Maybe I've just worked out in a gym too long, but L.A. Fitness doesn't work for me.
Too antiseptic; no soul; no one in there this morning even remotely hard-core.
It is what it says it is -- a "fitness" club.
Machines all in nice rows by body part; carpeted; and no one grunting or groaning. In fact, I didn't see anyone even speaking to each other. Felt, well, lonely.
Which means it is probably right for most people; I have no problems with anyone's choice of workout experiences.
But we like something a bit more raw; actually a lot more raw.
We did back today - 20 sets, plus abdominals and 30 minutes on the Precor.
Nothing wrong with the workout; but the atmosphere was just not motivating. We're also without our NO supplement ("White Flood") and that makes a difference in energy levels, too.
An FYI on cool equipment -- I like the Nautilus Mid-Row machine - good range of motion and it keeps you strict.
Tomorrow is legs and we're going to try something new -- so stay tuned.
Train hard; diet harder.
