    Default Anybody else hitting the gym this winter?

    I have been hitting the gym this winter, primarily riding the stationary bike, I have a torn left left meniscus. I want to get back on the rowing machine, but my right hand hasn't healed fully from surgery in late Sept.
    Here is my PB to date:

    That’s about 15 mph, very nice.

    I got a membership to the town’s recreation center with the lap pool. Have I been yet, no. Tomorrow, I promise.

    We gave up on the memberships here Larry, frankly it is just too expensive. There are 2 in Wasilla The Alaska Club and one called Body Renew. The Alaska Club last time we were members the cost for 2 adults was $120.00 / month! That's some darn expensive fitness in my experience. The Body Renew place is around $80.00 / month.

    I bought the updated Total Gym almost 1 1/2 years ago and between that - hand weights - walking and biking when it isn't -7 like today, that's the fitness program here The Total Gym is a quality product, I like it.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    The city recreation center is $27 per month, that’s a deal! Gym, pool, classes, no initiation fee.

    Every day for the last 9 years, since I retired. 20 minutes on the elliptical. 10 minutes on the stair climber or row machine. Then free weights for upper body (when I havn’t hurt my shoulder)& leg machines, every other day. Do it long enough & you actually miss it if you don’t go.

    Oh I miss it but seriously $1480.00 per year was not an intelligent choice. The club that was only$960.00 was a very Spartan place for the money so it's Total Gym for me.

    Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday I take my lunch at the Gym. Exercise isn't my issue - it's my diet. If I could get my diet under control I'd be in much better shape.

    Always maintain my fitness and stay in good shape. But flexibility/mobility is another story. I made it a point around summer to work on mobility and flexibility. No joke, that is the golden key. Honestly, I cut back on a lot of weightlifting and just do mobility/core/flexibility and yoga type movements. Makes you an iron slab wading in water. All the none show muscle are strong. Defintely the most injury prevention thing you can do in my opinion. It made me even stronger in certain lifts.

    No, I hit the Dojo every day when I'm not at a Gracie Brazilian studio . Between that and all the UFC comps I have been going to I just cant manage the time for machine work . Hopefully after my back surgery I can work on the Abs . Until then I'll just keep lying here on the forum .

    Our Y is around $800 a year for the family, other than swim lessons and summer camp we really weren't taking advantage of it until last winter. We went through 2 expensive elipticals in about 3 years. Both died just after their warranties expired. After the last one I decided to add a chase lounge to our sectional instead of replacing it. And with our older 2 kids old enough to stay at home by themselves for an hour or so we have hit the gym a lot more. I try to do weights every other day and the eliptical every day before work and most evenings.
