Fitness Center — Deck 3 — Battlestar Orion
Smelling of sweat and grease, the Fitness Center is a place where individuals can come to work out or just work off stress. The area closest to the entrance is taken up by two very large sparring pads with a pathway down the center, each pad removable to reveal a Pyramid court beneath. The walls beside the pads hold lockers for everything from pugilist sticks to boxing gloves to rubber guns, though deadly weapons are strictly prohibited in here except by authorized personnel such as on-duty Military Police. Standing goalposts for Pyramid are also kept against the wall. Past the pads are a vast number of nautilus machines as well as free weights to lift. At the back of the room are workout bikes, rowing machines, treadmills, and stairclimbers. There is an entrance to the pool at the rear as well as a locker room to the side.
Sat Feb 16

There are two from the Air Wing that steps into the Fitness Center with particular intentions, Agrippa walking besides the blonde Raptor pilot, Maia. With a brief look around, the former begins to lead the latter in the direction of the sparring mats as was promised back up at the Observation Deck. He does glance back to the blonde and asks a favor, "Not the face, please. Already have a bruise and the stitches are still there." On his forehead, so if Samtara saw Agrippa here sparring right now, she would most likely object.

Phin returned to the ship from the planet some hours ago and has been bouncing around the ship, from the chapel to the showers and now here. He strides in along with Ygraine, who he's chatting with. About the possibilities in the landscape of Piraeus, for his part. "I would like to get some leave and see more of the planet. I mean, not like the uncharted bizarre wilderness parts of it, but the places people've kind of visited and cleared and stuff. Peacock told me once there was a choice beach by the equator. I've always wondered if it's got decent waves."

Luc comes from the pool. A bump can be seen at the back of his head and perhaps a bruise at his chin as well. Watching the two heading towards the mat but not saying much. Grinning and finding somewhere to watch them spar. His hair wet still and he has a towel over his shoulders. Without a shirt though.

"Ya never did get t'teach me t'surf." Ygraine's pointing out. She's got her gym bag over her shoulder. "I expect that we'll do a stint for tropical survival, and that ain't exactly a vacay, but it'll be pretty awesome, I expect. Oh look, it's a bare chested Luc. Ygraine shows her appreciation with a loud wolf-whistle.

In step with Agrippa, Maia arrives in the fitness room, walking directly over to the lockers to put on the protective hear. Glancing over at his words, she grins, "Not in the face.. Wait. Stitches?" Standing there in mid process of putting the gloves on, she gives him an odd look. "Well I'm not going to spar you." Catching sight of Luc, she offers him a nod, the bruise and all.. was that from her? Oops.

"No big deal, they'll be removed tomorrow after the mission." Agrippa says, waving off the concerns as he heads to one of the lockers next to Maia and begins pulling out protective gear as well. It appears that the Viper pilot is rather stubborn, once he had said he would spar with the blonde Raptor pilot, he's going to do it. There is no going back on his agreement nor is some stitches on his forehead going to stop him.

"You want to learn?" Phin grins at Ygraine. "There weren't any decent places to do it on Leonis close to where we go drive in a weekend, but if there're places here for it that'd be fun. No boards on the ship, but I don't think it'd be that hard to make something serviceable. My brother and I used to grab old pieces of aluminum siding back home bend them to make them useable. I mean…we wouldn't do that. There are, like, trees on the planet. But you get the idea." His left eye is still bruised, though it's turned a fading brownish-yellow rather than black. Her whistling at Luc earns a snorted chuckle as he strolls over to get a map. A general "Hey" is offered around.

Luc smiles to Maia as she offers a nod to him. Then he hear the wolf-whistle and it causes him to grin. Bowing to Ygraine. "Glad to be of service." He offers to her and seems a bit amused. Letting her enjoy the view a bit and he does stretch briefly before looking to those about to spar.

Maia continues to pull on the gear at his words of reassurance, "If you're sure." Hearing the pilot whistle at Luc, she looks back briefly, noticing him not having the shirt now. Ahh.. that's why. Looking at the other two, she offers a grin, "Hey." The greeting returned just as general. Once she's ready she walks over to the practice mat and loosens up bouncing a little, rolling her shoulders, throwing a few punches, getting her blood flowing. "Ready when you are."

Ygraine settles by Phin's mat, as she moves to get ready for a bit of spar herself. "Hey, winners from these two matches should spar." she suggests, clearly meaning the results of Maia vs. Agrippa and Phin vs. Ygraine. "Hiiiiii."

