Find Your Fitness Routine in 2015 #GetFit2015

The other day I was in the grocery store shopping for holiday meals when a gentleman came up to me and said – “I have to ask you – (points to pie crust) is this how you keep up your hourglass figure?”


I’m pretty sure it was meant to be a compliment. But we all know from my post mommy is not fat that I tend to use comments on my body (meant in jest or as compliments) as positive motivation to re-focus on health. Naturally, after this interaction I immediately walked next door to start the fitness project that’s been on my mind for a few week. I’m calling it #getfit2015, but really it’s more about finding the fitness routine, and the fitness facility, that works for you.

The Challenge

Each week on Health & Fitness Tuesdays, I’ll share my experience trying out every local gym, yoga studio, and other exercise scenario that I think might work for me in 2015. I’ll share my story and the benefits and drawbacks of each option.

Here is my criteria:

  • Convenience: It has to be close to home. It has be accessible.
  • Cost: Affordability is important; cost has to represent value.
  • Amenities: I would love a clean locker room, childcare, and a hot tub.
  • Classes: I need more yoga in my life. Gyms with good yoga get extra points!

Based on the criteria, here are the options on my list so far:

  1. Minimal, all-access, 24-hour gym
  2. Gyms with some classes and limited amenities
  3. Gyms with lots of classes & amenities
  4. Spa gym
  5. Yoga studio
  6. Hot yoga studio
  7. At-home self-paced workouts

So follow along as I share my experience – the good, the bad, the blah – and find your fitness favorites with #getfit2015!
