The past few days I couldn't go to my women's gym since they're closed for renovations. I didn't want to fall behind in my strength training, so I went to the community centre instead. That, of course, is co-ed. I don't have any problems working out with men; after all at karate we work out together, punch each other, throw each other down and help each other up. But those two days in a co-ed gym were very different. The machines were all unfamiliar, and I swear the weights are increasing in bigger intervals. Of course they're all set for 6'5" body builders so I had to reset every one of them both for my size and the weight I'm using. Felt like putting the toilet seat down, over and over and over.
I've always thought gym membership is expensive but for $42 per month I can go as often as I want. Here I had to pay almost $6 for one visit! (Thanks to the HST )
Anyway, my gym will re-open on Monday. I know I will appreciate it even more now.
