Me: Phil, when I’m using the weight machines, should I be upping the reps or the kilos?
Me: (looks blank)
PT: They’re in pounds not kilos
Me: But… Simon told me they were kilos
PT: Why would you listen to Simon?
Me: He’s the manager…
Yes, lovely readers I’m afraid I have been inadvertently lying to you. Turns out the weight machines in the ladies gym are in pounds, whilst the dumbbells are in kilos, and the weight machines in the mixed area are also in kilos, but there are two set of dumbbells down there, one in pounds and one in kilos. Confused yet? I am, and apparently so was the gym bod who advised me! And wow, don’t I feel dumb for not checking?!
