Working out at Slimmers World Gym

                  Working out at Slimmers World Gym

                 While I am roaming around Festival Mall, I passed by the booth of Slimmers World. At first, I thought it was just a group session for those who want to be thin but when I saw their very catchy promo which is 1+1 month, I’ve already asked for some flyer for my mom and my friend. After I have read the flyer, it became clear to me that it was a gym and beauty center. I was very delighted that me and my mom went to Slimmers World Alabang branch to ask for the coverage of their promo in the gym wherein we were acccommodated by a consultant that toured us to the gym and its ladies’ comfort room. 

                           After that, we went back to her room to discuss what I  want to obtain from the gym so that they can prepare a gym routine for me and breakdowns the cost I would like to avail according to months. But because I just want to try the gym if I can weight gain, I availed the 1+1 month which is worth 2400Php coverage of use of all the gym’s equipments and machines. It also includes the aerobic classes. Their walk-in price is 500Php. It was good that there are lots of women working out in the gym so I don't have to be shy.
            
                    The next day, I went to Slimmers World to have my medical check-up and picture taking for membership ID. The receptionist asked me if I want to use the gym facilities at the same day but if I won’t she reminded me to bring my receipt as my proof to my next visit because I don’t have my membership ID yet. (It was very nice of her).

                           It was Thursday afternoon that I went to Slimmers World and a lot of people were working out. The receptionist called a personal trainer to assist me because it was my first day. The personal trainer taught me the rules, routines and how to use the machines. At my first day, I acquired two cardiovascular activities(treadmill and crosstrainer) and then proceeded to muscle building by lifting dumbbells, etc.

                            At the first three days, the trainer assisted me until I have memorized my workout program. There’s also this signing up for the use of treadmill, crosstrainer, aerobic class etc. except for muscle building equipments and the bikes. A maximum of 30 minutes per use of cardiovascular machines. The trainer also  instructed me to have a 3 minutes cool down at the treadmill and 15 minutes cool down using the cardiovascular machines after my muscle building routine.


                                   Now, I go to Slimmers World every morning because there are lots of people working out in the afternoon.
