I’ve decided to start tracking the number of people I help at the gym on the two machines I see them misuse the most – the calf extension and the torso rotation. Yesterday, I watched a woman put her face into the pads because she didn’t know to lower them and I stopped her before she got going.
The danger of this kind of tracking is it becomes an ego boost rather than a good deed. And indeed, I am tending to think ‘@$$@ can these people not see the %$#$@ picture on the machine right next to their face!?!?’, but I talk to them nicely enough on the outside and am friendly about it. I think it’s good for me to build up a little good deed balance tho. So we’ll see how it goes. My count is on the side under my weight stats. We’ll see if any other good ideas for tracking come up.
