When I am floating around my NAS box and feel like digging out some old school I can guarantee that these 3 will be in the first 10 played, they are tunes that remind me of my sisters too old for me to have purchased them. But still young enough to remember them playing them a lot.

I suspect everyone has their weird gym rituals, but I think my gym is super special..
So far I have seen:
Someone who looks in the mirror multiple times to check their socks are level before going to work out
Someone who sprays themselves with deodorant before going to work out
The person who gets a little too into their tunes and starts waving their arms into the air (thumb & little finger Ozzy Osbourne Style!)
Someone running on the treadmill in their socks
Someone who complained about not liking the rowing machine because it makes them sweat!! In a GYM!!
A man on the bike in jeans
People in the gym in woolly hats (what’s with that?)
I see plenty people finish their set and get changed spray on a little deodorant and then go on with their day, but that’s less ritual and more nasty.
My odd rituals are:
I only go on even machines, which is weird because it depends on where you start counting from, if you count from the other end, I only go on odd machines.
I get in the shower in my pants, only because most of my workout is cardio and I sweat A LOT and I try and wash some of the sweat out before they go into my bag (otherwise they are like cardboard after a couple weeks!!)
I tend to be quite noisy on the rower, I can imagine it could be quite annoying to other people, but I do give 100% which means some growling..
So what about you what odd rituals are at your gym?
Unfortunately was little too young to really appreciate John Holt when he was in his prime even though his music was played when I was knee high to a grass hopper in our house. However as I grew up and went to the old timers parties I got to listen to more and more of his music and appreciated him a whole lot more..
He died this week, but his music will always be timeless…
There are A LOT of hits but I am going to bring you the big ones you may have heard before…
