Diary of a Confused Gym Goer
AUTHOR: JESSE TEIXEIRA
I’m motivated and excited to get in the gym for a killer workout. It’s been a few days because I’ve been so busy! First, it will be twenty minutes on the treadmill, then about twenty-five minutes of lower body exercises, and I’ll finish with a solid fifteen minutes of core work.
As I approach the treadmill, I’m immediately disappointed…
There is only one left open and it is between two people running at 90 mph. Frustrated and feeling uncomfortable jogging lightly on a treadmill between two gazelles, I head off to the bikes – not what I wanted to do but it works. Ten minutes into the bike I’m bored because I wanted to be on the treadmill, so I bag it and head for the lower body area. Perfect- All of the equipment is open so I’m going to get my squats done. I read the brief description on the squat machine and start with a light weight ten times. As I finish rep 9, I feel like somebody’s watching me. I glance over my shoulder and sure enough, someone is watching me.
Well, this is awkward. I’m just going to finish and pretend he isn’t watching me. As I rack the bar he starts walking over.
Oh no, what is he going to say?
“You know you’re doing that all wrong, right?”
I know what I’m doing, right? Wait, is he right? Should I be doing something different?
Maybe he is wrong; how does he know?
He walks away so I decide to do another set, but I feel like I’m being watched, and yep, he is totally still watching me!
This is uncomfortable; I’m just going to skip legs and finish my core work at home. I lasted twenty minutes in the gym today… disappointed.
Obviously, this is an experience no one should ever have.
