It’s sometimes easier to put off until tomorrow what you should really be doing today. When it comes to the gym, suddenly you become an expert in all things delay. Worst still many of you will simply quit – sometimes without ever properly starting! Even if you have the benefit of a no-contract gym membership and won’t suffer financially by quitting too soon, you will be losing out. Your health could suffer, your fitness will drop off and your lifestyle will be less enjoyable as a result.

The temptation to quit will always be there. To deal with this problem, and to ensure that you have the best possible chance to both start the gym and thereafter keep attending, this article gives you the help and advice you’ll need to build the determination to succeed. So before you’re tempted, read on to see just how to stick at it!

 

It’s A Start

You have to remember that everybody has started at some point and that they have all had their first day at the gym.

Powerzone Fitness: The Best Gym in New Hampshire

Monday, July 11th, 2011

I finally joined a gym that’s worth blogging about. It is called Powerzone Fitness and it’s located in Hooksett, NH.

Check out their website here: Powerzone Fitness and their Yahoo Local page with a 5 star rating and 4 glorious reviews here: Powerzone in Hooksett, NH

Why is Powerzone Fitness the best gym in NH?

  • It is open 24×7. You get in after hours with an access card.
  • No one is ever there. Turn the lights and fans on, crank your own music on the radio.
  • No crazy meat heads taking up all the machines. It’s like the opposite of Gold’s Gym in Manchester, NH. If you ever go there you’ll know what I mean.
  • It is owned by a former powerlifter. That means you can deadlift, lift over your head, and grunt without getting in trouble.
  • They supply the chalk. Like using chalk when you deadlift or do Olympic lifts? They have a box of chalk beside the power rack.
  • The have a power rack. They have a smith machine too, but they only use it for shrugs.
  • Dumbbells up to 120 lbs. Not bad.
  • They have a reverse hyper machine! It’s old, but it works.
  • Training at Powerzone is like working out in your own personal basement gym, except they actually have all the equipment you could need.
