Glad you're on the forum! Hope we can be a support to yuo!


I had not realized that Madre! My family & I were also in Arizona, including the Phx/Tempe area, during much of that time - I wonder if we ever crossed paths... Perhaps at Gentle Strength?

Gentle Strength moved locations. My apartment is across the street from it on Southern and Mill.

Wow! :shock: The Coop had been at the location on University for as long as I can remember...

Gentle Strength was my favorite place in all of the greater Phx area - do ya happen to know if they will they still have a free store & community meeting space at the new location?

I used to live in Phoenix and I've been to that place too :)

I lived on 24th and Highland near the Ritz Carlton Hotel but I made it over to Tempe ever once in a while.

We need to get more members from there! I hope to travel to that area sometime this year. I have about 5 relatives in the Phoenix area who I haven't seen since I lived there in 2001.

I am not sure about the meeting space. I just go there for a few things. Most things there are more expensive than other places. But I am starting to cut out the frozen foods out of my diet and going towards making meals from scratch so maybe I will end up shopping there much more often. They still seem kinda expensive though.. :(
In any case....here is the site http://www.gentlestrength.com/

Welcome!

If you don't like the gym, you can accomplish tons with bodyweight exercises. There's a bunch of us bodyweight types on the forum.

Cheers!
