That’s because there haven’t been any since March.
It’s true. My account is frozen, and I haven’t stepped foot into my old gym since before I had my surgery.
And I don’t miss it.
To be honest, I started realizing how much I dreaded going to the gym every day. While I used to hate running outside because I could find more distractions on the treadmill (television, magazines, people watching, etc.), I grew to hate the treadmill (who am I?). Driving over to the gym after work to fight for machines became the hardest part of my day, and for me, fitness needs to be something I enjoy.
Once I began fitmixer boot camp, I realized how much fun I was having working out at home. Not only did I love the fact that I could do my workout any time I wanted, I could play the music I want, I could watch anything on T.V., and I didn’t have to keep my poor Chloe locked up in her cage. I could sprint around the block, do half my boot camp workout, complete another neighborhood loop, and finish the exercises. I suddenly had so much freedom and flexibility; it was as if I was suddenly my own boss. And I loved it. It wasn’t about the money, but saving $55 a month is definitely nice, too.
This is part of why I love fitmixer boot camp. I can do the workouts on my own time, in my own space, and I don’t need anything but my yoga mat sometimes for extra padding. I haven’t picked up my dumbbells in forever, yet some of my muscles are more toned than ever before. I loved the X-spin class at my gym, but the fitmixer exercises are more varied and give me just as good a workout. I have the freedom to do what I want, when I want, where I want to do it.
And we all know how much I like that.
So, my exercise routine as of late? This session of boot camp just ended, so I’ve been recycling old fitmixer boot camp workouts. I’ve been running. I’ve been taking days off. It’s been really, really nice becoming more relaxed in my approach to fitness, and I’m enjoying myself a whole lot more.
Gimme that freedom.
Have you ever drastically changed up your fitness routine? Contemplated quitting the gym?
