In with the new! I'm not all that fond of change...rather preferring to do things the way they have always been. But on occasion...we are forced to chart a new course.
For me that meant joining a new gym...without ever planning to. A few years back, I enrolled in a basic fitness class called 'No Sweat'. Having to give up jogging because of lower back issues, I decided to join a friend at the class she was so enjoying. The friend moved on...I'm still heading out to my class several times a week. I can't say I look forward to it...but it always feels good once the session is over! In order to take the class, I joined the gym..which happened to be in a rather old facility. It rains here on occasion...and when it did, there were buckets strategically placed to catch the drips. We worked around them...and we had fun despite the dampness.
Several weeks ago, we were informed that the gym was closing it's doors on December 15th...and our memberships were being transferred to a new location, along with the 'No Sweat' class.
A brand new facility...just nearing completion! Well, I didn't really like it. 'The Pumphouse' doesn't exactly sound like my kind of place...but this week, I went for my inaugural visit. I think I may just be able to adapt. And I'm still in good company!
We posed for a group photo after a final class at the leaky-roof-gym...a little sad that the familiar was about to change...
...but knowing that most of us would meet again at the new facility.
So it may not be the New Year, but I've already turned a page. We'll see how it goes!
And guess what else is new today? We have snow...and it sounds like it may be around for awhile.
