See if your town Park & Rec runs any classes. Those are usually much more affordable than joining a gym, and sometimes they use the same facilities.

DIL, do you have a planet fitness near you. It's a no contract gym and it's only 10 bucks a month. I really enjoy the one near me. The equipment is well kept and seems to be the latest stuff. Downside is that the personal trainers cost extra... so it's really a exercise on your own type of deal.
But they have tons of recumbent bikes, ellipiticals, treadmills, stair climbers etc. So for me, its a life saver for stress relief.

DLI - maybe you said and I missed it, but how old is your daughter? A couple of things come to mind. Five miles may be a much too large of a bite for her. Think baby steps and build. Walking is a very good think but like with any exercise, it is better to start slower and build. Also, check with churches and/or community colleges and the like - they often have low cost programs at different times.

So our DS is heading back to WDW on Monday. After we got back last week he got online and applied for a job at Disney. They invited him in for an interview. I tried to get him into the Lodge but there was no room at the inn. I was able to get him a studio at SSR. We have never stayed there. He will be there Monday through Wednesday. Anything he should be on the lookout for? Thanks!

Nothing comes to mind for him to look out for, but best wishes for securing a job at Disney! What kind of job is he applying for?

Thanks! He is applying for a front line entry level position. His passion is entertaining. He graduated from the musical theatre department of a performing arts high school before heading off to NYC to study acting for two years. Truly he loves acting and during our recent trip to WDW I did not miss an opportunity to point out to him that every cast member there is an entertainer. Ideally he would prefer stage work, but first things first. His opportunities to do what he loves is extremely limited in Podunk, USA where we live. So just getting into that arena will help his mental state of mind tremendously. Pays not great, but it is honest work and he can have a lot of fun. Cost of living is higher than Podunk, but not nearly as high as NYC. So we have our fingers crossed.

Wishing your son a great set of interviews and audition!

You're right, the pay is not great at entry level, but just being able to put "Disney" on the resume is worth gold. Plus, for someone who truly loves creating the show & magic for the guests, there is no better company to learn from.

Just stopping by to thank all our current and retired members of the Armed Forces for their service to our nation. And a thanks to their families who provide so much support for them, and therefore for us.
