Home Sweet Home Gym

For months, all the exercise equipment in our garage has been hidden behind walls of boxes, couches, tables, and chairs. But after a LOOOONG week of cleaning and moving, my favorite space in the house (other than the kitchen) is back.

With all the furniture and moving boxes cleared out of the garage, I was able to put down some new compressed rubber flooring to replace the old foam mats that covered three-quarters of the floor. (Horse stall mats from the old CrossFit Palo Alto flower shop location cover the rest.) Michelle was the first to test out the new floor the other night-- with double-unders and sit-ups.

Although I've missed the last couple of 5 a.m. classes at the gym (finding childcare for the wee hours of the morning ain't easy), I can once again duck into the garage to squeeze in some thrusters, rope climbs, box jumps, pull-ups, and kettlebell cleans and presses.

It's good to be home.
