Printing House Gym: New York's Best Kept Secret; Assuming This Does Not Reach The Masses
Most people in New York with interest in staying in shape head toward some of the more well known, flashy gyms in the city magnified due to their impressive list of celebrity clientel. Having seen the interior and exterior of numerous gyms in the jungle, I can confidently say that fitness-conscious gym goers have no idea what they are missing with the Printing House Gym on 421 Hudson Street. When entering from the secluded doorway, who knew what an incredible maze of fitness opportunity lay ahead. The gym contains a boxing ring, 3 floors of endless workout equipment, 4 locker rooms, multiple squash courts, an ariel rooftop view of the entire city, and my personal favorite- a pool with a continuous swim. The gym is located on the 9th floor above an apartment, giving an incredible scenic view at such a height that the city sounds and pollution are almost completely filtered. In NYC, fresh air and the sounds of silence are rare. Yet this gym has the ingredients to provide such a tranquil atmosphere.

IPhone 4: Has everything to offer its consumer except the most important asset of a phone, the ability to make consistent calls.

 IPhone 4: Has everything to offer its consumer except the most important asset of a phone, the ability to make consistent calls
Weeks ago when purchased I was enthralled with the new IPhone 4's image clarity. It made the IPhone 3G's technology look like a joke when comparing the two close up. The picture's taken with the gadget were comparable with most digital cameras and the sleek look it gave made my buy seem like a match made in heaven. Very soon my opinion was set on another course. Not only have I dropped numerous call since purchasing the device, the touch screen proved equally flawed. Quite often when using my finger to slide the button over to answer a call, nothing would happen. Living in New York City, one must always have a sense of where they are, the "maps" feature is a wonderful tool to use when one desires to find their current location. Yet, when using this feature I was constantly attempting to find a signal to allow the device to pin-point my location. Most of the time to no avail. My confidence still remains strong in not only the company, but also the future of the IPhone 4. The problems will eventually be taken care of. Yet today I was forced to take a lovely trip back to the store to downgrade to the "safe" 3GS that will not leave me with a talking box with an awful signal. I find it amazing that one of America's most advanced technological companies created a device that vastly out performs almost all others in competition in certain areas, yet its most important and original intention has been overlooked.

Free Time is Valuable Time
Today was a potent mixture of very hard work yet complete leisure. For the first time in a while I had the day off so I decided to make a massive dent in my painting endeavor. After waking up around 9 I had my usual extra-bold, double brewed cup of Folgers and turned on my P90x ab workout with my yoga mat in place. After my brutal 15 minutes of strain on my stomach, I brought out the canvass and oil paints and worked on a new painting from 12 to 9. When complete, I am confident it could be one of my best. I will then add it to my Projects file. Until then, my days off will be filled with canvass and oil.
