(This is the first installment of a four-part review of the fitness options available at the DCC.)

Ah January, the time of year we dust off that old resolution to lose those extra pounds and get in shape. If you aren’t already getting your butt in gear at the Daybreak Community Center (DCC), you really should check out the options there. They offer a variety of fitness activities that are not only good for you, but fun, too. And hey, since you’re already paying for it with your HOA dues, you might as well use the facility.

treadmillsIf you’re into plugging in the earphones and working your heart out, the DCC has all the typical workout equipment for you: treadmills, elliptical machines, stationary bikes, and a weight-lifting circuit. While not large, the exercise room overlooks the basketball gym below which gives it a feeling of spaciousness. There’s even an indoor track around the open space for walking or jogging. You won’t find as many machines at the community center as you would at a larger gym, but there’s usually enough to go around.

Most of the time, the gym is empty or mostly empty. People seem to come in herds. Within 30 minutes, most of the people will be gone. It's a hit and miss.

I really enjoy using all the equipment at the DCC. I go 2-3 times a week during the evenings and it is usually pretty busy. Maybe that is just because it is January and everyone has New Year's resolutions? I hope that there are plans for another community center as other parts of Daybreak are developed because the exercise room already seems to be filled to capacity. I can't imagine a growing population all fitting.
