Among our 12 joint new year’s resolutions, “join[ing] a gym and stick[ing] to it” weighs heavy on me – not for F though. Just the other day I went with him to check out a new gym that has opened up called NonStop Gym. Not only are they operating from a brand-new facility with an automated fingerprint recognition system at the door, the monthly fee (if you sign up for a year) is just 49 CHF and, as the name would suggest, the gym is open 24 hours.
I went with the intention of signing up for the year but there’s just something about working out in a gym that I can’t come to terms with – I prefer resistence training, working out in the open. Now if I could just coax myself out of our cozy apartment to go for a run… I definitely will once the weather is warmer (or so I always say).
F went for the first time at around 10 p.m. one night and said that when he arrived there were about 5 people in the gym, including him, and that by the time he left he was the only one there. Avoid gym rush hour and you’ll be just fine!
