Not Too Bad

I had my first workout since the gym reservation system was suspended. I arrived around 3. The first hour wasn’t bad at all. The gym was sparsely populated. Towards the end of my workout, the arrival rate started to pick up. By this time I had moved onto cardio, which I felt safe doing as this area has less demand most of the time. Overall, it was a positive experience. I’ll need to keep working out in midafternoon before the after work crowd arrives.

16 Hour Fitness

My gym, 24 Hour Fitness, no longer requires appointments to work out. They have also stopped cleaning the gym every 90 minutes and limiting attendance. Members are now free to go at any time and pack the place to the rafters. I guess I missed the CDC announcement about COVID-19 not being as lethal as it used to be. And it hasn’t been open 24 hours a day for a long time. It’s only open 16 hours a day but 16 Hour Fitness doesn’t sound very marketable. I’ve changed my work out schedule to avoid Monday and Wednesday as they are historically the busiest days. I’ll give a go for the next week or two. If it’s too busy, I’ll find a new gym. Change is constant. Change is good. Right?

I hit the gym yesterday. I had an appointment for a 3:30 p.m. workout. The gym was sparsely populated. There was sufficient space to socially distance. The members were following the new rules which stipulate wiping down the equipment after use with disinfectant provided by the gym. Everyone, that is, except two sixty-something fucks. Going from machine to machine, not wearing masks and not wiping down the machines after use. Both were overweight and did not appear to be in the best of health. They looked like the target market for a Covid infection, yet neither took any precautions. I avoided them as I pushed through my work out. I managed to finish my work out in less than the allotted hour. Starting today, workout appointments are extended to 90 minutes which means an hour workout plus 30 minutes of cardio.

Seven Plagues

This is typical of the stupid fucks who work out at 24 Hour Fitness. Leaving a 45 pound weight in the middle of the floor so that others might trip over it. What the hell is wrong with these inconsiderate people? If you’re strong enough to use a weight this heavy, you need to rerack the weight when you’re done. People who do this deserve to have seven plagues enter their life.

A New Rack

There’s a couple who work out at my gym I refer to as the Dolls. As in Barbie and Ken. She’s a tall lean blond who always manages to incorporate blue into her outfit. He’s a few inches taller than his wife and is handsome, hairy and hyper masculine.

I hadn’t seen the dolls for a while. They reappeared this week. Mrs. Doll got new titties. She used to have a small bust that seemed perfectly proportioned for her lean body. Being a gay man, I’m far from an expert on bra sizes, but now, I’m guessing she’s a full C possibly a D cup.

Mrs. Doll always wears form fitting clothes which show off her slim toned body. Now, all I seem to notice is her bust. I generally am not focused on the women’s breasts at the gym. I think her new rack may be too big for her body. I realize it’s her body and she is free to make any adjustments she deems necessary. I suspect the straight guys at the gym are loving her new look along with her husband.

I hit the gym yesterday afternoon after networking with a woman about possible opportunities at her firm. When I returned to the locker room my locker was not locked. I immediately thought I forgot to lock my locker. But no, my lock had been cut off and my cash was stolen. Thankfully, the thief left my credit card, license, car key and parking garage ticket. Another member also had his lock cut off and his cash stolen. I called the police after talking with the gym manager. Sadly, this is the third week lockers have been robbed. The security video was reviewed and suspects were identified. A woman distracted the front desk attendant while a man entered without checking in.

The good news is I only lost forty dollars and suspects have been identified. I could have lost a credit card and my car.

Sculptural installation at 24 Hour Fitness, mixed media on gym floor, 20,000 sq. ft., priceless

My gym should be renamed 24 Hour Filthy. The gym is disgustingly dirty. Allegedly, they have a cleaning crew. How does a cleaning crew miss dust bunnies in plain view? They probably need remedial training with a vacuum. Also disturbing is the fact that the personal trainers use the equipment on a daily basis. One would think the personal trainers would advise that management on the filth. How could the management be so clueless as to not recognize the issue?

Too Thin?

IMG_2759 (2)
I saw this woman at the gym yesterday while I was doing cardio. I’ve never seen her before. I was shocked by how thin she was yet she was doing cardio. I wondered if she was recovering from an illness, had an eating disorder, or was just a naturally thin person.
