Last year, for reasons now unknown, I challenged a colleague to a push-up competition. Adamant that it couldn’t be that hard, I didn’t do any training leading up to the big day. Unfortunately, halfway through the first push-up, I realized that I had overestimated my strength and that I couldn’t get anywhere near completing one. A few months ago, in an effort to ensure I exercised regularly and gained some strength, I joined Results Room. Chris set me up with a few programmes that were tailored to my level (pre push-up/pretty lazy) and were varied enough to keep me interested. What I like most about them is that I can get them done in my lunch hour and that I have a personal training session every Monday holding me accountable to completing my workouts. The gym is great- I never have to queue for machines and "rush hour" means there are only four other people training. I also really like the towel service as it means I have one less excuse for not exercising during the day.
Thanks to Chris’ help, I can now proudly complete a push-up (which I have demonstrated on numerous occasions - to my partner, parents and friends). As I build more strength, hopefully I’ll soon be at the point where I can successfully challenge more colleagues to push-up competitions.
