All that lycra, stretched over limbs
Toned with years of lifting weights
And running miles on treadmill belts,
A body built for Instagram
But what’s the price?
No chocolate bars or cakey treats,
Just vegetables, steamed to nowt,
I doubt I’d manage much of that.
I’m tempted to join the gym as there’s quite a reasonably priced one pretty close to where I live – and I’m keen to get a little stronger. But even as a fit person, I get anxious about the thought of going.
There is something truly frightening about setting foot inside a gym for the first time in a long time, when everyone else there seems to know exactly what they are doing, and they look good doing it.
Many years ago, I worked as a gym membership consultant and I used to love signing up people who were nervous because I loved to make them feel comfortable and show them that they were making a great choice to start getting fit.
I just hope that if I pluck up the courage to go and join, that I get a consultant that can be gentle too. All those big body builder types are pretty scary.
