Getting back into a workout program

I started gymnastic lessons when I was just three years old.

I showed a natural aptitude for it and loved it. As I got older, I started spending more and more time at the gym. By the time I was seven years old, I had been asked to join the competitive team. All throughout middle school and high school, I devoted hours to working out at the gym. I had to work very hard to achieve new and more difficult skills. I was kept in peak condition from constant training. I never needed to worry about what I ate. I continued pursuing gymnastics in college. We competed all over the country. Flexibility, strength, balance and stamina were especially important. When I graduated and entered the workforce, it was a huge change for me. I no longer had the opportunity to hang out at the gym. I was suddenly working overtime in order to earn a promotion. I was responsible for rent, insurance, groceries and all sorts of stuff. My lifestyle was hectic, stressful and very sedentary. I gained weight, suffered a variety of aches and pains and started feeling depressed. I realized that I needed to start working out again. I started making the effort to set my alarm earlier in the morning and get in an hour of exercise prior to heading to work. I immediately started to feel healthier and happier. Although I no longer compete, I still use a gymnastic style workout. I practice the challenging maneuvers and enjoying improving my skills. It’s an excellent way to burn calories, maintain strength and target a lot of different muscles.
