Here is my recap of Dolphin Fitness (Amboy Road, SI): It was seamless. Two forms to fill out, no credit card info (I have nightmares of gym contracts past) and I was free to work out. It's a great gym. I mean, it's missing all the bells and whistles of some NYC gyms, but I do not need a blu-ray player in my elliptical machine. The main floor is all cardio machines. There are a few of everything so no one has to wait. Downstairs is the weight room. They seem to have all the machines I could possibly want to use and a nice free weight and dumbbell space. I am still working through my intimidation of weight rooms so I went down there right away to face my fears. I did some machines that I am familiar with and then some free weights. It was a Friday night so I was not surprised that it wasn't crowded but the clientele also seems mixed between genders and ages. All in all, I was definitely pleased with my Groupon purchase.
So, (as I was saying) I went to the gym yesterday morning. They are open 5 a.m. - 11 p.m. Monday through Friday which is perfect for me! I got there about 5:10, picked up my membership card and started on the elliptical. I did 35 minutes on that.

Then I ran for 3 minutes. My deal with myself was that I would try to do 2.5 minutes, so 3 was a victory. But it did not feel good. So I stopped.
|Oh treadmill, how I miss even you!|
Are you exhausted this week or is it just me?
I need some specific sciatica exercises? Anyone?
