Sad Day For Me

Monday, April 04, 2011

Well, today I woke up like usual and got ready to go to the gym before work like I usually do for anywhere from an hour+ to an hour and a half. When I walked in the door, the morning gym worker (wonderful person) told me to look at the notice posted. The gym is closing (for financial reasons) on April 15!! It about made me cry. I have made so many wonderful friends at the gym and enjoy the morning work out which totally gets me ready for a stressful job (law firm) that I just hate the thoughts of not starting my day there. Now what am I going to do? It was really hard to find a gym that opened early enough to work out before work that I could afford. We have had some high class gyms open after I joined this one, but they are very expensive. I just do not know what I am going to do other than work out at home before work. Thank you for letting me pour out my feelings and upsetness. emoticon

    I understand your pain. Much of your experience at the gym is the human connections. So many upscale gyms are just not affordable to the average person. I go to the local Y which is both inexpensive and well-equipted. Would that be a possibility for you?

    What a bummer! Sometimes gym's move to different location for cheaper rent. I know the Curves gym has moved to different locations because of rent issues, in my city. There is also community rec centers, membership or pay as you use. Rec centers in my city, open the workout rooms and pools at 6 am.

    If you have managed to get phone #'s from your new buddy's maybe they have some solutions to share!

    Wow, that stinks!! Such a sudden closing, too.
    Do you not like running outside? I had to stop going to my gym because I'm a college student and therefore too poor to pay for a membership. But it made me realize that I love running outside. Especially in the morning when all I can hear are the birds chirping and my feet hitting the ground at a steady pace. As for the weight machines, I just do the strength exercises and they are really help me tone my body!
    If not, then I hope you find another great gym, maybe all of your friends from that gym will join you in our new one!
    Best of luck
