Well, the beginning of the year started pretty poorly, with minimal training for the first third (only 22 miles in January and nothing then until April) – not a good start by anyone’s standards. So this has meant my goal has become somewhat harder with a considerably shorter time frame to achieve it in.

The induction lasted about 45 minutes and after we’d been introduced to all the machines of torture, it was time to get stuck in and get a feel for the various pieces of equipment and see how I intend to use them. For me, this first session was to take a look at what machines can help me focus on the areas I want to target – specifically: Stomach, lower back, arms & shoulders. I’m not interested in trying to become the next Arnold Schwarzenegger, but to tone the parts of the body that cycling alone can’t really help with. This is a means to an end, a way to tighten the stomach and combined with my diet, and getting back out on the bike to keep the cardiovascular levels up, improve body shape & BMI.
