The powers that be finally (after almost two weeks) approved my application and activated my membership, so today was my first day getting use the Sony gym.
I lifted some weights, since we weren’t going to have a particularly strenuous day (then, of course, I had to go up into the perms to drop out cable), and I have to say I really enjoy the gym.
They’re missing a few bits of equipment that the other gym has that I like, but it’s super clean, and they were playing 80s hip-hop on the sound system, which was extra awesome.
The gym I go to – the normal gym – is fairly small and I know everyone, so it’s a friendly place.
I wave and smile at people, ask how they’re doing, chit-chat about workouts, progress, the weather, etc..
People at this gym are less smiley and chatty. Maybe it’s because I went during the lunch rush (we had a 2 pm call time so I got there at 12:30) and maybe folks were just trying to get in that workout on lunch, but they didn’t strike me as a particularly friendly bunch.
One lady, after I’d said hello, started and responded with “Oh, were you talking to me?”
Oops. Guess I’d better cool it with the friendly.
I finished my workout and then stretched on the super awesome weird cage thing that I really wish my gym would buy.
Sadly, it looks like most of the really good classes are at times when I’m going to be working, but I do love being able to work out and then walk five minutes to the stage.
I might regret the expenditure when it’s dead and I’m broke, but right now it’s so worth it.
