I Got a Gym Membership

January 30, 2008 Posted by Vaire

The new company we work for has a policy that they pay 2000 SEK per year to cover gym costs. The employee gets to choose which gym they go to and will have to pay the membership cost over 2000. This has actually made it possible for me to get to a gym.

I took an advantage of the offer and have gotten a membership in my local gym. I want to build stamina and shape my muscles. I'm not going to count how many calories I've burnt because I won't be focusing on that. I just want to be able to walk for hours like I used to and have a shapely body.

Having a gym so close to the flat makes it more likely that I'll make it there. The gym in Dublin was a bother to get to. First you walked for half an hour to get there from work, after training you had to walk for 40 minutes to get home. Ugh! Now it takes two minutes, tops, to walk home from the gym and the bus from work stops right in front of it.

I haven't yet decided if I should take the public transport in gym clothes or change there. Or perhaps go home first, change there and then go to the gym.

What I have decided is that I shall go to the gym at least once a week and get a healthier body. Even if I have to brave the lingerie store and buy a sports bra first!
