Let's Get Physical!

A big part of my life these days is working out. If you had asked me 3-4 years ago if I would be waking up at 4:30 every day to work out, I would have laughed in your face! Fortunately, I have made several life changes and now being healthy and in shape is a big priority in my life. So yes, I get up at 4:30 almost every day to work out.

My local YMCA is a happening place at 4:50am (that's when the doors open). When I first started going in the mornings, I was a little intimidated. The place is full of "regulars"! Now, I'm one of those regulars. Since I see these people most mornings, I have nick-named them. It's a fun game and makes running on the treadmill or elliptical a little more entertaining that early in the morning.

Of course, you always have the girls that look like this at 5:15 am:
Seriously, you woke up this early and put on a full face of make-up? Who are you??

And you can't forget the guys that think they look like this:
They are always entertaining to watch. Here are some of the other people I secretly (or not so secretly) spy on while I'm working out:

Blue shirt guy- does he only have 1 shirt? Makes me want to get him a new one.
Row machine guy- always on the row machine. Mix it up a little dude!
Singing rocker dude- he has fun on the spin bike. I wonder what he listens to on his iPod?
hat guy- why does he always wear a ski cap? Interesting...
Jeans and crocs guy- that can't be comfortable to work out in
'80 woman- seriously, her workout gear is straight from 1986

I'm sure there are others, but that's all I've got for now. If I remember some more, I'll re-post. What about you? Any interesting characters where you work out?
