    LONG STORY with PICS

    So I keep neglecting my damn cardio because my gym has new summer hours. I always get my weight routine in, but by the time I get to my cardio work there is only 15 minutes or 20 minutes left. So I just screw it. My first gym has every kind of equipment you could want (besides a monolift), some guys that are pretty big to help with bigger squats and benches. Everyones really nice and doesn't screw around.

    So I needed a new gym for cardio. I signed up and got raped on a price at a 24 hr place a half block from my appt. $200 bucks for 3 months, but I get untlimited tanning lol (like I care). But the reason its high is because its downtown is a very expensive area, and I didn't wanta walk. Im also moving soon when I graduate to the burbs, so I just need something temp for 5-6 months.

    Anyways I think im the only member. They said they had 200 members, Ive been there during the day twice to get a card and talk them down on price, and then twice to work out at night. I haven't seen one person there. There equipment is seriously lacking, no squatt rack ( a smith machine instead), no incline bench, no lat pull down machine, cable machines but nothing opposite from eachother so you can't do anything intresting, they are 2 feet from eachother.

    I should of toured the place before I paid and signed up. The shower room is a coed shower, this is it :

    Yes, that is one shower inside a closet :rofl:

    The tanning room is this :

    BUTTTT I signed up only to do cardio here, and here it is, every damn cardio machine has a freaking 17 inch lcd on it. WITH cable tv!

    Watching ROB and BIG and comedy central while jogging makes a hr fllyyyyyyy by :bowdown:

    The only thing that sucks is there is 4 bars on this street, when I go at night I get all the drunks stopping and watching me work out. Atleast the drunk girls last night flashing me while I jogged was nice!

    It makes a hr of 135-140 bpm cardio seem like fun as hell. The plan is to workout my normal schedule, and come back at night to do a hr of cardio while watching my favorite shows since I will be laying in bed watching tv anyways around 11-12 pm before I pass out. It even has AV inputs, so considering I record my lectures in class occasionally I can even catch up on engineering while working out.

    TV's while doing cardio are distracting as hell, imo.
