To all ABQ Gymfolk:
DO NOT do business with the cheats and crooks at Sports and Wellness if you dislike being robbed. I signed up for a membership with training package. The trainers were disorganized and unprofessional, the air conditioning was out for most of the summer(!), and when I repeatedly tried to cancel, they continued to bill me membership and late fees because I hadn’t canceled in person at the location I had signed on at, despite them never having mentioned this requirement and me informing them multiple times that I could no longer reach that location due to giving up my car bc insurance was too high and them saying they’d happily accommodate that. Eventually they caved and just let me cancel over the phone- and sent the fraudulent $500 balance to collections. I asked as a condition of that that I never be contacted by them again. Just today they started spamming my cell number again, despite being informed repeatedly beforehand that such solicitation would be harassment.
Sports and Wellness is a cesspool of greed and dishonesty, a loan shark tank in the shape of a fitness center. They’re harder to cancel on than CenturyLink, and almost as ethical as a pyramid scheme. If this pandemic bankrupts the entire organization, it will likely be the first time either Sports and Wellness or covid-19 has made our community better off financially. Please go out of business, asap, if that’s what it takes for you to treat your clientele like people and not payouts.
Anyone is welcome!

We miss you at the gym, but we are thankful we will see you when we are open again. Happy Thanksgiving from The Open Gym!
The Governor just clarified the latest Health Order. She confirmed that in public we all need to wear masks. She confirmed if you are in a public space, even a gym, you must wear a mask. That means, even if you are exercising, you will need to keep your mask on.
We all need to do this to protect each other's health.
Exercising with a mask harder than not wearing a mask. All of us know it is hard, so we wish it were not needed, but it will help slow the spread of Covid-19, and that helps us all.
We want to keep you as a member and are glad we can, at least for now, continue to operate. Please send an email to [email protected] if you do not want to continue as a member.
Looking forward to seeing you,
The Open Gym.
All of us at The Open Gym are working hard to get ready to re-open on June 1, 2020. Here are some details on temporary changes as we reopen:
The Open Gym will reopen Monday June 1 at 5:00 AM.
You will need your access key at all times. The door will not open unless you have your key.
Weekdays: 5:00 AM to 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM.
Weekends: 6:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
This is a substantial reduction in hours. We hope to be back to 24 hour access as soon as we can, but the current health order would require us to have staff on duty 24 hours a day and the gym does not have the resources to do that.
We will limit ourselves to 20 members, plus up to 3 members working with personal trainers.
We hope that number at a time will be sufficient. If we already have that number of members in the gym, we will ask you to wait outside in the now classic "Social Distancing Line." We have not put tape on the sidewalk. We know you can figure out how to space yourselves in line.The State guidelines require that we not have members waiting inside, so we hope everyone can finish their workout within an hour and fifteen minutes.
If we end up with times during which members are having to wait to enter the gym, we will probably allow members to schedule times during peak hours...that seems like a headache to all concerned, so we hope that will not happen.
We need to save our space for our members, so, for now, no guests.
Also, we will not be selling new memberships until we have a better idea how this is working for our current members.
We will be cleaning more than the state requires.
We have plenty of disinfecting fluid in spray bottles for member use.
We ask that you spray and wipe all touch surfaces before and after using equipment.
We will be doing the same.
The latest Health Order does not require masks when exercising, but we really, really, want you to wear a mask. So please, if you can exercise while wearing a mask, we hope that you will do so.
Group Excercise will be over Zoom and Facebook. We will be emailing links to log in for group excercise to our members.
We also will soon have Body Pump, Body Combat, CXWORX (core work), RPM (think Spin), and Tone (cross training) scheduled all day long in the gym fitness room so you and your best friend can enjoy some great group exercise without the risk of a large class. We will post the schedule as soon as we have it set up.
When to Stay Home:
We are all counting on each other to keep everyone safe, so:
Please do not come to the gym if:
You do not feel well.
You have a fever.
You believe you have been exposed to someone with Covid-19.
You have been traveling to a place with high risk of Covd-19.
Don't know why, but we are not supposed to use the showers...so, no showers, for now.
Bring a water bottle! the water fountains are off limits for now.
Thank you for being a member. We are learning how to accomodate the risk from Covid-19 while still giving our members a chance to exercise in a safe environment.
Because nobody is! Promise! 😂😂😂 Join us at 6pm for Cardio Hip Hop zoom! We have fun. 🕺💃
Hello again OG fam. We hope you are continuing to stay well and safe. Feel free to check in with us via FB messenger to let us know how you are.
With the current crisis, no doubt we have been forced to slow down. But some good news is that we are now ZOOMIN! 🎬 That’s right...even with your dues currently suspended, we are offering free virtual classes via Zoom. We know some of you have been taking classes with Samantha and Natalie 💃🏻🕺🏻 and now have we a robust class schedule. Currently our classes include:
👉🏼 Silver Sneakers with Julia at 9:00 am on Tuesday.
👉🏼 45 Minute Total Body Toning with Adelaide at 5:45 pm on Tuesday.
👉🏼 Judy's Gentle Yoga at 7:00 pm on Tuesday.
👉🏼 Natalie's Cardio Hip-Hop at 6:00 pm on Wednesday.
👉🏼 Judy's Vigorous Yoga at 7:00 pm on Thursday.
👉🏼 Steve's Basic Training on Saturday at 9:00.
👉🏼 Steve's Cardio Kickboxing on Sunday at 9:00.
Members, you should have received an email with a meeting ID and password to access classes. Please let us know if you did not!
Otherwise, we look forward to seeing you all online for fun, good health and camaraderie! 💪🏼 🧘🏻♂️🤼🏋🏽♂️
Taking a walk? 🌻🌵 Or wanting to get your home or outdoor workout in? Take a few sets of lunges with you and strengthen your quadriceps (the muscle groups that protect the front of your thigh bone). Lunges will also help stretch your hip flexors and calves. From American Council on Exercise - ACE, here are the variations on lunges.
With forward or reverse lunges, here’s what to remember:
1) Pull pelvis into the floor without pushing into the knee.
2) Make sure your knee is inline with your hip on the back leg.
Message us with pics if you’re unsure about your form:
5 Lunge Variations for Leaner Legs Lunges are a great tool for creating leaner legs, and there are a number of variations you can try to target different parts of the lower body. Here are five fun and effective lunge variations to consider adding to your lower-body routine.
The Push-Up. Thank you National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM).
The results (and safety) are in the details. Proper form is everything. Remember, to lessen body weight, you can keep your knees on the mat, with a clean angle from crown of the head to tailbone. Widen the position of your hands to focus on pecs.

