I am here to pump *clap* me up!

I used to play basketball a couple of times per week for fun and exercise. Unfortunately, I have been plagued my entire life with knee issues. I eventually got tire of my knee pain and I gave up on the basketball. While the knee pain did improve, unfortunately my fitness level has been in a steady decline. I find myself using the word usestacould a lot. Ex. "I usestacould do more than 2 pull-ups." or "I usestacould run more than 10 feet without getting winded."

I decided to do something about it so I joined a gym. Now I'm no stranger to gym memberships. I am however a stranger to making good use of my gym membership. One of the issues I've always had is finding a good time to go. So I found a gym on my way to work. I get up a little earlier and I hit the gym on my way to work. I shower there and then I'm on my way.
My next issue has always been figuring out what to do when I get to the gym. I go rather early, and I'm tired so I don't want to think about what to do. So I end up lifting weights for a while, then running on a treadmill. This can get dull and I tend to bore easily.

My brother introduced me to GPP (General Physical Preparedness) These guys have quite a few gyms around and a pretty good community. But the best thing is, they come up with a different workout to do every day and list it on their website, right on the home page! No more thinking! I just do what they tell me to. They even have links to YouTube videos of how to do the exercises.

I've only done a couple workouts so far, but I'm definitely feeling it. I'm hoping it all goes well, I'll try to update later with my progress, no promises as I don't post all that often, but maybe if I get all sexy, I'll post some pics (yeah, that'll happen).
