Fitness Challenge: Day 33
The shiny, new Chintatown YMCA shares a building with a Whole Foods. This is a serious upgrade from how the Bowery used to look.
The fitness floor overlooks the pool, so parents whose children are taking swim lessons can spy on their kids while they exercise.
I face a serious but funny challenge - forgot my shorts, so I have to exercise in skinny jeans. Running on the treadmill if fine, if warm, but lunges and squats are out of the question.
There is a subset of NYC fitness buff that exercises in short shorts and construction boots. I think I might look like I share the obsession with how I look when I work out; my concern is how I look the rest of the time.
OK, the skinny jeans look good. But I feel weird. And sweaty.
