So you all know I live in the mountains. We have "gyms," although I guarantee they aren't what you picture when I say I'm headed to the gym. These gyms are usually privately owned and generally one room. You also are either given a key or the key code so you can literally workout 24/7, or whenever you feel the urge to.
Sounds cool, right? It's never crowded. If you can't sleep at 3am, you can go pump some iron. It's right up the road. Etc etc. It's cool unless you grew up swimming and are probably the worst runner in existence. Then these local gyms with their treadmills and long windy mountain roads just don't do it for you.
So for two years, you try to workout from home. You attempt to run. You try to go to the local gyms. But really, you need a pool. But the closest pool is an hour away and so you think you can just get survive by continuing to "exercise" at home. But is anyone REALLY successful just exercising at home? I mean, doesn't your bed sound so much better than doing crunches on the floor?
Long story short: I'm awful at exercising at home. I hate running. I hate treadmills. I love exercising at the gym. I love swimming. So, I bought a gym membership. At the gym with a pool. At the gym with a pool that's an hour away. Call me crazy or yeah...just call me crazy. 😂
