I think an hour on the stairmaster would be torture for anyone. We do a different workout everyday. It varies from cardio to lifting to yoga and pilates.

Ahh ok, I was kidding about the stairmaster, but I do find the stairmaster to be torture, even a few minutes.

I used to go to a gym, but like Harry said its boring. The gym I went to there were a lot of women in spandex and mack-up trolling for stock brokers, at least I think thats what they were doing, they sure weren't working out

There is a gym here on main street Berlin, at the KuDamm, at I am not sure but about 4th or 5th floor. All the staff in the office building on the other side are known to bet on the girls, who will use the elevator and which workout they will do. Those with the most make-up and glitzi stuff use the elevator to go upstairs to the gym just to hit the stairmaster When they are done they use the elevator again to go downstairs. I've known quite a few fitness trainers who dreaded the place.

Pretty much every gym I have been in reminded me of a disco, you know a bunch of men with a paunch, sweating a liter a minute and dreading every second and a bunch of girls trying to get a free drink, with nothing more than a wiggle of their finely toned bottoms

Is that really any different to those people who drive to a gym, spend an hour on a treadmill, and then drive home again? I wonder if the idea of simply taking a walk has ever occured to them?

Saturday, my friend the mason that does the maintenance of my house came to fix some broken tiles on the roof.

The thing was that I was not meeting him since some months and he was ecstatic about my looks after the diet and giving up the smoking and drinking, and all this swimming.

That's why I bought a StairMonster. I did all that and mostly used the one machine. Now, I wake up and just stumble onto the StairMonster. When I'm finished, I hop right in my own shower. I don't need workout clothes because well...I'm working out at home and since I have to do the laundry, why bother? I don't need sneakers, just a soft sole under foot, which is usually in the form of flip flops or crocs (no need for socks). You can't wear those in a gym!

Perhaps its where I live, but many of the gyms around me are gender-restricted. There are a number of women's only gyms for women who want to work out without men ogling them. So I assure you guys there are women out there who DO go to gyms to work out. Though your hyperbolic over-genralization was funny. And in fairness, when I've been dragged to one of those women's only places, I've refrained from ogling the women to the best of my ability

Seriously though, you are 100% correct in saying I was over generalizing, and I admit that I was, but here in Asia most of the girls, (more than 50%) have little use of the gym for anything other than a social gathering. I had a couple of the gym dolls working for me and neither one of them could tell you what a stairmaster was let alone use it, even thought they went to the gym, by their admission, at least 4 times a week. Gyms here tend to offer better rates to the young pretty girls than to the old farts with a paunch, not a generalization, I have had the experience. They are not shy about it here and there is now law saying they can't do it, so they do.

I'm not to sure the young guys going to the gym mind so much

LOL! So close to what was I was going to write! I have lots of friends who rave about their spinning and want me to join them. Are you kidding??? I'm on my bicycle every frickin' day to and from work. Sun or rain or snow or ice. Saves me money twice: No gas, no spinning class membership fee! And then I can plant my behind firmly in the couch and spend some quality time with my laptop and eReader!

(Oh yeah, that "little" rascal in my avatar (a gigantic Siberian Husky) insists on adding to my daily exercise regime as well.)

I wish I was able to do this. I'm only about 10 miles from my office, but it would necessitate me finding somewhere to shower when I go there. Corporate law firms have little consideration for health if you show up to work smelling like you just biked ten miles. We're about to be absorbed into one of the firms larger buildings and I'm hoping that we'll have shower facilities there.

PS Your puppy is gorgeous.
