When I was 14, I started working out with school friends at our local Boys Club. I stopped after having some medical issues, and have been off and on sporadically throughout my life.
In 2013 I had a gym membership that lasted 12 months. The music they played wasn't motivational, so i gave it up after the membership ran out.
I joined a new Anytime Fitness gym that will open January 2018 in the same office park as where I work. And I have headphones...
Why I Love it
I'm not going to get fitter without effort and discipline. Physical activity helps me deal with the stresses of life. It's sad, however, that gyms and fitness clubs tend to elevate stress with loud "motivation" music. Investing in my health and in good headphones.
