If you are active on any social media platform it is impossible to avoid the current fitness frenzy. Hashtags like #beastmode, #fitnessislife or #workhard paired with motivational quotes like “pain is weakness leaving the body” are all over the place. And sure, we all would love to have that perfect instagram body, but we also love the good life and the occasional pizza.
Now that my well hidden muscles almost recovered from my last workout at the Balboa Garage over a year ago (–> Read the blog post) a lot has changed. While Balboa has become a brand and opened a brand-new gym I just got lazy and apparently also forgetful. How could I otherwise accept another invite for a workout?
Do you know how growing up is a trap? Well, the same applies to working out. They lure you with promises of perfect bodies and a better life and you end up being tortured in a garage…at least they show some humanity because you are not forced to listen to Britney.
