Breaking Up the Routine

Although kettlebells are awesome for strength building and fat burning, after a while it's my nature to get bored with things (except for my wife, of course). :-) So today I broke down and signed up with Gold's Gym. It's been quite a while since I did any kind of standard bodybuilding type workout, so it'll be interesting to see how things go.

My wife has gone to Gold's with a friend on a guest pass a few times and really likes their "Body Pump" classes, so for our anniversary I thought I'd go ahead and get us a couple of memberships. Yeah, yeah I know… I'm a true romantic.

She doesn't ask for a lot of stuff (as opposed to some guy I know, who is always sniffing around for the latest DVD or electronics gear), so I thought it was the least I could do.

I really can't stand their misleading marketing tactics, but they don't have a 24 Hour Fitness any closer than about 30 miles away. Normally I would just go out and buy an Olympic weight set, but since I'm self-employed and work from home, I really need to get out of the house more, so I went ahead and signed up.
