In cooler weather I try to go to the botanical gardens and walk the trails on my lunch break but with the temps getting into the mid 90’s and blasting towards triple digits, I’ve been going to the gym more often on my lunch break. I always manage to see someone or something interesting at the gym each visit and yesterday it was a jawa.
You know those pesky little scavengers from Starwars that young vader hated so much. The guy must have been about 4 foot tall with an oversized hoodie and I could only see his eyes when he walked by. Lucky for him he was on planet fitness rather than his home planet and thus in the judgement free zone which disallowed me to take pictures of him or I would have put his mug on my blog.
It may have not been as strange as seeing a tall old slender guy walking on the sidewalk in Campbellton, FL in a spiderman suit on the way to work one morning but I suppose seeing a jawa is still noteworthy.
I’ve been a member of several gyms over the years and I have to say planet fitness is among the best and most value priced. It’s $10 a month with a $30ish annual equipment fee so it’s really hard to beat that deal. There is something about their treadmills that seems more comfortable than most other treadmills that I’ve walked on. And with the AC and giant ceiling fans they have good airflow so I don’t sweat quite as bad. Their free wifi is also a plus. So if you’ve been wanting to join a gym and never go, then they are most likely your cheapest way out.
