Default Fitness Room




Because many of the employees of Level Seven are former athletes or were once professional Quidditch players themselves, it should come as no surprise that fitness is a primary concern or that they like to find ways to remain in shape. A fitness and weight room was instated near the entrance of the lifts to address the needs of the Games and Sports employees, but is open for use by anyone in the Ministry.

Featuring state of the art exercise machines powered by magic, the fitness room is equipped with treadmills, stationary and recumbent bikes, and elliptical cross-trainers. Free weights of graduated sizes are located along one of the mirrored walls.


OOC- This thread is open for all Ministry employees, both G&S and other employees. Feel free to start a roleplay here with your friends.

In an attempt to keep his cool, West headed into the fitness room to burn off some energy. He hadn’t realized just how difficult quidditch team members and owners could be to work with. He hadn’t been that bad. No, there was no way he had been that rude to the Ministry workers he interacted with. Well, except for that one time…

Upon entering the room in his fitness garb, he headed towards the treadmills to get warmed up. After selecting his incline and speed, he hopped on the belt and began a slow jog. The rhythmic thump thump thump of his feet hitting the belt began to calm him. The anger and frustration slowly melted away and his shoulders, once tense, began to relax. It was exactly what he needed.

Giles was getting up there in the age, at least for quidditch, so it wasn't any surprise when he had to go into the ministry to do some paperwork on his last injury. As he entered level seven he headed towards not the offices but the gym, he was meeting the employee there instead and going to have a workout with one of the trainers to look into his knee issues.

Heading in he looked around but didn't see the two people he was meeting,
but he had noticed someone else in the room. A slight nod was all he gave because he didn't want to give a distraction if the person in a tense workout and didn't want to be disturbed, though he wasn't fully sure what to do with himself while he waited. Should he just go get started or should he wait near the door?

This wasn't awkward at all.

It took him a moment before he realized he wasn't alone anymore. There was always something strange about feeling watched while working out. The gentleman that entered the room wasn't staring at him, but it felt strange that he wasn't working out. West gave a nod back and wondered if he should say something to the man or just ignore him.

A few moments later, when the guy still hadn't fully entered the workout area, he gestured to the machine next to him "You are welcome to join me on a run to nowhere." He give a light chuckle. Treadmills had always been his least favorite way to exercise. All the work and you never really move. Running outside was far preferred, but not as easy during the workday.

He continued at a slow jog, letting his feet fall back into a good rhythm, and tried to think about something other than the stitch creeping up his side.

He had been just thinking, thinking about his career and if he should retire after the season or if he should keep playing that he wasn't even aware he was unintentionally staring. That was until the man said something to him and even then he wasn't sure he fully heard him. Did he say about using the treadmill near him?

Oh, well he probably could.


Walking over he looked at the treadmill, "I was actually looking for someone who is suppose to be meeting me here. I have to do a physical with them." The man probably knew who he was, though if he wasn't apart of level seven maybe he didn't. "Giles Low" he would stick out his hand but the other man was still working out. So Giles did what he could for now and got on the treadmill.

West continued his jog as the man approached. "Well, I'm the only one that's been around for the last half hour or so." At least he hadn't noticed anyone enter or exit the room since his arrival, not that he was paying much attention. "Either way, a nice warm up might be good before a physical. Get the blood flowing and all." He pushed the main button and picked up the pace as he increased the incline slightly. That was another problem with jogging inside, it if you didn't adjust the treadmill, nothing ever changed. It wasn't nearly as good as a good old run through the park.

Music. The room needed music. Without music, he felt the need to talk. "So, Giles, have you worked here long? I just started a few months ago and am still getting the feel of things." That was an understatement. Barely treading water would have been the correct answer, but he didn't know the guy well enough for that. "Know of any good places to grab a burger and a drink? You know, the hole in the wall places that only the locals go to."

He hadn't seen anyone? Giles sighed a bit and looked to his watch, he had to pick up the girls in just an hour so this guy needed to hurry up or he'd have to talk to Victoria or well Lucas now it seemed. Changes were a thing to happen, but the older Giles got the more he didn't know why it had to be so often.

