Today I took my first steps inside a gym (to actually use the equipment rather then the joining process or to have a look around) for a loooooooooooooooooong time. The last time I worked out in one was when I lived in London and I used to go to a Government run gym in Swiss Cottage, North London maybe 8 years ago or so! Blimey! Where do the years go?!

'The Lawyer' and I both became members of a gym company here aptly (and laughingly) called 'McFit'.
There are a few of them spread around Berlin, one being in Neukölln where I live which is not too close but close enough and 'The Lawyer' has one just two tram stops or a 15 minute walk from his front door. Waking up in the mood to go for a workout this morning we decided to go with the momentum whilst we actually had the willpower and off we
went through the snow and through the shiny double doors of the place whose slogan reads ''einfach gut aussehen'' (''simply look good''). A number of the people who were to be found inside didn't quite fit said slogan but that aside it was a successful visit. I tried out the bicycles whilst watching the TV to find out the latest news highlights and watch cute kids falling over laughing whilst watching a dog walk around?! I then went over the rowing machine on which I nearly killed
myself trying to chase down fish (the machine had a game installed on it where you row in order to catch as many fish as you on the screen within the 3.30minute time limit) and then I worked on my thighs (one of my main reasons for needing the gym!) on some crazy machine that looked like some sort of instrument of torture. In the main I enjoyed the time there even if 'The Lawyer' and I felt a bit silly going there as a couple (it did feel ridiculously modern and cheesy!). I'm looking forward to many more workouts and perhaps even a slighlt more toned body!!!
