Why?

I've heard decent things about Planet Fitness, sounds like it would fit you... it's cheap I believe.

b/c it's just scary, that's why!!

I've been a little slack lately..and of course now it's cold..so running before work is waaay harder to get up ...I also quit smoking (again) 2 weeks ago..so I feel like a big bloated cow

I am running a 5k this Saturday downtown..so I'm using that as my "Get your ass motivated and back into the gym this winter and don't turn into Fatty McButterpants again!!!"

I just got slack..a little more wine here and there..We got Izzy..so the I had to go home and let her out which meant I didn't make it to the Y anymore after work..IT'S MY DOGS FAULT!!!

I will be running after work today :) I promise!

Good on you for quitting.. stay away from those damn things.

What's scary about it? That you're not doing it right?

Yeah, um... pretty sure they're not laughing at you... ogling maybe.

Unless someone is doing something really stupid (which I do see a good bit) I personally pay them no attention in the gym.

Good rule is go light, focus on form, don't swing or sway to move the weights, and you're good to go.

I've beat this into my wife and kids when they go with me. You look a hell of a lot dumber trying to move weights you shouldn't, than just going really light and working properly.

This is really a problem with young guys... I see that poo ALL the time... high school and college aged guys (particularly when there's a group) all on the bench, trying to out press each other instead of actually doing any work.
