One of the main accomplishments that I recently made is that I finally snowboarded for the first time in my life, or first winter sports ever.

The last time I remember was in grade 8 when we were going on a ski trip and I had to back out the last minute because I suddenly got sick.

I fell so many times, but it was at the same time very exciting and something which I hope to try longer hopefully later on.

Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport

Finally, I had a chance to go to the new Goldring centre right beside Rotman building today. It’s also a part of an initiative for the Pan Am 2015.

First impressions:

1. Awesome NEW building.

Every.thing.is.new. WOW.

They even got dyson airblade in the change rooms with private shower stalls.

2. kilos for weights

I found it very awkward using dumbbells that have kilograms written instead of pounds (lb). Perhaps it is because to allow international sportsmen to use them at ease. They do have a conversion chart on the wall, but I had a hard time getting used to it.

3. Fat dumbbell grip

Also something that I felt uncomfortable although it gives a better performance from my understanding.

So far, not many people know about this place, but once it gets crowded, who knows how it might end up? but now that we got an exercise facility right beside our school building, it’s time to exercise!
