New Exercise Equipment Makes Me So Happy

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

I feel like such a lucky girl.

One of the things I loathe is doing my pt exercises. They are slow. Tedious. Time-consuming. And you cannot see results for weeks and weeks and weeks.

But I've stuck with them pretty well for over a decade. I feel worse if I don't do them, but they don't really make me "better."

This weekend we found a Body By Jake contraption at Costco for 33% off. I never saw this thing before, but it was set up and you could play with it. My dh started using it a bit and I suddenly saw he was doing some of my pt exercises on that scary-looking thing.

I've been looking for a lat pulldown machine, but the professional kind so I wouldn't need an entire gym for that one part. I got in position to do the pulldown exercise that works a pair of tiny muscles in my back, and it worked!!

So this thing is home. We assembled it on my exercise room (spare bedroom) door .... and found a b.i.g problem. The finish on our 120 year-old doors doesn't like that pressure from the machine. We'll replace the old closet door with a cheap new one and I'll be good to go.

After all these years, I have a new way to do those pt exercises, and I'm actually looking forward to it.
