All those walks on the beach in Oregon were great for uplifting my spirit but did little to strengthen my body. Getting my body back into shape is one of my key goals during our short stay here in Nevada. And as gets proven again and again, when you articulate your intention, doors open.
The door that opened for me was discovering a fitness center — Planet Fitness — that left no option except to say YES! No commitment is required, the monthly rate is affordable (as low as $10 a month) and a physical trainer designs your custom workout program. Plus the new Sparks facility is walking distance from the RV park. Talk about a no-brainer!
Although I’ve worked out in a number of fitness centers over the years, I never learned how to use the cardio equipment effectively for my heart rate. The personal trainer selects the programs and their duration so that I’m now working at my target heart rate and will continue doing so as my endurance builds.
Wow! Can I feel my heart pumping and pounding! The workout demands that I push beyond my resistance — that threshold where it’s so tough I want to quit. And you know what? I push through it! And it feels great on the other side!
It feels so good to know I’m choosing to build a strong, healthy body!
