Not there yet but getting ready to head to the gym to run nowhere on a treadmill.
#pollensucks
 
Hey! I crossfit! I drive to climb a rope!
 
LOLLL
Rode my bike to and from... and went for a lunchtime run. Yay for office showers.
 
Low-tech treadmill: Alternate running and walking in place from your own living room, preferably while watching old TV shows on Netflix. (Anyone else love The A-Team, Charlie's Angels or Red Dwarf?) No need to travel to the gym, and if you have young kids at home as I do, no childcare fees required for this activity!

Just think, if you removed the weights from all the machines in the gym and instead changed a resistance value and use that to generate electricity, then the gym could start paying YOU to go there.
 
This captures a big part of (a) what I love about being a runner, and (b) what I love about living out in the countryside. I can step out the front door, and my "gym" is right there.
 
Or in my case stuck in traffic waiting to use the elliptical!
 
u don't need to live in the country for that. i can easily hop on my bike and do about 35 miles of intensive cardio right out my door and i certainly do not live in the country.

this is really a caricature isn't it? gyms are not the waste of time that some outdoors exercise snobs make them out to be. i cycle or run long distance just about everyday of the week yet i still have a use for the gym for core and strength workouts.
 
I'm literally on my way to the gym. Luckily my gym is a 5 minute walk from my place.
 
Wisdom ten parts, nine of which silence and tenth few words

or, those who drive around the parking lot looking for the closest parking spot to the door, only to walk on the treadmill as their workout...
 
thats hilarious!!!
 
Doesn't everybody use a mobile bicycle to get to the gym and ride a stationary bicycle?
 
Morons. If they had ridden a real bike.
 
Great Post. I have found a way to work a 5 mile bike ride into my daily commute, and it is one of the best things I have done in years.
 
a paper bicycle ? huh? what the ?
Mike DS
 
Going nowhere fast....
 
And when they get there, they'll probably ride an escalator to the door.
 
I hope they don't have to walk far to the gym from where they park their car.
 
I have no good comments on gym culture except they're a great place to waste my money and a great place to watch trainers stink eye me when I steal their workouts and listen in about their nutrition suggestions. :)
 
+Robert Bailey That is only if you abide by the rules of the road, and don't weave in and out of cars or go between the stationary vehicles...
 
hahahahaha!! wait... they should just run there
 
I don't get stuck in traffic, but I do resemble the rest of that remark on occasion
 
and this is being shared .. niiiice
 
Good thing I don't get stuck in traffic. I weave in and out of traffic on my Bicycle. to go to the beach to go swim that's my gym hey! it's free
 
Ha ha - not me - I'm stuck in traffic down by the river trying to get to the gym to use my rowing machine. =/
 
+Amanda Blain We should also have the sam emoment for those who have a leash in their hand , walking an "invisible dog". I've seen that a few times and it always baffles me!
 
:D read it, thought about it, then laughed out loud about it!
 
so funny h aaaaaaa i ride a bike to the gym to have a bloody rest lol
 
:D Good one! I don't ride bicycles, transporting or stationary. Still, :D
 
I wonder about the folks who ride the elevator to the penthouse gym to climb on a stairs machine... Just walk up, shower and go home.
 
That's why I have a treadmill and a Concept2 at home. :-)
 
There are other types of equipment at a gym.
 
Q: What do gyms, dating sites, and Facebook have in common?
 
what would be the point in a moments silence? coz they are not gonna hear it.
 
Haha! Too true. ashamed to say i might often be one of them.
 
Bwahhh hahha. I love this. So true. #firstworldproblems
 
Many of us drive because we already have to move the car to in order to take our bike down in the garage rafters.
 
LOL. Too funny & do true. 
 
The irony I see is many people going to the gym trying to get the closest parking spot they can. They're too lazy to walk an extra few feet to the gym but not too lazy to work out.
 
LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLLLLLLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111
 
You would not be implying that they should ride bicycles to the gym? Only to avoid the traffic of course.
 
When I lived in Chicago I saw a guy in jogging suit jogging while smoking a cigar. I figured it would probably be healthier if he watched TV instead.
 
right, it´s so much better to stay at home hypnotized by social media,

Amazing how ironic we can be in our actions and not even know it.
 
