Its been a while since my last drip which was about Facebook, well this time its about the above title. Anyway i shall begin. My parents received through the post a free membership for Virgin Active, it only lasted a couple of days, but my parents were far too busy to go so as a gesture of good will they gave me this golden ticket. ''Hooray'' i thought, i can ditch the meathead gym for a couple of days, and have a couple of days of luxury. So i started on the Monday (14/12/09), and as soon as i walked in there i was amazed with all the high-tech c.v equipment and the space age weights machine (this even put Lympstone to shame) so after 30 minutes has passed of doing weights, posing for the women etc i decided to have ago of the treadmill, so after 10 minutes of a brisk jog, a good looking chick came on the one next to me, so there i was checking her out in the corner of my eye when all of a sudden she pulled out a book and started reading and walking at the same time. How can this be, you dont go the gym to read?, then to top it all of the other treadmill on my right side got occupied by some bloke who was reading the times. Am i missing something here ? do we no longer get sweaty, or work hard in the gym or is that the ''new age'' man thing ?. So after doing the work out i returned back to the changing rooms , and what i saw next would make any one piss them selves laughing. I saw two blokes using hair strightners ???????, and you could tell that people round them was staring and trying to contain them selves. And it gets worst, they started applying make-up ( is there a such a thing on the high street?) hair-gel the whole lot. This may seem like a pointless drip to some, but i was brought up with the ethos you go the gym to work hard, nothing more. And i think the young men of today could be going soft, and spending to much money on beauty products when they should be spending it on booze. Whats your thoughts on this ?
