As most of you know, I've been pretty dedicated to going to the gym at my PT office. And you may also remember me saying how I am one of the younger patients there. Since I've been going there for a while now, I wanted to continue to share with you some more of my thoughts about the gym (and the people there).
1. I notice that everyone else at the gym carries around a blue chart with them. On the chart it says which machines they should be working on, how many reps, and how much weight. I've been going
here for months and never got a blue chart. Perhaps they think I am young enough to remember what I am suppose to do?
2. I totally understand why people grunt while lifting weights. I try really hard not too. Sometimes I hold my breath so I don't make an unnecessary noise!
3. I find it funny that the elderly folks come to the gym just to socialize. They aren't even dressed to work out. They have a few chairs by the window and they
sit there and eat snacks. I saw a box of donuts sitting there the other day. One lady even sits and does her check book.
4. Speaking of the older folks, there are a few ladies that actually do come to work on the equipment (their little blue chart in hand, of course). And they show up wearing their khakis and blouses with their Nikes. I think "Now you went to the effort to put sneakers on, why don't you want to put comfortable clothes on".
5. The exercise bike that I use sits next to the PT assistance desk. We always talk while I ride the bike. The sad part is that I am always doing hill workouts on the bike so my breathing is always labored and I can barely get a complete sentence out. This assistant must think that I am an idiot or that I don't communicate very well....lol
What thoughts would you have? -M
