OK, I just called up NYSC to get my name on the class list for tomorrow morning’s spin class at 9:15…so we’re talking almost 24 hours in advance.
And I wind up #5 on the waiting list…WTF??? C’mon, isn’t everyone supposed to be sleeping in on Saturday morning?
And this seems to have been the trend for the entire month. Yep, it’s the onslaught of the “resolution people”…the reason why I get shut out of spin classes or have to wait forever for a cardio machine when people don’t want to follow the 30 minute limit (and then give me a look when I remind them of said limit.)
I do respect the fact that people want to make changes for the better…but for those of us who work out year round, it is a little frustrating when routine gets interrupted due to people who most likely will give it up after a month. And the gyms don’t seem to meet the increased demand for that time either…
In previous years it hasn’t bothered me-but this time around, I’m more dependent on the gym than before!! (Thank god I never canceled my membership…)
