As the winter is almost here, it can be really hard to find the enthusiasm to want to go out and workout. It’s usually absolutely freezing (over here anyway) and I know I would rather be curled up on the sofa in a blanket with a warm drink. I’ve found out though that even with my illness, I do need to workout in some way or another. When I am sedentary for a number of days and I’m not feeling too well, I end up feeling worse and my digestion becomes sluggish as well, so I need to do some level of activity when I can.
I’ve recently started learning Qi Gong which is a form of Thai Chi, so it’s incredibly gentle for me (please note I am learning, so my movements are not probably exactly how they should be). Even if I am not doing that though, I’m enjoying stretches and just general movements to keep my muscles active. For those of you who don’t have limitations health wise, I have the perfect solution for you though. As it’s too cold to be working out outside all the time, gyms are a great way to do it and if you’re often travelling around, sometimes that can be sacrificed. Not anymore though!
I recently found out about Pay As U Gym, which acts as a membership to any gym around you, so no matter what city you are in, you can find one of the gyms they partner with and use them without having to pay for an annual membership with a new gym each time. Your gym membership would be for all of the gyms in affiliation with Pay As U Gym, which I think is so useful. So many of us love to travel around and I know a lot of you fashion bloggers are all over the country for events, so keeping fit doesn’t have to be forgotten. Who doesn’t love a flexible gym membership?
For those of you interested in what I’m wearing here though for my outfit, the leggings are the Freddy WR.UP Sports Leggings which I love. These have support and stitching around the bottom and hips to be flattering and to lift as well, so they look good as well as perform good (you can read a review of the Freddy WR.UP Leggings I wrote). I got this pair from Cuba Clothing and paired them with a Topshop Jumper, my Adidas Gisele Shoes and a hat as it’s cold. I’ve seen a lot of gym girls wearing these leggings so I know they work really well in the gym as well, for those of you who frequent the gyms. So what do you think about Pay As U Gym? Do you think it’s a concept you could see yourself using?
