Fitness gyms are everywhere. The competition is everywhere. Being able to separate your gym from that competition is a hard thing to do. However, it is very possible as shown by the owner of Mei Fitness.
I first started going to the Southport location, the beginning of this past summer. I had been at LA Fitness for several months and before that I was at the old golds gym off of Washington Street. Both gyms were great although the drive was too long for golds and it was time to move on from LA Fitness. I didn’t know what gym I would move to although I kept hearing about this one gym that was open 24/7 and called Me? I had literally thought thats how it was spelled! (ha)
I wasn’t necessarily comfortable with moving fitness centers. I knew that meant I would have to learn new equipment, the lay of the land and so on. After a week of going back and forth about it and being annoyed of not working out, I bit the bullet. In one of my later posts I talked about how certain things that motivate me just eat at me until it bothers me enough to get to it. Let’s just say I was fed up and needed to get back to building my physique.
I purchased my membership online and decided if I wasn’t going back to LA Fitness I need to (man up) and try out a new spot.
I was blown out of the water when I went into Mei for the first time. The staff were all so kind and I was genuinely amazed at how much they had to offer. I thoroughly enjoyed the fact that the gym wasn’t too busy mid day and even when it was busy it wasn’t craziness everywhere. From that first day I knew I made the right choice of switching up my gym location.
Fitness is a lifestyle and being able to enjoy that lifestyle you have to be in a place you are most comfortable in. Mei Fitness is were I have felt the most comfortable and welcomed.
