It was so easy to call it quits at the gym.
- I really didn’t like going there all that much.
So when the pandemic hit, it was easy not to renew my membership. The truth be told, I really have a hard time getting motivated to do anything but sit in the air conditioning of my living room after work. I know this is not good for me so I workout. Still, going to the gym was not my favorite sort of healthy effort. Getting out of the air conditioning for a walk or something like that was not as tough. But going into a place where the commercial HVAC equipment seems to be working overtime just to make a dent with the heat and humidity was another. I never felt comfortable in there with the thermostat setting. Yet, I think my insecurity about working out with everyone else was something that was more discomforting. But I had to have a better plan than just being done with the gym when didn’t renew my membership. I liked getting out of the air conditioning and getting outside for a walk but that wasn’t enough. So I finally did something so I wouldn’t have to get a gym membership ever again. I put in a ductless heat pump in the basement and added a home gym. Now, I have the best quality heating and air that I could ask for while working out. And I find that I’m much, much more motivated to get after a workout thanks to the great air conditioning in my own gym.