The Cardio Trio is an effective way to prepare the body for strength-training or HIIT work. Get the heart rate up, heat up the body and warm up upper and lower body muscles. In 30-second intervals, start with jumping jacks (or steps side to side), move to high knees (marching, jogging or sprinting) and butt kicks (jogging forward or stepping in place).
High knees overview:
Good evening OG fam!
By now, many of you may be feeling stir-crazy or maybe even grateful for the extra time to relax and re-discover projects you’ve been putting off. Good for you!
Just a heads up—there will be more instructional posts on various exercises coming. We want to make sure you not only have ideas to help you keep moving but safety tips to help you execute and get the most out of them.
If you want ideas on what to do with equipment you currently own, please leave us a comment.
In the meantime, we strongly encourage you to follow the Governor’s executive orders to stay home and limit gatherings to 5 people or fewer. If you are an essential employee, stay vigilant about hand-washing every 20 minutes and keep your hands away from your face. Seriously.
You can still get your steps in with walks outdoors, set up your mat and do your favorite Yoga poses. If you like to go hard—do your thing using body weight and keep going! We know you are a creative bunch.
First and foremost, please stay safe and strong.
We are all in this together and together we will get through this. 🙏💪🏼🌎
Next up 💪🏼 The plank. Here is a demo from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM):

Good morning, OG-ers -- we hope you're staying safe and well. To those of you whose jobs are considered essential services and you are still reporting to duty, please take care, our thoughts are with you.
As a helpful tool for those with questions, we are going to breakdown yesterday's suggested workout (Shelter-in-Place Workout #1) with tutorials. Please be safe and work to your capacity.
Here's the -- the first movement in the warm-up. Again, no equipment needed. So in place of the med ball, it's OK to bring hands together as you squat or keep hands behind the head "prisoner style." As you're warming up, don't worry about how low you squat (you're not being graded on this! This is for your safety and strength). As your body gets warmer, your range of motion will increase. Just remember to keep the abs braced and keep from pushing your knees forward. Favor the weight in the heels. Notice the knees aligning with the ankles.
Here's a breakdown from American Council on Exercise - ACE:
