RE: Gym seems like a waste of money- Why not do your weights at home?
For years I never paid for a gym.

I just worked out in the local community center where it's free. See if your area has a community center. We have weights. Pull up bar. Dip bar. Treadmill. And some barbells and some racks. You can get jacked for free in there if you know what you're doing.

Now I pay for a gym because there is a sauna. I'm loving the sauna followed by a cold shower. Walk out of the gym feeling like a million bucks. . It's worth the $50 a month to me.

Negative aspect is the old dudes who walk around naked in the locker room.

Good question man. Maybe you just stop giving a fuck at a certain age?

There's a lot of perverts and weirdos at gyms.

The sauna is co ed and this dude just stand there at stairs at people. I had to ask him what the fuck his deal was the other day and he just left. Haha.

Seems like a great place to game. You get naked in saunas right?

Then you can always game the chicks who you know for sure are hottest. No SIFing or any makeup/clothes which hide their looks. Plus you are already in a sexual environment.

I spent 700€ with my home gym. I don't regret it. I do it when I want, no waiting, no putting up with "personal trainers" trying to hustle, no driving.

Nah you have to keep your shorts on. But you have to take your sneakers off. It's all very weird.

And I have gamed in there. Currently in the works of a bang of a girl I met in the sauna.

Haha nice.

Really the main things I know about saunas are from Finnish sources. Iirc they go naked there, and its not a big deal.

I wish I had a home gym

no more wasting time driving to and back from the gym
no more idiots squatting in the curl-rack
no more waiting for equipment
no more shitty music
no more playing "find the dumbbell" since noone reracks their weights
can workout naked
can dance and sing along to music between sets without people looking at me funny
