The Shorty's Guide To Surviving The Gym

The Shorty's Guide To Surviving The Gym

Whenever I do my washing, the clothesline tells people that I’m always ready to dress for a funeral as long as it’s on casual Friday. It’s not like I have an aversion to colour, but my recent wardrobe choices seems to paint me in a deep shade of gothic. Two years ago, I started going to the gym because I couldn’t sleep past 5am, and it seemed like a logical use of my time. There’s a 24 hour gym ten minutes drive from my house, so while Whakatane slept, I was shaking my jiggle in the middle. 

Are you someone who signed up for the gym then went MIA? Here’s what I have learned about gym life...and how you can stay motivated and and actually use that membership.

#14 The Bird Walk

The Bird Walk is probably one of the best free activities in Whakatane, along with the Kohi Point Walk and the West End access to Otarawairere Bay. We locals find it fascinating when tourists flock here, but when you get out and enjoy the outdoors, it's clear to see why.
