Podcast 21. Gym (Escuchar/ Listen)


Después de Navidad y de las vacaciones de verano la mayoría de la gente (incluida yo) decidimos ir al gimnasio a perder esos kilos que hemos engordado comiendo y bebiendo demasiado y siendo demasiado perezosos para caminar o hacer ejercicio.

Leí esta definición de gimnasio en alguna parte “Un gimnasio es un lugar con gente moviéndose tan rápido como pueden pero estando siempre en el mismo sitio o levantando cosas una y otra vez que siempre acaban estando donde estaban”.

Los gimnasios han cambiado mucho últimamente a al menos en mi ciudad. Fui al gimnasio y la lista de posibilidades era mas larga que el menú de un buen restaurante: Body Tonic, Body Balance, Aerobics, Spinning, Pilates, Step… y la posibilidad de mezclar dos o incluso tres si quieres ir también los fines de semana.

Los precios son tan variados como las ofertas.

Estoy dispuesta a sufrir y sudar al menos tres veces por semana y pagar por ello pero me pregunto Merece la pena estar tan relajado durante el verano que necesito al menos tres meses para adelgazar lo que engorde en solo uno?” y la respuesta es “Por supuesto, si no mereciera la pena no habrías estado habiéndolo toda tu vida”.

After Christmas and summer holidays most people (included me) decide to go to the gym to lose those kilos we have gained eating and drinking too much and being too lazy to walk or do some exercise.

I read this definition of a gym somewhere “ A gym is a place with people moving as fast as they can but staying in the same place or lifting things over and over that always end up where they started off”
I think gyms have changed a lot lately, or at least they have in my town. I went to the gym and the list of possibilities was longer than the menu in a good restaurant: Body Tonic, Body Balance, Aerobics, Spinning, Pilates, Step, the list goes on. And the possibility of mixing two of them or even three if you are willing to go at weekends as well.
The prices are as varied as the offers.
I’m determined to suffer and sweat at least three times a week and to pay for it but I wonder “Is it worth being so relaxed during summer that I need at least three months to get rid of what I gained only in one?” and the answer is “Of course, if it weren't worth you wouldn’t have been doing it all your life”.

Dear Teresa Sanchez,

I love your podcast! I have recommended it to my friends. My sister-in-law is Peruvian-Canadian and she enjoyed your podcast on bull running in Pamplona. I hope you don't mind but I want to put a link to your blog on my blog.

Please excuse the English note. I read Spanish but I only speak a little. (I studied French at school but Spanish is something I am trying to teach myself.)

Thanks again for your wonderful teaching, from one teacher to another.
