My father once told me that the most important thing in life is your health. I absolutely agree with him. If you don’t take care of your body, you will eventually pay for it. That’s a fact.
I am 33 years old and I realize that I can greatly reduce my chances of developing health problems that may occur as I get older by doing regular exercise. I am amazed when I see my father who is over 70 years old, still lifting weights, using a rowing machine and doing sit-ups. He is still strong, his mind is sharp, he’s in great shape and doesn’t have any health problems. If you met him you’d never think he’s over 70. He also keeps a healthy diet. I definately would like to be like him when I’m his age.
Right now I am a member at a fitness club called TIPNESS http://www.tipness.co.jp/ which is conveniently located near my school, Smith’s Tsukaguchi School http://www.smithweb.co.jp/school/tsukaguchi.shtml . I mostly do weight training, normally about 4 times a week for about 30 minutes each time. At the Tsukaguchi branch where I am a member, they close at 11pm Monday’s through Fridays, 10pm on Saturdays and 8pm on Sundays and open early in the mornings. This is very convenient with my schedule. I prefer training at night so I often go late at night after work before they close. Training feels great after a day of work keeps me strong and healthy. I highly recommend it.
