January Joiners

It’s January at the health club. The regulars put on strained, polite smiles as new faces arrive in expensive obviously-a-Christmas-present attire, fumble with confusing cardio machine screens, or arrive late to over-crowded classes.

We love you guys. We’re cheering for you. Hope you stick with it. It will change your life.

However … it’s pretty crowded …

Most years we just wait patiently for the new year’s resolve to weaken. Time does indeed take care of many things. Our Pilates teacher seems to be experimenting with a technique more commonly found on college campuses: the “weed ’em out” approach.  Since January she’s taken it up a couple of notches. Even the old die-hard’s were huffing and puffing, and working up a sweat this morning. Today’s class will surely have killed off another batch.

By early March, at the latest, we should be back to normal. We’ll see you again next year.
