My Own Private Mecca

Oh, what to say.

First thing that comes to mind is that I’m starving and craving some copious amounts of carbs at the moment. Thursday has typically been my “Pizza Night”, but at the moment, I’m actually craving some pasta. I have an event to attend here in a little under an hour so my journey to find my supper will have to be postponed for a short time.

Tinker With the Formula

Today has been a week I’ve tinkered with the workout formula in order to accelerate the results (aka gains) in the gym. I’ve temporally replaced my gym mistress, the Stair-master, with both the power rower and action bike. I’m realizing now as I type this that I should have taken some flash photography in order to fully describe those two machines. This shall suffice for now.

Rowers and action bikes are common staples in cross fit gyms across the country. They are highly effective ways getting legitimate cardio done along with activating damn near your entire body. From legs, core, and upper body, your whole body is put to use. For instance, I did ten minutes on the rower for my warm up and concluded my training session with ten minutes on the action bike. I can feel the DOMs (Delayed Onset of Muscle Soreness) kicking it now in my arms.

I easily burned over 100 calories in those combined twenty minutes compared to the work I typically put in while using an elliptical or stationary bike. Tomorrow being Friday, I will weigh myself in the morning to see what the week has resulted in. Unless I go into a massive junk food binge tonight, I suspect some interesting results.

Freedom Tastes Nice

Working in my newest gym has been a blessing for me. Though it’s smaller, it allows me to concentrate (along with my clients as well) to a level that heightens my senses and further my aptitude as a trainer. My clients seem to be enjoying it as well as their performance has increased for the better as well.

Some of us feed off the energy of others whereas they are those who feed off the silence & solitude of an empty gym. I’m a creature of both of those realms which makes this even more advantageous for yours truly.

As the days come, I’m curious to see what else I can do with this “mecca” of sorts and what it can do for my career and overall sense of self. Turning points come and go and this one is I have be fully vested in. Otherwise, what is this all for?
