My son is a Body Builder,so Hubby decided he wants to get in shape & stop being a couch-potato & he joined about 2 weeks ago.Think he felt bad leaving me at home,so he talked me into having a trial visit (Fri).
I went round all the equipment whilst watching Emmerdale on big TV's located everywhere,burnt off some calories,used muscles that I didn't know I had & came out sweating,I had curly hair & jelly legs,how's that good for you?!
I'm joining tomorrow!!!
