It’s strange how one can pass by something beautiful, almost every day, without really seeing, or noticing it. Yesterday, as I was just about to swipe my access card, at the gym here, I looked at the door I was about to enter, and thought, “How gorgeous is that!” The three glass panes are so lovely. I passed my iPhone to hubby, as he was much more likely to get the photo straight, so the reflection which you see is his.
I love this gym. There’s no-one there under fifty, and some of the people may even be in their eighties, but they are all having fun, keeping fit, and socialising like crazy. There was a Zumba class going on in one of the studios, several tennis games in progress just across the way, and a steady stream of golf carts passing the window. The best bit for me, was when the manager called across, “I don’t know what you’re doing, but keep doing it, because you’re looking great.” What an energy booster! 🙂
To see more Thursday’s windows, visit Sandra’s blog.
Those doors are so enticing AD and the gym sounds great – you must be the “baby” there 😉
Thanks, optie. Yes it’s really nice not to be the oldest, anyway. 🙂
I feel the same way… amazement! When I notice something that was before my eyes for a long time… Wonderment comes to mind too. 😉
It’s a reminder to always keep our eyes peeled, for wondrous things which cross our path. 🙂
How nice to find a gym where there are NOT a lot of young healthy buff people making you really feel your age!! Sounds like a fun and lively group of people.
Yes, you’re so right about that. I was even voted gymer of the month last year, which would never happen at our Virgin Active gym back home. 🙂
My thoughts exactly! I am one of the oldest in my Yoga group!
Good for you!!
I love the gym too. I just wish I have more time to be fit. Great post.
Thanks so much. 🙂
Sounds like my kinda gym! What a fab door too 🙂
Thanks for visiting. 🙂
It is gorgeous.
Absolutely. I think you’d enjoy working out there, Tilly. 🙂
I believe I would 🙂
What a great start to the day ! Looking good all You and the Windows 😉
Thanks, poppytump. Love your name, by the way. 🙂
That gym sounds wonderful.
Yes, I’m very lucky to have it right here. 🙂
Pretty posh looking gym you have there. I’m afraid that wouldn’t leave me with much excuse to goof off or be too lazy to work out…. 😦
You should just see the locker rooms! 🙂 It is a wonderful place to be sure.
Hi AD 😀
Hi there. 😀
That is a gorgeous door, AD! That sounds like a wonderful gym for daily workout!
Thanks, Amy. Yes it’s a really great gym. I love it. 🙂
Nice (means “awesome” 😉 ) 😀
I cannot deny – I have 50 plus door images just waiting to post – one for the winter months
That;s a lot of doors, Scott. 🙂
That must be one fancy gym that you go to if it has doors like that 🙂
Keep doing what you’re doing photo wise as well! 😉
Well, it’s the nicest gym I’ve ever been in, so I’m very happy. 🙂
I have to travel too far to get to a gym…isn’t that a great excuse. Love the windows, thanks to hubby.
Hubby says, “Thanks.” 🙂 It was the gym that made us decide to buy here.
I love Iphone photography! 🙂
Me too. It’s so easy, and very convenient not having to carry a camera around all the time. 🙂
very good post , Lovely door and a magnificent manager I have never doubted your choice Have a nice day!
Hahaha. Thanks, Stefan. 🙂
that must be a very posh gym to have doors like that!
Yes, but it’s not in the least snobby. I love it there; everyone is so friendly.
Tis a beautiful door indeed. Meanwhile, keep doing what you’re doing! 🙂
Hahaha. Yes I will, Frank. 🙂
Very inviting, welcoming and…beautiful!
Yes it is, Esenga. I love it there. 🙂
Stunning door…I love doors with glass in them…You are so lucky to have a gym near you…I only miss iy when the weather is bad and I think it’s going to be bad for a while!
Thanks, Lisa. Yes it’s a great gym. I really miss it when we’re back in SA.
Lovely door and a magnificent manager.
Indeed. He gets my vote. 🙂
I have to say, as good as it sounds being with people of your own age, I doubt that that is something I will ever do – regardless of if I’m able to, which, at the moment looks extremely unlikely!!
I can see myself growing old right here in this house, reading my books, never seeing anybody unless I absolutely HAVE to 😉
Still, that gym door does look nice ;D
Thanks, 68. It’s great having a community to socialise with when you feel like it, but it’s also nice to spend time away from everyone occasionally. 🙂
All gyms should be like that!
That would be very nice. 🙂
Now that’s my kind of gym – hate those places where you have to wear a designer leotard just to get in!
You’d love this one then. You can wear anything you please, and no-one will bat an eyelid. 🙂
Lovely door to a place I try to avoid… walking in the bush is enough exercise for me thanks very much… but glad you enjoy… is there anywhere there that you can play piano… maybe some producer discovers you…
Just around the corner is the club house, and I play in the Sunset Lounge when I feel like it. Tonight I may “tinkle” the ivories for a while. I have had requests, and I don’t like to disappoint. 🙂
Wonderful! Wish I had a gym down there….Just by the way hubby is standing I can tell that his ears are well groomed. 🙂
Hehehe. You’re very perceptive, Suzanne. 😆
A great way to start your workout! 🙂
Yes it is. It’s great to have a beautiful entrance foyer. 🙂
Really beautiful. Thank you for sharing it. And congratulations on your great report from the gym manager.
Thanks so much, Sandra. Glad you enjoyed. 🙂
Sounds like a terrific place to not only keep fit but keep in touch with your neighbors!
That gym manager has a good eye. 😉 😀
Yes it is, and we have quite a few very charming gents here too. You’d fit in well. 🙂
