OK, so I'm thinking of stopping my gym membership. I hardly ever used the gym pre-lockdown and now that they have opened up I have been once since they opened last Monday. I don't plan another visit until at least Wednesday.
I bought an elliptical just prior to lockdown which I enjoy using [as it comes with a subscription to iFit, so I can pretend I'm running up a mountain when I'm indoors!] and I'm on it a couple of times a week as a stress-free run, as I seem to be very susceptible to injury these days and am often in recovery mode.
In terms of strength training, I currently do pilates, press ups and planks and generally body weight exercises, so don't really feel the need to go to the gym. BUT should I really bite the bullet and just go to the gym and maybe sell the elliptical, OR do I quit the gym and use the elliptical and body weight exercises as that's actually 'enough'?
I'm not competitive now, and never really was, so I don't need to be super-strong, but I keep being told that as I'm menopausal I need to do strength training. Do I NEED to do that in a gym?
Too many questions, but opinions please?
