In the day we had big gymnasiums. Our gyms were different to today's as membership was not voluntary. They were however for our own good. We were taught to be good, repent our sins and undertake the forerunner of the RNFT. The exercise was called double time or orbiting and we ran about thirty laps at a time. If this did not suit your particular fitness regime, you could do synchronized frog hopping, today they call it abuse of human rights, funny how names change over the years. We were taught to run up and down heights and they were kind to us they never ever insisted we wear those horrible thing that you poor bastards are tortured with, called safety harnesses I think. Running with weights over your head usually 8 and three quarter pounds was brilliant for developing your biceps, and apparently your outlook. Excessive exercise develops also your character, it did mine it gave me killer instincts, I wanted to kill the chief of staff in the gymnasium. Diet was most important, meat makes you very disobedient so they never gave us any. Well once a week so we recognised it in case any bastard tried to slip it you to rock the boat. Smoking was discouraged and most of us cut right down to three a day and to save us buying matches they provided us with a shovel to get a light. We were allowed to run in corridors though and only had to slow down on stairs so we didn't hurt ourselves. We changed our clothes regularly every morning and afternoon so we were nice to smell in case we ever met a woman in the gym (I never did). They gave us futuristic hair cuts like number 1's before they were invented. We had religious books to read and they even taught us to pick ropes to pieces so we never would have to worry about filling our dustbins with all the old rope people accumulate through out life. It was such a great place I couldn't wait to go back, and thanks to certain events in my life, I didn't have too.
