We have been at the gym every day, since coming back from our Christmas vacation at the beach, and I see how many people are checking it out.
A member of the staff shows them around, and they sign up. They look around, and really don’t do much. I am not talking about the younger generation but those over 50. They do get one free session with a trainer, but most often don’t take it up for fear of being cornered into signing up for training sessions.
If I see them looking lost, I ask if I can help with anything. I will show them how to stretch, use light hand weights, and how to use the machines. This is how many of my ladies, that I have taught basic boxing training, started out.
I ask all of you gym rats to do the same. Give someone new to the gym a few minutes of your time, not only to welcome them, but to help them start their new life of getting fit.
Who will join me in this campaign? Let me know if you are willing to do so, and send me any links to your posts. I will gladly reblog them for you.
