On Sunday night, i didn’t sleep because I had errands to run, and i didn’t feel like doing them in the afternoon. So, i kept myself awake throughout the early morning hours, and when morning rolled around, I decided to make extra use of the trip up town, and go to the gym.
So, i dialed the gym, and asked them if they had a free trial going on, because I had heard they offer free 1 week trials. The women on the phone told me about how they didn’t have any free 1 week trials during the holidays, but they do offer free 1 day trials. I told her I would stop by later in the day to put that free day to use.
So, i stalled around the house until noon, and at noon I got on the bike and went up town to buy mom’s birthday gift; A card for her cell phone. While there, I bought lunch because I hadn’t ate all day. After lunch, I rode bike all the way across town, locked my bike up outside, and went into the gym.
The gym was a real big fancy place. I was given my one day free subscription, and got to use all their fancy equipment. Among the fancy equipment I used was a recumbent bicycle, a stair master, some leg weight lifting machine, a treadmill, a arm weight lifting machine, and some regular old dumbbells.
Most time was spent on the bike, because that’s what I’m used to. I did two sessions on the bike, totaling about 15 miles, with an average speed of 115 rotations per minute. I can lift about 150 pounds with my legs, and I can lift about 90 pounds with my arms. I can also run for about 10 minutes, but i don’t remember the speed i had it set to, probably something embarrassing.
About an hour in, the receptionist women asked me if i was interested in a membership yet. I told her that I didn’t know. She pushed that $35 per month when signing up for 1 year was a pretty good deal. I told her that I knew people who have $15/month memberships, at places like golds gym. She told me that there wasn’t a golds gym around. I told her that I would see if i could get the money together.
After 3.5 hours of working out, i was pretty much covered in sweat, and ready to pass out. So, i left.
There is my report about the gym. I think i’ll go back up there next week, and see if I can get another free workout. If i can’t, I’ll have to pay $15, which won’t be very much fun. However, $5 per hour is kind of reasonable, but not really, so.. alright.
