Who are the people that visit the gyms each day?

Lynn Benson - Benson Products

I have been a physical education teacher for the past several years at a public school and I was "shared" with the private schools in the area as well.  I tried to get all of the students to participate at their comfort level.  Of course some were more comfortable in the gym than others.  These young people were anywhere from almost 5 years old to 18 years old. They were there because their schedule said P.E. class was at a certain time.  The class went to the gym, so they went along.  Some might have dreaded this while most others looked forward to P.E.class all week.

Now I have retired.  I still go to the gym.  I choose to go because it is good for me.  I studied about all of the benefits and I have believed what I have tried to teach abut physical activity and healthful choices in life style.  I know I feel and function better as a result of regular exercise.  I also walk, ride a bike, swim and ski for exercise and for fun.

I have been amazed at the people who walk through the doors into the gym on a regular basis. They are so many and so diverse.  Part of my blog will be about individuals who will share their stories with me.  I want to discover what drives them and maybe this will help others who are reluctant start.
