24 hour fitness

I went to a 24 hr fitness today to mess around. I made several observations.

They had almost 60 pieces of cardio.
Does a recumbent bike really need armrests?
Lets do some bicep curls and bench press.
Not one real pullup bar in the whole place.
If you are a personal trainer shouldn't you look the part.
People don't know how to squat.
Kettlebells ROCK
You should flex in the mirror in between sets.
Don't sweat on anything!

HAHAH! I love it!
I went to a commercial gym when I was down at R-phase...it was free with the hotel stay. I nearly had an anxiety attack! All those obnoxious colors, and shiney machine things making noises, and the mirrors! oh the mirrors! and yeah, no real pull-up bar, only two squat racks, no DLing spot, and talk about some people checking me out. I prefer my buns NOT to be watch during deadlifts, thanks very much. YIKES! I was out after 3 sets of pull ups and DL, and you'd think I was an alien by the looks I got! I guess I'm suppoed to "hang out" more in front of the mirror. My bad.

oh yeah, and one of the squat racks was being occupied by a bicep curler. What the hey?!?!?

it has been years since I've been in a gym. I got the same looks as I banged out pistols and one arm straight bar presses. Yeah there was a bicep guy in the squat rack as well.

I havent been in a gym since I closed mine in 1998.

Does this mean that 24 hour fitness would kick me out for doing Bob Angels??? Snow angels with sweat... I have issues!
