My wife begged me for years to join her at the gym.
Well, I found every excuse I could find to resist that invitation.
I would even stay late inside the zone controlled HVAC of the office until I knew she was already at the gym. I love my wife but I’m just not all that fond of going to the gym. There are a lot of reasons for that. Some of those reasons are purely insecurity on my part because I’m not particularly athletic. My wife, on the other hand, is quite an athlete and has always been in great shape. My shape is not great but it’s getting better now that I figured out the best way for me to workout. Another big problem about working out at the gym besides being self conscious was the heating and cooling. More specifically, it’s the HVAC cooling that is the problem for me. It seems as though the commercial HVAC in the gym just wasn’t very good because it was always so hot and thick in there. My wife didn’t mind but it just was another factor that kept me from getting the exercise I sorely needed. Finally, I chose to put together a home gym in the basement. Once I found the equipment locally from those who had given up and were selling the equipment, I called the HVAC company. They came out and installed a ductless heat pump in the basement where the new gym was located. This has been such a great change for me. I’m working out and getting the exercise my body craves. But I’m also super comfortable no matter the season with the ductless heat pump.
