If you’re like me, you’ve dreamed of having that perfect fitness regimen that makes it easy to get and stay fit. And, if you’re like me, you’ve never quite found it. There’s never enough time. Never enough energy. Never enough motivation. There ARE always plenty of excuses though.
I had worked at The Jones Center for more than a year when someone said to me, “don’t you have a fitness center at your office?” Not only were they right, but quite frankly, I had zero excuses for not finding time to exercise. I’m at a premier workout facility 5 days a week and have the opportunity to swim, bike, ice skate, run, lift weights, stair climb, play basketball, and even take fitness classes right at my fingertips any time of day.
That statement was the motivation I needed to get started in January and, six weeks later, I’m still going strong. The Center offers 30 minute fitness classes every weekday that pack a big punch into every minute. I started there. Not only did I find that I felt better and had more energy, but I quickly formed new friendships and found the camaraderie of my new peers had me returning nearly every day of the week. Once I got into the routine of working out, I was addicted to the endorphins it gave me. I started going early to run laps before class and soon people started joining me.
