I'm so excited! My brother lives in Mexico and doesn't get home to visit us until his summer holidays and Christmas every year. Well he sent me a text yesterday telling me that I have to go to World's Gym before 1pm. He bought me a years membership! I AM beyond thrilled! This is something that I just couldn't afford to do on my own (family of 5 living on one wage). Since my gym pass at the Rec Center ran out mid June (which he also bought), I've been seriously slacking on the exercise. My knees just can't seem to handle too much running, and my bike keeps getting flat tires. Excuses I know, but I've also had alot of stress with what's going on with my Mom. The result of my lack of exercise was my gain of 3 lbs last week. I guess my metabolism finally slowed. Anyways, my new gym is literally one block away. I'm not kidding. It would be ridiculous to drive there! And it's HUGE, like insanely massively huge! At least 20-25 times bigger than my other gym. There is a co-ed section, a ladies only section, a room that they do classes in (that I attend for free). There's tanning beds, childcare (awesome looking room) where they will take all 3 of my kids for 5 bucks! There's a store that sells clothing, protein drinks/bars, and water. Andddddd what I'm most excited about it my FREE session with a personal trainer! Yippee!!! I went last night for an hour, and it was sooooo empty. There's hardly ever anyone in there, or maybe it just seems that way because it's so big. There's TV's everywhere, way more then needed, and I love how the entire one side of the building is garage doors, so they open them all up when it's a nice day and you feel like you're outside :O)

Here's to gettin' buff, and growing some muscles :O)

and don't get too paranoid about those measly 3lbs, missy! you're just fine if you gain a teeny, tiny bit of weight. I mean you will an itty bit anyway when you start getting all ripped and stuff anyway :P

Your bro is a sweetheart. Your gym sounds like a great place. Don't freak out if the scales go up when you're muscle building!!! It's all good when you're working out!

That is really awesome Shaunna, you sound SO freakin' excited, I was all smiles reading your entry.

Sounds like a great gym, the part that I find most awesome is the childcare. Then you can literallly go when you want.

Love you to pieces

Wow, what a great bro you have :) I had to drop my gym membership a few months ago for financial reasons but in Sept I'm back to school with a free gym on Campus (also living on campus) and I'm super excited about it.

What a thoughtful and generous brother. When the gym is that close, you can't make any excuse (although my gym is 3 blocks away and I make that excuse all the time LOL)
