Houston Treadmill and Exercise Machine Disposal

There’s a new kind of gym in Houston and to enjoy it you’ll have to strap on the boxing gloves. Plex gym is a 40,000 square foot facility that is the brainchild of internationally known fitness guru Danny Arnold. Not only is there every piece of workout equipment you can imagine but the centerpiece of Plex is the boxing ring and boxing training you can participate in. You might even be exercising alongside some NFL and NBA players who are known to workout at Plex throughout the year. And of course you’re likely to run into many professional boxers who call Plex their workout home.

Ask anyone who has stepped into a boxing ring and they’ll tell you this is a serious workout that targets all of your muscle groups including cardio. It’s really not about becoming a boxer as much as it is about training like a boxer does. Of course, if you reach a certain level of skill you’re sure to find a willing sparring partner and then you can say you actually boxed somebody! Becoming a member of Plex is the perfect example of why joining a gym has some many benefits: You’ll be surrounded by all kinds of folks at all levels of expertise who will be willing to support your own workout regime. You can go the professional route and hire a trainer who will put you through your paces. A better approach would be to just become friendly with your fellow members. You’re sure to get a spotter or to pick up tips for your workout. The gym is a wonderful social networking environment that can actually improve your health.

All of this talk about gym membership benefits might have you rethinking all that gym equipment you’ve got collecting dust in your home. Yes, you purchased those items with the best intentions of working out but once they were paid off, there they sat. Just because you had a treadmill in the garage doesn’t mean you’re going to use it more often. Would you rather run on a treadmill staring at your garage walls or watch TV like you can in a gym? It certainly makes the time go a lot faster when you’re properly motivated.

If you’re ready to ditch that home gym equipment then let Junk King Houston do the power lifting. The Junk King Houston crew will have the skills to lift the treadmill, dumbbells or any other piece of equipment you want to toss out. On that same trip that can take away any other oversized item like furniture, kitchen appliances or TVs. If you’re not going to use it, why keep it? Get that junk out of your life and get to the gym. You’ve got some boxing to do!

Houston Landscaping Cleanup

For the big “Clean and Green”  bayou restoration project, the Bayou Preservation Association (BPA) recently joined forces with Harris County Jail. The BPA provided the resources and the inmates provided the muscle.

“Clean and Green is a very important initiative. The program allows inmates the opportunity to give back to the community while restoring the Houston environment,”  said Bayou Preservation Association Executive Director Kathy Lord to the Houston Chronicle. “It is exciting to see the enthusiasm and teamwork displayed by Harris County offenders through this cleanup effort which helped improve Buffalo Bayou and Turkey Creek.”

When you take a look at the rundown of what the inmates carted off it’s pretty impressive. Included were one large rusted pipe, two concrete pipes, four tires, five bags of trash, one metal frame, one car part, 16 Chinese privet, 11 tree ligustrum, 75 Japanese Honeysuckle Vines and four Chinese tallow trees.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a big work crew like that to help clear out your landscape? Actually, you won’t need a big crew when you hire Junk King Houston. These are professional junk removal specialists that are licensed, bonded and insured. In other words, they are dependable workers who know how to get the job done.

Clearing up a yard is hard work especially in the Texas heat. That might be why you’ve put off the job; it’s just too big a challenge for you to tackle by yourself. But with Junk King Houston you’ll be getting at least a two man crew on every job to help remove anything you want taken away. You don’t have to pitch in (although you’re welcome to!); the Junk King crew will do all the work. They’ll also have that big empty truck standing by to get filled up. Don’t worry about getting that truck dirty. In fact, if the crew comes back with a clean truck, the bosses know they didn’t do any work!

Just because Junk King will be helping you clear out your yard clutter doesn’t mean they can’t do the same thing with your indoor clutter. Let them make a sweep through your garage, basement, attic or closets. Whatever you want tossed out, let them know and they’ll be happy to take it away. Doing a major clean up like this in your home can reveal a lot of treasures. We’re talking about space you get to reclaim. Out in the yard you might finally be able to enjoy sitting outside on a cool evening without having to stare at all the junk you accumulated over the years. Inside, if your closet is clear out you can make room for the storage of more important things. In your garage you could actually park the car! The key is hiring Junk King Houston. They’ll be able to haul off all your junk without you lifting a finger. Isn’t that the way to go?
