    It's fun to go to the gym alone, focus on your goal, and get it done.
    - Sometimes it's great to meet up and train with someone that has just as much passion as you.
    - Nothing is better than a training partner/group that holds each other accountable and motivate each other to make progress.
    - It makes those rest periods between sets much more fun.
    - I've also felt awkward walking into the Group Exercise Classes and not knowing anyone there (usually there are regulars - you know?).
    - Even if you don't train together it's nice to have someone that's on the same page (and a part of the same gym) as you.

    So I decided to put out a call to all NYSC members that are Real Jock members to make that connection. I'm sure this can work [::crosses fingers::] icon_exclaim.gif

    What NYSC location(s) & times do you typically go? How often? Whats your goal/focus? Do you take any of the group exercise classes? Are you looking for Training Buddies? Anything else you would like to add...


    Someone once said that people on RJ like "real life meetups". This would be a great chance to do just that. We should gang up and take over an exercise class lol. Imagine 10 RJ members in RJ shirts during Hip Hop Funk lol.

    1) 16th/8ave or 7th ave/10th st - usually 9-11pm
    I like the location, it's easy to get to, and easy to get home from 16th/8th since the L train is right there (yes I live in the Bronx . . .) I just like 7/10th cause it's 24 hours... so if I'm running late, I have no excuse to miss a workout hahaha.

    2) 5-6 times a week (Weights 5 times, Cardio 2 times)

    3) Get stronger and cut some fat, I can always put on weight over the winter haha.

    4) No... not yet, but Urban Rebounding sounds interesting. I want to take the Dance, Flexibility, Yoga, and Fighting Excercise classes though... nothing better than a homo that can defend himself while in downward facing dog

    5) YES I want a training buddy so bad, it'll give me something better to look than my sneakers lol

    6... I'm really lookin for people around my age (18-25) but older than 25 is not a problem at all. Experience is never a flaw.
