Gym Question


JustineM

Recommended Posts

JustineM

With the gyms starting to reopen in my area, I want to start going and working out again.  My question is, does anyone here have any experience with Anytime Fitness?  I'm pretty nervous to approach them with questions and I thought maybe I would see if someone has tried them before.  I know it will vary  somewhat from gym to gym, just wanted to see if I could get a general impression.

sorry - I can't tell you anything about them - but they are pretty well know and I would think they would be responsive to your needs

Well I spoke with the trainer/manager today. Asked if he had ever worked with a transgender client before. He said he hadn’t but it didn’t matter to him. So sounds good so far. I’m going to meet up with him next week to discuss my fitness and goals. 
 

Though getting started and all is gonna SUCK. Lol

I'd love to say that it won't be that bad but... depending on how long you've been inactive... yeah, kicking the rust off yourself really, really sucks. Worth it though. I've found my gym time to be very rewarding. I'm looking forward to when they open again.

 

Hugs!

@Jackie C. I haven’t been in a gym in nearly 2 years. Several injury remnants that I’m going to need to overcome. So I know it’s going to be rough to start.

That’s great you are going to the gym and that you are going as who you really are. I don’t go to the gym because I do enough working out at work. I recently picked up cycling which I find very enjoyable and a great stress reliever.

That's not TOO bad. When I first started, I hadn't been to the gym in... ever. ?

The last time I went to a gym is perhaps ten years. I do not exercise, you may call me lazy.

You transitioned way earlier than I did. You probably don't have to work as hard to get a backside you can be proud of.

That’s one of my goals. Though I will be happy if I can get enough to hold my pants up.

Yes. Always.

 

Well, not NOW, but when I needed to, pre-surgery.

 Anytime Fitness? LOL  I just went in and saw them almost two weeks ago. The gyms are open in Sydney now. I seems pretty cheap compared to some of the others.

Anytime fitness quoted me a thousand and forty dollars for a full years membership.

I know at Fernwood it would cost about Eighteen hundred for the year.

As for tucking I tuck all day everyday. Some times I even stay tucked of a night time when sleeping depends on discomfort.

With you well with your fitness goals.

Sweet Goddess! That’s insane! It’s only $38 here in the States.

What do you get for 38 dollars a week or a month or a year.

In Australia that is very cheap.

Another gym with the same kind of set up was about $1600.

What do you pay for a year over there.

Hi Justine 

You can't serious $38 for a year?

I know I am waiting until I get my tax check before joining.

Yeah, I pay $30 a month and a bit more for a personal trainer (because I'm clueless). The start-up fee was somewhere in the $70 range.

 

Our gyms open tomorrow and I'm looking forward to getting back into my routine.

 

Hugs!

      Thousands of U.S. trans people fly to Thailand for GCS surgeries every year. But Thailand's own trans folk are not well treated.   https://www.france24.com/en/live-news/20201028-thailand-s-first-transgender-mp-dismissed-from-parliament     Carolyn Marie

      oh my dear Jackie, I’m sure you realize by now I am completely shameless! I mean last weeks video is already over 15,000 views and climbing and all because I talked about dilation! I think I disappointed so many people keeping it clean! Then again I always make my videos as generically clean as possible because the possibility of young people in transition watching is always very real... I’m extremely fascinated by your new project, I would really like to know what you come up with, I’d like to see it, I might even be able to use it on the channel if you’re willing to come up with something! I’m always struggling to come up with something funny at the end of the video, maybe you could do something funny or help me tell a joke and I could be the voice actor?

      @ElizabethStar is that a laser cutter?  Cute ears.   @Emily michelle generally less is more but you do have to color correct to hide the blueish grey that can show through from any facial hair.  Blend blend blend! Using a foundation brush.  And top it all off with a setting powder.   hugs   willow

      @Ithani Keep your head up, hon. If there one thing I know for sure...change is always right around the corner. Take a deep breath and know that things will improve.   Before I let you go....Can I ask what you have done or are doing for yourself to combat this? Are you trying to handle his on your own? Do you have any real life local support or allies?   Susan R🌷

      Hello and welcome @Cristie Bauman. Nice to meet you. You’ve come to the right place for sure. I for one would love to read your story. I’m sure you have some very unique stories to share within your journey thus far and likely more coming soon. Like you, I knew I was a girl at a very young age (4y.o.). I was told that boys don’t act or dress like girls at that early age. It didn’t change who I was inside. I was 56 before I finally said enough is enough and started living my life for me. I’m happy to see you are doing the same. Good for you!   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      It’s very boring lol. The weather has been cold and raining so I can’t go outside either. I have been doing a bunch of cleaning around the house. Also I managed to pick out my thanksgiving outfit. I have also been working on my hair and makeup. I was quite happy, I use a bb cream instead of foundation. So I was putting way too much on apparently. And it bothered me on how it looked. So i tried to do it with hardly any and it turned out great.

      I wrote an update on another thread about genital electrolysis: https://www.transgenderpulse.com/forums/topic/81722-where-to-draw-the-line-for-genital-electrolysis/ . I did end up getting an erection at the beginning of my first session but the electrologist didn't react to it. For most of the session, I think it was in a partially erect stage (probably more flaccid than erect) for the rest of the visit. The second visit it only happened as I was taking my clothes off but it was going away by the time I laid on the table, and didn't really happen at the third (I've had three sessions so far), so it seems as I'm getting used to having electrolysis sessions while half undressed, erections are becoming less common. Although erections are caused by sexual excitement, for me they seem to be also caused anxiety related to sexuality or modesty.

      If you would ever like tips, I worked on voice training for months and now people who thought I was a girl will usually apologize or just look very shocked when I talk. It is all about where the sound is coming from, anyone can do it, you just have to be careful or you could hurt your vocal cords.   I have made posts including my voice trans-formation over the year, and it is pretty crazy, especially seeing as how at that time I was still trying to lower my voice. It was even higher before then, I just didn't notice it (or at least denied it).

      @Emily michelleHow is quarantine going? Are you able to keep mentally occupied?

      I am a 59 year-old, whose birth certificate has Male typed on it, but I've had my doubts about that since the age of 4 or 5.  I've spent a lifetime being a people pleaser and trying to live up to other people's expectations of what I should be.   While I am still alive and have my sanity, I feel it's time to be what I believe myself to be.   I want to learn from others who have been where I am, and hopefully find someone who would like to hear my story.  Gender counselors and Trans friendly doctors aren't common in my state, but we have an abundance of self-righteous religious fanatics who are quick to condemn the Trans crowd.

      Here is the latest, and greatest directive amended as of 26JUNE2020. 1341(2)_D_2018-05-23.pdf

      I did PRK when I was on active duty...one of the best decisions I ever made beside reclassing from 13B to 46Q. I wish you luck on the glasses. I did get to speak to Jilian Shipherd, the director of LGBT care at the VA. She actually seems to give a -crap- about people's care; I was impressed. I also have the latest version of the VA care directive if you want me to upload it.
