It’s been almost a year since I’ve had access to a full-service gym, and I decided that it was time to change that. Planet Fitness is close to home, inexpensive, and the 30-minute express workout seems like a good option for me as I strive to get back into a fitness groove.
Leaving my marketing position at the YMCA was an incredible blessing for a number of reasons and because even when I was there, I didn’t take advantage of working only steps away from a gym. Yes, I worked out. Yes, I was able to positively impact a lot of people. And yes, I got certified to teach group fitness, but my life and career have blossomed in incredible ways since I left.
Working in higher education is a dream come true for me, and while I do have access to a state-of-the-art gym on campus, I’d rather hit the gym after work at a location that’s closer to home.
As I was looking through membership options at Planet Fitness, I decided that the black membership is the way to go. Michael can join me anytime, and the hydromassage is also a nice benefit. The location that I’ll visit most frequently is less than 10 minutes from home, so it will be easy enough to go before or after work. My plan is to start with the 30-minute express workout and develop from there.
It’s been a long time since I chased endorphins on a regular basis, and I’m excited about it.
Does anyone here go to Planet Fitness? If so, how do you like it compared to other gyms that you’ve been to?
