Lose Weight In Newark, Ohio

Lose weight? Alright, what are you trying to sell us? A magic pill, see-food diet, potion, ab machine, what?

Don’t worry, I’m not selling anything here. I’m talking about dealing with a serious problem that we all know about, but fail to act on. I don’t care what the stats are. One trip to Wal-Mart and I know we’ve got  a problem. Oh yeah, I’m part of the problem myself, so don’t get defensive either.

You can find your own diet, and there are some diet centers in the area. I’ve lost it all before and I find them to be nonsense, but if they get you started on the right track, use them. The best thing about losing weight in Newark, Ohio is the vast facilities available to us. You know, that part of losing weight that nobody wants to talk about.

I’ll let the more shy among us in on a secret too. If you’re worried about the unsightly blubber in the gym, don’t be. With they epidemic proportion of overweight people, there are many there with the same problem. Many of the thin folks used to have the problem as well. You’re not there to impress anyone and nobody else is there to care what you look like or what you are doing.

First on the list is the Newark, Ohio YMCA.  It is a great facility overall. Everything I’ve ever wanted to lose weight is there with only a few exceptions. The pool and the indoor running track are the added extras no other facility in the area matches. The problem is that it’s a dumping ground for parents who don’t want to watch your children. It’s great they have a place to go, but they will hinder your ability to workout. Don’t bother asking the management to deal with them either. Just accept that this is a part of the Y, do your best to avoid them,  and get on with your chosen weight loss regimen. If you have a family, there is no more affordable facility than the YMCA.

The Advantage Club is by far the most athlete oriented of the facilities. The staff is very serious and the facilities are top-notch. If you want to pay the extra money for a no-nonsense workout facility this is it. Their staff has every type of training and class you could want to meet your needs. I highly recommend them.

The facilities in the area are great, but what is even better is the free outdoor activities! Newark, has many miles of trails in the park system. Dawes Arboretum has paved roads and wooded trails to enjoy. Lately, the weather has caused me to prefer the padded indoor track at the YMCA, but as soon as the weather breaks, it’s back to the great outdoors.

There are many complaints concerning Newark, Ohio that the average citizen can really do much about. Improving the quality of your life through exercise and maintaining your fitness however is all up to you. Everything is here, accessible, and affordable.
