Would you trust this 'Health' Club's tailor made regime?

Asked by LornaLove (9926points) November 29th, 2013

Today was my first day at the new gym I started. I am 51 and haven’t worked out for years. I was quite appalled to see this fully fitted health club’s eating area. Instead of smoothies, health shakes, gluten free breads, eggs, lean protein and such they serve: macaroni cheese with full fat cheese and pasta, jacket potatoes laden with fat. Regular sandwiches, panini and the only fruit in sight was orange juice. (Which was on the menu along with coffee and tea). The health bars were coated in chocolate and around 22% fat. Plus, they served booze? O.o

My workout consists of running uphill and then walking (on a cross trainer). I felt like I was going to faint. I really am super unfit. I feel pretty disgusted with the whole set up. What do you expect health club’s to serve up in their restaurant? How did you start your work-out after a long period of doing not much?
