  • the on post gym has a nursery, but i havent used it because they want you to fill out an application and all that jive and i didnt feel like doing all of that just for 2 hours of gym time. i work out at home, everything i do at the gym i can do in the comfort of my home. i usually wait to work out when i put them to bed for the night. i do push ups (50), lunges (60), squats (60), leg lifts (60), sit ups (60), obliques (60), fire hydrants (60), hip raisers (60), i have a 10 minute solutions pilates dvd that comes with a resistance band and 5 ten miute pilates work outs, i have comcast on demand and they have free excercise tv that has different trainers and differnet routines. i also run around my neighborhood for 20 mins of cardio. i do a lot, because i like to work out! you can PM me if you want to know some of the routines i do or for more information.

  • I just can't see myself spending $50 a month on a gym when I am no longer working. I would much rather spend the money on diapers and wipes
