Heading to Greens Gym tonight to join (especially as the joining fee is currently being waived). I get a discounted rate through my company (which is very nice of them). Looks like I’ll soon be torturing myself on various impliments referred to as, I believe, exercise machines. Ohhh the joys… Bit of late night shopping…
