Ha!  That's funny  :lol:

I work in fitness, I'm a Pilates instructor.  I interract with people I call 'gym rats', they're constantly exercising, usually in big gyms where there are mirrors everywhere.  So many of them just can't keep from looking at themselves in a mirror.  A friend of mine in particular, who has been a fitness instructor for many years (now she's become certified to teach classical Pilates like me), will have almost full conversations with me, all the while staring at herself in the mirror.  I don't think of it as vanity so much as the constant need to make sure she's sitting correctly, or pulling her abs in, whatever.  I don't look in the mirrors much, I don't want to worry about every little wrinkle I see nowadays  :roll: :lol:

i like the tv screens on the machines at my gym.  they have just the right curve to make me look about 10 lbs lighter  :-)  gym rats.   that's funny!

It comes from my thoughts on treadmills.  I can't stand them.  I'd rather be outdoors walking (I powerwalk, 4.5 to 5 mph, every day, for three miles or so), to me staying indoors on a treadmill is just like being a rat on a wheel.  :evil:
