I have First Nations to thank for the title . The powers that be had closed the Beasts Gymnasium for three days of refurbishment.It was a perfectly good functional no frills gym.
I was less than impressed by the following 'improvements'
1.New carpets - it looks exactly the same as the old carpet but seems to have a very nasty chemical smell to it but I guess if the old one was wearing out.......
2.Artwork - well fuck me sideways , I thought I was there to train and sweat . Who has time for artwork ? its a fecking gym.
3.Mood lighting - some idjit has replaced some of the lights with coloured bulbs , making it dark and gloomy , I will now spend half my time wandering into bits of equipment and groping around in the gloaming . One wonders what mood they were going for, other than a bad one.
4.Sanitising Gel. It is now unacceptable to sweat apparently one is supposed to immediately rush to your nearest gel dispenser and wipe down every surface you may have sullied.The fact that you are now be in danger of sticking to or sliding off of the equipment has occurred to no one , but at least you wont encounter a germ of any stripe - god forbid. What is wrong with this ridiculous 'no risk' society , I would prefer to have a fully functioning immune system , you only get that if it is constantly challenged.
All the gyms and health clubs have been wooing the yummy mummy market (middle class bored brainless housewives) to keep the places full while everyone else is at work , unfortunately what follows is non sense like points 2 -4 , whatever next coordinated throw cushions on the bench press , Laura Ashley gym mats ????? .
Its a gym , not your front room , its supposed to be functional , cant you just carry on ruining the environment with your gas guzzling 4x4's and bringing up lazy ,illiterate,undisciplined over weight offspring
AND LEAVE MY GYM ALONE
