Went to the gym today. OH MY GOD was it packed. I’ve never seen it that busy.
Granted, it was around 11am on a Saturday, which is not my usual time at the gym. Saturdays are usually my days off, but I took one on Thursday, so today is make-up day.
On one hand, I was almost pissed. "All these freaking people, I’m never gonna get on a machine." Not to mention there were small kids on the stair masters and elliptical (now that’s down-right rude). What business does an 8 year old have on an elliptical machine?
Then I realized. These folks are obviously part of the New Years resolution crowd (not usually there at 5am when I am). This is a YMCA (yup, they beat Gold’s where I live) and it is family oriented. Besides, if it takes bringing your kids to the Y to get into shape, then more power to you. Keep it up and hang in there. Don’t let the resolution fall by the way side.
