A Little Friday Fun

I admit it. I go to the gym. (sigh) I also get outside once and a while and go hiking or take a run around the park. No really, I do. I swear!

I used to go to this really crap gym down the street from where I work. The equipment was never really clean, some of it was broken. The staff was surly and most of the people were just too cool to bother being friendly to anyone. Combine all that with my love of public dressing rooms (shudder!) and you can imagine how much I looked forward to working out. Oh. The joy.

Something that has always seemed funny to me is how we get in our cars and drive to the gym so we can get on a treadmill and run in place. One of my favorite things about going to the tenth level of workout hell (a.k.a. my old gym), was the cool kids on the treadmills. They'd be all dolled up in their designer sweatpants with their iPods and imported French water just killin' themselves running, yet they were getting nowhere. I like to think of it as a metaphore for life.

I came across this video on YouTube today and could not stop giggling. Finally someone has put the acursed treadmill to good use.


OK Go - Here It Goes Again

LOL!!! I love that video. And, I totally agree with you on this issue. The whole concept of going to a gym is beyond me, which would explain why I don't go to one:)

Meesh, that is G-O-O-D good! I laughed good at this.

I used to belong to a gym, in fact several over the course of my many years of life in this incarnation on this planet but it's been YEARS... for myriad reasons.

I figger livin' in SoCal, i don't really "need" a gym, tho there are days in the winter when it rains that i don't really feel like gettin' out there and workin' out.

Thanks for the smile today!!

I love it! Makes me almost want to go to the gym just to try that out. Think they'll let me?
