Got to thinking the other day - The great thing about Tai Chi, Chi Kung and Yoga for that matter is once you have a few basic moves you can practice daily at home and I was talking about this with a friend who also works out at the gym quite a lot.
I said that personally I just don't see the point - if I run, cycle or row for twenty minutes I sure as hell want to be somewhere, not just sitting in the same place, smelling like a polecat, surrounded by leotards and Lycra and ears ringing from the 'go for it' music and eyes tired of tv screens. Why not just go for a run or cycle outdoors - especially in the area we live where there are lots of good woodland walks and cycle rides - we even have places where you can take out your canoe - and after this you have lungs full of fresh air - It makes sense to me.
I have never been one for gyms - I have tried it and didn't like it (for the above reasons) - and this blog is obviously my own, personal point of view - there are lots of people out there who really enjoy their gym work - i'm just not one of 'em i'm afraid!!!.
