Anytime Fitness Winter Park

Good Morning!

A couple of days ago, the lovely people from Anytime Fitness Winter Park, FL contacted me to come check out their gym, and attend a yoga class.

In the car on the way over, I had a Blueberry crisp CLIF bar. It reminded me of a Blueberry muffin! 😀

I have only ever been to a yoga class one other time, and it was hard! I’m extremely inflexible, so I was a little nervous about going.

The yoga studio was very nice! It was in the back of the building, which was quiet and dark. The little amount of lighting made it feel relaxing and serene.

The instructor was awesome, and kept reminding us that yoga is about focusing and breathing. It doesn’t matter what’s happened before or after, only in THAT moment. Words to live by! We did some gentle stretching- Hatha type yoga, and ended with some meditation.

I tried picturing myself somewhere far away from all my school stress, and this is what I pictured:

LA JOLLA (9) 

Beautiful, huh?

(Taken in March 2008, on a trip to San Diego, CA. This is at La Jolla, CA.)

Gentle yoga was just what I needed with all the school stress I have piling up! I never realized just how many directions my mind is going in until I was on the mat, literally thinking about only breathing. Amazing!

We also got to check out the rest of the facilities. The staff was super friendly showing Caitlin and I around!

Some of my favorite features (other than the staff and yoga studio) was that there are tvs on the cardio equipment! Now THAT would make running on a treadmill so much nicer!

I also really liked that the gym is 24 hours! As you can tell from my Marathon Training plan, I like my workouts to work around MY schedule, not the other way around!

You just have to have a little key to come in, but the building is very secure! They even have little necklaces you can wear with a button that calls 911!

That way, if you are the only one there and something happens to you, just push the button! As a woman, that would make me feel safer working out there!

 

This gym seems very reasonably priced and is located to next door to Whole Foods! Caitlin and I stopped in to pick up some goodies, including a pumpkin scone which I stole a few nibbles from 😀

Thanks again to Anytime Fitness for letting us come check out the facilities! 😀

Be sure to check them out on Twitter!

 

What aspects of a gym are most attractive to you? Cheap memberships? Location? Facilities?

 

Namaste.

Flatwoods with Dad

Good Morning! I can’t believe its already Wednesday. The week seems to be flying by!

I fell asleep pretty quickly last night. I think that the yoga helped me relax last night. Did anyone else try it?

Last night my dad and I planned to wake up before the sun and head out for a bike ride! My dad is the only person I will currently bike with because he rides the same pace and also house a mountain bike (as opposed to a road bike).

I wasn’t too hungry when I woke up but I knew I would regret eating nothing before our 11 mile ride. I snacked on this banana in the car:

We headed to the local Flatwoods Park in Tampa. It was daylight by the time we got there, so we hit the trail!!

This morning’s bike ride stats:

  • Distance: 11.2 Miles
  • Time: 57:00
  • Average Pace: 5:06 min/mile

So as you can see, we were going pretty fast!! On my crappy bike, that is amazing!!

It was fun riding with my dad. We discussed all kinds of stuff like nutrition, road bikes, and how the people on road bikes thought they owned the road!!

Once we got back, I was pretty hungry. I’m sorry that my breakfasts aren’t that exciting, I have limited choices at my parent’s house!

My Oatmeal was pretty uneventful:

Ok well I better hurry so I’m not late for babysitting!!
