Hey guys, So I'm just looking for experiences. I'm a mom of 2 boys, 40 years old. About 5 years ago I decided that I needed to really make some changes in my health and fitness, so I joined a local gym and signed up for a personal trainer. I saw my trainer avidly 3 times a week for a full year, and although I saw some changes in my physique, I did not get the results I expected, and I really didn't feel better, so I began slacking off. I started finding excuses not to go - too tired, just ate, too busy, etc. I never felt comfortable at the gym - I have issues with folks watching me workout (not that they were - but it's what I perceived). 3 years ago, I finally cancelled my gym membership and turned to at-home fitness and had amazing results. I was working out daily instead of 3 times a week. I was getting my workouts done, in my PJs most mornings, in 30 -45 minutes vs the hours at a time I was spending at the gym, and I started to feel more energized and better about myself - I think because I followed the nutrition plans on my programs too (I wasn't getting nutrition advice at the gym). Anyway - I've been at it for 3 years now and feel fantastic. It had me wondering - does anyone else have this same experience? Anyone else do better at home, by themselves? Find less excuses and so they're more consistent? I was so skeptical when I started because I really felt like you had to join a gym or be in a class to get results and I have been shocked in proving myself wrong. ~Cheers, Super Curious Christy