"Yeah, you might be right." Setting his bag down he got on the treadmill and started it up. "Getting the knee warmed up probably will help me with this anyway." Fans knew about his knee, it was all over the papers, so no point in hiding it.

What the man said next though made Giles look at him funny. Was he a level seven employee? Maybe he wasn't quidditch at least. "I don't work here... I mean I'm one of the beaters on the Canons." He did know what who the Canons were, didn't he? Merlin he hoped he wasn't a quidditch division employee if he didn't even know who the players were.


"There is a good Pizza place up the road, that's about all I know around here."

Thump, thump, thump, went his feet as he jogged along, attempting to make small talk with the man, then something Giles said finally sank in. Beater on the Cannons. Giles Low. West turned his head towards Giles a little too quickly, taking in who he was actually talking to. His left foot came down half on the treadmill belt and half off, sending his body hurtling backwards and laying him flat on the ground with a loud crash.

The force of impact knocked the wind out of him and he laid there, gasping for air, for several moments. His back hurt, his head throbbed, but he was once again breathing normally. It felt good to have air flowing through his lungs again. After taking a quick inventory of his body, he very slowly sat up. “I apologize. It’s a pleasure, Giles. I seem to have been a bit too consumed with my workout to realize who I was talking with.” How utterly embarrassing. If this got back to his fellow quidditch division employees, he would never hear the end of it.

One minute Giles was half watching the guy half starting his on the treadmill and the next he was off his treadmill and standing near the guy who had just slammed backward, "Mate, not sure you should get up. Are you hurt? Maybe I need to get a healer in here." He watched the man cautiously before offering a hand to help him up.

Oh, he just realized who was there, now Giles was feeling really bad. "I'm sorry, didn't mean to make you fall off your treadmill. Working on level seven you probably see plenty of players around though." He figured the department was actually crawling with ex players and players coming and going, so the employees probably were very use to it.

With his head still throbbing, he took Giles' hand and got himself up off the floor. “I’m okay. No need to get anyone.” His aching body said otherwise, but there was no way he was going to add to his embarrassment by calling on a healer. Plus, he had taken much worse falls back in his playing and coaching days. He could hold off until later to see if any body parts were still in need of attention.

“Not your fault at all. I should have been paying more attention.” His hand reached up to rub the lump on his head. That would be there a few days. “And, yes, we do get a lot of quidditch players on level seven. I’m usually much more professional. Well, at least I hope I am.” He chuckled as he took a few gentle steps away from the treadmill. “I think my workout is over for today. Is there someone I can find for you?” He glanced towards the door to see if any other employees had made their way to the fitness center. “I’d hate to have a guest waiting for so long. I can try to find out what’s happened.”

Giles wasn't fully sure the man was alright, but he helped him up. Checking him over he just kind of stood there in case the man fell. "Alright, if you are sure, but take it easy. Falling off one of these machines can be a serious problem."


"Well I distracted you and that was my fault. I shouldn't have been bothering you. Was just waiting on the healer that is to do a physical on my knee." He knew the guy was the best and that's why he sought him out. Giles couldn't help but just shrug with a smile, "It's not a problem, you are in the middle of a workout, you shouldn't have to be professional, plus I think professional is overrated at times." As he had gotten older his fines had gone down a little, but his temper was still well known in the quidditch world.


He was very nice to offer, but honestly, Giles knew he'd be around. "It's fine, I don't mind waiting. The sports healer will be here at some point." It wasn't the first time he had waited.

West rubbed his head with a slightly pained look on his face. "It's already feeling better." It wasn't exactly the truth, but no need to worry a guest. He gently leaned down and picked up his towel then tossed is onto his shoulder. "I think I'm going to have a seat for a few moments. You know, get the blood flowing to all of the right places again."

"Oh, no. No need to apologize. And, you are defiantly not a bother. I'm sure the healer will be here any moment to take care of your physical." He spoke as he made his way over to one of the weight benches along the wall. It would have to do as a chair for the time being. His head and back were still throbbing and sitting sounded wonderful. He glanced back to Giles, "How is the knee?" The thought of injured knees made his stomach flop a bit. That's what took him out of playing quidditch at such a young age. His knee, and leg, were so mangled after a bad accident that he was lucky to still be walking.

