I have mentioned going to the gym in several places over the last few months to a great number of people. Even the guy at EB Games wondered where half of me went when I dropped in to trade some games to get NHL 11 a couple months ago.
I enjoy the gym, I've spent a lot of time there obviously and what it's done is allow me to do so many things I enjoy at a much higher level. I was telling Jodi - my amazing trainer - this morning that what has been accomplished at the gym is showing it self all over my life lately especially since hockey has started up for me. For the first time in the 5 years I have been playing hockey on the weekends I played 2 games back to back on the same night on Oct 30th (meaning I played 6 games total during reading week). I had no back pain, no muscle pain, I was able to skate as hard in the final minute of the second game as I did in the first minute of of the first game. Not having to worry about where my next breath is going to come from I can make smarter and better plays everything has improved so much all from time spent at the gym.
Of course this time spent at the gym has helped me out in other areas, like karate, like over all well-being like getting me on the right track to eating good healthy food (no point in working out if your going to eat a bag of chips after right?) It's helped me learn a lot about myself and introduced me to a bunch of great people like Jodi and the people who work at the desk. Basically the gym has done what any good friend does and improved my life in a number of areas.
Thanks Gym, see ya tomorrow!
