Having smoked for over 30 years though, my pulmonary functions were only 15% of the average man my age. Any cardio you do will help clear the smoke, tar and nicotine from your system and for a time will also give you a small rush from the residue in your lungs. If you're a social guy, I'd recommend the local Nautilus as their traffic will probably be a bit more than Anytime. If you like solo work, Anytime is probably your best bet. Regardless, good luck with sustaining being smoke-free, losing what you want to lose, gaining what you want to gain and having fun doing it all.
Appreciate that man...as of 9:28 pm tonight, that was 24 hours without a single cigarette....it was little tough, but not as bad as I had expected. The hardest parts were like driving to work, and right after I finished lunch. Hard habits to break.
Nautilus gave me a free week, to see if I like it, and I went by after work today, ran on the treadmills, did a little light weights......and basically, felt sort of like dying, LOL. But, I did enjoy it. Immensely, actually. I'm pretty damn certain that at the first of the month I'm going to go up there and sign up for at least 6 months.
In your opinion, was the trainer worth it. I had considered that, because, like everyone's stated in this thread, going and doing the work will be the hardest part; that being said, if I can get into a schedule/routine, it will be much better for me because then it'll be a daily thing. It won't be something I dread at that point, it'll just be another part of the day. And I had the idea that getting a trainer for a short time was possibly a good way to set myself up like that.
What do yall think?
Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.
