I really like my anonymity at the gym. I go in, sweat, don’t worry about who sees me, then go again. But lately, I’ve been taking the same spin class week after week and this week…. my instructor knew my name.

It was bound to happen. Most people would love the idea of being welcomed by name to the class, but I went in to an instant panic. Now I have to be careful to show up at classes (oh the horror at having to come up with an excuse for why I didn’t make Wednesdays class that isn’t because I ate a pack of Tim Tams and did online shopping instead!) and when he singles me out to “push harder”, I actually have to look like I’m doing it. Should I leave some in reserve (you know, just in case?)

Of course I’ll keep going, it’s the greatest spin class I’ve ever found, but my anonymous sweat is gone. I may even have to take a brush now… because he is quite cute come to think of it….

  • great to read it


  • i ike these stories


  • this story is good


  • Must admit I have stopped going to mine the last few weeks because more people started talking to me, I must get over it and go back!!


  • Count yourself lucky. I tried to join a gym, and was told I could only exercise at certain times to avoid offending other patrons, and would have to pay extra in case I damaged equipment.

    • No way! Please tell me that’s not true.


  • That is funny, I also like the anonymity of the gym


  • i should try a spin class
