(HALLOWEEN THEMED !!!)
I’m happy to announce the amazing line-up for the next COUPLET READING SERIES on October 26th (time TBA) which happens to be our 1-YEAR ANNIVERSARY.
(FB Invitation to Follow…)
It’s an all- male line-up this time around and it’s going to kind of be like Macho-Man by the Village People, which I think my bunk did a MTV skit to back in 1993 in Sleepaway Camp, but NOT. (Actually, not at all, but wouldn’t that be fun?)

1. Wear workout attire that is appropriate.
a) Don’t wear jeans.
I believe “denim” was designed for cowboys, or coal miners, not so for you to “ride” your stationary bike in, or “run” on your precor in.
b) Don’t wear a full face of makeup.
I know you have seen these women before. They boggle the mind and blind the eyes. Your pores need to breathe and honestly, no one looks “pretty” when they’re working out. And besides, the advertising world is making a killing on those makeup remover wipes you can through in your bag. Unless you’re Pamela Anderson or well, Cher (who I’m sure have private gyms in their homes), wash your face before you work out.
c) Wear a good, supportive bra.
The keyword is: supportive. I know Lululemon is awesome, trendy and cool, but trust me I saw the best bosoms of my generations destroyed from bad support. No, seriously, I eye their clothes, all the time, but do you want to look like you came off a fashion-factory-assembly line? Come on ladies, their bra-tops seriously don’t have any support. (just sayin)
2. Bring earphones to:
a) Use with your iPod, iPhone, or other handheld personal device to:
i) Listen to a playlist you created to pump you up and get you past those last ten minutes. Music is SO motivating. I suggest bands from the 80s and 90s like: Salt n Pepa, George Michael, Taylor Dayne, C+C Music Factory, Duran Duran, U2 and Tears for Fears.
ii) Listen to your favorite podcast
iii) Watch a TV show or movie you’ve recently downloaded
b) plug into the gym TV circuit on your Precor or elliptical and watch your favorite show
NOTE: Do NOT use your Iphone or personal device to:
a) Make phone calls to friends or loved ones where you act like Janis from Friends, or get enraged at a colleague for something work-related when you’re the one who is NOT in the office.
3. Be mindful of the space you inhabit.
Don’t talk to a friend working out next to you. It’s distracting to others (not to mention rude) and the whole floor doesn’t need to hear about your kid’s after-school schedule, or what your opinion is on the TomKat divorce.
If you are taking a spin class, wipe your bike off when you’re done; if you are on the a Precor or treadmill, say “thank you” when someone wipes down their equipment when they see you are waiting for a machine, and remember, though you might pay the same dues as everyone else for membership, spare us the attitude that your &#$% don’t stink (it does), and remember that it is probably not a good idea to sing along loudly to the latest Maroon 5 song playing on your playlist. This is not The Voice, and you are not going to get “discovered” at the gym.
