Sweat

27 Jan

After my gym debacle, I found out about a local gym (named “Sweat“) that offers a free 7-day trial. And who can say no to free? Once we move in two weeks across town it will be about two blocks from my house (too convenient to say I can’t go). Plus, the gym’s website was super sweet (go check it out here). So today, I showed up and, after a brief tour, started out changing in the locker room. I hopped on the treadmill afterward for a brief 3-miler and then headed home.

Here are my thoughts so far:

The pros –

  • lots of machines
  • no problem getting machines – then again, I was there at non-rush hour on the snowiest day of the year
  • convenient location, right on Walnut Street

The cons –

  • the locker room… (it was pretty gross)
  • cost – super expensive (almost twice as much) compared to other local gyms
  • not that many great classes, plus they said they fill up quickly

The consensus? Undecided. I will say this though – their gym? Looked nothing like the pictures. Ahhh, isn’t that always the way? I didn’t take any pictures because I didn’t want them to know thinkĀ I was a super freak. I usually like to take my time with letting that cat out of the bag. Though they might have gotten an inkling when I waltzed outside post-workout in my running shorts and snow boots. I was completely aware that I looked ridiculous, but I wasn’t risking the disease infestation of that bathroom again to change back into my pants. Plus, I was hot. Who wants to put back on pants after a run? Anyway, imagine this combination (you know you like it):

And yes, apparently I own the same snow boots Kristen Stewart wears in New Moon. I’m obsessed, but not that obsessed to have known that… until now. Suddenly I feel infinitely cooler.

Anyway, enough about my weird dress choices and obsessions with teeny-bopper flicks. So, I suspect after the next six days are up I’ll be headed to the other local gym to see if I can’t get a trial there as well. Or, at the very least, buy a week pass there so I can give it a fair shot.

What about you? Have you ever had to run a gym comparison or was there an obvious choice? Were you giving it as much pain-staking thought as I seem to be?
