Stirring the pot
Well, there is some funny stuff going on at the gym now that I'm working out with my friend. A couple of days ago when we had our first workout, apparently the fitness manager, the sales manager & every single trainer working there had a million questions to ask Bill. Mainly, "Is your wife training here now?" I'm not contracted through the gym & working out with my friend is Kosher, because there is no exchange of money & I'm working out with her at the same time. So, I'm not breaking any "rules". But the training staff is scared stiff that I'm going to start taking their business.
This afternoon my friend & I had our second workout. As we were sitting on the mats, stretching out & talking, one of the trainers who happens to be friends with Bill came up to us. "Are you training?", he asked. "We're working out together & helping each other out", I replied. "Oh, OK. Bill talked to you about the other day, right?", he questioned. "Yeah. And you know...I am a trainer. I'm going to workout like a trainer. Just because I'm not contracted through the gym, it doesn't mean I'm going to 'forget' how to workout". He was satisfied with that, smiled & walked away. Then I had to be a smart ass. "You know though. If I was training, I would be scared if I were you". I forgot that I get cocky like that in the gym & it just came out. As a woman in the gym though, you have to hold your own. Otherwise, it's not pretty.
So, my friend & I workout & laugh about what's going on. We see the fitness manager watching us like hawks & snicker. My friend tells me that another trainer is giving us "looks". We snicker some more. Between laughing & actually doing our ab exercises, we should have six pack abs in no time.
I think it's just funny that they're so worried. Am I really that much of a threat? I guess it's pretty flattering, seeing as though we've only worked out once & they're all nervous about it. I've seen the way the other trainers work their clients out & I've read each of their profiles on the wall that lists their qualifications. I'll refrain from making another arrogant comment.
