ONE OF THOSE DAYS!!!
With my alarm set for 5.15am and my bodyclock primed I woke up at 5.14.
My first stop of the day was at Crumps, the famous butchers in Wootton Bassett to collect the huge meat feast that will be consumed over the next few weeks. Unfortunatly, they were not open until 7am. Damm my wife she told me 6am, another excuse to get me out of bed.
Well it is Christmas and so in the festive spirit and not to waist any time I drove to the other side of swindon to my gym to train. Feeling smug as I was the first to arrive, I had barely finished my warm up when I was escorted out of the gym. "Christmas open hours" I was told and the gym wasn't open until 7am. Feeling like I was in my twenty's again as the last time this happened I was escorted out of Cairos nightclub for not wearing a collar on my fitted Georgio Armani shirt. I then waited 25 minutes in reception. Maybe it was just me but then other members started to arrive. We were held like jockey's at the Cheltenham gold cup, waiting behind the turnstiles.
With them chomping at the bit, the clock struck 7 and the traps opened. Members raced towards the changing rooms. Without risking being trampled on I moved effortlessly behind the front runner and overtook him up the flight of stairs leading up to the gym. My session was very brief - 3x3 push press/dumbell curls plus machine crunch. Made my way out of the heaving gym; or not and back across Swindon.
I then returned to Crumps, the butchers to collect the massive lump of Protein that felt heavier than the 60k Push press prior. Finally, back home for breakfast followed by a shower I arrived at work with a minute to spare.
A note to my gym - you have amazing facilities and some great PT staff, however your customer service together with sales marketing team need a talking too. For £165 a month membership it wouldn't be too much to ask for of a quick email to your members showing your "Christmas opening hours" along with, "I still haven't received my letter regarding all the changes and its getting embarrasing being let in each morning as I still haven't received my new membership card". I'm not normally one to moan but seriously - "COME ON"!
