Because of my ankle injury I had to lessen my mileage for this week. The good thing is, I have enrolled myself already to a gym so I could get my strenghtening sessions.
This morning was my first session with a gym instructor. If you enroll yourself at fitness first, then you get 2 free tickets for a one on one session with a gym instructor. Should you wish to avail their multiple sessions package (10 - 25 sessions), there is a fee that you have to pay. I've yet to decide if I'd be availing the multiple sessions package.
Before my appointment with the gym instructor, I did my warm up already. Well, not quite a warm up, but it was a short 5K run around Bonifacio High Street for 21minutes. After my run, I did a few chat with my Fort Striders buddies, signed up for one of this sunday's race and headed to Fitness First.
I met up with a fitness first instructor Bernie who mentored me during my first formal try of their gym equipments. We started by filling up a fitness form and by analyzing my body fat percentage. The average for my age and height should be from 14% - 20%. My body fat percentage was 16.1%, so I guess I'm normal. We did lightweight exercises with 15 reps of 2 sets each. I felt great after the workout and ill definitely be back for another workout.
