The Secret Rooms Upstairs - Discovered


Wednesday, January 16, 2013

I've been a member of my health club for over two years, and I'm embarrassed to say that I never went to the upstairs level until yesterday. Downstairs are the indoor pool, outdoor pool (in the summers), as well as the locker rooms, and those are really the only areas I've been using. There are fitness and weight rooms as well, but I've only looked at them, not used them.
I love to swim, but yesterday, it was terribly cold outside, so I didn't want to go into the cold with damp hair afterwards. Around 8:30 p.m. I got hungry and bored, and so I ate an apple and then went to the club. I put on my new exercise pants I got at Ross for $10, plus an old T-Shirt, and then I climbed up the stairs for the first time.
The upstairs is very nice! Treadmills and stationary bikes in several separate rooms so the area is broken up a bit, plus a nice walking track around the whole thing. I was quite surprised to find that there are more weight machines upstairs. I'll try those once I have built up some endurance.
Anyway, I got on a stationary bike. Haven't worked out in 2 weeks because I was sick, so the first 5 to 10 minutes were tough, but with breaks, I was able to do 20 minutes. It was actually enjoyable, especially since the club plays really good classic rock.
I think we need a SP trophy for trying something new.

    I'm envious!!! I live in a big town that pretends to be a city, so there are no nice gyms near home - the only one has old machines and it's pretty expensive. I haven't swum for two years and a half, I miss it sooo much I'm seriously thinking of buying a plastic pool for children, haha.

    I loved your blog! You do inspire me to be a bit more daring. I like the familiar things, and keep forgetting that at some point they were unfamiliar to me, too.

emoticon You take home the trophy!

    What a good idea - a sparktrophy for trying something new! Until then, here:

You certainly deserve one!
I read a great comment about gyms not long ago. It said, "you're worried if others are watching you, but the truth is, they aren't. They're too busy worrying if others are watching them." lol.
