For years and years and years and years I had a gym membership. Sometimes I was great about using it, other times I wasn’t. For many years it was right across the street from my office and I literally would walk across the street at lunch and workout. Then that gym closed and the new gym was farther away, but I went there pretty regularly with my friend Kelsey.
When I moved to Medford it didn’t take long for me to join a local gym, but I almost immediately had a bad experience there with the personal trainer (who I found out later was my next door neighbor – awkward!), which made it uncomfortable for me to go there. I went for a while and actually started using the pool, which was my first experience with swimming for fitness. Eventually though, I slacked off and eventually cancelled the membership.
It was fine because I was doing lots of home workouts, hiking, walking and other fitness activities so I didn’t feel like the gym was my solution at that time.
Recently I have really been feeling the pull of the gym. The reason? I want to get back to swimming and yoga classes.
I started researching pools and gyms in the area a few weeks ago. I made some calls and looked into pricing and ultimately decided to try out a different gym than the last one I joined here in Medford.
