When we first walked in, every single stairmaster was taken and almost all of the cardio machines were taken. To make matters worse, I don't wear my glasses in the gym because my body heat fogs up my glasses. So, I'm a literal blind bat in there and I can barely see faces and have to squint to see things far away.
I'm hoping that the massive crowds will diminish with time and the "fad" of the new gym subsides. In the meantime, I'll have to suck it up and get up at the butt crack of dawn to get my gym time in. Cause going in at dinner time was just too much. Or, if I can, I'll just go at 8. When we were leaving at around 8:15, the parking lot was empty and the crowd thinned out.
