I go to gym 3x per week for going on 4 years now. I have a mental health case manager and she suggested that we should do this, it has given my life purpose and something to look forward to. One of the best decisions I have ever made. I had gained some weight and was up for working on Getting that situation in check. It works perfect for us. I am usually her motivation for going. I'm extremely blessed!
