable at the gym, I have noticed that at my gym, people of all ages. I think it is because many gyms offer specials for the over 50s and in some areas, older people are getting encouragement from GPs to join up. All of which is marvellous in my opinion!
