The Uncommon Age Fitness Studio is a five-minute walk from my apartment (The first time I drove to it I found out rather sheepishly that I was in the car for only one minute). I have walked past it dozens of times and often wondered what it was like. It looks good from the outside. Recently I’ve gotten a bit desperate and feel that the only way to beat my constant, relentless fatigue is to concentrate on physical fitness, health, and sleep. I’m working with a sleep center on my problems with sleep apnea, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I need some external motivation to do better with physical fitness. So, I decided to try Uncommon Age.
I have now had two session with Jan, a personal trainer. I am very optimistic, one reason being that Jan and the owner Marty are optimistic and very friendly – easy to talk with. I like the workout room. Clean, uncluttered, and sunny with large windows on both sides. Yesterday I worked on a Pilates machines for the first time and loved it. Best-feeling workout machine I’ve ever tried. I look forward to my next session tomorrow.
I have an overall goal of feeling good and energetic again. I also want to lose a lot of weight (I don’t think I will mention how much. It’s too embarrassing.) and to be able to hike ten strenuous miles without becoming exhausted. Eventually I will move from private, one-on-one sessions to classes. I will post occasionally about how I’m doing.
Wish me luck although I hope I don’t need any. Wish me perseverance!
