When I arrived in Austin I was the heaviest I had ever been. I knew I had to do something and right after Christmas I joined Planet Fitness. They have a deal where you can join for $10 a month but I couldn’t do that. I needed to join at the Black Card level because I need to be able to go back and forth between Austin and Ohio.
I toured Planet Fitness and it was clean and everything seemed in good condition. I went a few times and just did cardio. That was great but I knew I needed more. I asked for an appointment with a fitness trainer and the next day met with Adam. He was a big dude and the first thing he did was weigh me. He looked surprised and said we weighed the same.
He set me up with proper cardio and then set up a series of machines for weight training. He set up a progressive schedule and made sure I was doing everything correctly. I did a workout and felt good.
The next day I was very sore but went back and did my cardio. Next my cardio and weight training. I’ve been doing it for three weeks and it is becoming a habit.
After the workout I often use the hydro-massage that is available to Black Card users. So far I’m very impressed with Planet Fitness.