Giles was glad the man wasn't hurt, but he still watched him carefully and when he said he needed to sit down Giles was sure he was just trying to seem alright. "Alright, but if you need help just say something." He didn't want anyone to be hurt and not seek attention. Maybe if the healer came while he was still there he'd have him look at the man.

Going back over to the treadmill though so it didn't seem too weird he started at a slow walk. "Yeah, I know they get busy and things do come up." Though looking at his watch he was beginning to think that the man wasn't coming. It was like on command an owl swooped in and landed on the treadmill, "Well hello there." Coming to a stop he pulled the letter and opened it. "I guess it just wasn't my day. Seems something did come up." Now that he was there though he would just get a workout in.

"The knee is alright, though with two kids at home it doesn't get much of a break." He smiled thinking about his daughters. He loved every minute at home with them, but he wasn't ready to give up his broom just yet.

"The knee is alright, though with two kids at home it doesn't get much of a break." He smiled thinking about his daughters. He loved every minute at home with them, but he wasn't ready to give up his broom just yet.
Once he had been sitting for a few moments, the aches and spinning feelings in his head started to fade. "Right as rain now." Just as he was about to stand, the owl flew past. "That's too bad you made the trip here and all, but I'm sure it was important if they had to cancel on you." He slowly got up and started to do some gentle stretching. Nothing too fancy, nice and slow until he was sure how his body would react.

"Good to hear about the knee." He rubbed his own, remembering the pain from years ago. "So, you have two kids? I bet they do keep you busy. How old are they?" West had never been married. He felt like he had missed his chance being so focused on coaching all of those years. It was never the right time, but how he wished he would have settled down. Kids and a wife would be nice to go home to. Much better than the empty apartment. Maybe he needed to start paying more attention to the ladies working at the Ministry?

Nothing too fancy, nice and slow until he was sure how his body would react.

"Good to hear about the knee." He rubbed his own, remembering the pain from years ago. "So, you have two kids? I bet they do keep you busy. How old are they?" West had never been married. He felt like he had missed his chance being so focused on coaching all of those years. It was never the right time, but how he wished he would have settled down. Kids and a wife would be nice to go home to. Much better than the empty apartment. Maybe he needed to start paying more attention to the ladies working at the Ministry?
As he took the treadmill to a higher speed he kept glancing at the man. He seemed better and Giles was not as worried about him, so now he could run a bit more. "Nah, it's fine, it's not like the ministry is far or anything. So much easier to floo places than it is to have to drive or walk." Now if he was with his parents and had to go across town and it would be canceled he'd been more mad. This though, it really wasn't that big of a deal and he was using the equipment anyway.

"Oh they keep me busy alright. It's worth every second though. Do you have any kids?" He knew some people weren't about kids, but he was glad he had his and Esme, his little family was his world. "Eliana is seven and Autumn will be six in a few months." He couldn't believe how big they were. His babies really weren't babies anymore, though he'd see them as his babies forever.

As he listened to Giles, he made his way to the weights bench. His workout session might be losing out on some cardio after his fall, but weights could make up for it. He selected some light hand weights, just enough to lightly work his shoulders, and began lifting his arms.

"I'm still a bachelor."
He switched to the next size down of weights to work on his triceps. "I'd be lying if I said I was happily a bachelor. I never thought I would want a wife and kids, but now I think I do." It did feel strange for him to stay the words out loud. However, his ministry position drastically changed his goals in life. "Your kids sound great. I bet they bring a lot of joy to your life."

He lost himself in a quick little daydream of two little boys, eagerly learning to ride their brooms, just like daddy. His wife out in the garden, picking flowers. She would go inside, smelling of lavender an honeysuckle, to bake cookies for her family.

He shook his head of the thought. "I'll need to meet my future wife before too long. I'm not getting any younger." He chuckled a low deep chuckle.

Just as he finished speaking, he heard a voice over his shoulder and turned. "Natalie, welcome! No, not interrupting at all. Please, join us." He gestured to the open room and multiple empty machines around. The two men were only occupying the weight bench and one of the treadmills.

"Come up to work off some of that froyo? I had more than my share the other day." He patted his belly before continuing his lifting set. "Working at the ministry is a bit hard on the gut. I find myself sitting and eating much more than I did when I was coaching."

