Some Places I Favor Close to Home

Recently I kept up my New Year’s Resolution to start going to the gym. I know myself and in order for me to be religious about attendance, it has to be close by, so I picked “Sierra Fitness”. Much to my surprise it is a cozy place located very close to where I live, work and drop my daughter off at school – close to the corner of Sunrise and N. Kolb. It is never crowded and I can get on the treadmill and see fantastic Catalina Mt views. I tried out a month membership for $99. They offer many memberships including off days and off hours. I am not an exercise class person, but they offer many classes. The equipment is ample and I never had to wait in-line to use it. I see people of all ages and all sizes and everyone is cordial and friendly.

I have also decided to change hair dressers so I can be closer to home; I have been delighted with “Wild Orchids” and my young hairdresser, Katrina. Again, this salon is located near the corner of Sunrise and Kolb.

One of my favorite lunches is the wonderful fresh salmon salad I get for lunch at “Garvi’s” and this is no surprise to anyone – is located near the same corner.

My Dentist is fairly new to me and wonderful, too–“Dr Sandra Gibson”–located right upstairs from “Sierra Fitness”, near the corner of Sunrise and N. Kolb. She takes great care of my husband, my 11 year old daughter and myself. After trying several local dentists and not being impressed, she was a great find!

My last favorite close to work spot is on the corner of Sunrise and Swan – “Starbucks”. I just love the music and atmosphere in the AM. I have a large Vanilla Latte’ and read my New York Times. This is a great way to start the day!
