Diamondback Wildwood Deluxe Bike Review

diamondback-wildwood-reviewThis is a review of the Diamondback Wildwood Deluxe.

Having not owned a bike in over 15 years, I wasn’t prepared for the changes in the bike industry. Last time I went to buy a bike there were two choices: 1) 10 speed and 2) Non-10 speed. Oh, times have changed.

You can now choose among ten different varieties of bikes. Comfort, road, racing, etc. It really does boggle the mind. My main motivation for getting a bike was to exercise, so I wanted to get something that was comfortable. The Diamondback Wildwood Deluxe was perfect for me.

Edward Jones Family YMCA Review

edward-jones-family-ymca-review-photoThis is a review of the Edward Jones Family YMCA.

Located in Maryland Heights, MO, the Edward Jones YMCA is named after the company that acts as the primary sponsor. It is a large YMCA by St. Louis standards and features a gym, swimming pool, weight room and cardio facilities.

I think the location is about 10 years old and it is starting to show some age. The ceiling in the hall to the weight room has issues during rain and the lockers are starting to form rust, but it is well maintained.

Precor AMT 100i Review

precor-amt-100i-review-photoThis is a review of the cardio machine Precor AMT 100i.

I work out everyday with at least 30 minutes of cardio. The number one machine these days for me is the Precor AMT 100i. When I describe it to people I tell them it is a like running without pressure on your knees.

AMT stands for Adaptive Motion Trainer, which is a fancy way of saying it takes your natural gait and removes the force your body creates. The flow of moving your legs and arms is controlled so that the motion is continuous.