After grabbing the sparring gloves, Agrippa closes the locker and turns back, seeing that there is already a spectator along with another pair of sparring partnres. Slipping the gloves on as he approaches the mat, he gives both Ygraine and Phin a wave of his gloved hand before grinning at the proposed offer. "Sounds like a plan." Then he looks to Phin and nods, "I'll see you on the mats next, Phin. Let's make it quick." His words are spoken in jest but there is that typical Viper jock confidence inside of Agrippa as he steps onto his corner of the mat, shaking out his feet and hands.

"Are you that eager to kick my ass, Yggs?" Phin asks wryly. But, he'll spar. Not like he doesn't need to work on his hand-to-hand. He does not engage in any pre-match bragging, but he does glove up and put on some headgear. "I never really got the fun of boxing. I mean, it's useful, in terms of what we need to work on for combat and stuff. But whenever I got into a fight I spent more time figuring out ways not to get hit."

"Oh my gods." Ygraine rolls her eyes. "Hey, other hot blonde? Make sure to kick his ass." With that, she tsks, "Boxing. As if you didn't have feet, too. If ya don't want t'spar, Phinny, I'll get Crater to instead."

Luc chuckles and mostly watches at the moment. Nodding a bit in case Phinny backs out. He isn't rising or moving over yet. "Well, I can't say no, can I?" He tells Ygraine and grins. Just letting the others go on for now though.

"Nah, let's do it," Phin says. He does briefly turn his head at "the other hot blonde" Ygraine yells at. Half-smile. Hello, Maia. But then he takes to the mat. "I'm sure he'll be game for you later. Though we should talk about this enthusiasm of yours for beating up the Viper wing. I'm concerned." He's not, really. He bounces a little on his heels to limber. "Let's start on three." He'll let her count.

"One, two…" and then Ygraine foregoes three in favor of lashing out a kick.

"I'm game." Maia agrees once she hears Grip agree to winner taking on winner. Being addressed as the other hot blonde makes her grin. "Maia Kane, Raptor pilot. Lieutenant Junior Grade." Briefly she looks back to Luc, though her blue eyes settle on Agrippa. "You got first attack, Stitches," giving him a new temporary name. "Ready when you are."

When he is allowed to attack first, Agrippa looks at his opponent, surprised but then the surprise turns into a grin, "If you insist." With that, the fight is on with the other pair. Closing in on Maia, the Viper pilot his arms up in a guarded position before he throws out a left feint jab. Instead of a right fist flying forth next, it is his right foot, snapping out for the blonde's ankle in an attempt to trip her.

Phin is quick. That much can be said for him, at least. So, while the lack of 'three' catches him off-guard, he jumps back just in time to dodge Ygraine's foot. He keeps dancing rather than trying any proper punching for the moment. Apparently he was serious about this whole 'trying not to get hit' thing. He smirks while he's doing it, which is probably kind of annoying.

Ygraine makes a face as Phin dodges her kick, so she shifts on her feet, circling him, and tries for another one. She'll introduce herself after the fight's over, if she can manage to hit Phin at all.

Maia is already bouncing around so when he feints she is somewhat prepared, though the hit on her ankle almost trips her, it doesn't quite manage to do so and she remains standing, a quick flash of a grin before she goes immediately into a roundhouse kick, aiming low on his body.

The trip was more or less a probing attack to see is Maia is any good and it appears that she isn't that bad, especially when Agrippa has to prep for the counter blow coming. His arms comes down to block the shot, holding it close to his body so when the roundhouse kick lands, it's a glancing blow off his arm and at his hips. A nod is offered to the blonde Raptor pilot, as if to acknowledge that she isn't that bad. Then the attacks come again, this time hsi own roundhouse kick aimed at Maia's thigh.

"Can't hit me!" Phin taunts, as he bobs and weaves around another kick. Still smirking. Because irritating your opponent is such a good idea.

Ohhh, Phin actually knows how to press all of Ygraine's buttons. "Stand still!" she growls, and this time actually tries to throw a punch, because well, he's being obnoxious. (She will get him for it later.)

Maia finishes the kick, though it wasn't as powerful as she had intended, when he nods at her, she arches her brows somewhat frustrated still at the events of the day. That was her mistake, letting her mind drift even for that amount of time because when he counters with an identical move, he hits her thigh and she's down, but only long enough to pop back up, favoring one leg for just a moment. Not the face.. difficult wishes to follow. Since the roundhouse kick didn't seem to work, she feints a right jab, but quickly ducks into a leg sweep, wanting him down.

<FS3> Opposed Roll — Maia=Melee Vs Agrippa=Melee
Maia: Success Agrippa: Success

The jab was almost defended before Agrippa realized it was a feint as his hands come up to defend so the only way he could prevent himself from falling over when Maia's leg attempts to sweep him is to reinforce his stance. The leg hits but the Viper pilot maintains balance, enough to strike back as a padded fist flows at the blonde's midsection.

