Gym Pods Are the Future of Going to the Gym Under COVID and ... OH. HELL. NO!
Like many of you, I miss my gym. I only just recently found a pair of adjustable dumbbells that wasn't a cheap Chinese knockoff or some jackwagon trying to rip me off on eBay. I found much happiness in once again being able to lift things up and put them down while I play punk and hip-hop at a loud volume. So I feel you if you're starting to lose your mind a little not having that "third place" to go to (see NEW JERSEY GYM REOPENS IN VIOLATION OF EXECUTIVE ORDERS. COPS REACTED WITH TRUE PATRIOTISM! and NEW JERSEY GYM OWNER FACES JAIL TIME FOR LETTING PEOPLE WORK OUT). But "gym pods"? I was invited to an open house at my gym to see what changes they made to protect us from the 'rona, but if I show up and it's this John Travolta/boy in the bubble shit, I'ma wild out.
California gym reopens with individual pods to maintain social distancing https://t.co/hDj6Z7uNH8 https://t.co/6NGZVlXkKg— New York Post (@New York Post)1592328360.0
A California gym has reopened with individual workout pods for clients to maintain social distancing while getting shredded, according to a report.
Using shower curtains and pipes, Inspire South Bay Fitness in Redondo Beach has installed nine pods to assign to members when they visit for workout classes.
Sapsin said the shower curtains were a cheaper alternative to Plexiglas dividers, allowing them to construct 6-foot-wide pods — each of which has its own dumbbells and other equipment.
Okay, so you get a bench and some dumbbells and THAT'S LITERALLY WHAT I HAVE AT HOME! Why in the name of all that is good and sweet in Odin's beard am I going to pay money for a gym membership when I have better equipment at home, where I DON'T have to work out in a bubble? Or even wear shorts, if I don't want to. Not that I actually do that.
Also, I can't stress this enough, I was working out in my gym at the exact moment they shut the gyms down. You know what everyone there was already doing? SOCIAL DISTANCING AND WIPING THE MACHINES DOWN. That was three months ago. And almost nothing they told us about the New York City virus has been true.
It's time to open up the gyms, but pop all this air bubble shit.
