The Perfect Globo Picture

This is the way every gym should be! Maybe we can replace all staircases to be like this so we never have to walk or be active again

Come on, those guys would pass out if they used the stairs.

Re: The Perfect Globo Picture

What is it with people these days?!?! They don't want to work for anything and want everything to be handed to them. It is getting ridiculous...

We are a rare breed

Re: The Perfect Globo Picture

<------ routinely uses the escalator.

Also, my chemistry class is on the 3rd floor of the science building, so every time I walk by the elevator I push the button. If it opens before I get too far away, I get in it. Feel free to judge me. Just like I judge the people that get in to only go up or down 1 floor.

That reminds me of college. We lived in a 10 story dorm (I lived on the 9th) and if anyone going up from the ground floor pressed anything less than 5 they got the evil eye and/or harassed, haha.

That building was great for stair running workouts.

Re: The Perfect Globo Picture

I always use the escalator when available. I Just think they're fun. Along with the conveyor belts at airports. I feel like produce being shuttled to my plane.

I like to walk on the moving sidewalk. Feels like I'm just gliding along.

Re: The Perfect Globo Picture

IIRC, this is in OB in San Diego, and the gym is on the second level of a shopping center. In other words, the escalators don't JUST go to the gym.

I like it when I hit the end full stride and almost fall on my face.
