Okay, we’re tired of the big chains. For too long, we’ve had to deal with the likes of L.A. Fitness and Gold’s Gym. They’re overpriced and under-quality. Fortunately these days we have a few more options. Gone are the days when you had to go to some muscle factory where very little working out is actually going on but a lot of self-admiration and chit chat is taking place. People aren’t re-stacking the dumbbells, some guy is texting on the bench press, and the 5-o’clock warriors overwhelm the place when they arrive, leaving few machines or free weights for the rest of us.
And you pay $30-50 per month for that? It’s shameful. Truthfully, the big gyms have been plaguing America for decades. We’re athletic and vain creatures so we want to look our best and we’re willing to fork over a good amount of cash in order to do so. But the experience has been lacking. The staff are a lot more like salesman than they are athletic trainers or dietitians. They seem lacking in advice about the best things to eat or the proper way to build strength and endurance. Asking them a question too often feels like you’re interrupting something or giving them a chore.
What are the alternatives?
But we still have to find a place to work out. You could try getting a home gym, but they’re overpriced and take up loads of space. Plus, they break too often and you don’t have your own personal maintenance guy on hand. You could open your own gym and start a business… but… no. You don’t have that kind of time on your hands. Do you?
But the good news is, we found at least one good one. And this video shows just how cool it is. There’s an incredible variety at this local gym, and that means never (hopefully) getting tired of workouts. It also means constant muscle confusion, which I’m told is a good thing. But seriously, this is a place with young and old, big and small, athletic and not. If there’s one place you want to call home that’s going to provide a supportive and nurturing environment for you, no matter what your physical goals are.. it’s this place.
We highly recommend you go check it out. There’s really no reason not to treat yourself to a place like this you can go to get back in shape and stay that way. You need it, I need it, everybody needs it, and this place provides it… in spades.
