One of my goals this year is to reclaim my health and wellness. I was doing so well for quite a while and then… well, I lost a little momentum and I let life get in the way. But little by little I’ve started getting myself back to the treadmill.
Now that I’m beginning to get back into my routine, it’s the perfect time to start incorporating something new. A group fitness class, my dream of finally trying a Zumba class, maybe? I’m not sure… but whatever it is, I’m looking forward to trying something new and injecting some life and energy into my regular fitness routine.
Enter Town Sports.
With six Philadelphia locations (and many more in the Boston, New York and Washington, DC areas), it’ll be easy to find a workout space that suits my needs.
I’m especially looking forward to trying the XPressLine service: it’s a trainer-supervised program that gives members a full-body strength workout in fewer than 22 minutes. Best of all? It’s free! This is going to be a great addition to the cardio I already get from running. I’ve always had a tough time incorporating strength training into my regular routine, mainly because I’m never sure if I’m doing the exercises correctly. So I’m especially glad to see that it’s overseen by a trainer, who can let me know if I need to make some adjustments.
Add in the kids’ care/babysitting that’s available on-site? And they have everything a mom (or dad) needs to get back to the gym!
One tip that’s helped me get back into the groove is to be already dressed to workout in the mornings when I drop my son off at preschool. That way, my daughter and I have no excuses (well, one less excuse, anyway) to get out there and fit a workout in while my son’s in school. Same goes for working moms or dads – my husband often brings his workout gear with him to work, so he can stop at the gym before coming home. Once he walks in the door, it’s that much tougher for him to get motivated to get back out for a workout.
