Upon arrival, I estimated about 15-20 personal scattered throughout the room on various body equipment. I noticed that I was the youngest person there; everyone else (by the looks) was ranging from late 20’s to early 50’s. The first significant aspect that I always realize is that there are more males than females, typically a 4:1 ratio. The diversity of race/ethnicity was noticeable but not really a concern towards the atmosphere of the gym. Before I started the observations I did run on the treadmill so that the gym visit wasn’t a total waste. Afterwards, my observation was done in the corner with the mats, while I stretched for twenty-five minutes.
My assignment is to write a critique paper on the facility named “Planet Fitness”. Planet Fitness is a gym that labels itself rather as a “fitness club” that aspires people of all ages, weights and heights to come and hit the gym. Planet Fitness promises a judgement free environment, allowing for even your most introvert and shy gym goers to enjoy their workout without feeling self-conscious because of other gym attendee’s opinions. On the workout floor, their facilities are equipped with mostly cardio machines, with some weight machines and an abdominal exercise area. Within the locker rooms, they come well equipped for serving mass amounts of gym goers at a time. The locker rooms include showers, sinks, and toilets, urinals in the male locker
Humanists celebrated the mind, beauty, power, and enormous potential of human beings. They believed that people were able to experiance god directly and should have a personal, emotional relationship to their faith. God had made the world but humans were able to share in his glory by becoming
Humanist's believe that this world and this life is all we have. Once this “machine” (the body) breaks down and dies, death is the final and there is nothing more beyond that. Once the body starts decomposing, all that remains or they suggests lives on, is the impact they left on loved ones and through their culture (Weider & Gutierrez, 2011, p64).
Although humanism has several different meanings, especially for those who consider themselves humanists, this definition in my opinion best explains humanism as it is applied in our class. In a journal entry written by Robert L Sinsheimer, titled “Humanism and Science”, he explains that humanists are concerned with
What is a humanist? Many people do not think about what defines a humanist. Kurt Vonnegut put it shortly: “Being a Humanist means trying to behave decently without expectation of rewards or punishment after you are dead.” Though it isn 't what anyone will find in Webster 's Dictionary, it is a simple statement that informs the world of what these individuals believe.
From all the question that I asked, pretty much everyone answered with an immediate answer with good information. From asking questions I was able to to see the different classes that they had available forming dancing, aerobics, to open studios for yourself and friends as long as you are using the room. What the REC taught me is that there are many ways to be physically active and you can also enjoy it even more especially with friends. I noticed a huge difference when I was in the treadmill by myself compared to playing games and staying active with my friends. I noticed a huge difference within myself because I wanted to play longer and win which what was very

Nusbaum, 39, is a NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) certified trainer with additional specialties in Corrective Exercise, Performance Exercise, P90x, and Melt Hand and Feet, TRX Level 1 &2, PIYO and K9 Fit Club. “One of the reasons I got into physical training was through fitness, I was able to solve my pain and realized if I could do that for me, I could do it for others,” Nusbaum said. Her journey of physical transformation started more than five years ago when she realized that she weighed two pounds less than her Army husband, Eric Johnson, with his linebacker shoulders. As
Everyone knows how important exercise is for maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but for most people, the gym can be an intimidating place. There are copious machines and options, which makes it hard to develop a routine that will work for you.
In today’s busy world, it can be hard to find the time to even think about one’s fitness, let alone actually do anything to maintain it. The average person has school, work, family, pets, and many more distractions in their life to ensure their fitness is left on the backburner. However, when the thought of exercise does eventually enter their mind, the thought that often comes forefront is that of the gym. The concept of a gym is simple, populate a building with the necessary equipment for a variety of physical activities, attracting people who want to get that perfect body or even just get back in shape. However, many people who have never frequented a gym often come up with a plethora of reasons not to go.

Humanists believe that people are influenced by their self-perceptions and personal meanings attached to their experiences. The humanist theory helps to develop critical thinking, judgment, and creativity. They encourage to empower and take control over their learning processes not be just concentrating on the reward at the end They encourage people to look into themselves for the answers to their questions. Behaviorists believe the exact opposite. They believe we are solely the product of our environment, and by controlling rewards and punishments you can shape the behavior of another person. Humanists also believe in stimulating people though asking question to help them draw on their past experiences to extract lessons (DeMar, 2007).
Encarta Dictionary says that Humanism is a system of thought that centers on human beings and their values, capacities and worth. Encarta also goes on the say that, in philosophy, humanism is an attitude that emphasizes the dignity and worth of an individual. A basic premise of humanism is that people are rational beings who possess within themselves the capacity for truth and goodness. I see myself as a being a humanist through everyday life. I always try to see the good in a person when he/she makes me angry or sad, and say I to myself that maybe that person has had a bad day and living life is difficult at the moment. Socrates was even an early humanist of sorts. He can be quoted as saying, "to know the good is to do the
We live in a society, today, where everyone has different needs. There are different kinds of people everywhere; the full-time worker, the total family parent, and the people who work multiple jobs to pay the rent… For that reason, local health clubs vary with what they offer so that everyone has a place they can go to stay active and fit. Some examples of these varying gyms are LA fitness, Lifetime Fitness, and Cardinal Fitness. Each club has something different that they specialize in. As much as that is a good quality, some people have trouble choosing what the best gym is for them because they have to choose a quality each health club specializes in over all other clubs.
