Dunnyboo,

That would be real convenient since I live on one side of town and work on the other. It doesn't look like all of them have walking tracks.

hey there Jim! I was out walking in this weather tonight...this is the weather I love to walk in! I went hiking this weekend in Cherokee Park-you should try hiking too! The link I sent you to the community centers has a list on the left hand side of all the public community centers. I think (could be wrong) if you belong to one you can use any of them. That would be convenient, say, if you live in one area of town and work in another.

I usually walk on the track at Seneca Park during the summer, but didn't make it much this year because of a foot problem. I was going to try and make it tonight but by the time I got out of work it was already in the 50's, which is a little chilly. I'm going to check on the website you suggested.

hello again! I was just reading Kentuckiana Health and Fitness online. I thought of you when I came across the South Louisville Community Center. They have an indoor walking track as well as gym equipment. I'm not sure the cost but it is run by the city and if there is any cost it's probably minimal. And try to get outside even in the cold and dark! I do sometimes and I actaully enjoy it for a change (provided you live in a neighborhood with sidewalks!)
Here is the link I found

The downtown YMCA has an indoor track. I've been told it's a nice one. The Urban Fitness gyms' mentioned are good, too. I'm a member and use the tracks regularly.

I believe Southeast Chritian Church has some kind of outreach to the community regarding use of their gym facilities and they have a really nice indoor track - worth checking into...We got a really good deal on our treadmill around this time of year @ Sears a couple years ago. Also, since the retailers are desperate to make their sales goals this year, I bet you can find a good deal if you watch the sale ads in the paper. In addition, you might check out used -there was a used fitness equipment store in the Kroger shopping center on Hubbards Lane in St. Matthews, but not sure if it still exists and also watch the classified ads or garage sales (sometimes people end up using their equipment as clothes hangers and just want to get rid of it so you could end up with a really sweet deal. Hope this helps and good luck!

Thanks for the info. Shively Baptist is near my house but the hours won't work for me. I use to walk at Beechland Baptist on Greenwood Road with a lady that belonged there but she doesn't walk anymore. I was trying to avoid joining a gym. Purchasing a treadmill maybe my best option. Any suggestions on a treadmill?

I know the Shelbyville Road and Taylorsville Road Urban Active locations have one, but you have to be a member to use them, and it's definitely not cheap. I'm a member though, and I have to say the tracks are nice, if you're looking to join a gym.

The Shively Baptist Church has one...I think from 8am to noon daily. It's on Crums Lane, if that's of any help. I don't know if any of the YMCA branches do...you might check it out.

Where's a nice indoor walking track to stay motivated and on the diet since it's dark at 6:00 now? I've tried the mall but it gets boring and crowded. If I can't find one I guess I'll need to purchase a treadmill.
