Double, nay, single entendre.

I went to the gym yesterday, attempting to re-immerse myself into some sort of fitness programme. I thought I would revisit BodyPump, a class I enjoyed many years ago, and I hoped an easy, non-impact way into some activity. For those not indoctrinated with the phenomenon of BodyPump, it is a class where one lifts weights for about an hour. Low impact, high repetition. You and a barbell with about 30 other people - 95% of those are women. When the instructor asked us all to get ready for the first workout track by exclaiming, "Bar Up!", I couldn't help but raise an eyebrow. Thankfully the two gentleman in the room seemed au fait with her terminology, and I was able to keep my sniggering to myself.

Hell, I haven't been to the gym in years. My partner goes three times a week, which sickens me.

Well done for trying!
