Photo of the Week – Me and My Personal Trainer

Camilo was not shy about pushing me to work hard at Dinamo, the gym a few blocks from Maira’s apartment in Envigado.

On the other hand, I’ve gotten several compliments since returning home, so apparently all the hard work has made a noticeable difference (at least in my shoulders).

There are two gym chains in Medellin – Bodytech (most expensive) and Forma (slightly less so).

Dinamo, to my knowledge, is just a single location, neighborhood gym.  By the time the Forma opened in Envigado, despite its extra space and new equipment, I was at home at Dinamo.

  1. Lookin good dave. When do you plan on going back to Colombia ? Im hitting up SE Asia for four months pretty soon … How much did it cost per month at that gym ?

    • Hey Kyle, I’m actually going back to Colombia Sept 26 to Oct 8 really quick, as long as there are no issues getting a Visa.

      Dinamo gym was 100,000 pesos the first month – so maybe $50, and then 80,000 each additional ($40).

      SE Asia will be a lot of fun! I’m about ready to head back to Thailand.
