I belong to a gym, yes. In fact, I belong to two gyms; Club Hollywood Fitness Studio and 24 Hour Fitness. I am also certified in personal training, group aerobics, sports nutrition, and senior (and not just because I'm old, either!) fitness instruction.

Have you ever noticed that you never hear anyone say "I wish I hadn't gone to the gym today?"

absolutely right, Caine. No matter how tired I really am, or tell myself I am, I always feel better after going.

It's the getting up and going part that stymies us slackers.

I just walk a country mile down a country road every day. There is plenty of fresh air, birds, and wild life to keep me company. Then there is the smell of pine and cedar...and oooh the sweet smell of honeysuckle!!

Nope and I sure feel guilty about it.

I wish I hadn't gone to the gym today and signed a lifetime contract!

I agree.......I've got a beautiful stream that I walk to, about a mile each way. Good for the soul and the legs!

I've got a lifetime contract with 24 Hour Fitness and I love it! That's what convinced me to sign with them, even though their locations aren't really convenient for me.

I paid $700.00, up front, for a three year membership. Once that expires, I can renew my membership for 50 bucks a year, for the rest of my life!

Oh, and yes, I did hit the gym this morning for cardio at around 5:07 am.

I do a lot more stretching rather than physical exercises. I find that stretching my arms in the air and touching the floor behind me is better conditioning for the abs than situps or pushups. My son is just the opposite although he doesn't realize how many stretching exercises he is doing on the football field. When guys decide to exercise, they always want to run before they build up to walking! Maybe they should start with an easy crawl as that is where they keep everything stored (on the floor).

Does anyone practice Poi/fire dancing? We probably have all ran through the neighborhood with sparklers but exercising with a jousting pole with torches on each end??? Or flaming weights???
