I can actually say that waking up this morning physically hurt to get out of bed for my early spin class. The best part about being an aerobics instructor is that you have a ton of motivation (um, your job is on the line) to get up, be positive and get a killer workout.

I am really loving the fact that after I teach spin I have about 25 minutes to hit up the weight room. In case you can’t tell those are sets of 50 lb, 40 lb and 30 lb dumbbells;) Okay, they are really 12, 10 and 8.
You can only get into the weight room through the women’s locker room….girls only. I kind of love that. The Gold’s gym that I go to is only $10 a month and so it is always packed to the brim and you can’t have more than 1 square foot in the weight room. It feels like a whole new world to have my own bench, mirror and floor area to do whatever the heck I want.
I also love that they have posters all around the room next to the different equipment with ideas of what to do for people like me that are beginners with this whole lifting outside of a body pump class or without a Jillian DVD.
Since I am obviously enjoying talking about money today can we talk about how when I was looking up the NYCM to apply I saw that they raised their prices from $196 to $255 this year (US residents who are not members of the New York Road Runners) and for international applicants they will pay $347 if they are accepted. For a marathon?!?! Yeah, it was my favorite race that I have ever done but is it worth not paying my rent next month to sign up? I answer yes, I don’t want to know what Billy’s answer is.
If you are a gym member and you feel comfortable sharing, how much is your gym pass a month? Do you have a women’s only section in your gym?
-I think Utah is just out of control cheap and only 10 bucks….I know the Gold’s in Cali that I go to in the summer is at least 4 x that much.
Favorite part of your body to work on when lifting?
-My shoulders…I love that burn and I think toned shoulders look amazing!
Where do you draw the line when it comes to paying for a marathon or half-marathon?
What day of the week do you have to wake up the earliest or do you wake up at the same time every day?
