O... sweet Gymnasio ♥
So I am not only a Yoga fan, I am also a gym fan. I think I would fall into the "gym rat" category. Don't get me wrong friend's I LOVE yoga, Love, Love, Love. I actually first started going to the gym after having practiced yoga for about 2 years and decided I wanted to loose a little extra weight, build more muscle, and gain more endurance. I haven't stopped since. Wow... how time goes by.
ANYWAY, I started off with 24 hour fitness which I thought was a pretty cool gym, depending on what location you go to. Some facilities can be... well.. not so inviting. I am now a member at L.A. Fitness in Eastlake and well, if you haven't been there yet, it's actually a very nice gym with new machines, people that are really into working out, looking good etc. I think I am a different kind of gym person though. I don't enjoy making friends at the gym, running into people I know, or making eye contact with anyone. I am totally not anti social I just like to go to the gym and enjoy my sweet time with the cardio and weight machines. I don't want to share this limited time I have every time I go on chit chatting. I figure If I want to talk to someone I can call, email, text, visit, or go out with them. Am I totally weird? Don't think i'm totally evil, I have run into people I know there a few times and if they initiate conversation I will talk and polite, but it's not a favorite thing of mine to do.
OK, the reason why I am writing about the gym is to see what kind of gym person you are. Are you the kind of gym person that has to go with someone to keep you entertained? Do you socialize while you are trying to get your heart beat up during your cardio? Do you go into the ladies locker room often during your work out to check your hair and makeup? Do you go to meet fellow gym go-ers and perhaps score a date? Or are you kind of a nut like me and like to be the sweatiest girl in the facility, don't care about how you look because you are there to kick booty not impress anyone (except your neighbor on the treadmill next to you that you are trying to out run) and even bring a change of clothes because you don't want to leave a trail of sweat where ever you go?
The best is, getting in a nice long run (at least what I think is long) and finishing up my work out with a Yoga mini session... ahh..... so relaxing... such a nice treat for your kick butt work out at the gym... YOGA.
