Warning this post has a very negative attitude!! :)
I have never loved going to a gym, or this was until I joined 24 hours fitness center in Vancouver WA. Woow that fitness center was great. It had everything I possible could think of, Pool, aerobic machines, weights and a great kids club where my kids had lots of fun. Best of all I only paid 30 $ a month.
After being a member of 24 hours I thought it would be hard finding a good fitness center in Argentina. I looked though a lot of the one around my house, but seriously non of them were places I would like to go. (I wanna go a place where "normal" people goes not a place where they all look like bodybuilders.!!)
I found this great fitness center called Megatlon. (It had a Starbucks in side it!!! I LOVE THAT.. Though seriously what does the work out help when I right after would think a coffee????) Unfortunately I had to pay close to 100 $ a month for going there! First time I was here I decided to use those money, but ended not using it enough, mostly because of bad excuses and a "long" transport time. (This was another excuse). Because of this I decided not to use so much money on a gym again.
Back home in Denmark I worked at a brand new fitness center. It had all the good machines that they use in 24 hours fitness.. It was really great to use the machines I know and to work out in a place where there were all kinds of people working out.
Back to my complaining!! Emilio had join this new gym and I thought it would be awesome to go together!! :) I still do believe it is a good thing going together... BUT BUT BUT that gym is horrible the treadmill look like they will break if I strand on them. There is only one bike and one elliptical that also looked like it is 20 years old and bought in Walmart for 20 $!!! Even the weights is those weird one where u have to carry the weight yourself and put it on the machines... I might be able to puss 62 kg with my leg but there is no fucking way I can carry them to the machine with my hands!! So happy I had Emilio to help me!!! =) I already payed for the gym and as I wanna loss weight I have to go there... Good things is that it takes me 5 min to go there.. I will be trying there classes out and hope they will be greater... Just can't believe a gym like that can cost 28 $ which is just 2 $ less than 24 hours fitness!!! WTF
Back to the point! Find yourself a gym you like and where you feel comfortable I believe that, that will give you the best work outs.. =) Though I am still happy I will be training with Emilio but gotta admit I am dreaming myself back to 24 hours fitness.. :) Just had to share my anger with the whole world and make the point that fitness center aren't the same in the whole world!!!
What kind of a fitness center do you join?
