To most ordinary people this may look like a very nice laundry room.
And it is.
A lovely laundry room indeed.
But turn around 180 degrees…. and shaZAM!
Yep, one of the coolest things about the farm is that we have this REALLY big room downstairs that works great for a well equipped home gym. Yep, grandpa doesn’t have to share space with the elliptical when he visits.
And I mean, this space is AMAZING!
And yes, room for MY girly weights, kettlebells, roller, my favorite squishy medicine ball from Target and rollers.
Oh yeah, did I mention the pull up bar?
There’s a LOT of room in here, and there is PLENTY of room in each area/station that we can each comfortably do our own thing without being in the other person’s way. Mind you… we don’t talk when we work out. But we’re LEARNING how to workout in the same space at the same time. (I think we’re over the hard part.)
And… did I mention the name of the carpet? I could have SWORN he said it was called The Beast. Can that be any more perfect?
Plus – the views are beautiful and inspiring.
This is my view when I’m warming up on the bike. Did I mention how much I’m loving
his our spin bike? I go downstairs to warm up on the bike (yes, mentally employing my 20 minute trickery strategy), and I inevitably stay on for a WHILE, feeling so good, that I bust out several more exercises.
And the view from the “lifting” area.. (Side note: this was the first thing I ever gave the BF+ – waaaaaaaaaay back in the beginning of our courtship… Think what you will.)
I had lost my groove a bit from the move. But with kind tweets, suggested moves, and jumprope encouragement from Carla (Mizfit Online), Suzanne (Workout Nirvana), & Heather (Smashfit), I have FOUND MY GROOVE! (And it feels darn good.)
Granted, we have some stuff. He had stuff, I had stuff, and together we had more stuff.
But I think it’s the SPACE that has been so amazing for us. I know that this will be a well used room at the farm… probably even more than the kitchen.
I gotta give a big shout out to the Sports Authority – I was pining for a new swiss ball, pull up bar, and some racks – great prices, great service, and uber fast shipping!
And to anyone who might care… we’ve paid for every single thing in this room.
