Transformathon entrants: anyone in the Euless/bedford area that would like to train?

I go to 24 Hour fitness off 121/Murphy. If any of you guys need some guidance and a training partner, holler. I know some are trying to add weight, other to drop. I'd be more than happy to train with whomever and help with getting to your goals.

BRIAN, THIS APPLIES TO YOU SPECIFICALLY!!!

How much is it a month? I heard you have to sign a contract - something like $85 is due at signing and its 35 a month? Is this accurate?

I would definately prefer working at 24hr.

I would love the advice, but the only thing holding me back right now is the fees. I'm a cheap fuck ;p

if you guys want to get a membership at 24 hour, talk to lanny9e on here. he is a sales counselor and can help you.

my suggestion....go in, get the talk, tell them you are interested but the sign up fee's are too high. they will call you back a few times, just ask about the sign up fee's. around the end of the month(close out day), they will drop or waive the sign up fee's.

We have been working out at his apartment complex. They have free weights and almost everything 24hr would have but no bench press, which sucks imo, but its free. If its only $30 i think its worth it to have someone help you that has the experience, and also a bench press..

I assure you, unless they have a FULL gym, once you start getting into it a typical apartment gym... machines or no... won't cut it.

I talked to my sales manager and he said I could do a group rate if a couple of you guys sign up. For those that are interested PM me or just say so on here.

Don, do they have visitor's passes up there? I wouldn't mind meeting up sometime to get some pointer's and maybe learn some new exercises I can do at home. Since I lift at home, I'm not really interested in a membership unless Lanny can get a group rate that's just too good to pass up.

Do we have anyone on here that works for L.A. or Gold's? Each one is about two minutes from the house. If the price was right, I'd sign up at one of those just to have it.

Don,
If you can get a few guest passes I'd like to come up there once or twice (evening or weekend morning?). I won't be changing gyms (mostly b/c I'm in Arlington, not HEB) but it's always nice to lift with someone who is serious about what they're doing.

Does L.A. do passes? I'd partner up with you a few times, if they do. I work in Grapevine and come home 157 to Green Oaks, so it would be on the way home.

They probably do. I'll look into it this evening and let you know.

I am going to answer as many of the questions as I can here. For anyone who wants to work out with Don (including you Al) through the end of Feb. Don can have a quest with him for free, so I would take advantage of that. On the group rate, I put in the request and should know more in the next day or 2. More than likely it will be no initiation, no processing and 29 a month for one club. The same no initiation, no processing and 39 a month for all club. I have another group that I am doing right now that I can use for those that want to join in the next day or 2 and if it makes it easier can come out to you to go over everything. If you have any specific questions give me a shout as I will be at the club all day today and tomorrow. 972-556-1316. Just ask for Jason.

Like Lanny said, you can get a guest pass for a while. I'll be more than happy to work out with anyone and if I can give pointers or show you some change ups in your routine, I'd be more than happy.

AL, I was under the impression that anyone with a 24 Hour Sport could go to any other 24 Hour Sport no hassle...

3 weeks ago I changed my chest routine, and went with a bit more advanced set of exercises. I am loving the change, since I'm developing a lot more fullness in the center pecs and already increased by original first set of reps by 2.

Stroked71bowtie, come on a weekend and do legs with me... You'll hate life afterwards, but you'd enjoy the intensity.

I'll be up at the gym around 5:30 today doing chest and triceps. Hollaaaaaaaa...

I love leg days

I haven't had a good one in a while due to some knee pain a while ago... but you give me a day and I'm there. I think I'm booked this weekend, but what about next? (3/1/08)

See, Saturday is an anomaly... My roommate and I go to the gym pretty much whenever we're both on the same page and say "yeah... let's do this" and leave. So it can vary from 11 am to 4 pm, LOL!

Let me know what's good for you and I'll be there.

Cool. I'm still interested. I've taken off work until Wednesday to paint the paneling in our living room and finish the guest bedroom I started almost a year ago. When I get this crap done, I'll get with you so we can figure something out.
