it's a seasoning. mike loves it.

intervals are a great way to train. you can acutally burn more calories with intervals than just constantly running.

From what I've read lately a lot of trainers are leaning toward interval training instead of maintaining one steady pace the whole time. So, you can always build up to running for a longer period of time, like start one minute jog/ 2 minutes walk then go to 2 min jog/ 2 min walk then 3 min jog/ 1 min walk etc... also that is a good way for you to vary your workout and gives you some built in goals to reach.

The Tony's and the intervals sounds good... I am going to start there... You know what will help, if you guys have time...will you hold me accountable. I am sure the first few days you ask me..."Alex, have you worked out?" and I may say No, will get tiring to me because I will feel like I am letting you all down, then I will really get it together...or maybe we can be accountability partners and keep track of each other's progresshuh.gif I don't have anyone here I want to work out with so that will be close enough. What do you say?

Ok, let's hold each other accountable... So I will be 100% honest, I won't be working out until Monday...I will try and go when I get off, depending on how I feel at 7 am... What about you?

I despise running, but have been pushing myself to run intervals 3-4 times a week along with mixing in some eliptical & stationary bike. As much as I hate it, it seems that running is the only think that moves the scale for me. I'm on board to be a motivation buddy if you need one! My FI leaves for work at 6am, so it forces me to get out of bed & hit the gym early!

[quote= I played college basketball and was very disciplined

 

What about finding a basketball team/class to join? maybe once a week to start? I played soccer through college and haven't played in years and recently found a soccer class to get me back in shape so that I can join a team...it was really hard to get motivated at first, but once I go out there, the love of the game came back tenfold and made it easier for me to continue.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
