I am just having a sit down after yet another visit to the gym, as I left I noticed that our posh fitness centre is having yet another recruiting drive.
There is a poster offering a new mountain bike to anyone who joins before the weekend and a banner along the car park fence offering two months free to anyone who takes out 12 months membership.
It made me think; getting hooked on treadmills, cross trainers and rowing machines is a bit like a drug addiction. Like drug addicts, fitness addicts seem to like getting other people hooked with their addiction.
I’m not sure whether to tell my son-in-law about these special offers or to go and see my doctor and ask to be put into rehab.
