Lots of senior members at the gym

Unfortunately, the ladies tend to use up all of the lockers, towels and hot water in the locker room

My neighborhood is well-known for the population of senior citizens. The area offers lovely beaches and a slower pace. Retirees have been migrating to this neighborhood for decades. The mild weather is a big draw. Some live here full time. Others have vacation homes and spend half of the year here and the other half up north. Our state has now legalized medical marijuana. Many believe the law passed because of the interest of the older generations. Many of these seniors smoke or consume cannabis for a wide range of health issues. I have no problem with the large number of senior citizens in my community. They are typically very friendly. The only time I get a little aggravated is at the fitness centers. The seniors tend to fill up the machines. An older lady or man might take over a treadmill or an elliptical for over an hour. They walk at a very slow pace while I’m waiting to get in a twenty minute sprint. They also sign up for most of the fitness classes. I’m not happy when I attend the first class and realize that 90% of the students are in their upper seventies. It means that the glass will be geared toward them and I won’t get anything out of it. However, I’ve noticed that our senior gym members are more conscientious about wiping down the machines when they are done. Unfortunately, the ladies tend to use up all of the lockers, towels and hot water in the locker room. It would be nice if different days of the week at the gym catered toward different age groups. Even if they divided the classes by times of day, I would prefer it.
