I go to the West YMCA also! You can find me there around 5:30ish, I do a half hour on the elliptical machine, followed by some weight lifting. Then depending on the day, I'll get in the hot tub :)
I live exactly .5 mile from the Y so if I walk there and back that adds an easy mile to my day!

Cindy,
I am in Clinton. My friend teaches water aerobics at the North one.
Maybe someday soon I can come down and just do a day pass there and we can workout. I will have to see how things go.

Which one do you go to? I go to one in
Davenport by West High School. It cost
me 18 a month and love it. I work out 2
or 3 days aweek and be great to have a
work-out buddy if you're over this way
on the Iowa side. Just let me know.I'm
not crazy of the treadmills but 20 mins
on the elliptical trainer and weights
machines in the fitness room then it's
the pool when the school don't have class.

I too have YWCA membership. I went to curves to try it out and knew instantly I would get bored doing the same thing every day.
Our YWCA has an AWESOME fitness room. Tons of classes that are free with a full membership. I am even doing Bellydancing classes. I spend 3-4 hours in the pool M-F. Once fall starts they are bringing back the saturday morning water class. I can't wait. The water classes really help my arthritis. Once I get another 30-50lbs off I might try the elliptical and treadmill but for now the water works for me.

I would love to get together with you guys. Maybe we can do lunch on a Saturday and get our walking in at the mall.

Cindy,
Hello there. My friend just moved from Buffalo. She lived in the house that was almost in Casey's parking lot.... funny. Anyway, I'm checking out the Y too for the cost mainly. Do you like it?

AmyLou,
That sounds alright. I'm hoping their membership isn't too much. I'm comparing with the Y since the Y is much closer and I should get a scholarship or whatever they call it. :)

I like it there. It's a "dry" gym...no showers, no saunas or hot tubs, etc. It's not huge, but I never have problems finding machines. Of course, I go at 5:30. It's not real busy at that time of the morning. You should definitely take advantage of the free week and see if you like it. Sparkmail me if you want to work out together sometime! I have just been doing cardio right now. Just the bike and the treadmill so far. Eventually I want to work in weights. Hope to hear from you soon!

AMYLOUJR,
I just checked them out online. It says I can get a week free to try them out. I sent an email. It's the one on 50th? Would you really recommend them?

Thanks for the welcome as well! :)

Race for the Cure is a 5K that raises money for the Susan G Komen foundation (breast cancer research/care). It is not a "race" per se... People are welcome to walk (as long as you stay towards the back of the pack so you won't be trampled emoticon )!

Hi, everyone! I am so happy to find a QC team! I am from Moline, and would always welcome a work out buddy!

Lately I have been going to Fitness Express (East Moline), while Kinetic Fitness (the new gym in King Plaza on Ave of Cities) is being built.

I would love to do the Race for the Cure, but I am working the event! They won't let me run and work at the same time (I already asked)!

Welcome to the team, Marjean1! We definitely need to get this team going. I also live in Dport. I go to Fitness Xpress every morning (or I try to go every morning!) I was thinking I wanted to maybe start walking at night as well. Maybe we could get together sometime! Good luck with everything!

Hi! I just joined today and see that this team IS pretty quiet. My friend and I just found SparkPeople a few days ago and need motivation! We've started walking Monday and so far it's been so-so. [I can't believe it snowed Monday!] We were thinking about finding some people in Davenport who might also need some exercise partners to keep us all moving.

Anyway, I wish you all the best in life and health!

This is a quiet group. Maybe we should try to get it going. It is always nice to chat with people from your area. I have difficulty with beer also! I get the munchies--major bad!!

I don't think I'll be eating any of the bar food...definitely not good for me. The problem is the beer that I'm sure I'll be drinking. Oh well, I'll try to keep it to a minimum! I am in Davenport. I'm starting a part time job on Saturday, so I will have a little less free time. Maybe that will help me with my weight loss. We can only hope!

Have a great weekend working out with your hubby! Keep in touch!

This is definitely a very quiet team! I am having lots of success...in being unsuccessful! My favorite band is playing at the bar I always go to, so I will probably be found there at least one night this weekend. Next week, I REALLY need to find my way back to the gym. I'm tired of making excuses!

Thanks for starting some dialogue on here. Have a great weekend!
