Oh Gymmy, I Heart You!

Folks, I'm in love! Never thought I'd say this, but I LOVE MY GYM!!! Now, I know you're thinking, "She just started Thursday, it's only puppy love" but no, really this is the real thing, I swear!!!
Since Thursday, I've spent 6 hours wandering the wonderland and testing out various options and positions and durations. Man alive, I never have to wait for my pleasure! You said you wanted a treadmill? Well right here it is - no standing around waiting. Feel like working out in a crowd and maybe watching the eye candy? - look no further than the main room. More in the mood for a secluded solo work out? Come right way this to one of the smaller, more intimate work out spaces, conveniently labeled cardio, strength or stretching. How about basketball? Well there's the front court and the back court! What about swimming you ask? What temperature pool would you prefer? There's the warm pool set at a lovely 92 degrees fahrenheit as well as the cool pool set at 72 degrees fahrenheit. Oh you want depth? Look no further than the 12ft deep pool!
Are you more of a studier? There's a class here for ya! The entire Les Miller series, yoga, tai chi, Pilates, martial arts, or Parisi speed training and 6 different water aerobics classes to choose from.
There's an awesome kidszone where your baby is safe to play with state registered childcare workers. They have they're own mini basketball court, climbing wall, ball pit/tunnel/rope climbing thingy, hula hoops etc. They have arts and crafts classes for the kiddos as well as a lego and train table.
Need some food or beverage, hit the amazing café! Are your muscles sore from the kickass class you took yesterday, come in for a sit in the sauna. Oh you don't care for dry heat, then please take advantage of the steam room. Prefer your relaxation to be even more wet? Take a spin in the whirlpool! Oh shoot, you got so caught up in watching that show on the personal TV connected to your elliptical that you lost track of time and REALLY need that manicure? Well there's a day spa that can take care of that for you no problem! There's also a licensed aesthetician, massage therapist and a chiropractor all on site!
My son has woken up everyday begging to go to the gym and I'm SO happy to accommodate him! I'm excited to go and I'm smiling wide when we leave! This is the best thing I've done for myself after joining SP!
