Elite Health and Fitness Club. It sounds pretty fancy right? It was one of 3 gyms to choose from here. The other two were Anytime (Anycrime) Fitness and the local rec center. I guess the main reason I settled on Elite was because it has some endless pools (I've used them once), and the classes were included in the monthly price (I've gone to one), and it was cheaper than Anytime and significantly nicer than the rec center.
That being said...it's not that nice. It caters a lot to the older people in the community - physical therapy, been around the longest here, etc. Which is actually nice. My later morning time of going there offers very little competition with any of the machines I want to use. Lots of gray hairs counting laps around the 12 laps/mile track and using some of the "state of art" equipment :) This is what you see after you walk through the foyer and pass the check in stand. Always lots of older people hanging out at these tables for whatever reason. The tiny door you can see on the left leads to weight room. The next two pictures are of the equipment in the center of the track. Weight machines to the left...cardio equipment to the right.
I shouldn't be such a gym trash talker. I just have been very spoiled by some other gyms in Utah. Where there's actually water pressure in the showers. And the water warms up before 5 minutes. And there's towels if you forget one. But it really has gotten the job done. There are a few treadmills that work great and there's enough machines and free weights to do just about anything I need/want to do. I am just BEYOND excited for the huge new rec center they are building. There was a sweet video of what it's going to look like but it's not on the website anymore. Dang. But it looks awesome. I hope it is as awesome as it sounds. It will have indoor tennis courts and volleyball courts and a lap swimming pool and racquetball and batting cages and all manner of things. All in one spot. (Right now the racquetball court is in the rec center...pay separate, and the lap pool is in the high school...pay separate, and only open during the school year). It's not supposed to be open till next Spring. Hopefully it will be on time because I am seriously counting down the days. It's my shining light here in Williston. How pathetic is that? Maybe a lot, but all the same...I am looking forward to it.
And while we are on a little tour of some things in Williston - here's a piece of our classy movie theater. We had a great double date tonight with the Andelin's - Buffalo Wild Wings - just opened...and then the movie Now You See Me. Which was pretty good. Let these pics speak for themselves...
It only costs $10 a ticket to use this gem. Who's coming to visit? Just kidding. Remember my positive Williston post? Me too. I still like this place. There's just some crazy stuff here.
