    The etymology of gym is interesting.

    from Greek gymnasion "public place where athletic exercises are practiced; gymnastics school", literally "to train naked", from gymnos "naked".

    I hear spandex and leggings are making a comeback. I'd invest in some if I were you along with a headband and a Dirty Dancing CD

    The music in there was very confusing. I'd expected Schubert or Liszt.

    There's a sunbed option, and lotions on sale with different colouring potential. I quite liked the Hot Totty shade. I may explore that avenue once I'm more fit.

    I spent a half hour being introduced to the equipment. I am to return on Friday for more groundwork after which I shall report further.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Avoid the tanning option. It makes you smell like biscuits.

    My niece is very into this working out stuff. She suggests the title of this thread should be corrected to "Joy through Strength"

    She can be seen showing off quite a bit on Facebook.

    Spot,
    How is the gym going? Good for you and keep it up, your body will thank you.
    I too joined a gym, back in February.
    I am really liking it, I have not lost weight, that was not my goal, but am doing a body transformation, and toning and strengthening.
    Have you found workouts you like? Hate? Got any success stories to share? Brag about?
    Do share, it's encouraging to share with others who totally get it.
