The Dungeon

i love my gym. but there are things in it i have common sense enough to avoid. like this thing for example...













and there are certain places in it that i avoid all together... like the steam room (icky) and the child care area (noisy).....

my gym is divided into sections. there is the cardio section (we know each other well) and a "fluffy weight area" with all the pulley machine things. it was only recently that i even ventured into this area. ya know... it looks like this....












but there is another part of the gym. i like to call it the dungeon. its
in the basement. and its full of scary things like big sweaty muscle-headed men that grunt and drop the weights dramatically between sets. and the weights dont have pullies... they are just weights... and not the cute pink and blue and yellow vinyl covered ones they have upstairs like this...










they are like just METAL. ugly black and silver metal. like this....









and the machines have poles for you to put on your own huge discs of weights....











its really quite terrifying. but i have found that the fluffy upstairs weight area with pink dumbbells that only go up to 10 lb just doesnt cut it. so i have to go to the dungeon. i slap on my game face and suck it up... and do it.

I am obsessed with the "dungeon" area of my gym. I feel so badass when I go in there, especially if I can lift more weights than some of the guys in there - that gives me SUCH a high :)

It is so funny that everyone is so different! I stay when I was going to the gym I stayed CLEAR of the dungeon! I am still nervous of that area! However, the step machine was one of my favs! It was an easy way to get that BURN feeling you are looking for!

I Totally Stay Clear away from that Stair thing too, Looks Ruff lol.. Maybe some day lol.."Meat Head" Section As i like to call it, Inst in any basement but its off to the side some where i have yet to go in that area, I refuse to way to scary for my liking lol.. Maybe some day for now the other machines they have available in other parts of the gym are doing it for me :) So Until then im safe lol
