Men vs. Women in the GymJune 3, 2008 at 8:24 pm | Posted in Girltalk | 7 Comments

How on earth do men keep going and going??? Beats the hell out of me. I’ve recently started a 3 week intensive bootcamp that my best friend Bibi created for me to get me toned and fit. It includes 2 days of cardio and 3 days of strength. Considering that I’m in the gym almost every day for almost an hour, I have alot of time on my hands to just observe. And I am noticing an obvious gap in workout behavior of men vs. women. The women take it pretty easy and don’t work out as long. We can be quite sluggish actually. Whereas the men in there get there before me and leave after me and are sweating the entire time. You see them push themselves to the limit running for an hour (whereas I can’t run for 1 straight minute) and doing reps with vigour as if their life depended on it. I have no idea where they get the stamina or the passion to really give it as if they are really enjoying every second of it. But I wish some of it would rub off on me because I still do not enjoy the gym and it’s quite an effort no matter how good the music is or how interesting the TV show is that’s playing.
