I’m Not Sure How I Feel About The Lunk Alarm


Thanks to getting a new job, I’ve got the time and money to improve my health. A big part of this is exercising regularly, so I joined up at the Planet Fitness gym in my neighborhood. I’m liking it so far, but yesterday I had my first encounter with the infamous “lunk alarm.” This is a big blue siren the gym staff triggers if somebody is being disrespectful. (too loud, dropping weights, being intrusive, etc.) While I like the theory, the alarm is terribly loud, and I kind of think judging people for being insensitive is a bit insensitive itself.
