So last night, I met my foe at the gym.
Yes, my foe is an inanimate object and it does intimidate me. Our Y has quite a few classes available and when I work the earlier shift, the Monday/Wednesday class works for me. It can range from 45 minutes to 1 hour and it kicks my butt every time. The class before ours was so full that they had to turn people away. Over the last 2 months, our gym has become increasingly busy. While there is plenty of equipment to go around, it’s definitely not as comfortable as it was before.
The Husband did a little work but ended up heading home before me because he couldn’t take the crowds at the circuit machines. This is sad because I am definitely at my work out peak after work hours. I am ready to go and can definitely commit to working out. However, I can’t get the Husband’s committment to work out in a busy gym and he won’t do the classes.
We are going to try again tonight an hour later and see how it works out. Working out at 6:00 cuts down on the crowds but it also cuts down on my energy that I am willing to commit. The next 2 weeks are so are going to be rough on the schedule due to the family extravaganza but we need to get our workouts in. I’ve don 2/4 workouts this week with 1 planned for tonight and 1 for Saturday morning.
How do you deal with a busy gym?