"Where are my manners. Giles, this is Natalie. Natalie, this is Giles." He introduced the two in hopes to make Natalie feel more welcome.

Natalie walked over to a vacant treadmill and stood beside it. "I always like to keep myself fit. A healthy body, a healthy mind, a healthy soul is what I always say. The yoghurt was not as bad as I expected."

Natalie extended her hand towards Giles. "It is nice to meet you," she said with a smile.

Giles was in a jog now on the treadmill and getting into his workout, even if the healer wasn't coming he was going to use this time wisely. As he continued on his workout he heard the door, but didn't really look to see who it was. Though he couldn't help but chuckle at the man's words, "You'll find her when you least expect it. There is always dating help too." There was some wizarding company that helped, but he couldn't remember the name at the moment.

Hearing a female's voice he couldn't help but think, well there comes one now, but he wouldn't say. He listened to the two talk before glancing over at the woman who clearly wanted him to shake hands with her, but he clearly was jogging and not really in a position for formal greetings at the moment, so he gave a nod. He didn't want to be rud in case it was a fan or his luck, a reporter, but he couldn't help but be jogging so he just went with the nod.

So maybe they knew each other and possibly that was his que to head out. Slowing the treadmill down to a stop he got off and looked at the two, "Well it was nice meeting you both, but I think it's time I head home for the day."

Natalie did narrow her eyes slightly as Giles didn't shake her hand. She felt it wasn't just due to him working up a sweat. What was this guy's issue? Just as Giles got off the treadmill, Natalie folded her arms and said, "Which department are you from? I work in Transportation."

He sat, starting to cool down after his workout, and slowly stretched his arms towards the ceiling. His muscles were tight from lifting weights and his clumsiness on the treadmill.

"It was a pleasure, Giles, I hope we run into each other again." He watched as the gentleman headed out and hoped that the next time he came in the healer would show up as expected. Good reason or not, he didn't like for appointments to be canceled at the last moment.

Turning back to Natalie, he became overly aware of his perspiration soaked shirt and exercised induced aroma. "Well, I'm in desperate need of a shower and it looks like you are getting ready for a workout." He paused a moment to consider his options "If you are up for it, I'm headed for the showers, then down the hall to the game lounge. I have a late meeting tonight, so I'm taking a bit of down time this afternoon. Anyway, you are welcome to join me. In the game lounge, that is. Not the shower." He blushed "Of course you knew that." He shook is head "So, yes, I'll be in the game lounge for the next few hours, if you would like to join me after your workout."

Thoroughly embarrassed, West swiftly stood, gave Natalie a little wave, and headed out the door.

Natalie began her workout on the treadmill. "I'd like to join you in the game lounge after my workout." Once West had departed for the showers, Natalie continued her workout for another half hour before heading to the showers. She then left for the gaming lounge.

Milo was glad to finally get back to work. Not that he completely minded the extra time off, but, without knowing exactly how long it was going to last, he didn’t find he was able to be all that productive. He didn’t want to travel or take an extended vacation, and Gobstones season wasn’t quite ready to get started. He found a few things to do at home and visited with family, but for the most part he simply hung out on the couch and binge-watched quite a few shows.

And he blamed that lack of activity for putting a few extra pounds around his middle.

So one of the first things he did when he returned to the Ministry was to visit the fitness room. Sure he could have gone to the gym during his time off, but it was easier to make excuses when it wasn't just down the hall. Now that he was here, he was done with the excuses and was getting back in shape.

Already in his workout clothes before the start of the workday, Milo stepped onto one of the treadmills to get started.

It was going to be another great year at the Ministry. Lucas could already feel it in his bones. He was also getting married later that year so that would also have something to do with his optimistic attitude. The Quidditch Division Head felt it would be a good time to let some of that energy into working out.

So here he was...

Already changed into his work out attire. What should he start with? Lucas stood in the middle of the room weighing his options. Weights? No... The treadmill! The fact that Milo was there may have had some influence in his decision. He stepped up onto one next to his work mate. "How's it going, Milo?'' The buttons were fidgeted with and soon he was off to a light running start.
