My bro-in-law and his wife and two kids stayed with us all of last week. They are moving to Europe soon, so they are kind of in between homes right now. We weren't sure how long they would be staying with us, so we added them to our gym membership. During the week, we went to the gym at least five times, so it was well worth the $55. They might come back and stay again in a few weeks.
The kids were able to do several different kinds of fun things at the gym: swimming, a kids' fitness class, rock wall climbing, going to the library, and playing in the child care room.
Having that many family members to coordinate definitely cut into my fitness routine, though! Even though we were at the gym more, I had less time to work out because of everyone going here and there. Also, the elliptical trainers (there are only 3 at our gym) were always taken when I did have time to work out, and they're my favorite. So, I treadmilled a bit and did the arc trainer a bit, but it is so much less fun to do those two machines! I find that I work up a much bigger sweat with the arc trainer, though!
This week, back to the gym 3x (at least).
