More about my amusing gym..
I posted up 12 things that amuse me about Planet Fitness a little while ago. Other night I was reminded of another one:
13 – People missing the point of going to the gym – I go to one in the back of of a strip mall. PF is roughly dead center of the parking which wraps around and beyond two sides of it. No parking spot is more than 60 seconds from the entrance at a casual pace. The parking lot also has a one way system that sort of drags you around from the two entrances. The lanes are sort of barely two way, really 1 1/2 cars wide. The number of times the entire system is gummed up by people insisting on waiting for that perfect spot right outside the door is ridiculous. Even on days with great weather. Why are you going to the gym again? And you can’t walk for 60 seconds either way? I mean I will take a spot if it happens to come up on my way around the one way but I don’t wait or go slow for one.
As a side note, renewed my membership, all amusement aside. For $99 for a year, in NY, it’s a steal. And it comes with a free t-shirt (excellent for projects where shirt will get slopped on).
