Having Friends in the Gym | Finally Having a Life


 

One thing that helps me stay motivated to keep going back to the gym everyday is having gym friends. I know it takes focus to be able to work out properly and complete your sets. But nothing is more effective than having people there who encourages and urges you through it all.

So in my one week in the gym I have met a few people and today I made new friends who are incredibly awesome, laid back and friendly.

I’m really glad to have met these people. They will be in friday’s video compilation of my gym week along with the other friend’s  I’ve made.

I don’t believe in the saying that people say about those who go to the gym have no lives. For me, ever since going to the gym, I feel like I finally have a life. Do you agree or Disagree?

      I think big gyms with a lot of members is a lot harder to make friends at. (i feel). So far the gyms I’ve been to are smaller than the big commercial ones and there is a tight knit community of people who really help each other out. Which is nice and fun.