Phin is being obnoxious, and he is pressing her buttons. But he apparently wasn't kidding about knowing how to avoid getting hit in a fight. He ducks around Ygraine's punch, but this time he doesn't just avoid contact altogether and skip away. Instead he grabs her arm and tries to down her on the mat. And then go there himself to pin her.

Now way could she do a leg sweep and miss then immediately go into a defensive stance in that little of time so when he strikes back, Maia wasn't ready and she takes the padded fist without being prepared. If the breath is knocked out of her, she does her best not to show it even as she is countering with a quick jab to the chest.

Ygraine lets out a yelp as Phin catches her wrist and kicks her feet out from under her. She goes down with her free hand slapping the mat to absorb the shock, with she and Phin nose to nose on the floor of the mat.

"Hey Phin, how you doing over there?" Agrippa calls out to the other match, not having paid attention but still wanting an update since he is up in terms of points against Maia. He can't help but flash the blonde he is against a confident grin, almost one that is asking to be smacked. The jab that comes at his chest is blocked aside and he closes the distance further so that he can attempt a sweep at her ankles with his leg, wanting to take her down.

"Uh, pretty good!" Phin calls back to Agrippa, without actually looking away from Ygraine's nose. He rolls off her with a grin, getting back to his feet and offering her a hand up. "Winner." That was still a little obnoxious. "You OK?"

Maia is determined she is not going down, once down she'll get pinned and she's in no mood to be pinned by him at the moment. When the grin is given, she narrows her eyes, no she's not angry with him, she's just very competitive.. His deflection of her jab is met with a disappointed sigh, but she doesn't linger on it over long. "Come at me Agrippa, you should have had me down by now." The leg sweep is almost expected and she easily evades it, going right into another roundhouse kick to his chest.

She makes a good point, Agrippa thinks to himself when she taunts right back about having her down right now. With a smirk, after his sweep fails, he returns to a defensive position, in time to block the roundhouse so that it impacts against his upper left arm, then instead of a punch or kick in return, he launches himself at her. He is definitely trying to take her down with a grappling move now.

"I'm okay. You win." Ygraine agrees, and with a grumble, reaches up to grab his hand. Once clasped, she pulls hard, using her momentum to pull herself up, and force him to the mat. Once he's down, she straddles him and sits on top of him, but not before she assuring him sweetly, "Don't worry, Phinny. You still win."

All he succeeds in doing is pushing her backwards several steps when he makes contact, Maia laughs, cause it's funny and now that they are so close, she hooks a leg around his in a scissor move that won her a spar against another move earlier in the day, she tries to take him down as she twists.

"Hey!" Such is barked by Phin as he's floored and sat on. His blue eyes flick up at her, and it takes him a second to wrap his mind around this turn of events. Finally, he just snorts. "You are such a frakking cheater." It's said fondly, though.

Ygraine beams down at him. "And you like it." she tells Phin, before backing off of him and getting to her feet. She, wisely perhaps, doesn't offer him her hand. He can do a sexy kippup or something.

The move does not work against Agrippa, either he is stronger or just has a firmer foundation in his stance but he does intend to bring Maia down. Twisting, he attempts to go down but in the dominant position so that he would end up in a mount position.

Dominant position. Mount position. Go ahead Agrippa, talk dirty to her. They are almost evenly matched.. almost. When he tries to take her down again, her sheer willpower is what keeps her from buckling under him. Using her arms, she wraps them around him to bring him nearer to her only to twist at the last minute and try to pin him beneath her.

"Well, yeah. It's why we get along." Phin gets up all on his own, wiping an arm across his brow once he's on his feet again. He didn't get bruised during that, but all the jumping around was tiring. "I think you're getting too used to sparring with guys like Storm. I mean, dude's hard-core when it comes to boxing, but he's also, like, a mountain. Smaller guys can't afford to fight like that so…different strokes."

"Yeah, good thinking." Ygraine leans on Phin once he's on his feet, noting, "Don't get too tired, I think ya may be fightin' Maia next."

<FS3> Opposed Roll — Agrippa=Melee Vs Maia=Melee
Agrippa: Failure Maia: Failure
Net Result: Both Fail.

For the first time, Agrippa finds himself in a bad position as Maia's twist works, a point to her. But he isn't going to allow her to remain where she is to land punches on him or any other offensive tactic as he rocks to one side before quicky rocking back to the other, attempting to reverse positions.

Yeah.. Rocking motion? "Use the hips more, goofy." Was that an innuendo? When he tries, and fails, to reverse positions and she tries, and fails, to pin him again, it results in her hands hitting the mat and him getting a face full. Dammit! That wasn't what she had intended at all! Well.. he was technically pinned, possibly couldn't breathe, she has to have mercy on him and roll off him to lay on her back beside him simply because she is laughing too hard. Yeah, no action this round.

