Just next store to the gym-combo is a laundry room. Brand new front-loading washers and dryers are stacked, back to back, and available 24/7 with a 4/C on watch to ensure that the equipment is being used properly.
Other than the gym, we have some clubs on the ship that meet at designated times for a fun workout. Today, for the first time, I participated in the Zumba class. It was a blast! Cassandra (a cadet at Mass Maritime and a food handler for Chartwells) held the class in the Seatorium (a large space located just beneath the Messdeck); she is a certified Zumba instructor,and turned our workout into a dance party! Many cadets take part in the crossfit club training or ju jit su practice, but I think that tomorrow I'll be taking a kickboxing lesson!
We are very lucky to have such an array of facilities, activities, and equipment available to us, especially to those cadets that need to stay fit for the upcoming fall sports! It keeps us healthy and sane while on board
for six weeks.
As we move up the coast we are keeping an eye on the weather, hoping not to hit any blizzard type weather. I am sure you have been weather watching too.
