New Way of Working Out

Since 2005, Taylor and I have consistently had a gym membership. West Valley Family Fitness Center was right around the corner from us when we lived in WVC, and we got a family annual membership for about $250. Then we moved to California, and signed up for 24 Hour Fitness for $55 per month. Then we moved to Michigan, and went to Lifetime Fitness for $106 per month. There’s an LA Fitness not far from us in Georgia, but we decided to try some home equipment. I always use the excuse that I don’t look presentable for public in my gym clothes, or that I don’t have enough time to drive 10 min each way to the gym. So Taylor and I decided to give major fitness equipment ownership a try.

We researched dozens and dozens of machines, and decided on the Schwinn 430, rated as the best option under $1000 (we paid $599 with shipping). It’ll be delivered next week. Taylor also got me Jillian’s Shred Workout DVD for the times that the elliptical just doesn’t cut it. Our new condo has a pool and tennis courts available when the weather warms up. And we’re going to get a pass to Stone Mountain park for hiking and bike riding.

2009 will the the year to be active.
