Ok, I've decided to start a new journal. Last year I started off with Mastover and got some incredible results (thanks Aram!). After getting off to a blazing start, I wound up moving back to Maui from North Carolina during the summer and it threw everything off from working out to eating. I spent the summer traveling around the U.S. doing my outdoor stuff (whitewater kayaking, camping, etc.) then got back to Maui. I have my own gym equipment, but it was in storage for several months as I built a new house. To those who know me, I hate going to regular gyms for several reason, so I put it off for a few more months before dragging myself down to a local gym. My house was completed in mid-December and after the usual confusion of moving and the holidays with my kids coming to visit me, I was finally able to get the gym put together after the holidays. I'll be posting some pictures of the gym here soon, but I've modeled my gym somewhat after John Stone's (thanks John!). The centerpiece is the incredible Titan machine with all the options. I got the last one before Fitcore ran into their problems with Szultka (the manufacturer of the Titan). Too bad, the Titan is a great product. I've added onto that with a full set of Cap dumbbells (5-100 lbs.), full set of olympic weights and bars, recumbent bike, roman chair, pull up/dip station, and a complete set of various resistance bands. For the flooring, I went to a local feed store and bought a bunch of 1" thick rubber stall mats (4 X 6). They were $45 apiece, but are well worth it. I'm hoping to add some Crossfit equipment in the near future to round out my gym (rings, boxes, kettleballs, etc.) I'll be posting my stats, routines, and nutrition info here as often as I can. Feel free to make any comments or ask any questions. I'm semi-retired and stuck on an island, so I've got time on my hands.
