New Gym Equipment

I’ve been going to the gym at the Community Recreation Center in our county seat (about 12 miles away) for the past few months.  They were recently closed for a week and a half for maintenance, during which they had all new exercise equipment installed.  The old equipment had apparently been there since the gym opened 18 years ago.

New treadmills
New treadmills (and new flat screen TVs)
Monitor on the new treadmills

More of the new weight machines, plus my nephew.

One of the other members mentioned that this new equipment is being leased, so if anything breaks down, etc., they can get it repaired or replaced right away. That’s nice, because the old treadmills, for example, could be kind of erratic as to which features were going to work that day when you were using them.

Normally we work out for about one hour when we go, but today we were having so much fun trying out all the equipment that we kept it up for an hour and a half before I finally decided that we had to get going.  (I do have work that needs to get done.)

I never would have thought it would happen, but I actually look forward to going  to the gym regularly now, and I actually felt antsy during the week and a half that they were closed.  If I can keep this up, I should be in great shape by next summer. 🙂

"Dunrobin MacDhai" is a name I picked for myself decades ago, when I was in the SCA, in tribute to my Scots heritage. I always liked the Scottish name Dunrobin, and MacDhai is a Gaelic variation on my family's Clan name. I am a gay man in my sixties who finally accepted himself and came back out of the closet after more than 30 years of celibacy. A lover of Liberty, I am an anarchist and do not believe in the myth of "authority", whether it's the "State" or organized religion.
