In Panic Mode

Sunday, February 27, 2011

This past Friday, the manager of my facility announced that it will be closing the last week of March. That gives me about a month to find a new gym!

The two nearest Curves are 3 and 4 miles away, respectively. (The one in my town is a mile away and I have gotten very accustomed to walking there.)

After being a member for nearly eight years, I feel like a part of my family is moving to the other side of the country.

Given the current price of gas I don't want to do any more driving than necessary, so I am debating trying to develop my own program before contacting any of my local facilities. I would consider riding my bike to the nearest gym -- once I learn to ride it!

I have the luxury of living near a fairly large county park, so I would be as happy walking the track (or working with a trainer to pick up running or jogging).

What say you, Sparkers? What options should I explore?

A) Join another gym (and hire a bike coach)
B) Work out my own program between walking and DVDs
C) Work out my own program between walking and hiring a trainer
D) Other

    You know you best, B. Have the other friends of yours at the facility that's closing indicated where they are heading? Perhaps you could all end up at the same place again?

    Be careful in that park. There's some riff-raff lingering. LOL
