The Beginning: Getting in the Workout Groove

Steven DeAngelisContributor IFebruary 6, 2008

Whether you have a couple of these little guys bolted to the wall in the basement or a major piece of equipment, you’re in good shape to train.

Personally I enjoy the short, weekly workouts that focus mainly around strengthening and feeling good. After starting to climb regularly just a few months back I found that I was gaining strength exponentially. Then I began hitting a wall (no pun intended) and the ordinary trip to the climbing wall was becoming insufficient.
If you're anything like me you probably do not enjoy the Lifetime Fitness workout. It gets a little to pricey without enough payoff for me. I like to go home after work and workout when I please. Stopping occasionally to watch 5 or 10 minutes of a game that's on TV. In fact I love to throw 20 push-ups or pull-ups in during the commercials. In the end, a workout is a workout.
Once one realizes that life after college is not the same, taking small strides to improve your fitness goes along was.
