For a while, I used to force myself to go to the gym. My reason for going was to "get fit" and just generally for something to do. I didn't used to like it very much, I didn't see the point, so I stopped going. But now I want to get back into it because recently I have realised that I need a more specific goal to reach other than just simply "getting fit" and having something to do... that just makes it seem like a chore, when really it should be fun! (Ironically, because of the sweating and hard work... at least I thought it was amusing. ) To those of you who go to the gym, or have been, what are your goals and objectives? What keeps you going? If it helps, I used to do a lot of upper body training on machines, mostly arms and chest with the some ab crunches and bikes on the side- overall about an hour's work I guess.
