I joined back to my old gym

I've signed up for AquaArena, my old gym. Its just 10 minutes drive from my place. 5 minutes really but there's a few traffic lights along the way.

Its run by the YMCA (heh heh) I should have asked for a discount. And its well run. There are no dodgy sneaky contracts they get you to sign up for unlike the smaller independent gyms like Equi1ibrium. Those gyms are really shonky operators - typically they try and lock you into a 12 month auto-renewable contract which is hard to escape from. (Meaning - the contract auto-renews itself for another 12 month unless you jump thru several hoops to cancel).

I've been geared towards a mainly aerobic and flexibility program for the next two months. Looking forward to going for the pilate classes and limbering up.

Inherent stiffness in the body runs through my family bloodline. I also never seriously stretched much after exercising. So I've got a bit of a biological uphill climb to do.

Hi. I remember you used to invest. What happened to that activity?

I took a breather. I actually cleared out of the market in July 2007 but I'm not the only decision maker so my opinion was discounted sadly. Anyways in my humble opinion the whole system is rotten and corrupt. Best to stick to commodities in these times. Listen to Jim Rogers, he makes a lot of sense. But a lot of people want to prop up the system prop. So its got a lot of momentum going for it, or should we say hot air. I was also very disappointed that Chip Goodyear was stepped down from Temasek. That's all I'm going to say about that.
