While I thought I was going to leave my YMCA membership behind, I’ve decided that for now, I will stay. The clientel at the Independence YMCA is unmatched.
What does a cowboy hat have to do with the YMCA?
It is only the latest oddity in the weight room I workout in at the Y. Yesterday, I set my weights down and saw an elderly gentleman working out on a Cybex machine. He was wearing khaki slacks, a floral print short sleeve shirt, velcro shoes and yes, a cowboy hat.
Below is a list of people I’ve actually seen in the weightroom, unless noted.
– Woman walking into the Y wearing workout clothes and black high heels.
– Elderly woman with jet black hear, sweatsuit and black shiny pumps doing leg curls.
– Two painters, in full painting shirts and jeans, wreaking of latex, doing dumb bell bench presses.
– Large weight lifter always smells like a bottle of Hugo Boss exploded on him.
Anyone else interested in joining, don’t worry about the facilities, the classes or the cost. Come for the people…
