As I walked into the gym today, I saw a sign: “You must sign in to use elliptical/treadmill due to high demand. 30 minute time limit.”
Wow. As I made my way to the locker room I walked past the packed out “cardio” area. A few minutes later I entered the weight lifting room. There was a whopping 3 people in there; all on machines — of course.
Before I continue, I must make a confession:
Several years ago I used to spend several hours a week on an elliptical machine. I thought I was doing the “right thing” for keeping my body lean and healthy.
I continued this for probably a year or so. One day, I realized my true hatred of spending so much time on a machine. I never liked it to begin with, but now I really hated it.
