Fitness First Ayala Center, Cebu City

For the past few months my mental and physical energy was trying really hard to adjust to this new-found state of busyness so when Intrams week came (meaning no classes) I immediately decided to give fitness first a try since it was a free pass after all, I have nothing to lose but I have a whole of week DE-stressing to gain As what I've observed, they were really nice to me, the Manager named "Shiela" discussed to me their rates and that they have a 5 months/ 12 months/ 18 months commitment in Fitness First. I really enjoyed my training there.

Their locker area. 

They showcase  first-class facilities which I really enjoyed during my training there and they also have locker rooms, shower rooms complete with shampoo and soap, sauna, hair blowers, free coffee and tea (four red fruit, peppermint tea) and everything is at your disposal.

Everything that you could ever look for in a gym is all there. 

Ms. Shiela introduced me to my Personal Trainer, Rey and he assisted me throughout the whole duration of my workout. First we did some weighing in, some cardio workouts and some stretching exercises. The stretching exercises really felt so good and I heard my bones started cracking (I feel so old) The only sad part that day was that the Body Jam workout (which I was really looking forward to) got canceled because the instructor didn't show up for some unknown reason.

I love their stretching exercises, you'll feel so relieved from stress afterwards, I highly recommend it.

If you're officially a member, you also get the opportunity to borrow movies as displayed above.

Locker rooms with hair-blowers in an air conditioned area, can you say convenience or what.

It was my first time to try sauna, I mean I've tried so many first today. My first official gym workout, first sauna, first having a personal trainer. It's good to try something new every now and then for a change of routine. 

This is the resistance training area with their small dumbbells and and weights for the big boys. lols and on my second day, my personal trainer gave me some cardio workouts and some resistance (weights) training.

The lounge area, when you feel too tired and you just want to relax (Gee, I'm feeling tired and I want to relax) you can just lounge in their comfortable chairs and enjoy free coffee and tea.

If I were to rate their gym facility and fitness instructor, I'd give them a (rating of 9.5/10) I really enjoyed my training at their gym but of course, they're not perfect, no one is and there is always a room for improvement in any aspect of our life, work, company. They do have some glitches like the fact that they get too irritating when they "kulit" you to become a member already, It was still my second day there and the manager already let me sign their membership form (assuming much?!) and she even asked for my credit card which I did not give of course. I'm not that stupid, Thank God for giving me an instinct and a gut feeling that there's something wrong here. She told me that as soon as I'm done with my workout I'll just call her because she would get the details of my credit card. No offense, but she somewhat wreaked of desperation trying to get my supplementary credit card no. After that, I got turned off to become a member I know it's part of their marketing strategy but there style seems a bit untrustworthy.

It's good to be shrewd and wise sometimes and the best place to find wisdom? God is the answer. If you have God, then you've found wisdom and cleverness.

For now, I don't think I'm ready to be hitting the gym officially. I might end up getting lazy going to they gym after a few months and think about the bills my mum has to pay. I'll just settle doing aerobics at home in our DVD, at least I won't have to travel and I can get fit and healthy within the comforts of our home. It gives me a sense of contentment especially when I get to enjoy things at a very less expense, talk about the amount of  satisfaction I get because of the rate I paid (or not paid) for it is greatest, besides I'm a very cheap person and I want to be a minimalist and to try to live a simple life, and paying the monthly dues to the gym is already a staple in my budget.
