My Gym

OK, committing to exercising every day, so I figured I would post pics of my gym. I'm better doing it at home. And I have a large master bedroom, so that is where it's set up.

This used to be where the treadmill was, but we finally killed it. Waiting for the funds to get a new one. (The door goes outside to the deck in the back of the house.)

Mini-tramps are really a nice thing to have around. It's great while watching a movie or TV, just bouncing in place or a jog in place kind of thing. It doesn't take much at all to get my heart rate up. It had workout bands attached, but they weren't exactly made for a woman almost 6 ft tall. They didn't last long. :-P The blue Ultimate Abs ball is actually a really great abs workout. It's by Danskin and I found it at Walmart. The tube is what I lay on to stretch out my back and keep from getting the dowager hump (recommended by my chiro). You put it along your spine, then put your arms in the goalpost position, like you are signaling a touchdown and let them fall back. If you are young and flexible, your arms will probably touch the ground. Mine are almost getting there! :-) Purple weights are 5lbs each. I also have a regular shaper ball in the bathroom I sit on at the vanity to put my makeup on, will also use it in workouts.

During the summer, this is my gym. That is my pool boy. ;-) Also known as the hubby.

Nice gym!! I have an extra room that I've got some equipment in but I really want to get a treadmill! I'll have to see if I can find a trampoline.

I like working out at home too. I have a treadmill, even though I don't like it, but sometimes with the icy conditions its the only option.

Ok. I'm totally jealous. That's a beautiful pool!!!

I've gotten back to working out at home & I prefer it. With the spine roller, do you use it vertically like your spine or horizontally when you do the touchdown signal?

Nice set-up, June! I wish you lived closer. I have a treadmill in my garage I'd be willing to pass along! If you're near Memphis in the near future and you have a truck... :)

Jealous! What a nice little home gym.

Suzi, Walmart has the mini-tramps.

Katrin, it's not ice, but the heat and/or humidity that keeps me inside in the summer! :-)

MojoMissy, with the roller, you can do it both ways, but so far I've only done with the roller vertically straight down my spine. The horizontal one hurts too much right now.

Hoot, the pool was a condition of my moving from my beloved Colorado down to the heat of south Texas. It's the only way to survive the summer. :-P

Cammy, shoot! Wish I was making a road trip your way! :) I'm going to keep checking Craig's List periodically to see if I can get lucky and find someone who bought a Treadclimber and has buyer's regret and just wants to get rid of it!

Daily exercise is an awesome way to support your fitness. I have just recommitted too. I have an elliptical that takes up alot of space, but it is worth it. I bet that pool is awesome in the summer!
