I have tried to use the gym now and then. More out of guilt of having taken their membership! I come home at 7 pm and by then I am mentally and physically tired. By the time I change and rush to the gym (they close at 9pm) it’s close to 7:30pm. The gym is crowded then and you have to stand and wait for the treadmill or one of the other cardio equipments to get free so you can pounce and occupy it. Overall, the gym isn’t bad. However, I wish they provided paper towels or even hand towels so one can clean the sweaty equipment after its previous use.
But I am not complaining. I should try and get up early in the morning so I can use the equipment between 6am-8am. I am lazy and need to change my sleep habits.
The gym is less than 10 minutes walk from my home, so I can’t complain. Now if only I could use it regularly.
After completing my Marathon in Oct. ’08, I had been physically inactive as I found it difficult to run in the cold weather. Unfortunately there was no Gym close to my home that I could join. Now, Bally’s have opened this center less than 10 minutes walk from my home and I did go and check them out. It’s a decent place. However, I had read horror stories on the web about their membership rules and how many were lured into long term contracts from which they could not get out. That made me hesitant. I tried to see if I could join them through my employer’s network, but this being a new center, it was not in the network. So I called the network provider, spoke to their customer rep and now 2-3 days later I have enrolled on a month-to-month contract.
I am going to start using the gym and start getting in shape. Wish me luck !
I will post my views on the gym as I start using them. Watch this space.
