I'm with coach nancy on this one. Cardio can be done anywhere, but the gym has a large variety of strength training equipment. You're not going to be able to get a super huge amount done in week, but make it count. Circuit training!

I think if I were in your position, I would focus on a little on cardio and some on strength training, but with less than 2 weeks before your event, there may not be a lot of time to prepare for your event. But remember these events are about having fun and lots of laughs.

I have a free one-week pass to the gym that just opened (LA Fitness). I want to make the most of it (I'm unemployed so this is a one-shot deal). On March 9th my brother and I are doing a local Spartan Race (google it) and basically I want to be in the best shape possible. So my plan is to use the 1-week pass from March 1-7th.
What's the ideal way to make the most out of the pass so I can be the best I can be for the challenge on the 9th? 1 hour of cardio, 1 hour of weight training, 2 hours of each... ?
