Sports have always been a part of my life.
My folks had me involved in every seasonal sport they could put me in.
I think this was not so much them thinking I was a talented athlete as it was just wearing me out. I was a real rambunctious kid so, I get it. I would have done the exact same thing. Exercise and sports went with me through my entire life. I have been more prone to playing sports than just exercising for exercise sake. Sweating while playing is so much more satisfying. Plus, I hate going to a gym with poor HVAC. The reality of so many people sweating around me while they spin a treadmill was never something I found to be appealing. Every gym I have ever been in was always way too hot or way too cold. The HVAC comfort level was simply never there. Now that I am aging, I am trying to take it a bit easier on my joints. Less sports and more exercise I guess. This has resulted in me converting one of the guest rooms into a home gym. I was able to find exercise equipment on the cheap. There are so many people who are begging to unload practically new home gym machines. So, once I got everything set up, I thought I was through. But, this wasn’t to be because of the old HVAC gym curse. I found that I would have to turn our HVAC cooling setting so low just to keep the home gym space cool enough for a work out. I solved this real quick by installing a ductless heating and cooling unit in there. Now, I can independently control the home gym temperature.
