Come in and complain about Stuff - Im complaining about my gym

Club med Gym is the largest gym chain in paris. Generally their facilities are good and the price is basically reasonable. its about 780 euros a year with towel benefits. Thing is my old location was much better but now that my firm moved to the Champs Elysées I have to say the club med gym SUCKS.

1. The equipment seems to be always broken.
2. When the treadmills are working (these are running machines) they also suck. they squeek, and they slide so its almost seems dangerous. i mean they slide when you land and you actually feel the treadmill slip. its not a secure feeling.
3. There are not enough treadmills so you often have to wait.
4. There is absolutely no air conditioning and only a few measly fans. It is stifling hot in there so i dont know what to do this summer - it will be like a sauna. NO EXAGGERATION IT IS STIFLING HOT AND NO AIR
5. The aerobics instructors are rude - yesteday we were standing on one foot, and so as not to fall down i was holding onto the wall. And this monster woman was like what are you doing, and i said "trying not to fall down", and she basically grumbled in french "if you want to do that you can leave my class". I pay 780 euros to get insulted. do aerobics instructors thinK they are college professors?
6. if you come into an aerobics class late the teachers are pissed off....again we pay for this shit.
7. The rest of the help is growchy at best. they probably get constant complaints about all of the above and they have no patience for it.
8. like at every club med gym it is impossible to find a hanger for your clothes....and to find a hanger with that part across the middle so you can hang your nice pants....forget about it.

Well that felt good. thats about it. other club med locations are fine and i would recommend them. also the workers are nicer at least one other location. But my new gym SUCKS WROTTEN JOCK STRAP.

Come on in and complain about your gym or anything else you want to complain about. or if you have a good gym, maybe you can recommend it to me. My firm is actually going to install equipment here at the office, so i might just save my money, and use it to buy better seats at RG next year.

kart - thanks for your ear. actually there is one about 25 minutes walk from my home, maybe more. but working out during lunch break from work is perfect for me. its a freaking sauna in there, the instructors are obnoxious at best, the machines dont work and its smelly and crowded. interestingly the locker rooms have air conditioning but not the workout areas. AT least they show tennis all the time in the lounge. Worst part is the unfriendly people to work there, who are most likely unfriendly because of the overcrowded and general poor conditions of the gym.

The only thing I can complain about is myself. I am so f****** lazy. I never get anything done. I keep a list of important things I have to do (and these are important things like bank accounts, money, bills, debts etc) and I never do any of them. Some of these things have been on my list for over a year. I am losing money. Now with two football matches a day, I have even less time, and next week it's Wimbledon. I waste so many hours on the internet, it's insane. When am I going to get a grip, cut the crap out of my life and start behaving like a productive and responsible citizen??? I can't keep on being such a layabout my whole life.

Chainsmoke all day long like me and drink about 5 pots of coffee by noon. You will be so thin and have so much energy, you will not need to go to the gym.

hmm that is tough. sounds like me before i got married, no money, in debt, no job etc etc. Please see the thread about marriage for more of my views on the subject. No but seriously through the school of hardnocks we eventually get it together and just start doing everyone of those things that need to be done and we find help to do the others we cant.

The only thing I have to complain about is not being about to see my soulmate
It's been over 2 weeks now since I even got to see her, althou I've talked to her by phone like twice since then. Our famlies worked together to separate us, and now I have no idea how to get the funding, or time off to go and see her. I think it's driving me insane as well as I dream about always wanting to see her but never being able to get there so I never get a peaceful sleep. I have a goal within the next 2 weeks to go see her, that is if I'm not forgotten by then. Althou she did call and leave me a message on Tuesday. Still for them to tell us what we should do when we are grown adults is wrong.

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!
