Well, over the weekend, I took the plunge and signed-up for a membership at the local council run fitness centres.

This is not my first gym membership by a long way, but at the moment it’s a very good deal – £28 per month gets me access to use any of the Cardiff Council Leisure centers, including the Gym and Pool at every site, but also other facilities too – now so far, I’ve only tried the 2 facilities nearest to home and work, but I already have a preference – and for the money, the gyms are fairly well equipped – some of the equipment isn’t the newest, but it seems well maintained.

Now all I have to do to get my money’s worth is get down there 2 or 3 times every week. Motivation is gonna be the hard part.
