ULTIMATE GYM - THE YIN & YANG OF IT!

Yes folks i know i have not updated my blog in a while and i do apologise for it.I've been through quite a bumpy ride lately which in turn made me feel a lil' burnt out in just about everything....including blogging.To make it simple , i'll just put it down in point form coz' i'm still not really in the mood to write a long story lah.

This is what went down;-
1) My dad got diagnosed for diabetes and hypertension which meant changes around the house.Visits to the doctors etc.He's stabalised now. *phew*

2) My dog that i had given to my friend to look after...ran away! It's been almost 1 1/2 months now. We tried looking for him but no luck.Been feeling really down coz' i do not know what his fate is...dead or alive?!

3) Tore my right bicep a bit while moving in another treadmill for the gym.Still hurts when i try to workout.Will have to lay off training for a while to let it fully heal otherwise it may rip further.

4) Hurt my lower back...AGAIN! ...... from undressing to take a bath!!! Freakin Hell!!!Can you imagine that??!! All the heavy training and i'm fine BUT taking off my pants to shower and i get injured!!!Still hurting eventhough it's been almost 1 month.No sudden moves now or it's gonna tweak again. Looks like the end of my competitive bodybuilding career..or whatever's left of it.

So as you can see, these chain of events have left me drained and upset.BUT.....life goes on right?!
Basically i tried channelling all these bad energy/mood into something more positive ie. my gym/business.And what do you know?! It worked out great!

All i did was re-arrange the quiptments around the gym to bump up everyone's mood ,brought in another treadmill (yup...the same one that had caused my bicep to tear) , interacted even more with my members and the next thing i know , i was swamped with more work coz' i had gotten so many new members....business seemed to have picked up quite considerably compared to prior months.
Anyway,just to show you guys what ULTIMATE GYM looks like on the inside after the re-arrangements....my home away from home ....and for many others too!

Hey Terry didn't the vendor delivered the treadmill right to your doorstep. These things are odd shaped and heavy man. Anyway, your place looks neat. I think it's bigger than your old place no? Ya imjuries are depressing- I busted my rotator cuffs 2 years back and 2 years later they are still busted.

Keep on blogging man.

They did but once inside i had to situate it to a location of choice and that's when it happened sigh! About your rotator cuff,there is someone professional that i know can help and he lives in Ampang Jaya.He's Australian and was formerly contracted by our Sports Council to treat the local athletes.Damn professional.Go to my forum www.armleg.com/probuffedbodies and look under Medical Ward.It has his particulars there.His name is Adam Martin btw.

I have heard of him- if I'm not mistaken he has been around for quite some time (since 10-15 yrs back?). Thanks for the tip!
