At the gym, timing is everything. Although I wake up really early (4:35 AM) to get to my spinning class on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, the crowd has changed in the last month. There are just more people, which is good and bad. Early morning exercise classes are usually exempt from the rush, but there is still a noticeable increase in those classes, too.
Having to fight for a stationary bike, treadmill, shower, or locker may not be a big problem for lots of people, but such competition tends to reduce my enthusiasm for going to the gym in the first place.
Anyone else feel the same way I do?
Oh, and lest you think that I haven't explored alternatives, I have. I have everything I need to work out at home, but I am MUCH more motivated to work out when the bed isn't upstairs calling my name in a cozily seductive voice. The gym is on my way to work, and even if I have to go into the gym to get my morning shower, I have to go in.
