Fitness: Get back to the gym

I love to workout. Well, perhaps it would be more accurate to say that I love to have worked out, which I’ve done religiously for over a decade. So I was surprised a few weekends ago when I was climbing down a hill in Bandar Al Khiran and felt my legs shaking from the effort. When was the last time I’d been to the gym?

Between out of town guests, annual leave, and a busy schedule, a week of missed workouts had turned into months. I resolved to get back to the gym the very next week ... that was two weeks ago.

Even the healthy habits we enjoy are difficult to get back into after an extended break, and developing new routines can be a major challenge as well, but there is nothing like the imagined fresh start of a new year to incite us to act.

At Hi, we want to help. So this month we will be featuring special stories each week to give you new ideas and inspiration for ways to eat better and get moving with everything from lux fitness camps to dance classes (see the next page) to a side-by-side roundup of gym membership options. Happy New Year, Muscat, let’s kick-off 2016 right. [email protected]
