Sample text:

I’m an old school fitness enthusiast who enjoys a no-frills gym for all my workouts. Sure, occasionally I’ll do my workouts at home or on-the-go, but about 90% of my workout regimen happens at the gym. No, I am not into CrossFit boxes, group fitness-specific clubs or state of the art gyms with a climbing wall, wrestling bear and smoothie bar. Not that I think poorly of those types of fitness establishments, it’s just that they don’t necessarily have what I want.


I just want a good workout space that is clean, safe and has friendly gym-goers that I can briefly engage with in my time. My primary reason for a workout is for my health. There was a time that I wanted to impress people with my strength, show off my bulging biceps or prowl around like I was king of the jungle. But, with years of experience and a little humility, I realized that the main reason I should go was to keep old injuries from haunting me, keep my heart in good health and manage my high energy levels. Everything else is secondary to those three goals.


When you come between me and my workout or make it less effective that is when I have an issue. I don’t mind if you interrupt me to ask a question or greet me. I’m okay with quick socializing; after all, I’m not a complete stick-in-the-mud. Also, I’m not bothered if you have a question about whether or not I’m using the equipment. That only requires a quick response and is, quite frankly, a very nice courtesy.
