I person I know from work has opened a Crossfit gym/training center in my town. The business totally took off where they had to expand and they made it 24/7 over the process of about 2 years. I have heard nothing but good things coming from my other friends who have been doing it, guys who are really into P90x etc... Also, I found out that my workplace offers local gift certificates as part of its wellness program and the Crossfit membership is covered by it so on top of being reasonably priced to start, I get a nice discount.
I stopped in for a look and like what I see. It is very inexpensive compared to working with a personal trainer and it looke like what I am needing.
I can no longer justify the cost of a trainer ( i have been without a trainer since August) but I need the structure as well as some fellowship. I think this is going to work.
I am going to an orientation session this Thursday for a free workout.
The best part of all is that it is right on the way to and from work. I pass it everyday and it is 24/7 access much like any other 24/7 gym. I have a pretty good feeling about this. The also offer classes as well for really reasonable.
This winter is going to basically a time to really knuckle down and lose a substantial amount of weight and pursue all around fitness so I can be in a position TO train for a TRI or another marathon.
I think opportunity has presented itself and I'm ready.
