Like many regular gym goers, I don’t go to the gym regularly. In fact, I haven’t been since 2014. But, new year’s resolutions being what they are and the fact that I needed a new pair of sneakers (does anyone call them that anymore?) I went back to the gym this week.
The gym’s small sporting-goods store where I got my last pair of sneakers has closed, but its little smoothie shop has expanded. I can now get an 800-calorie coffee and cookies after my workout!
It’s a sad commentary on American fitness, I suppose. But then again, I may be going to the gym a lot more often this year.
