That’s really old news…

Recently my gym added a piece of equipment that has proved quite popular:

This confuses me, because these devices have been known to be useless for what? 20 years at least?  I don’t get why people use them.  I understand the whole ‘get something for as little as possible’ thing, but this has zero chance of being helpful.  It also comes are very little cost.  Still, you give up a little, for absolutely nothing.  To me, this is the economic equivalent of the drunk guy asking if you can spare any change.

I also wonder about some the folks I meet at the gym.  Obviously it’s none of my business, but there is a certain group of people who are just never going to achieve anything in the gym.  As there have been times when I was also highly ineffective (because I didn’t understand what real effort was), I wonder if it would be doing them a favor to encourage them, etc. etc.

Yes, that makes me the obnoxious guy at the gym, so I’ve never actually done this.  I just sort of quietly wonder in my head if they think they are really exercising but aren’t seeing results because ‘insert excuse here’.
