    I'm firing my useless flake of a trainer.... but still need someone to work out with. Let me know if you are interested. I'm in West LA, but will drive anywhere in LA Metro. May even join your gym if that's what it takes.

    I work out by myself at the 24 hour in Santa Monica on Ocean Park. I usually get there at 5:30 every weekday if that helps. We are not at the same level clearly but we probably do the same sort of things.

    Why not consider a home based program such as P90X? For the time involved in going to a distant gym, you can get a lot accomplished at home.

    I was simply pointing out an alternative. Did your input provide anything at all?

    Hey Sahem, have you ever thought about doing crossfit? The workouts are intense and so varied you'll never get bored. Also, the community is focused in on pushing themselves to do the workouts to the best of their ability and are supportive of helping you do the same for yourself, it makes for a great environment to work out in and push yourself just that much harder to achieve your goals.... I know, I sound like a salesman. But I really do enjoy it, I really do recommend it. Below are a few gym's (aka boxes) you can check out:

    In Santa Monica, its probably the closest one to you.

    In West Hollywood, its a very competitive gym, known on a national level within the crossfit community. Its got a large, top quality facility.

    Wow. That place is insanely packed at that time. Did they finish remodeling? I heard it's a Super Sport now.

    That's awesome. I used to go to that one years ago, when I lived in the area. But lately, I was thinking about going there after work. Then I realized they upgraded to Super Sport. Also realized how bad parking is there. icon_confused.gif
