Despicable Me is fun and entertaining – just like going to the gym. Love of gym can be hard to explain, so I thought I would use some of my favourite moments from Despicable Me to illustrate it. Going to my local GoodLife Fitness makes me smile like I did the first time I saw that movie.

When you walk into the gym after a long day at work and it feels just like coming home.

Gym life is so great – full of so many awesome people just like you; it’s like being a minion, with strength in numbers. Find your tribe of weirdos. It will change your (gym) life!
