Leg Day at the Gym | Feeling the BURN!

I finally enrolled myself at the gym and had a go. Its been MONTHS since I last stepped foot in one. Its quite funny because the last gym I went to was actually Eclipse 24/7 Fitness Center in Manila. And now I am enrolled in Eclipse Healing and Body Design in Bacolod.

At first I thought (and hoped) that the two were connected, but they’re not. (oh well). But I guess I am attracted by this certain brand name ECLIPSE. (heeheehee)

Anyway, so here is my experience on my first day there.

I availed of their basic package of unlimited use of the gym (equipments and weights). Originally it cost 1400, but since I am a student, I got a discount so all I had to pay was 1200. What does this fee entail me? Unlimited use of the facilities (excluding the studio classes), a free tumbler, a baler, 1 week assistance from a trainer, locker and towel (to be returned after your workout).

Forgive the low quality photos for now, I was not able to bring my camera because i had just come from university and my bag was heavy as it is.

So today I was assisted by Marty Laoang, a model, turned body builder and personal trainer. He made me do LEG DAY today.. on my first day back into the gym after such a long time…. LEG DAY (my legs are dead right now).

exercise log:

I log my workouts at FITOCRACY.COM

  • Walking (treadmill)

    Power set of Leg Extensions Lying Leg Curls
    22 lb x 15 reps
    33.1 lb x 15 reps
    3 SETS

    Power Set of Body Weight Close Squat and Body Weight Sumo Squat
    20 reps per exercise
    3 SETS

    Body Weight Lunge
    20 reps
    3 SETS

    Machine Hack Squat
    44 lb x 30 reps
    3 SETS

I know my workout doesn’t look a lot right now but I swear my legs are dying right now. I felt the burn as soon as I started on those exercises. I have to admit that I am RIDICULOUSLY out of shape but slow and steady wins the race.

So I am really looking forward to making my fitness goals a reality at last.

ON my next post I will write about the details of the gym.
