Our Tiny Gym

Where membership is free and there’s no waiting for machines!

(If D gets in my way, I can just smack him.  That was frowned upon at my previous gym.)

This giant monstrosity is our new Bowflex Revolution.  Loving this!  I was always pretty self-conscious doing strength training at the gym.  I always felt like I was crashing some kind of frat party or something… damn bunch of pretty-boy muscle heads…

C.C. always “supervises” me.
I love that it stands up to take up less space.  Although that’s not really an issue for us right now, but it’s nice to know it’s an option.  And it DOES make vacuuming easier.  And it leaves plenty of floor space should I decide to take up pole dancing or karate.  Both viable options.
Bella and Harley suffer from a severe case of FOMO (fear of missing out).

The Bowflex came with this awesome accessory rack (thank goodness–like we need more crap stacked in the floor).  And there in the corner is my new pride and joy–a Sunny Health & Fitness indoor cycle.  I could tell you all about it, but there’s no sense reinventing the wheel.  Janae just bought the same one and has already posted a full and very accurate review here.  Most definitely worth the money!

After laying down all that cash, I thought our gym was complete, but DUDE, we have GOT to get a TV for that room.  Music makes the time in the saddle tolerable, but the view kind of sucks.

And, who knows… if I happen to come across a good deal on a Craigslist treadmill…

  1. I was looking at the pictures and thinking there is no way I could stand being on the bike very long while looking at the wall…definitely get a TV and turn that sucker around. I like how the cat is allowed in but the dogs are not. One of my stands beside me and licks my leg as I'm running on the treadmill, trying to break that habit!

  2. I was totally going to say, “The only thing your missing is a big flat screen!” But you're right – you also NEED a treadmill. I mean, you're a RUNNER after all! Awesome gym – I'm jealous!
