Rules of Conquering the Gym


This is the time of the year that people who hate the gym think about going.  Sweating is a good way to begin 2012.  If you are going to join or are returning after a long hibernation, here are some things to consider:

  • No one in the history of gyms has ever lost a pound while reading “The New Yorker” and slowly pedaling a recumbent bicycle.  No one.
  • “Great job!” is trainer speak for “its not polite for me to laugh at you.”
  • If you see an indoor rock climbing wall, you’re either in a really cool gym or a romantic comedy starring Kate Hudson.
  • Everyone sees you secretly racing the old people in the pool.
  • Don’t buy $150 sneakers, $100 yoga pants and $4 water.  Muscle shirts are for people with muscles, and rhythm guitarists.
  • Nope, that is not a “recovery energy bar with with antioxidant dark chocolate”.  That’s a chocolate bar!
