I hated excises when I was a child.
But last 20 odd years, I have always been a member of a gym somewhere and have been quite active.
Recently, I switched my gym membership to the family membership. Now everyone in my family get to use the gym, the pool and join in the fitness classes.
I didn’t pressure anyone. I introduced my older son to the spin (indoor group cycling class) and circuit training, and he enjoyed them. He started to bring his best friend. My younger son also joined.
My husband was very active in his teenage years playing tennis, but he has been busy with his work in adult years and hasn’t done much excise at all last two decades. But seeing us going off to the gym, he finally decided that it was his turn.
He came to a fitness class with me last week. We have been together over 17 years, but this was the very first time we did a fitness class together! He also got an induction for the gym and quite motivated to improve his fitness levels. I am very happy for him.
One of the fun in the gym is you get to wear any colour you want. Some of our members dress in shocking pink and luminescent yellow. Our instructor looks great in very well colour coordinated outfits. I came up with making a set of instructors figures in her class.
I always paid a great attention to the diet of my family. I am the only one who goes to grocery shopping. My family eats what I buy and eats the food I cook. I believe there isn’t any more important task than cooking and feeding your family. Mums have an enormous responsibility.
Now, I am paying for the family gym membership. I will be nagging if it goes to waste!
