How many places can you get an amazing outdoor workout AND feel like you’ve just done something as social and fun as going to your favorite bar? I know it’s an odd comparison, but I swear being in a swarm of beautiful people, stepping together and sweating together was strangely exciting. Even if I felt slightly in adequate compared to all the 6-packs that surrounded me! These wooden steps are wider and easier to navigate, and the beach vibe was way more noticeable on these steps. When I got to the end, I almost tripped over a trainer standing like a mountain and yelling, I mean ENCOURAGING, a totally ripped guy he had running up and down the steps a million times. My advice is to crank iPod, tighten your earbuds, and don’t be intimidated! I will admit it’s a relief to step out onto Entrada when you're done.
