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).
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
Power Set of Body Weight Close Squat and Body Weight Sumo Squat
20 reps per exercise
Body Weight Lunge
Machine Hack Squat
44 lb x 30 reps
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.
So until next time (tomorrow). Stay tuned. I promise I will try to get more meaningful photos in there.
ON my next post I will write about the details of the gym.
