It's WONDERFUL!!

Look at this $20 million dollar fitness center!! 107,000 square feet of Wellness and Fitness! I am so excited I went back to school! Now I actually get the chance to use this Student Wellness Center I was paying for when I was getting my undergraduate degree!

I headed there after class tonight at about 7ish. It looked awesome from the outside, I could only imaged what it looked like on the inside! I got in there, and I am sure my jaw was hitting the floor. If you saw our old fitness center, you would have had the same expression as me!

Some stats:

  • 15,000 square-foot weight and cardio floor, which includes 109 weight machines and 57 cardio machines
  • 200-meter running track, with windows along most of the perimeter to give runners the sense of being outside
  • In the center's Spin Studio, exercisers can bike along to projected images of scenic parks on a large screen. If nature isn't exciting enough, the studio also has a disco ball, strobe lights and a smoke machine for a club-like feel.
  • The center also has three full basketball courts and a multi-purpose activity court for roller hockey and indoor soccer.

So, I took the thrillmill for a ride! At about mile 2 I spilled my water all over the belt of the thrillmill and chose to switch to another machine....I didn't want to kill myself! From there I finished my third mile and was outa there! What a great feeling - to be running again! In a week in a half I plan to run a 5K with my parents for Homecoming weekend! It should be pretty fun!

Oh, and I can't forget to mention how proud I am of my TWINS!!! They have made it to the playoffs! Now, if they can just beat KC tonight! I will be thrilled!

Happy runnings, y'all! (I can say that now that I am back on the horse again!!!)

Sounds like an amazing place! I'm so jealous. The same thing happened at my school, built a fantastic fitness center after I had left, but unlike you I never went back and got to use it. Oh well. It's great that you get the chance to reap the benefits of yours!
