Sometimes you have to do something to stem the tide that is beginning to flow against you. Coaches in sports do it sometimes by calling a time out. Firefighters in the mountains and forests do it by lighting small fires to clear away whatever a big one might want to consume. I do it by coming on here before it gets out of hand to tell everyone who is a gym rat to settle down.
Take a chill pill man. Or woman. Have you never read the disclaimer? Here is the deal, I wrote a post the other day about how I think people who go to the gym are, well, fucking morons. Unsprisingly, there was some backlash, as there is from time to time. But this was in a form that I am not totally used to. First of all, there were two "no" votes on my little "check yes or no" system, which is super rare and a half in itself. Usually no one gives a shit. Secondly, I received some backlash personally, which is ever rarer, in which people came to the Worldwide Headquarters and expressed their displeasure with what I have to say.
Listen, I know that I am not the most physically fit person in the history of the world, but you still aren't going to catch me in a gym paying money to do shit that I can do outside for essentially free even in the winter when it's cold because a long time ago someone invented the fucking hat.. And that's my opinion. I understand that not everyone is going to think like me or have the same opinion as I will and that's okay. I understand that maybe, just maybe, going to the gym is the only way that works for you to be healthy and exercise. More power to ya. Maybe you don't own a bike, maybe you are allergic to the sun, maybe you like to run for hours and hours and never have ever gotten anywhere. Maybe you like to watch your muscle grow, or maybe it's safer to life weights in the gym because there is someone there to spot for you, but I don't care. I still do and always will think that it is a waste of money.
So if you like the gym, and it works for you, then by all means keep on keeping on. It doesn't mean that I am going to stop liking you or think anything less of you, I just think that you are wasting your precious money, that's all. So settle down, relax, take a lap or two, and it will all be okay. Enjoy your exercycle.
