This past week, Chris (bf) and I decided to switch out of our basement sweatbox gym in order to begin training at the Boston Sports Club at Wellington Circle.
This BSC location includes cardio equipment, strength equipment, a basketball court, pool, yoga studio (it’s beautiful), spin studio (also beautiful), group exercise classes (including paying extra for barre classes or TRX/UXF), babysitting for the littles (if you’re into that whole baby thing), and towel service! Its amazing. They even have the elusive Woodway treadmill! Connected to the gym is a juice bar and cafe offering juices, protein drinks, as well as a sundry of other small snacks.
Sunday- 4 mile run, 30 min weights
Monday- 3 mile run, 25 min bike, 15 min elliptical, 30 min weights
Tuesday- 3 mile run, 1 hour cardio sculpt
Wed-off- New Years Day!
Thur- 4 mile run, 20 min weights, 25 min swim
Fri- Spin class (on deck)
Saturday- Yoga, 6 mile run (on deck)
When Chris and I got home, I made sure to foam roll for a few minutes before taking a shower. Never heard of a foam roller? Well its circular chunk of foam that you roll your body over, in order to get the kinks out. Its the single most important piece of exercise and recovery equipment that you will ever own, in order to prevent injury. You can buy one here, at Amazon…for $18.00. Yes, it sounds a little kooky to pay that much for foam, but I’m telling you, its worth it. Shape.com can officially tell you why you need it and how it helps both. Go ahead, click on this article! It doesn’t bite. I’ll even give you a photo of one of my legs foam rolling away (with a beautiful Zensah compression sleeve).
