Don’t get the mask people at gyms. If
You are that scared you probably shouldn’t be at the gym in the first place touching everything

Talked to the new manager at my gym yesterday. He gets calls daily from folks asking to freeze their account for another month or refund them for June. They are scared to come in.

Well, at least all the constant wiping down will keep us all from getting staph.  Fucking gyms should’ve been doing that any way.  Gym no longer smells like a micro lab now.

That's good to hear--up until the Monday before everything closed, I was one of the few that wiped down after using every machine/bench (and nothing crazy, but definitely did it). For 2 days, it was pretty funny to see everyone else doing it. Haven't had the opportunity to check post-reopening (24s still closed, not sure Planet is worth the trip just yet), but will be interested to see if anything has changed....

I guess my gym polices itself, and if someone does any of that shit they will hear it from a member. if they are new (and there are lots of them RN)  it will be polite. typically it's a pretty tight ship- dumbbells racked in order, plates racked by size, bars stripped etc.     

 

 

That's a fucking badass gym.  I go pretty far out of my way to workout there when I'm on business in Houston.  Definitely jealous I have nothing similar in my immediate area.

Lol that’s ‘uppity’ attitude?  To rack weights etc?  Give me uppity everytime.  And old heavy weight sets have a soul.  Come on man...

They shuttered the downtown Dallas location last year I think then the mockingbird location was sunk just now. That leaves a new one in Kessler area and another one on forest/75... which will result in the loss of my membership. Totally pulled out of the affluent/active/young (not humblebrag) area of Dallas.

That mockingbird gym took up almost half of a 2nd floor and the entirety of the 3rd floor of a shopping center, had been there 15 yrs probably.

I guess they can expand the escape room now.  should be badass with the extra space.

Hmmm

 

dude bro at the gym keeps alternating between tech and aggy gear. And a former arkie player keeps wearing nothing but hog shit everyday.

I think they should open up a CBD super store in the space, kill off the other two CBD stores on the first floor. that whole building is a trip though.... a cleaners and a separate tailor, two cbd shops, a tanning salon, massage parlor, smoothie king then a realtor and escape room on 2nd floor. all that crap stuff in an area where vacant residential lots are ~$400k min.
