There’s a [Crunch Fitness][crunch soma] next to Wikipedia that has got to be the unhappiest Crunch fitness in the world.
On most days, there are trainers standing outside it trying to convince you to join. But mostly they looked pissed off because the masses queuing up for Sushiritto are blocking their entrance. Sweaty overpriced gym vs. sushi in a giant flour tortilla? It’s simple math really.
I started wondering how that Crunch was still in business. Then it started to wonder why I wondered.
Finally, I came to the conclusion is that you can’t see anyone one of the treadmills from New Montgomery street. I think 90% of the reason people go to gyms is because they want to be seen. Even my local YMCA (which looks like it was built to double as a fallout shelter) situations the treadmills next to street side windows.
This [introvert] then realized a gym membership is not for him.
It would be interesting to give a personality test to gym rats and home workout DVD people.
