I’ve been going to the gym regularly for three or four months. It’s the first time in several years that I’ve settled into a good workout routine. I’m making solid progress, so I want to continue. Unfortunately, my gym isn’t making that easy for me.
I chose this gym because it’s the only economical option that is a convenient distance from both home and school…but I truly hate it. The people who work there are lazy, it’s dirty, and the other people who work out there do really annoying things.
I compulsively clean the gym every day. When I arrive, there are weights, dumbells, and bars all over the floor. Sometimes every single rack in the gym is empty because the weights are all spread out across the floor. Not only is this dangerous, it also aggravates my mild case of OCD.
Another incredibly annoying thing is the music. There is never any music that gets me pumped up. It’s always Justin Beiber, Korean boy groups, or music as un-manly as Celine Dion. Sometimes they’ll switch it up and put on some girl-group music.
Yesterday, I saw the most annoying thing yet. This isn’t something that negatively affects my ability to work out, but it still made me a little crazy just to watch.
I’m really hoping lately that a decent new gym will open in my area.
Until next time.
