May 29 NYT Strands Solved

While I may be a couch potato now, your boy used to regularly hit the gym some time ago (got to get back on the grind, sigh). So, I was more than familiar with it, and easily found WEIGHTS at the top. At the bottom right corner, I found CABLES next, and then TREADMILL running over it.

The bottom left corner was home to BIKE and at the very top ran ELLIPTICAL. Obviously, the Spangram turned out to be FITNESS and I found it running edge to edge through the middle. The last couple of grids gave me ROWER and that marked the end of today’s Strands.

Didn’t have to use any hints. Looks like I’m on a streak again, let’s go! What about you though? Was it too easy for the fitness enthusiast in you or did you end up using hints? Do cry your heart out in the comments down below!
