For those who have got bored with the daily gym rou­tine and are look­ing for some real power work­out, visit the En­gine Room at Hori­zon Fit­ness.

Though I have been a mem­ber of sev­eral gyms and fit­ness cen­tres in the past, when it comes to do­ing se­ri­ous work­out and ex­er­cis­ing I need con­stant coax­ing to do things ef­fec­tively and ef­fi­ciently.

Years back as a mem­ber of the Hori­zon Fit­ness, I tried every­thing they had to of­fer; from the plain good old gym to their other ex­er­cise regimes, but as I didn’t opt for a per­sonal trainer I ended up wast­ing time.

Later at the aer­o­bics class, which was quite fun as they had a dif­fer­ent work­out ses­sion ev­ery day, I could boost my stamina. That’s when I re­alised that it was prob­a­bly time to up my game and so I de­cided to join the En­gine Room.

If the name sounds in­tim­i­dat­ing, then walk in­side it to get a feel. With the bold coloured walls, the fancy work­out equip­ment, and the sur­round­ing cage, it doesn’t quite look like any of the other work­out rooms that we nor­mally see.

In­side the room you will find few huge tyres, ropes, weight balls, among many other things. Ini­tially I had thought not to ven­ture into that room ever, but later I de­cided to give it a try.

The En­gine Room is the most no-non­sense place in the gym. Peo­ple who are in­side it mean busi­ness. There is no time to waste, pro­cras­ti­nate, or while away. The one thing that makes the En­gine Room ideal for fruit­ful work­out is that there is not a mo­ment when you’re not mov­ing. And that is the fun­da­men­tal prin­ci­pal of this room — con­stant move­ment.

You get in­side this room with a lot of en­ergy, will power, and ded­i­ca­tion and come out feel­ing ex­tremely proud and supremely con­fi­dent by what you have done and achieved in just 30 min­utes.

The high in­ten­sity work­out in­cludes push­ing, pulling, twist­ing, lift­ing, and bend­ing with the trainer whose stern voice will not let you stop. You get the best kind of car­dio work­out with the best kind of re­sults that can be mea­sured by the in­struc­tor. The heart rate of each per­son who has en­tered this room can be mon­i­tored by the in­struc­tor on the TV screen and that is how they mea­sure how much ef­fort you have put in.

How­ever, it is the feel­ing after the whole work­out that will make you feel that ev­ery sec­ond in that dread­ful room was to­tally worth it — both in terms of the long term re­sult as well as the buzz that you feel soon after you come out of the room.
