I don’t know about you, but for me it is very important that I can de-stress and relax, especially after a long and stressful week. Just sitting back and watching TV on the other hand is not my idea of how I can get back some of the energy I feel I lost. I am one of those guys who needs to do something, like walking or pursuing a hobby that can me help relax.
This is when I got interested to check into fitness studios and how they can help me with “actively” relaxing. Fortunately, some of the gyms here in East London offer courses like Yoga, martial arts or Pilates. Yoga isn’t really “my thang” and neither is Pilates, so I signed up for a Judo class at a gym here in Hackney.
I have to say that it wasn’t exactly easy to find a good gym in Hackney where they also had Judo classes, it took me a while until I found a gym I liked here in my area.
How about you? What do you do when you want to de-stress and want to keep your mind of things in your free time? Do you like to simply relax or are you like me and want something more exciting?
