I sound like a broken record at this point, but I love trying new things. And I recently had the chance to try one of Bowflex’s newest products, the HVT. I ended up having a killer workout, and it was so much fun!
Usually these posts are about new food items that I’ve tried, but I’m branching out. In addition to writing about two new-to-me foods (which I’ll get to soon), I’m first going to write about a new gym that I tried: Gold’s Gym.

Mark your calendars for Thursday, March 1, 2018. That’s the day I’m going to be on “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire,” so tune in!
