Thread: I joined the Y
#1 I joined the Y05-03-2013, 06:39 PM
I signed my daughter up for summer camp at our local Y yesterday. In order to get a better rate, I had to sign up for membership...which pays for itself.
I went to the gym for years, before I had my daughter, and never went back.
I hate gyms, I hate the smells, I hate the dumb guys, and the girls who just go to be stared at..never breaking a sweat.
The Y seems different...the people seem normal. I may actually like going back to the gym, even though my reason for joining was to get a better rate..lol...but maybe it will be good for me. I'm looking forward to using the pools with my daughter and swimming lessons are included in my daughter's summer camp. I want to get back into swimming laps.
I joined up with the Family plan so my kid can sign up for sports teams and the like.
I haven't worked out in nearly 4 years...my out of shape ass is going to be cursing me out when I get back into it. I'm not that fat, but I have lost all my muscle tone.

Good for you, Hawk.......

BTW, if they have a pool, you can do a great cardio routine by walking laps. Pushing against the water is zero impact, but it's harder than simply walking. Enjoy.--Odysseus

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

Sounds like a great idea!

I'd like to try a Zumba class and their yoga classes too...Back in the day I did Bikram yoga 3 times a week, basically it's yoga in 98 degree weather...oh man did you SWEAT! It felt awesome after. I followed it with some nonfat frozen yogurt for lunch after a morning class.
Man, a kid makes you a different person...I need to get back to that.

About Bikram yoga if anyone is interested. If I had a studio in my neighborhood, I'd get back into it in a heartbeat.