It's the only way to work off that "light brownie" you had earlier!
 
hahahahahah! thats preeety funnyy
Translate
 
That. Is. Perfect. If you're able, get out and run people! Push up, pulls ups and core work...you don't need much else.
 
How about a moment of silent for those that after being stuck in traffic go home to sit in front of their TV sets for hours.

I'd take stationary bicycles any time of the day, and get healthier, than to sit in front of a TV or be inactive.
 
Baha this made me wanna pull a gun out on the pope!
 
Hahah these are the same people that mock me as I put put around on my little scooter :)
 
I understand why people would use the gym if they have no room at home for equipment or need the extra incentive of having paid a whole lot of money and not wanting to waste it.
 
LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
That's good! Time to consider cycle friendly cities like Copenhagen and Amsterdam.
 
it's better live in cozy village with all its limited facilities
 
hahahahahahahahhahahahahhahahahhahahahahahahahahahhahahahaha!!!LOL!
Translate
 
Lol! That's a good one!
 
Better than not working out at all ...right?
 
I LOVE THIS post it is very cleaver and true my brother does this
 
oh I feel sorry for them.......... ah, what the heck? I'm to busy to have a moment of silence.
 
i like it .. would make big difference
 
Thats why when I go to the Gym, I go really early in the morning or late at night. avoid the traffic. Best part about when I'm done and coming back home home in the morning, I have no traffic on my side of the road, but the other side is bumper to bumper.
 
they shoulda changed the routine and made to ride bicycles there and then cars in the gym :-P lol
 
people are the odds U cant estimate
Ping He
 
only if there are proper/safe road/lane for ppl to commute
 
I was serious starting this but once I got to the end I just cracked up!!!
 
ya right.
it is really important to us.
 
Traffic, bicycles, stationary....yep. Still can't get anywhere!
 
You keep moving towards the future even if you're standing/sitting/pedaling still.
Translate
 
too funny. I don't get how people don't just work out at home
 
Have to love this, I know so many who do this!! 
 
And walk many kilometres on a stationary walker,lift big iron balls, workout with many many iron devices and sweat it out religiously. When it comes to digging a hole or mending shrubs, or mowing the lawn or other feats requiring physical strain, you employ hired labour and either watch them work, or are too busy with your internet, or work, or TV.Great ways to be in perfect shape and health
 
They closed the 405 freeway last night, and it sucked. At least when you're on a stationary bicycle nobody tries to cut you off.
Translate
 
Hahahahaaaaa...yes, maybe they should take the bike to work instead....good one
 
Stationary bicycle but can run marathon on this animated cargo.
 
SILENCE!! thats meant the people around you are SLEEPING!!!! he he he
 
If speech is silver silence of gold .....
rf guo
 
I love it
 
We are walking 10 kilometer in the morning and going to duty on bike for two kilometer
 
I NEVER WANT TO HEAR THE WORD BIKE AGAIN
 
Love it! I do both though, so I don't feel to bad!
 
Let's have a moment for of silence for all those who are stuck on their chair and can't get their massive asses out of it and who are playing Farmville on Facebook planting stuff as a self-purpose.
Translate
 
ahahahhahhah lolz
 
got somebody who did speak sense!!
Bri Boo
 
sigh* poor mom..
 
Just get out of the car and jog or bring your bike for a good work out next time!
 
I go for a 1 mile + walk with my dog almost every day :-)
 
do u want to blog me over her!
 
esta muy bueno esa imagen
 
I shared this a month ago and no one commented or shared it, guess if I had boobs or was famous that would help. oh well still a good post and funny thought
 
Very funny; ppl don't go to gym just ride a bicycle.
 
I drive sports bike, traffic can't catch me...Because in our country traffic is not on hard way rules,,,Me from Bangladesh...
 
so beauti,,..................................
 
No need to harry as they are going to do a job where they will be stationary on bicycles wasting their energy for nothing just to keep their body fit. In staid of that they can do use their energy for the useful of the community by cleaning the city or by growing or by cleaning their gardens or any thing else useful. I am not against the GYM but against the wasting of time and energy and at the same time the extra food they usually eat. \\ Dr. Rabie \\ UAE\\.
 
and while waiting: one cup of coffee, a cigarette or maybe a beer!

so you are one of them or you are on the ogher side of the road

Yes, to avoid accidents.
 
I agree for a minute of silence but it's for me.
