Since returning from my trip to the Heartland Spa, I decided to join Felinity, a women's gym and pole-dancing club. So far, I have avoided the pole dancing classes but I have enjoyed Socacize (most fun ever!), Morning Madness Sculpt and free sessions with a personal trainer.
The addition of my gym membership has had many benefits. While I still love working out at home, this gym is small and all of the members are extremely kind and supportive. It's like having a Shape.com in real life :) Also, I find that the classes give me a boost that I can't get from working out at home. It feels good to sweat in public.
The most important thing I have gotten out of this and my stay at the Heartland is finding "The Zone" I feel focused on my fitness goals rather than focusing on my calorie intake as that is already on autopilot. While I am not at my goal weight, I feel that the momentum is going hard enough to take me all the way!
Do you currently work out at a gym? Which do you prefer: co-ed or womens'? I always thought that I preferred my home workout but now I realize that the blend is perfect for me.
Monday I get my body fat analyzer so that I can really ensure that I am losing the right kind of weight. I'll let you know how it goes as soon as I get it. The last time I checked my body fat I was at 41%, let's see how it's changed!
Happy Healthy Living,
