Gym rats

terrybballHey everyone! Let’s see. Haven’t been up to much lately. Chores around the house, errands around town, playing World of Warcraft, watching television. The second season of True Blood finished up last Sunday night. Great season, better than the first, although the finale had yet another cliff-hanger which is totally annoying. Great show if anyone is on the fence about watching it. I love it. So much better than Twilight.

Oh, we joined a gym. It’s this totally cool place called the Opelika Sportsplex and Aquatics Center – it’s such an amazing gym. Not only does it have all the usual gym stuff like equipment and machines, but it has an indoor pool, indoor raquetball courts, an indoor running/walking track, a gym that you can play basketball in, classes like Body Pump, Zumba, yoga, etc – but it also has a rec center that has classes like ballroom dancing, scrapbooking, cooking, etc. How fun is that? We just joined and last night was our first night there. Above is a photo of Terry that I took after our main workout. We were goofing around shooting hoops in the gym part of it. So cool! Above his head you can actually see part of the indoor walking track where part of goes aroud the upper perimeter of the gym. Cool, huh?

Here’s a photo of the outside of th place. It’s totally swank. Now we just have to keep motivated about going three times a week!

  8. I went yesterday for the first time. It is so nice! I knew so many people there! I will be going in the mornings when the crowd is smaller….and older!! But, I will go with the hubby at night and on weekends some , too! I was really into physical fitness until the youngest boy was born. So now I have 13 years of laziness to overcome! I think I am going to start with yoga and the cardio machines then build up to more strenuous classes!

  9. Hi! That’s a nice Gym! But, unfortunately, not even a nice gym will get me to go there. 😦 I am waaaay to lazy. Good luck with the goal you’ve set!
