gym

Are there any readers/bloggers/wallflowers out there who are ex-gymnasts or wannabe gymnasts? I need a buddy to go to an adult drop in with, or maybe take a class or two. Found a place called Twisters Gym where we can drop in for an hour and a half for $10 (Sat 12-1:30) in Mountain View. I will teach you cool stuff if you'll come with me. Last time I went to an open gym in Daly City I was working out all by my lonesome among preteen break dancers. So that kinda sucked.

Incidentally, Twisters has a drop-in rock climbing for $10 for a whole day pass which is quite a deal. They say on their site: We offer top-rope climbing to whoever knows how to tie a double figure eight follow through, belay with a gri-gri, and perform the safety checks for these systems. [$10 day pass]

Stanford might also have some adult drop in classes for I think $15, which seems to include instruction from some comp sci grad student.

C'mon, anyone?

Will you teach me how to use the pommelhorse? I would like to learn how to do those scissor like moves with my legs.

It's not without reason that my parents didn't name me Grace. My brothers can attest to that.

OK one thing I know nothing about is pommel horse. All I know is that sitting on one of them handles hurts like a bitch.

I'd go with you if I lived out there...
I've been looking for people to do stuff with (other than biking) I've been dying to go indoor rock climbing.
I have my belay certificate, i can tie the figure 8 knot and I know all the safety checks...
I just haven't climbed in years.
Anyone in Vancouver that wants to come out and play?

It's true my sis wasn't named Grace. Her name is what it is, only because "Clumsy" didn't sound nice with our last name. Hahaha ...

Van, can you show us guys how to get those baseball-shaped biceps just like those dudes who are doing the rings in the Olympics? I want that. I NEED THAT.

In any case, sounds cool. I'd be interested and have to see if I can work that into my schedule.
