ScaleOk, so how many of you actually made New Years resolutions?  Do people still do that?  Honestly, I’m not sure, but if they do, I have no doubt that going to the gym would be in a top contender for resolution spots.  If that’s the case, let me help you!There are going to be a ton of reasons to go to the gym, and every one of them is a good one.  Some people go to lose those extra pounds that Christmas blessed us with, some go because they want to get into shape.  There’s the obvious health reasons.  And of course there’s the social aspect of it.  But where should you go?  Yeah, getting that home gym seemed like a good idea, but lets face it…after your first week of using it, how much dust will it collect before you decide that it’s taking up too much room and you throw it on kijiji?

There are a ton of benefits to actually going to a gym.  I can tell you from personal experience that going to an actual established gym will help tremendously with motivation…a lot more than staring at that home gym in the corner will!  Getting advice from a trainer that will suit your personal needs and goals goes a long way, and will serve you MUCH better than Googling it (trust me!).  When you find yourself in an environment that is geared specifically to meeting your goals, it’s a lot easier to find your path to meet them.  (Ok, I know that sounded like quite possibly the most obvious statement I’ve made in all my blogs, but sometimes even the most obvious things need to be said out loud.)

Even an expensive home gym doesn’t compare to the quality of the equipment you’ll find in a professional gym.  I love using an elliptical machine, but a cheap one is…well…cheap.  A good one makes all the difference in the world.  And weight machines are the same.

So I want to introduce you to Simcoe Health and Fitness.  Not only have I been a member here, but my wife goes here, and so do several friends of mine.  I can tell you from mine and others experience that this facility is top notch, and worth every penny.  They have a great selection of aerobic exercise machines, a whole section dedicated to cycling, they have top quality weight machines, plus a whole section for free weights.  This is a facility that really is suited for all types of people.  I’ve seen younger and older people in here.  Men and women.  Extremely fit, those not so much, and every stage in between.

Offering up a squash court is a nice touch (I’ve quickly learned that I suck at squash), and they have a wide range of classes including yoga, cycle classes, zumba fitness, strength classes, and more.  One of the things that really makes one gym stand out from another, though, is the people that work there.  I’ve been to gyms before where I feel really intimidated or out of place.  Or judged…man, I hate that.

Not here.  Friendly, helpful, encouraging…yeah those words sum up the trainers here!  Marcy is fantastic.

Ok, so if I’ve convinced you to check out the gym (and I hope I have!), you’ll find it at the corner of Kent street and Young street in Simcoe.  Click HERE for a map of it’s location.  For hours and more details about what they can offer you, find them at or on Facebook.

Do you go to a gym already?

Like every one of my blogs, I love getting feedback!  So leave me a comment in the comment section, and share me with your friends!  It makes me smile so big when I look up my stats and see how many people have shared it through email or facebook.  I say on a regular basis that I have the best clients in the world (and I truly believe that), I also think I have the best readers.  Thanks for taking a few minutes of your time to read what I love to write 🙂

  15. First of all I want to say superb blog! I had a
    quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.

    I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.

    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?

    • I’ll brainstorm 20-30 ideas at a time, and record them in evernote. I’ll also use evernote to add a blog idea whenever one strikes me…that way I’m not relying on “inspiration” when it comes time to write something. Inspiration is great, but it’s unreliable!
