You may have noticed while reading the very infrequent (but lengthy!) journal entries that I have not gone to a gym since about May, when crazy-ass apartment moving activities and expenditures made additional exercise unnecessary and furthermore rendered gym too expensive and also somehow more of a pain in the ass to get to than before. So I quit and decided to rely on my trusty not-getting-fat-during-summertime tendencies for the time being. I guess it’s worked, but I know from experience that I can’t trust my ass past August. So now I’m looking for either a new gym or some kind of fitness class here in Chicago. Any ideas? These are my specs:
In general: Must be pretty much in this part of the city and not downtown. Gym: Needs to be cheap and have decent parking. Class: Anything in the evenings where I can jump the hell around but isn’t a step aerobic class; prefer kickboxing. Am considering: Well, Bally’s, I guess, if I can’t find anything better, though I know they’ll constantly try and sell me crap; a park district class, although there’s nothing close to home. Am ruling out: my recent former gym for aforementioned reasons; any Curves location because I already figured out it’s a boring and stupid place with lousy hours; my old old gym, because my lengthy research has proven that the place is totally ghetto. Vaguely considering: That yoga/pilates shit, but don’t try to sell me on it. I like to kick.
Write me if you know of anything good. Thanks.
