This is my fitness equipment. Using it should be the very forth thing to do each and every day. I should do it because in the last two years, with two jobs and no free time, I put on a lot of weight. And I should do it because my cholesterol level is higher than it should be and aerobic exercise is the best and quickest way to lower it. But I don’t do it almost at all, because I still have two jobs (three, if you consider the blogging activity separate from photography) and no free-time. But by the end of February I’ll be over with the scientific career, so I’ll have no excuses anymore for not training. These are the tools that will take fat, unhealthy Luca and make it into slim, innerly healthy Luca.
So, this is my fitness equipment. What does it tell about me?
If you are into jogging and fitness, it will tell you that I do (or used to do) jogging (the whole Nike+ equipment), and then I bought an elliptic trainer, that I’m not shy to exercise in front of a lot of people (I do it on the terrace), that I like to listen to music while I’m running (the iPod nano), and that I need to perform aerobic workout (the heart rate monitor).
Without my fitness equipment, I would remain what I’m becoming, a sloppy, fat, high-cholesterol, un-fit guy who spends most of his days in front of a laptop. I don’t want to be like that. And these tools are my way out.
