Our Very Own Gym
The other day, I went down to the 1st floor, which is actually a club floor. One door opens to Podium, another door opens to office and party room and another opens to Gym and swimming pool.
I entered the door leading to Gym. A loud music was playing and one member was on the treadmill. He was quite engrossed in his music and exercise that he didn’t notice us.
But I must say, it’s a beautiful room with state-of-art equipments. Although I have never done gymming in my life, this is first time that I wish I could.
There is TV in one wall of the room, I am sure when the gyms becomes totally functional, this will be a good venue to meet the society members. The floor is fully covered with rubber padding to prevent the beautiful marble beneath. (You never know, when those heavy weights fall and break the floor).. Every detail has been attended to. The managements has really taken pains to get the best and I have seen them help lift those equipments and find time to be there and arrange it. Appreciate the time they have invested from their busy life.
There is rest room and two changing rooms (male and female)
All walls are covered with mirrors from top to bottom, except one wall, that has long french windows overlooking the street. A small flower bed outside those windows has spot lights and bougainvilleas plants, which, when grown, will escape through long metal rods, on to the walls outside the building.
I am just waiting for those beautiful, thorny ornamental flowers bloom in the rainy season. I am expecting to walk on the carpet of these colourful flowers, that will fall on those cobbled tiles....
While I was there, one person entered the gym. I didn’t know him, so I started to talk. He was a personal trainer, appointed by one of the tenant of the building. I am happy that members are appointing their own personal trainer, at least the cost of training members will not be added on our monthly bill, I hope.
Anyways the management has laid down the rules for members to follow. Good rules for smooth operation of our gym.
