For some, the sentence “I’m gonna go to the gym” induces cringes of guilt. For others, these cringes are followed shortly by scarfing down Cheez-Its in a defiant attempt to prove to ourselves we don’t have to go to the gym because we can do whatever we want. We are grown adults, for crying out loud!
As a member of both of these groups, I decided to do the only logical thing and make up for an entire college career’s worth of avoiding gym visits in one night. I would go to Henry Crown Sports Pavilion and Aquatic Center from 7 p.m. till close, and see what all the gym regulars were doing at NU’s finest lakeside sports pavilion.
