Every journey starts somewhere.
The gym seems to be a bit on the busier side this week. By the time 6:30am rolls around there are people strolling in. Glad I start a little bit earlier so I can do what I need to do before the masses arrive!
I am glad that new people are showing up though and they are trying. You really have to start somewhere and we all have those memories of what it was like to start exercising. Those memories are very vivid for me...hiding in the women's only area, analyzing every sticker on the machine and reading it over and over before trying, staring at the free weights on the wall wondering who uses these and why. :)
I haven't really had to wait for any machines or equipment this week but I have had to be a little more flexible in how I do my workout. Example...I am supposed to do the weighted hyperextension after I do my squats. It says below that I did those first but I actually had to wait until the end of my workout to finish those today because the equipment was being used (and rested on my someone also).
I am flexible though and want to be a welcoming smile to those that are at the gym, trying some new things. This could be their first time at a gym and hopefully they won't give up. Maybe if we all had a gym contract like this we wouldn't give up so fast.
