This morning I went to Anytime Fitness in Winter Park, Florida to check out their gym and try their morning yoga class.
I quit the gym a few months ago (I belonged to LA Fitness) because I hated the crowds, bad music, weird hours, old equipment, and lame classes. Anytime Fitness seems to be everything that LA Fitness was not.
First of all, it’s open 24 hours a day! Each employee has a key that allows them to enter the building – even if no employees are present. To stay safe, you can wear an emergency sensor that will call 911 if you injure yourself alone.
My ‘in case of emergency’ face. 🙂
I wish I could join this gym (we can’t afford a gym membership right now even though Anytime Fitness is reasonably priced) because all the equipment is SO SWANKY!
Plus, the yoga studio was great. I typically despise gym studios because they leave on the icky fluorescent lights. It just never feels like a true “yoga studio.” But this one was perfect:
Megan and I really enjoyed the class. It was more relaxation yoga than workout yoga, but that’s exactly what I needed this morning. I think I actually fell asleep during one of the meditations. The class ended with an excellent quote about how “life is perpetual possibilities.” 🙂
Before class, I had a slice of bread with jam (I skipped the PB toast because I was late):
And after class, I had this AMAZING pumpkin scone from Whole Foods:
Megan helped me eat it, thankfully. :) My tummy is happy!
Namaste! See you for lunch!
Do you belong to a gym or not? I found it was relatively easy to break the gym habit, but of course – I live in Florida and can work out outdoors all year long. I do miss the weight room, though!
PS – You can follow Anytime Fitness Winter Park on Twitter! They actually have a really fun and interesting twitter feed, especially if you’re a local.
