Exercise… it's just bad…

Well, since I'm incapable of finding a job (bad restaurants and petrol station wont even call me back for an interview), and I can only spend a certain amount of my time playing music, I decided to get fit this summer… Colchester leisure centre is very serious about their gym though, you have to do a 5 session starter course to join, which involves 2 personal trainer sessions, which are hardcore…

Yesterday was my second personal trainer session and made the horrific mistake of saying I didn't really know what I wanted to work on. This apparently angered the beast trainer woman, who decided I should be punished with circuit training. Well I think I was doing pretty well, got through the first two circuits fairly comfortably (well, without crying or wanting to kill anything larger than a moth) but I knew I was in trouble at the start of the third circuit, and no matter how many times the evil woman said "not too long to go now" I knew either me or the cross trainer was going down, and of course, it was me. With just a minute left before I could try and scam a few seconds of rest between exercises, I suddenly realised my stomach was not happy that I was doing all this work, and was going to express its disappointment by sending my lunch up. Cue me having to jump off the sadistic cross trainer, walk briskly to the fire door holding back the wretches and just about getting outside before throwing up, interestingly mainly through my nose…

Apparently that was a good place to end the session, and the woman was kind enough to say she may have been pushing me a bit hard, but it's times like this that remind me why I'm not much of a gym person. Can exercise really be all that beneficial if it can cause vomiting, muscle strains, damaged ligaments, etc? Seems like at best it's only on a par with drinking heavily and eating kebabs…
