After my shift this morning, I went in search of breakfast on the Sprint campus. Yesterday morning, I bought a made to order omelette with some delicious mushrooms and tomato bits. Today being Saturday, however, the gates were down over the cafeteria entrance. So, I proceeded across the amphitheater to Java City, where I had bought a pretty good turkey and bacon wrap previously. . . to no avail. It was also gated. So, I walked to the area known as Town Center, which is more or less an impeccably landscaped open air mini mall. I found that only the gym was open. I figured a place where 14,000 people work would have a nice gym, but I had no idea what awaited. So, I scanned in and asked the front desk cutie for a tour. She showed me the first floor cardio area, strength machines, the free weight area, and the treadwall which is like one of those rock climbing walls, but it loops continuously. I saw a gym with three basketball courts and a bulletin board with the basketball and volleyball schedules. The biggest aerobics room I've ever seen. A separate room for cycling classes. Table tennis. Putting greens. On the third floor, a 1/8 mile track around a very well equipped aerobics theater with screens all around replete with signs showing which FM frequency to tune to for the audio. I saw the door to the yoga room and a brochure rack with a newsletter full of nutrition tips and brochures for upcoming local foot and cycle races. We went back to the first floor and she gestured toward the locker rooms, so I checked that out, too. Deee Luxe! Wooden lockers. Rows of shower stalls. A steam room and a dry sauna. So, what's the damage if I join? $15 a week. I might pay that just to be able to shower, shave, and change clothes before my shift. Can I use chalk? No. Can I drop the weights? No. Is a trainer available? Yes, to write a workout program for you based on your goals. Will someone on staff spot for me? Yes, if they are capable. If not, they can ask another member to help. . . this coming from a little petite thing that probably weighed 120 or less. Okay, so this gym is a show piece. There were a few serious people in the free weight area. It's not like a token gym which you'd find in a hotel chain where they'd crowd a few essential pieces of equipment intoa small room with mirrors. This is a well equipped mega gym built with the best intentions. Seventy one thousand square feet! Landscaped with fountains and pampas grass.
