So I went and checked out the gym by my house that just opened up a couple months ago. It's a LA Fitness. I went in and they have the weight lifting equipment that I was using in physical therapy so I joined. They also set me up for a personal assessment tomorrow with a personal trainer. I'm really nervous about that.
I told her to set up the appointment with someone who won't try to pressure me to do anything I am not willing to do. I'll be bringing in my list of exercises that my physical therapist said were safe.
On one hand I want to cancel the appointment because I only trust my physical therapist at this point since she's a spine specialist. On the other hand this person is going to show me how to use the equipment and I'll just say what I am willing to try and what I'm not. It'll be fine I just will be annoyed if they try to push me. It's just a one time thing for some reason they want people to work with a trainer the first time they go so they can show them the equipment which would be good.
The place is just a couple blocks from my house so I'm excited to go. It's been a few weeks since I was released from physical therapy and I have been putting off going to the gym out of fear.
