I am curious to know if there are any workout facilities around the island? I would appreciate any information anyone could relay.

Oscar's Gym north end of town, near the hand ferry. Big white building.

We must think alike, friend! Does anyone know if they have eliptical trainers there...weird question...but it is worth a shot!

We work out at home, (love the elipitical trainers) - in AC though, try Kayaking, that'll give you a damn good work out, don't worry about the gym....

What can I say...my husband is a gym rat. We kayaked AND snorkeled AND ran AND hiked AND danced/discoed AND ....have I left anything out? AND went to the gym.

Okay, Trina...I'm impressed!

Do you remember if the gym had any eliptical trainers? Thought you'd be the right person to ask if you've been there recently!

Thanks!

Don't think they have any eliptical trainers there. More strength training stuff. They are good if you are really into weights, otherwise, I'd say take a long walk on the beach all the way up past the hand ferry.

P.S. I love eliptical trainers - lots of bang for the buck in my book.

They dont'have a lot of the newer style equipment, such as elliptical. Mostly Nautilus style and free weigths. Nothing too fancy. But fun anyway.

For cardio try biking or running on the beach. [Linked Image] Oscar's has plenty of rusty free weights and cable/nautilus type machines.

If you seriously want to lift weights,you will find all the basics +. Maybe a big guy to spot you. However, there is absolutely NO cardio equipement from the last 2 decades. Just a couple of rusted exer-cycles pushed off to the side. No "womens section upstairs" like we read somewhere.

I recommend seeing the island on some crumby old bikes. Its fun and good exercise.
