    Yay! I've been poorly this week but I currently have my jacket spud in the oven for lunch and then I'll be all energised for the gym at about 4. If...my poorlyness decides to disappear :-( currently feel like a sofa day.

    What are you planning on doing at the gym? Are you going to start your spin classes again?

    I joined a gym for the first time 2 weeks ago, currently going 3 times a week on the advice of the trainer guy who worked me out a program.
    i mostly enjoy it but hate the crosstrainer with a vengence:eek:

    Any help with motivation would be great, and i am more than willing to offer it back:D
    spinning classes not for me just yet:eek:

    good luck xx

    omg the cross trainer is my arch nemesis, i always feel like im going to fall off it lol. but i still do 10 mins on it as i know its got to be doing something because of how hard it works me lol .

    when i started the gym last year i hadnt been to the gym for 4 years , n the first class i went and did was spin and i was hooked. im not going to lie it is HARD , but u can go at your own pace and stop if you need to for a while. i would recommend it to any one who wants to lose weight in a low impact way

    I agree, spin gets sooo much easier and more enjoyable! We have a machine which is like a stepper/cross trainer and I love it! It's so easy going yet works up a sweat and gets those calories burning!

    I've been "gyming" for years but only recently started classes (except Pilates that I've doen for a while). I love, love, love Combat - am totally addicted. Sweat loads and its only taken a few weeks to feel like I can easily manage the full class. Theres also a 50/50 one at our gym that is half combat and half pump which was great for breaking me in a bit more gently. havent been in the actual gym itself since I started the classes. I tried Spinning a few times but find it soooooo boring
