Today was the first day back in a workout mode in a long time. Didn’t I mention how I cleaned up the living room so I could get back on combat? Well that got ruined last night when I moved some stuff around to play carpernter and put together my IKEA dresser. I’m going to finish unpacking into the dresser today…but that meant at 6am I had to find another place to workout or wait until after work. Ya’ll know I do NOT do after work well or consistently…so that wasn’t an option. So I figured I’d check out the morning rush at the apartment gym and scope it out. I figure some mornings I will want to bring my laptop down here so I can do the DVDs if they are high intensity (I don’t live on the ground floor) so today was a scouting trip. I was beyond surprised to see…..
Right….nobody. I was in the gym for about 40 minutes and there wasn’t a single person that was there when I got there or came in while I was working out. Perfect for me…it’s like my own private gym 🙂 You can see from the picture that the apartment gym is pretty well stocked – treadmills, arc trainers, bikes, yoga mats, medicine balls, swiss balls, free weights and weight machines. There is some free room by the free weights that I could use if I set my laptop up with a DVD. Plus I could probably do some kick butt P90x in there if I wanted to since the weight rack is close.
Today I was pretty all over the place to be honest…I’m usually better with building my circuits. But I was just antsy to workout. So I did a 5 min warm up on the arc trainer then did a low weight/high rep circuit alternating legs and upper body. Added abs at the end and cooled down with the bike for 5 minutes. The good thing about this gym is that I will definitely get some practice building my own circuits and routines 🙂
Also – if anyone out there is a personal trainer/health/wellness coach and would not mind me asking them some questions, can you please shoot me an email – firstname.lastname@example.org. I am currently researching certifications and getting wildly confused about all that is out there!
