We finally pulled the trigger on our New Year's resolution to improve our health this year. I dread using the phrase "New Years Resolution" because I think that just jinxes things from the get go. But we finally signed up for memberships at the nearby 24 Hour Fitness. Our health has steadily declined over recent years, and much of it is due to inactivity. Add in a diet including too many trips to fast food and we've got problems.
I used to go to LA Fitness (about 7 years ago) and was going 7 days a week until I hurt my knee using a machine incorrectly, and we thought about re-joining, but we needed someplace that had more open hours, since I work nights and tend to be active in the middle of the night. We're going to the one at Bell and 32nd Street.
24Hour Fitness looks like it will fit our needs. Our club is just 2 miles away and they are open around the clock except Friday and Saturday nights.
I also like that they have lots of elliptical machines as well as stationary bikes and treadmills, good for variety.
I've just been my second time in two days, and it feels good to be active again.
I even managed to find the same elliptical machine at 24 hour Fitness that I was using at LA Fitness, the Precor 556i:
