Offer is good in every state except Hawaii, I would see people come to the gym right from the beach load the bar up and bench into the 400’s in flip flops. So I have no issue with it.
Now talk About the real issue. Grown Ass Men Wearing 1970 thigh high gym Shorts! Ahggggg [/quote]
Maybe, but I concur. Biggest guy I ever seen in a gym was in Hawai’i and it actually got me serious into training.
Story: I needed a gym while in Hawai’i for the summer, and the closest gym they had was in the off room in a lobby in the community I stay in while in Hawai’i. Well, tread mills and dumbbells in a 30x15 room wasn’t going to cut it for me.
So, I booked it to the beach for the morning, and noticed there were some big guys on the beach. I ended up asking one of them where to find a gym. They pointed me to an old dirt floor boxing gym, it was right off the beach.
I came back the next day before work, and I saw an enormous man riding a beach cruiser, which he dwarfed, in swim trunks and flip flops. He parked his bike outside the gym, came in put 5 plates on each side, hit it 12 times, put another plate and hit for another twelve. Did that one more time before getting on his bike and riding back from where he came.
Question: You going to tell that man he is acting like a girl, because he wears flip flops while he squats with no gear except swim trunks?[/quote]
When I mentioned biking to the gym overseas, I was on a tropical island (Samoa) and it was a lot like what you just described. Nobody wears shoes there, they’re not only impractical but in most places you’re required to take them off anyways. They’re also very expensive. I wasn’t the only one that would wander in to a gym with flip flops on. I was one of the only ones that would take them off though, the locals were so use to them they would wear them while training. I was always worried my foot would slide off. I brought a pair back home with me and still wear them regularly. After not wearing shoes for 2 years my heels hurt if I wear shoes for more than about 3 hours.
