Gym has finally re-opened, re-furbished.

Spent most of my time there TRYING to work out how to use this bastard new fangled shitty digital equipment.

Why then please, WHY do we need multi function touch screens that offer everything including 'user videos' fitness training programmes, tv, radio, games, Yahoo, Faceache, Google and the internet in general when we're simply TRYING to get fit?  Shrugs:  Banghead

Another "free trial" weekend at the gym / pool  eeek:    cloud9:

What they should do is have a free weekend in early Jan when the guilt and resolutions kick in. Will they?

This geezer was getting changed ready for a shower in the gym last night.

As he peeled off his sweaty kit, me and this other bloke looked at him in astonished amazement as he peeled of a LARGE RED BIN LINER that he was wearing beneath his t shirt. eeek:

"Helps me sweat more for a more rapid weight loss" was the explantion.

Sweat more?

No piggin' shit Sherlock! lol:

I'm rapidly becoming disillusioned with this gymnasium membership shite tbh, with precious little weight loss, all not helped by this PT I've employed when he now tells me that 95% of the fancy pants equipement in there is just totally uneccessary, but 'looks good' to attract the sheeple.

I've 'plataued' (sp) now like everyone does...apparently.

Apart from the rowing machine, bike, and tread mill, he reckons the rest could be replaced with a medicine ball, and that's what the main emphasis is now on.
200 bastard manouvers with one of them last night, but they excercise your entire body.
No wonder I'm aching all over this morning.

Point is, I could go and buy one of them for meself, and use it at home!

He doesn't rate this swimming malarky too highly either, and reckons that's what may have caused me ongoing neck problems. eeek:
