I joined a gym!!!

I finally joined a gym. I joined Monday, and I had to wait atleast 48 hours to pick up my papers and card from the gym. I'm going tonight to pick it up and hopes for Staurday to be my first workout! I chose a gym that is close to my trainstation that I get out of from work (so I would be more inclined into going after work) and also this gym is good because it's well over 20 blocks from house. I plan to walk going and coming home so that will burn more calories too! I'm so excited!!!!

Congratulations!! I hope this works out for you!

I had a trainer tell me once if I started out my workout by first streatching then run on the treadmill for 5-10 minutes then move to other equipment and target one muscle group that night. Then when I was done run on the treadmill again for 20 minutes and then call it a night. He said the first 5-10 minutes gets your heartrate at the target to burn calories and then you maintain that by working a muscle group. Then when you run the last 20 min that is when you are going to burn the most calories and fat.

He also told me to target one muscle group one night and then another the next and so on. He also said to take days off so your don't over work your muscles. I hope that helps!
