Yesterday I walked into my Glitter Gym and was hit with the smell of wet paint. Before I could think about why they wouldn’t prop open a door to air out the place, I walked into the free weight room. The walls were painted a pumpkin orange.
Back in my Florida days I learned from an owner of a Gold’s franchise that the two most common colors used for gyms are blue and red. Seeing blue is supposed to increase your endurance. Seeing red is supposed to increase your strength. I never followed up with that trivia to see if there was any truth to it. But I did have a dazed look on my face as I looked over the orange walls.
The one cool trainer spotted my look and said that they had just painted it. He then said that everyone hates it. I corrected him and told him there was one person who loved it.
