Workout Criteria

So in case you don’t stalk my Instagram yet (follow me @flabbutfab) I will let you in on a little secret. I am kind of a gym rat. I have always wanted to be one of those people who could workout in their garage, but I just can’t. I have tried the at home thing and we have sunk way too much money into weights, a treadmill, and lots of DVD’s that are all collecting dust in our garage.


Messy Garage


Womp. Womp.

I have finally realized that I just need to share my bubbly adorable personality with the world so essentially working out at home would be a disservice to others.

While I have literally ALWAYS struggled with my weight, I have really never struggled with my fitness. I love to try new workouts, and I can pretty much hang with most programs. Well, except for sticking to only 1.

Over the years I have tried whatever was the newest and shiniest trend. From this I was able to figure out my niche exercise wise and there are definitely some non fitness factors that play into where I ended up working out these days.

There is of course the social aspect. I’m not looking to find my next bestie at the gym but I also don’t want the person next to me to be so balls to the wall that I don’t feel comfortable cracking a joke. I just want a place with good energy and people who don’t take themselves too seriously.

Obvi it needs to be clean, and have ample parking. Now with the kiddos, childcare is a definite plus. Finally, I am a class gal. I love a good fitness class and I am 1,000x more likely to hit the gym if there is a class or a trainer waiting for my. Mama needs some accountability.

What do you look for in a gym?

Until next time,
