"I hope to never have to rely on a "typical gym" with numbing television screens for fitness options ever again."
Durning a quick trip to the Beach I walked past a typical gym a couple of times. I saw people on treadmills and ellipticals, watching television monitors and had a visceral reaction. I am so glad to be in a fitness community where we leave the big bay doors open, where we are encouraged to be part of the world outside the walls and not separate from it. I am so thankful that part of my fitness program includes building my strength and skills in the gym and then going out into the ocean for a swim or doing yoga or being able to run now now a days. I hope to never have to rely on a “typical gym” with numbing television screens for fitness options ever again. My gym membership may be one of my biggest expenses, but good god, it is worth every penny.
