Gym Day

First day (really) back at the gym today, went with a personal trainer, Jason, very nice guy, personable and all.

New York Sports Club is almost worth the monthly rate- $75 is steep but their equipment is quite nice, and there is a whole "circuit" weight training setup which makes things very easy. Plus the view of the Manhattan skyline over the rooftops of Brooklyn is worth the price of admission.

"So, obviously you are here to build some muscle," - yeah, thanks Jason, I am built like a girly man. But otherwise he was quite informative. I really cannot stress how much more motivating it is to visit with a personal trainer, rather than go it alone at the gym. Getting over the initial fear of close scrutiny is a hurdle worth jumping.
