15mins x-trainer/30 mins spin bike (alternating between riding and standing riding)
Had a really good session at the gym today. Still haven’t got my orthtics back so I may have to go back to gym tomorrow, I am really hoping for a call from Pod today to say come “come and get them” so I can start running again.
I had my nose put out of joint today and I am not sure if this is the go now or its just my gym. Last week I made an appointment to have a new gym program written up and unfortunately I had to cancel it. So today I tried to re-schedule that appointment and was told that I have to make an appointment with personal trainer (1/2hr) and be charged $40 for it 😯 Apparently thats what they do now. The girl who originally made appointment wasn’t aware of that so had I turned up, I probably would have been charged to get a new program done. I find this amazing. In all my years of gym, it has always been a part of your membership to have ongoing re-assessments and new programs written up. I would be really interested to hear from others who have gym memberships and what the go is. Is this a sign of the times? The funny thing is I have been thinking about changing gyms on and off over the last 4-6months as I am thinking I would like to have use of pool but there are a few pro’s for staying put, the main reason being 3 year old enjoys the creche and I can always get him in at a drop of a hat. One of the other reasons I was thinking of changing is that my experience when asking for a program to cater to my running, the gym instructors/personal trainers aren’t always tuned in to this which then leads me to look up my own exercise 🙄 If I have to start paying to have new programs written up, they would definitely want to make sure that it will in fact compliment my running 😆
