I recently got a membership at the greatest gym in town; I used to have a membership there several years ago, but I let it die because I stopped going and it was no longer worth the cost.
I’ve been wanting to get back in the pool, and this year for the first time, they offered a summer membership, so I happily got it.
Now, I am able to swim in the pool again, and that is all I want to do. Every day, they go out with a thermostat and take the temperature of the water, and they post the thermostat readings inside so you know it before you get in to swim. I’m not sure what difference it makes; I am swimming no matter what the thermostat says. Even so, I know there is always debate among the people in the pools over the thermostat reading. Some people want the water hotter and are proponents of heating the pool even in the summer. Others don’t like the heating and want the water to be cool when they swim. I know the lap swimmers are even more adamant about not turning on the heater until it is absolutely necessary. I agree with that. First of all, I don’t like being wasteful, so why use the heater if you don’t need it? Of course, the second pool is used for activities, which means water aerobics. Those people often have arthritis, and the arthritis foundation says that pool water should be quite warm, so the heater should be used even in the summer.
