Do you spend more time trying to talk yourself into going to the gym than you do actually exercising? Would you rather give up bread and swear off bathing suits than step on a treadmill? Do you fear swiping your underused membership card will trip a silent alarm, causing a personal trainer to descend on you like a used car salesman? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, you are not alone.

I Hate the Gym examines the borderline hostile relationship we all secretly have with the gym and offers advice on navigating the cheesy people, funky smells, and sweaty equipment with ease. Once you've learned to deal with the loud talkers and locker blockers, the bad music and the funhouse mirrors, hating the gym will give you peace of mind. Because paying to exercise is a necessary evil and the sooner you accept your hatred, the closer you'll be to reconciling all of your gym Pilates ball at a time.
