That's a shame, no other gym you can goto?
I love my hydro and sauna at the end of the workout, really relaxes your muscles after a good session!

I'm not a morning person, so i've decided to start each work day with a some crunches and pushups... after a protein shake, cup of earl gray tea and a banana...

Abdominal Crunches

Push Ups

-- surprising how pumped your chest feels after these

Will workup to 100 of each first thing in the mornings, I hope.

Saturday 12th March - Fun Fun Fun exercise

http://www.awesomewalls.co.uk/Liverpool.html

Can't believe it's been six weeks since my introduction to Awesome walls.

Made some good progress today, learned to keep my body closer to the wall and stop poking my fat arse out.

Fear of heights kicked in when I got over certain heights and was applying chalk to my sweaty palms every couple of feet :oops:

Good work out on my hands and forearms though :D
