At one time or another, we’ve all been there. Some of us still go often. Yet more of us go once each quarter but put “3x per week” on our dating profiles.
It’s The Gym. Whether you patronize fancy-schmancy places like LA Fitness or that budget shithole Planet Fitness (like I do), the experience is largely the same – only the sartorial quality of the front desk staff, bathroom fixtures, and monthly payments vary significantly.
Unfortunately, the majority of that common experience is a frustrating one. There’s almost zero upside to The Gym, actually… maybe a communal sense of progress and a synergy of motivation? Yeah, that’s pushing it. It mostly sucks.
