Double Duty

Personal fitness gets a lot of attention in America.

Walkers, runners, and bikers use trails in parks and along abandoned rail lines. Many people join a gym. A smaller number use it regular. Another group of people take classes for specific exercises, swimming, or dancing.

Walking is my exercise of choice. I’ve discovered by trial and error that it’s one I’ve been able to maintain for more than a week or two. So six days a week I leave my  home and walk a route of about a mile and a half. This route takes me past a gym. At the hour I pass, several of the treadmills are in use, sometimes a Stairmaster, and other patrons are too deep into the building to see in a casual glance.

At least one patron combines gym time with other exercise. Confirmation? The bike stored between the double doors early one Sunday morning.
