New Phone Who 'Dis And Some Tales of Random Acts of Fitness

New Phone Who Dis?  Basically that was what my phone said to the gym this morning.  Yesterday I upgraded to the iPhone 15 Pro Max.  Ya, Me!  Did my best last night to get it all set up and everything plus or minus a few apps.  This morning once I got up I got my act together a bit slower.  I had the time so I checked the phone to see which apps downloaded.  Checked the app that opens the door at the gym and it seemed sort of fine.   As I drove to the gate of my street I turned back to get my old phone but then turned around thinking I don't need that.  After the 10 minute drive to the gym I tried using the app but it just wasn't connecting to the door.  Ugh.  After a few tries I drove home to get my old phone then back to the gym.  The old phone didn't work since I authorized the new phone to access the gym.  Tried the new phone and nothing.  Luckily I had the hard pass for Anytime Fitness so drove there.  I wasted about 45 minutes

Once at anytime I did a 5 minute warm up and started my Chest Day

Flat Bench DB Skullcrusher at 35 lbs x Reps 7 / 8 / 8
Standing DB Lateral Raise at 25 lbs x Reps 10 / 10 / 10
BENCH PRESS - Grr...I forgot how much I dislike the set up of this location.  No chest press bench setup so you use the Squat Rack area which is off centered so it's odd.  You need to line the moving bench to the rack.  It's just a pain.
CABLE FLY - Funny how each cable setup at every gym is a bit different.  
The Rest was just Meh!  I didn't want to kill myself as I'm teaching a Cycle class later
First time teaching in a very long time.  I got to the gym an hour early to check out the room but didn't realize they had a class before me.  I had time to learn the lights and all that.  I set up my bike but after warm up had to reset the seat height.  After that it was okay.  I made a few goofs but all in all it was fun.  I had a blast  I really enjoyed teaching again.  Before the class started I walked around the room chatting it up and it was just like I never left the room.  I haven't taught this particular format in over 6 years.  I will admit several times I was so out of breath.  I got off the bike and boy boy did I almost kill myself.  But once again it felt great being back on the bike.  I had 31 people in the class so that is DIRECT ACTS OF FITNESS.  I INSPIRED PEOPLE TO MOVE THROUGH LIFE AND SPORT.  After the class I had to hit one of my centers to get someone on the new payroll program and then a few hours later had to go back to one of my centers and another center do it again.  Ugh!  Some day off!

My centers hosted Walk Away and of course Pickleball.  
I got SWIMMING at 10am.  Now I may I say may go to the gym if I wake up at 3:30am.  Back and Bicep Day!  
Trying not to rant and trying to be positive.  I'm teaching again next Saturday as I am subbing for someone.  To me that is DIRECT ACTS OF FITNESS as I'm in the room teaching/coaching.  I love my job and that is why I started to keep track of the RANDOM ACTS OF FITNESS my centers do.  With the volunteer group leaders organizing the activities and sports I have a indirect way of INSPIRING OTHERS TO MOVE THROUGH LIFE AND SPORT.  I'm also proud of everything our department does that I'm not involved with.  We have 7 Fit Clubs, 12 Outdoor Fitness Equipment Sites, Over 12 Sport Pools and 100's of Pickleball Courts.  More RANDOM ACTS OF FITNESS.  I keep try to remind myself that it may not be a direct act but the organization I work for INSPIRES thousands of people every day to MOVE THROUGH LIFE AND SPORT or as they say:
To create and implement
excellent recreational opportunities
that promote an active
and healthy lifestyle.
I should be happy to be part of an organization like that.  I know I can't do everything but recently they assigned some folks some tasks for example "showing people how to use the outdoor exercise equipment" to someone else.  I want to bey "Hey, over here you got a NASM Certified Trainer!"  But I should be happy we have a time where someone in our organization is INSPIRING OTHERS TO MOVE THROUGH LIFE AND SPORT and creating more RANDOM ACTS OF FITNESS.  It's not DIRECT for I'm 6 Degrees of Separation or something like that.  RANT OVER.  
Plus I get to teach again next weekend!  Maybe even more down the line...
