Spartanburg,SC (I-Newswire) October 18, 2012 - A deer tried to break his way into a Spartanburg gym and it was all captured on a surveillance camera.The deer was seen jumping into the doors of Anytime Fitness on Fernwood Glendale Road.
It jumped right into one of the glass doors then tried the other one, but still wasn't able to get inside. The deer came back for another attempt but eventually gave up and scampered off.
"It was a very loud boom," said Mackenzie Mathis, the gym's manager. "My first thought and fear was that a machine had fallen over and that somebody was hurt, but we didn't hear anybody so I was a little comforted by that."Mathis said there didn't appear to be any damage to the building and the deer also appeared to be just fine.
A Gold's Gym location filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy:
The owner of the Gold's Gym on Industrial Drive filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last week, but plans to keep the gym open.
The largest debt of G.G.M. Fitness Management, the corporation that owns the gym, is $500,000 in rent in arrears to its landlord, according to public filings.
The landlord had started an eviction proceeding on the gym, and G.G.M. was due in court Monday, according to the filings. The business has 34 employees and $6,800 in weekly payroll.
Crossfit: The New Fitness Craze
It's pretty much well-known that the obesity rates in America, and especially here in the Mountain State, have reached new heights. With people leading busy lives in today's world, let's face it- it's hard to get to the gym. But, a new fitness craze is taking the nation by storm and might be helping to fix that problem.
It's called Crossfit.
"Constantly varied, high intensity, functional movements- is basically what it is," said Darcy Thompson, a personal trainer and Crossfit competitor.
Translation? A workout that uses everyday motions, with a little extra kick, to get you in shape.
Crossfit enthusiast and Personal Trainer Jon Groves said, "If you need to pick up a box at work, or if you need to carry stuff up and down steps all day long, moving furniture or whatever, Crossfit's going to get you in shape to do that."
Crossfit had previously been used to help train firefighters and policemen. When the Crossfit website launched in 2001, the masses started to pick it up. The competitions are now aired on national TV.
So, what's the appeal? For starters, it works different parts of your body each workout and does so in a much shorter amount of time than a regular gym visit. So, those of you who say there's no time for the gym, can't use that excuse anymore.
Thompson said, "You can completely exhaust yourself within twenty minutes and then get the same workout that you would do sitting around on a treadmill for an hour."
Darcy made it all the way to the regional competition in Washington, D.C last year. She's training to do it again this year. If she makes top three, she'll compete in Nationals-the competitions aired on the likes of ESPN and ESPN2.
So, why does she keep going back for more? "It's addicting. I mean, there's always something you can get better at, there's always something when you leave the Crossfit place, that you're like 'I think I can do that better.' "
Another reason people love it: It's not just for top athletes. It's a sort of one-size-fits-all deal. Each workout can be modified, so that anyone of any age or skill level, can do it.
When John Groves first started, he had to modify everything. In the end, he not only lost an extra forty pounds doing Crossfit, he became a personal trainer.
"You try, and you don't think you can do a lot of the stuff, but then you do it, and you get some sort of self-satisfaction,like 'oh, I really can do this,'" said Groves.
