"Today, not tomorrow, not next week!" That should have been my mindset after getting back from Bangkok with 5 kgs. added to my weight before I left the Philippines. O well, I guess its better late than never. It's a good thing that my fitspiration is closer to home- Janvie. Janvie gave me the idea of going back to the gym after two years and that was the best decision I made for this month.
Well, it's almost summer anyway, might as well get that beach bod I dreamt about since last year. So to start off, I visited one of Davao's prominent workout places- Marco Polo Gym; And of course I've got to be dressed for the part, that's why in times like these, I always do my shopping online at ZALORA Philippines. As soon as I have looked the part, time to put my game face on!
Since it has been two years since my last crunch time at the gym, I took upon myself to start my routine with something simple, some stretches and cardio exercises are always a good way to start something rigorous. Plus, it's a great way to prevent your muscles from soring after a hard day's work from the gym.
Some of you may wonder what does the different equipment in a gym do or whether which part of your body needs toning up. That's why its a gym-goers basic right to ask the gym instructors or coaches how should things be done. Tip: They are professionals of course, so they can be trusted and they know the gym better than you do- so just trust their skills and you'll be surprised of the many wonders they can do and advise you.
I also did some weights to tone up my arms a little bit due to the sagging areas. I don't want to be the kind of person who waves at someone with a flabby arm.
You can make the gym your home for the day or just stay for a couple hours. Whatever option it is that you choose, it's always important to keep your eye on your goal. Never give up no matter how sore your body could get and always be up for the challenge, you'd be surprised with the results if you do....trust me.
