Dear Diary, I Still Hate the Gym
I still cannot stand the gym. Since January, I have had a gym membership that I've been using. Even though I like a few classes and instructors (POP Pilates, BBarreless and Strength Training), I still actually hate the gym. I dread going, it's kind of ridiculous.
I find there are few reasons why I hate the gym, even if I'm there at least three times a week. First, I've been hit on by guys who have no tact and don't get that I just want to be left alone in my sweat and quest to have a trimmer figure. Second, I know the gym represents sweating and pain, both of which I'm not a fan of. Lastly, I'm not a "workout" kind of person, I do it because I have to, not because I'm genuinely thrilled (outside of POP Pilates, that shit is pretty awesome).
So, in summary, I hate the gym but go and do enjoy a few classes. You don't have to love working out to go to the gym and you don't have to be fit to go to the gym. The whole point of a gym is to promote health and fitness, regardless of level of health and/or fitness. If you've never tried a Barreless or POP Pilates class, I would suggest you do it. I'm a total fan!
