i joined the gym again.

after having been gymless for a while.

Previously I had memberships at Clay Madson Rec Center (near work and cheap) and Gold's Gym (I didn't like it).

I've decided if I'm serious about losing weight before Pennsic that I should exercise more. So I went swimming yesterday and today.
Yesterday I toured Pure Austin Fitness on Braker. It had it's own lake. But the place felt very.. gym-like. And 24 hr fitness, even though it is very close to my house... is not as clean as I would like it to be. And they've no towel service.

So I'm now a member at The Hills Fitness center. It's out of the way, but for some reason, I really like that gym. It has a nice feel, because it is very wooded. And the people seem really nice. If you want to try it, it's $15 for a day pass.

The Hills had better be nice because it costs 3x per month what my Gold's membership costs!

Michelle had a membership there a few years ago. Lovely place but you pay pay pay for it.

haha :) i used to be part of gold's gym. probably paid about 1.5 years worth without ever stepping foot on it. partly because quitting it was complicated (i had to mail a letter).

and there was no swimming pool.

i love The Hills so far. i even got my own personal locker and laundry service. which is great if you love to swim.

i even went there this morning. i'd stopped exercising much after finishing the distance challenge in Feb. And my body needs to be more in shape. So if there exists a gym that actually makes me excited about going.. then I'm all for it.

I am very fond of The Hills, too. It feels less like a gym and more like a friend's really big house that just happens to have a pool, weights, and a ballroom dance practice space.

yes! well said.

it's really strange, i'm actually craving to be there right now. which is odd for a gym. but it just doesn't feel like a gym. and i really like swimming.
