I discovered that one of the benefits of being based out of the office where I now live is that there's free gym membership for staff based there in the hotel gym next door.
I've had lunch, dinner and drinks in the food part so seems only fair to explore the gym, and the price was right.
First up I had to justify myself to a lady at out firm and get an official letter.
Then I took that over, filled in name and address and am registered.
I've not been a gym member for getting on for 10 years and I was sporadic at best then, so this will be a bit of a challenge for me.
They do lots of classes ranging from Pilates to something which rivals army basic training, so I'll get some advice. Classes work better for me, espeically if others are going as it makes you stay the whole time whereas I wimp off a bit if left to my own devices.
Of course this raises the sartorial question of what a non slim non young non fit person should wear to the gym, and of course if the patterns are in Burda magazine. Am open to suggestions.