"I feel like I should introduce myself to a girl before I theoretically punch her. I'm a gentleman that way," Phin says wryly, leaning on Ygraine a little as she leans on him. It's mutual leaning. He focuses on Agrippa and Maia for the first time. Just in time. "Whoa! That was awesome."

Maia is well positioned to prevent Agrippa from reversing positions but he doesn't allow her to get any easy punches in. What he didn't expect was suddenly being smothered by a pair of soft pillows. "Whaffffdonn." Is the muffled speech coming from where he is before she allows him free. With a deep breath, the Viper pilot rolls away to the other side and scrambles to his feet, shaking his head, "That… was an illegal move." Though he is also laughing as well, so it wasn't exactly a complaint.

It isn't long before Maia is on her feet too, ready to continue and since she's recovered from her laughing, she rushes him in a quick tackle.. He was going down! She was determined!… Hopefully!

Agrippa is apparently still in a daze from the boobsmothering that Maia gave him as when his opponent comes rushing him, the Viper pilot freezes for a moment. And the moment is all she needs as she hits him straight on and he goes down with her on top again. He is stunned for the moment so unable to attempt anything but is apparently ready to defend or slip away.

Whoa! It worked! Reigning in her excitement Maia attempts one more time to pin him, still with that determination. "Stay down.." she grins in a confident manner, leaving the boobies out of it. This time.

Ygraine grin. "Looks like you get to spar Maia, lucky boy." she says to Phin from her lean. "You go, Other Hot Blonde!" she cheers.

"Cool!" Phin is maybe more enthusiastic about this than necessary. He amends a moderated, "Uh, I mean, she looks tough. Good skills practice. I am always up for that."

Unable to escape Maia's commanding position on top, Agrippa finally yields, "All right, you win." He says with a laugh, shaking his head, "They are certainly a pair of lethal weapons." He is no longer fighting now, relaxing his body and awaits for the blonde Raptor pilot to get off if she chooses to.

Maia chooses to and once she stands, she removes a glove and offers her hand to him. "Well fought, Agrippa." The confident smile gone and in its place an uncertain one. Some guys really hated to lose. "Thanks.." Hearing the words of encouragement, she smiles at the other pilot. "Thank you. Was a tough one." Her blue eyes rest back on Agrippa's.

It was a fair fight, mostly, minus the smothering of Maia's boobs but Agrippa accepts the proffered hand, using it as leverage to help himself get back to his feet. He still appears to be amused by how the table turns, shaking his head, "Good job, Maia. If I had to lose… definitely don't mind losing that way. Had you on the ropes though!" He does offer a friendly hand shake before turning to the other pair that fought, to see who won as he was too distracted to see during his match.

Ygraine elbows Phin without losing her pleasant expression; he does sound a mite over-enthusiastic. "Looks like it's Dolly versus…what's your callsign, Maia? C'mon Grippy, how about you n'me have our go-round?"

Once he stands, Maia grins, nudging against him with her arm. "You had me, I thought it was over awhile back." The blonde isn't arguing at all. She's already following his gaze though to the others. Her callsign. "Centerfold." The word is muttered, probably not even heard correctly. It's just..

"Centerfold?" Phin sort of exclaims it. Louder than he intended. That, combined with Ygraine's elbow, makes him flush in way that's at least moderately abashed.

"It's not over till it's over…" There is a pause as Agrippa hears Maia's callsign, stunned for the second time while he is here at the Fitness Center, "Centerfold." His sentence ending with the callsign that was given. Now there must be a story behind that one but first the Viper pilot looks to Ygraine, "Yeah, it looks like we get our match after all, Shake. But I think it's best if we save it for after our mission tomorrow." He jerks a thumb at Maia, "This one took a lot out of me, thinking of getting some shuteye." The sparring match in combination with the work earlier at the temple is pretty exhausting.

"Your mission." Ygraine counters with a sigh. "I've got CAP."

Mention of tomorrow's mission gets Phin back to serious mode, and he nods to Agrippa. "Yeah. I should rack out, now that you mention it. Don't want to zone over Aerilon. That was nasty territory last time."

"Centerfold." Maia repeats a little firmer this time, almost daring anyone to comment further. The twitch of her lips though belies her attempt to be serious. "So we're all on for tomorrow then? After everyone survives the mission. So, I'm off for some sleep myself." Already removing her gear as she walks back over to the lockers, depositing it in its place.

When Ygraine mentions that she isn't going, Agrippa winces slightly, knowing how he would feel if he wasn't slotted for a mission, "We'll get the Captain back, and you and I will have that long awaited match."
