upon getting to know a new gym

April 20, 2009

There’s always that somewhat separate sectioned area of gyms filled with muscly men lifting giant weights. I find this area downright intimidating. I thought that the summer I spent working in a gym and dragging around those giant weights had helped me get past this. Apparently the intimidation is inherent.

It did, however, help today to see the embarrassed grin on one particularly buff man who was lifting weights on a machine, and his friend took a break from talking on his cell phone to the rhythm of his crunches to point out the sign above his head: “This machine for women only.”

Learned Fact of the day: It’s impossible to do the stair stepper machine not to the beat of the music you’re listening to.

New Life Goal: Embark on a mission to find stair-stepping-paced songs.
