I understand we are here for a common goal. Not to die. So I applaud all dues paying members who walk through the door on a consistent basis to workout. Congratulations! You could be at home watching Friends or I Love New York re-runs with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s…but no…you got up and you came here.
While I respect what you are trying to do…I have but one request. COVER YO ASS PLEASE!!!
Perhaps you are confused. I understand that we pay a premium amount to use the facilities at this well equipped gym. Trust me…I feel your pain. But I believe you are mistaken. This is not your home…so please act accordingly. Chatting with people naked, walking around naked, blow-drying your hair naked, bending over naked, surfing the net while sitting on a bench naked, filing your nails naked, completing a Sudoku naked…you see where I am going with this right?
I know where you are going to take this…and yes…I will admit that I am not in shape like you may be. But please work with me…even if I had washboard abs I would not walk around naked in the locker room talking to my neighbors/workout partner/coworkers. I’m sorry…I just wouldn’t. Regardless of how I blow dry my hair at home…I would at least put a t shirt or towel on when I dry my hair in a communal space. If you get hot…stop and drink water…its not that difficult.
I have almost accepted that some of you think its ok to shower barefoot. Its fine! Your athlete’s foot issues…not mine. But if you please…put something between yourself and the benches that we all share.
The towels are complimentary, feel free to take more than one.
P.S. – I spoke to my male friends…they don’t appreciate the nakedness in their locker rooms as well. Please feel free to pass this letter to the male workout enthusiast in your life. Additionally…please let them know that when there are multiple urinals free…don’t use the one directly next to a person and start a conversation. You all can catch up on your sports talk at another time. Thanks
