It kind of astounds me when I see people using machines that suck energy out of the wall to work out. Why would you need electricity to get exercise? Why use a stairmaster when there are stairs all over the place? Why run on a treadmill when you can dance?

After work I often run into these drummers on the subway platform:

I know this isn’t the best picture, but can you see their arms? The guy’s got biceps bigger around than my thigh, and the chick’s arms are like pythons. Big, swamp-dwelling, small-child-swallowing pythons. You can’t get this kind of muscle on a treadmill, people. Plus, they’re making music (and money).

There are lots of good reasons for getting a gym membership – climate-control, profressional assistance, high-tech machinery, etc – and I don’t intend to make light of them. But it just seems to me that electric gym equipment is a big waste of energy.
