Yet Another Reason For Hermit Week

I finally gave in to "the man" and got a Gold's Gym membership a month or so ago. Yes, yes. Go ahead and tell me about how Gold's is an evil corporation run by the devil, and about how I should have gotten a 24 Hour Fitness membership. I've heard this a lot.

And yet, despite the fact that the Gold's franchise in Utah may be owned by the prince of darkness, I'm actually enjoying myself. Does that make me a bad person?

While I may be enjoying my time at Gold's (mostly due to the fantastic cardio cinema), there are certain things I don't appreciate. Certain things that make me want to just do my work outs at home with my handy dandy exercise DVDs. (Pilates for wimps, anyone? It's a really lame workout, actually. Don't buy it.)

What certain things, you may ask? Well, for starters, I don't appreciate people walking around naked in the locker rooms, particularly when there are perfectly good changing stalls available. Oh, and particularly when said naked people have a lot of piercings. PUT SOME CLOTHES ON.

Secondly, I don't appreciate people who come to the gym to make out. Really, friends? Is the bench press REALLY the best place for you to make out passionately on a Wednesday at 4:00 pm? And, if this is the case, at least have the decency to sanitize the bench after you're finished. That would be appreciated.

Anyway, if you want to avoid such awkward situations, you have the Hermit Month excuse for the next 12 days. Milk it for all it's worth.

Happy Hermit-ing

Ah, working out is one area where I'm safely on the hermit side of things. I only work out alone unless I'm playing sports. That's my policy. Hermitized!

After having a Gold's pass for three years... I still think 24 is better... sorry ;)

BUT! My great friend Kass teaches Zumba at Gold's so you HAVE to go!! She is the best! (I would come but my membership expired a few weeks ago) :(
