I Hate the Gym by Jessica Kaminsky
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Most of us would rather give up bread than step on a treadmill, but there are basics to consider - good health, fitting into a favourite pair of jeans, attracting a mate, feeling fit. Whatever the incentive that draws people to the most unappealing place on Earth, getting to the gym is less than half the battle. Once there, navigating the sea of distasteful sights, sounds, and smells can be a horrifying experience. The gym is a minefield of people you'd rather not stand next to on the subway let alone share a sweaty machine with. In I HATE THE GYM, seasoned sitcom writer Jessica Kaminsky shares her tips on getting through a trip to the fortress of evil relatively unscathed. Tips include: * The half-hour rule (doesn't matter what you do, if you stay for thirty minutes, it counts as a workout) * Reward systems (thirty minutes equals carte blanche to eat and drink whatever you want) * Identifying the players (from the prison warden to the bored housewife) * Surviving the classes (beware the territorial spinners and aggressive yogis) and more!
