After the holidays, I have to deal with hula-hoops of fat around my non-existent waist.
Although I live a few minutes away from the Marikina Sports Complex, I have to ride a jeepney and pass by the city jail. It was not a very heartening sight although there was nothing filthy or scary with the place. It was just my imagination running wild.
I do have another choice though, just around the corner is Maic's Boxing and Fitness Gym. It's more expensive but for someone with a big fitness goal, money spent meant I would have more than the weight loss to keep me going, if I paid for it I must get my money's worth.
Maic's Gym has two floors.
On the first floor you can find the Cardio Area with around 20 machines ranging from elliptical trainers, stationary bikes, steppers and treadmills.
Also on the first floor is the Weights Area where relatively advanced weight machines can be found. From my estimate, there are 15 stations plus the free weights area where you can pump iron all day.
Upstairs is the dance/aero/mixed martial arts studio and the boxing ring.
You can also find the toilet and the shower rooms for male and female on the second floor.
You can get down from the second floor to the garden on the first floor via stairs clung to the side of the building. At the gym garden you can load on carbs at the snack bar.
There's water, boxing gloves rental, free wifi and good workout music blaring from the speakers.

On the whole, the gym looks like a humbler version of Slimmer's World but since most of the people there know each other it feels like a community.
