Greetings! My name is Monica. I live in Springfield. I'm looking for an exercise buddy. I am currently a member of Golds Gym in the Bradlick shopping center. I am finding it harder and harder to get to the gym...purely not inspired. :( I've been thinking about taking water aerobics classes. Probably at the Rec center in Falls Church. I've also looked into joining XSport Fitness in Merrified because they have a pool and are open 24/7. Is there anyone in my area who is interested in exercising together?

Mount Vernon Trail is awesome. It starts in Rosslyn near Key Bridge and ends at Mount Vernon. I love being near the Potomac and seeing the monuments. Theodore Roosevelt Island is off the trail and you get to see the bellies of the planes as they leave and arrive at Reagan Airport.

Another trip I want to make, probably by bike, is to start at Gravelly Point just north of DCA and ride into DC on the 14th Street Bridge.

I'm very happy the weather is cooperating with my plans to be outdoors. And I'm really ready for Cherry Blossoms!

One day at a time.

Welcome, Brie,

I live in Alexandria and work in Rosslyn and have a desk job. Thankfully my office building has a small gym in the basement and I use that at lunch frequently.

Other options: What time do you get off work? The Mount Vernon Trail is great for biking/walking/running and this snow is ending...soon...ready for spring!

Other thoughts: In my last office there were stairs that I frequently did during coffee breaks.

You are definitely in a good area to be active and have everything you need to live a healthy lifestyle. Let me know if you want to chat off Spark and I can give you more ideas.

Best wishes,
Carrie

One day at a time.

Hi Everyone,

I currently live in Crystal City (new to the area), and I need people to help support me in my efforts to be healthy. I don't have very much weight that I need to lose, but I do need to be exercising regularly, etc. I can't seem to find an exercise routine that I can stick to. I currently work in healthcare policy and I spend all day sitting at my desk. The gym in my building is always packed (and the equipment is sub-standard), and when I joined a gym I never went. I will be 30 next February, and I would like to start the next decade of my life in better shape than I am now!

Thanks for reading my post!
