An influx of up-to-date gym members after December

I have been a member at the local fitness center since its grand opening almost 8 years ago.

Although the membership fees have increased a lot, I have been willing to spend my money for improvements. The gym continues to make serious updates to their amenities plus machines. I have access to tanning beds, massage therapy, personal trainers plus an on-site nutritionist. I can sign up for any number of group fitness classes such as spin, yoga, HIIT, interval training, boot camp training, plus more. There are strength training machines that target identifiable muscles in my arms, shoulders, back plus legs. I can use free weights, kettlebells, weighted poles, medicine balls or battle ropes. For calorie burning, I have the choice of a wide variety of stationary bikes, treadmills, stair-climbers, ellipticals plus rowing machines. There is even an indoor running track, speed and heavy bags plus a miniature rock-climbing wall. For the majority of the year, I am totally enthusiastic about the gym. Every February, the gym advertises a sizable discount on membership to lure in more up-to-date clients. There is an influx of members in December. Most of these people are not focused on physical fitness. They have made a New Year’s resolution that they won’t keep. They make it so hard to find an available locker room. I need to wait for an empty shower stall. They neglect to clean out the devices when they are done with them. Many of the machines are occupied plus often being used improperly. Most of these up-to-date members will disappear by the end of February. It is a relief when the gym is back to just the regular folks who are extreme about their workouts.
