Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
Haven't been in this neck of the woods for a while...need some more educated opinions on something.
Last year (as in last Uni year, before summer) i was doing weights and cardio to lose some weight and general fitness.
Nothing too drastic, half hour weights/half hour cardio 3+ times a week.
This year i've moved house to an apartment building that actually has a gym, so i dropped the membership to my old gym (which is now quite a long way off too).
The gym doesn't have any free weights, not even a Smith machine, but i does have some basic weight machines, so i figured it was worth the saved money since i wasn't too big on the free weights anyway.
Lately i've been finding myself being pretty damn bored tbh. I'll go down there and just find myself hitting the rowing machine until i'm beat. I don't know if it's the fact that i'm not paying for it or if it just doesn't inspire me, but i can't get motivated, and after all the holiday stuff and not keeping up with the gym for a while, it's starting to get ugly.
A friend is taking some classes and he suggested an MMA school in the area that does BJJ programms.
He says it's a good workout and pretty damn interesting to boot, so i'm considering it.
He's not a pure gym person so he can't comment on how it compares to a gym workout, which is why i'm here.
Anybody here with any experience on beginner BJJ courses? Is the workout good, how does it compare to a gym workout?
Is it worth it, or should i just try finding motivation for the gym?
I'll probably give it a test run anyway, but i was wondering if anybody had any insights on it.
