All the 'smart' fellas...

For the past few evenings when I was in the gym, there was this couple who were here for a workout. Well, definitely nothing wrong with it but somehow, the guy was kinda trying to act smart in front of his girlfriend and was teaching her all the wrong techniques! Somehow I bumped into them a few times as coincidentally, we are almost using the same machines, so I overheard their conversation as well as saw their workout. Well, I was like .... cmon, though its your girl, there's not a need to bullshit in order to show that you know all. He can always approached the resident instructor for help on using the machines and so on. Of course, I am no busybody and mind my business but I find that by trying to act smart, he's actually teaching all the wrong techniques to his friend and worst still, she may hurt herself!

That also brought me to my younger days when I was trying to learn badminton. There were so many 'coaches' around me and teaches the poor me all the right and wrong stuffs, where mostly wrong stuffs. :P Thus, that's the reason why I decided to send my kid to the badminton academy so that he learnt the proper basics.

Ok, that's all for the rantings. It's will be a long weekend in SG in conjunction with her 50th anniversary and the National Day will have an extra day off. Thus, we will be off from Friday to Monday and back to work on Tuesday. :) And, finally, I had my Shokado Wazen bento again tonight... how I miss it!!


Have a good weekend! :)

  1. That's exactly the reason I don't go to the gym. I don't know how to use the equipments there and neither do William. So we opt to swim instead. I can't swim so I become tea bag in the pool. Soak.. soak..

  7. haha, this is not uncommon in the gym I think.. I've seen and overheard the case you mentioned but like you, don't have to care lah, unless I'm the instructor there and it's a responsibility to help members who are "lost".. :)

  8. anyway, it's always good to engage professional coaches if we can afford, at least they can guide us and correct what we have been doing wrong, not forgetting their advices from the experience they have gained..

  10. There's a lot of smart alexs everywhere! I pity the girl for trusting him blindly, maybe she is madly in love with his muscled sweet mouths.
    I agree that we must learn the right techniques to prevent injuries! You are a wise papa!
