Well, I don't really enjoy the health produced by the mechanial machines. The true physical and psychal health comes from the nature. I like to have my freedom and creativity in my sports. Here are some alternative ways to escape the ugly machines in gyms, within 2 hours around Caltech:

1, Drive to Altadena and have a jogging along the Mt Wilson Toll road, to Henninger Flats.

2, Drive to Griffith observatory and have a jogging along the Mt Hollywood trail.

3, Jogging to Old Town Pasadena from Caltech, along Colorado Blvd. Take a coffe and read a book, come back.
