My gym has become infested with college students. We only have one squat rack and one non-wobbly bench press and the last few days I've gone they've been occupied with kids more interested in looking at their phones than working out. Honestly, I can be done my entire workout in the time it takes these people to do one exercise.

 

So I signed up for my initial consultation-slash-high pressure sales pitch. The gym down the street has olympic lifting sessions, so let's figure out what it takes to get decent at that. Now that my divorce and custody are finalized I can plan things out much better, and hopefully no more waiting for the bro to stop looking at his guns while he curls in the squat rack <_<

Multiple times, too. So I'm definitely good.

 

But have I mentioned keto? :scratch:

I have a close friend who is a runner. One of her bestie running partners is giving her the hard sale Keto pitch. She is almost to the point of avoiding her.

I don't know how many are close, but it's good to check out different gyms - can be huge differences in how they operate & the overall vibe.

There are two. One seems to be "traditional" crossfit. The one I'm going to has an oly lifting program that I'm more interested in.

That's cool. Prior to gym ownership, I did an Oly focused program for a couple of years - 3 x week oly, 2 x (+/-) regular cf.

This one does CF 6x a week and has 4 oly sessions. Between work and my ####ed up custody schedules I'll hopefully be able to make 2 a week. I'm not sure if they're going to want me to start with CF first, though. Otherwise I think I'll sign up for a bunch of coached sessions at first and then add them as needed later.

If a vegan could muster the energy to handle crossfit it would be a deadly combination of braggadocio.

Met this morning, first session is tomorrow. They have an area set aside for kids to be comfortable as they watch youtube videos, which means I ought to be able to make as many oly sessions as I want. Very healthy population of 30-40 year old sweaty chicks in spandex. I'm starting to see the appeal of crossfit :D
