There comes a time when you need to move on. I’m gonna miss my gym peeps.
I started my workout journey, solo, back in 2011 with an at home video program & had amazing success. I still incorporate my workout videos till this day. Back in November of 2012, I decided to sign up for a gym membership so that I could train with a friend of mine.
It’s tough training on your own. Having to push yourself. I trained alone with no support, guidance or encouragement from sept of 2011- Nov 2012. So I know how easy it is to talk yourself out of waking up or working out. When I started working out with my friend, there was no time to try & talk myself out of my workouts. I was being held We had a set time to meet so I knew she would be waiting. Having this accountability was great, I really enjoyed it. However, all good things come to an end. It was so much fun having a #SwoleSister, but she got a promotion at work, yay!!!! But her new promotion changed her schedule. Which left me on my own again. Being the gymaholic that I am I transitioned into training solo, again.
Once again it is time to transition & change. I LOVE training, period! So it doesn’t matter to me if I train alone or with someone. However, training alone really restricts my growth when it comes to lifting heavy. Having a spotter, can really help you increase your lift & strength.
I have recruited my hubby has my SwoleMate but with 2 kids & his crazy schedule we have to train at 5am. Thank goodness for the now support of my family.
Since I have become a faithful gymaholic & have proven that this is now a lifestyle for my family has helped me build an amazing home gym. So, for now, it’s goodbye gym membership & hello garage gym.
My hubby and I are going to start a 30 day at home training program, that I’ve personally built. It’s going to be a mix of weight training, crossfit, beachbody programs & outdoors workouts. #AthleticTraining
I’ll post our day one photos tomorrow & then weekly updates.
