In the 17 years I've been a fitness professional, I've found that there are only a few minor barriers to fitness success — and that they are a matter of perspective. Things often look different when you look at them from the "30,000- foot level," then from ground level. If you really examine these "barriers," you'll see that in the scheme of things, they are easily overcome. Here are the top four: 1. No time.  There is always time.

There is a growing trend in this country for people to purchase equipment to work out at home rather than join a gym or fitness center. There are a number of reasons for this trend. Some people feel their budget will not allow joining a club or fitness center. This especially is true for young parents with growing families or seniors with a fixed income. Doing the exercises at home is the thing to do. Many people feel that trying to find the time to travel to a gym is difficult.

The Washington County Commissioners last week said they are trying to help the CSL youth sports league get access to the gym at the former Fort Ritchie Army base. It's a welcome step, not only because CSL has 600 members, but also because having people at Fort Ritchie will help to market it. That's not just our hunch, but a strategy recommended by Lerner Enterprises, which is negotiating to become the master developer of the site. Lerner officials told the board of Pen Mar Development Corp.

A capacity crowd inside Broadfording Christian Academy's gym witnessed perfection Saturday. Not once, but twice. Smithsburg Middle School's Ryne Willard made all 10 of his free throws to win the Washington County Middle School boys basketball league seventh grade free throw title. "I wanted to set the bar high," Willard said. "It feels good. " "He's out in the driveway until the wee hours of the evening," said Barry Willard, Ryne's father.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Seniors at Waynesboro Area Senior High School, in a close vote, decided to move their commencement exercises from the crowded, steamy gym in their own school to the comfort of a large auditorium at Mount St. Mary's College in Emmitsburg, Md., a high school spokesperson confirmed Tuesday. Graduations have been held inside or outside Waynesboro's high school since it opened in 1962. The 2002 graduation was scheduled to be held outside but rain forced the event into the school's gymnasium.

Youth to get clubhouse By KIMBERLY YAKOWSKI kimy@herald-mail.com Two community service organizations are turning the dated Fairgrounds Clubhouse building into a modern athletic and social club for Washington County's youth.

Community groups seeking more space for youth recreation may soon get it on the former Fort Ritchie army base, according to Washington County Commissioner William Wivell. Wivell, a member of the PenMar Development Corporation board, the group charged with redeveloping the old fort, on Tuesday said that the base's gym might be turned over to a community group for $1, as was done with a similar facility at Letterkenny Army Depot in Franklin County, Pa. Wivell's statement not only gives some hope to youth sports advocateses whose teams need the space, but could go a long way toward easing tensions between PMDC and some members of the surrounding community.

Their guard was Reggie "Air Man" Dixon of the Harlem Globetrotters, and he appeared to be having as much fun as they were. Dixon's appearance was a surprise for the 170 fifth- through eighth-graders, who didn't know until Tuesday morning that the 6-foot basketball star would be at their school.

BELISLE / Staff Writer, Waynesboro photo: RIC DUGAN / staff photographer WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Ron Grimes was having a good time pedaling away on one of those torture machines in the cardiovascular room at the Waynesboro YMCA Tuesday afternoon. Headphones kept him up to date on a courtroom drama unfolding on a television screen over his head. When he got bored with that, he glanced at the Time magazine in his hands. [cont. from news page ]

Most fitness peeps choose their workouts based on what everyone else in the gym is doing.  They base their exercises on the biggest guy's exercises. Or the slim girl in the sports bra top. They copy the same workouts they find in the magazine, these same magazines have been cycling in and out for decades. They constantly go from supplement to supplement based on what the 17-year-old kid at GNC tells them they need. And by choosing this path, these folks have decided that they want to have an average body, get average results and an average level of fitness.
