Hey did I tell you guys that we joined a new gym? It sort of makes me excited to start working out gain. Some pictures of the awesomeness of the new gym:
|I am one that didn't love cycle class, but have been taking it the past two weeks and sort of loving it - picture found via their website|
Seriously this is actually a picture of the pool area. Baby Fox is too short to go on the slides but in 4 inches he'll be ready to go! There are is also an indoor and outdoor lap pools.

Anyway, the main reason we really joined the club was for this:

along with going to our local rock gym
But then we bought a house, had kids and haven't been back since Baby Fox was born...actually before that since pregnancy and rock climbing don't mix well. Plus there isn't really a rock gym close to use any more.
Now that this gym has a rock gym, Mr. and I are trying to do a rock climbing date once a week, we're loving it!
Join me on a climb:
Here we are all set and ready to go
Not that far off the ground, I found a good footing and hold, yep he's the only one keeping me from "hitting the ground"
A little further up
Almost there...just a little further, but gotta stop to take a picture
Made it to the top
|I am no longer on the wall, Mr. is holding me up so that I could take this picture. Note to self: Don't wear dark colored shirt for climbing...chalk is everywhere!|
My view from up there - this is actually a different climb than the one from above
At the Top
Doesn't it make you want to go find a rock wall? Trust me I am scared of heights, so if I can do it, you can do it too! I actually was really scared of the self belay and had a tough time trusting some mechanism to lower me down...
I did take a video on my way down, but it wasn't very good, I'll try again next week.
So now that you've seen it, want to try it? It's a great workout and fun too!
Hope you guys have a great weekend!
