My name is Timothy Redfearn, but everyone just calls me Tim, and I am one of the New Paltz bloggers for the 2011-2012 school year. That means I’ll be posting blogs about things that are going on around New Paltz and this is my FIRST ONE, so I hope you like it.
Just so you have an idea of who I am, I am a senior here at SUNY New Paltz majoring in General Business with a minor in History. I’ve been at New Paltz my whole college career and I absolutely love it here.
Now to the fun part!!
Every year I tell myself that I am going to go to the gym and workout. Like always, I found myself getting too busy or just being real lazy. So, In an attempt to break this bad habit, I set a goal for myself to ACTUALLY go to the gym two times a week this year. Today was the first day of gym time for me, so I thought I’d share it with you all.
First, let me tell you a little about the gym. The gym here at New Paltz is called the Athletic and Wellness Center, aka AWC, and it is real nice. They have two fully equipped weight/cardio rooms. Above those workout rooms, there is a one ninth of a mile elevated track. There’s also a dance studio, two basket ball courts, and an indoor pool.
Below are some pictures of the gym:
Anyway, I really needed this workout after not spending much time in a gym all summer. I worked out for about an hour and let me tell I was so tired afterward. I used the treadmills, the bikes, and I did a little weight lifting. I will definitely be feeling this in the morning. Next week their Zumba classes are going to start up and I am really EXCITED!!!
Here’s a link to the AWC website if you want to learn more about it: http://www.newpaltz.edu/recreation/awc.html
Well that’s all for now. Please leave some comments below and let me know what you thought of my FIRST blog or if there is something specific you would like to blog about in the future.
