Exercise has changed a great deal in recent years. Many gyms have now become more like health spas. They have space for exercise equipment and a healthy snack area. Larger ones have now added spa luxuries such as massages and saunas. Many of these new additions are to attract people that want to feel pampered as they get their workout. People have begun to see working out as a fun social occasion rather than a necessary chore.
The gym has traditionally not been a place to meet new people and find dates. Many women joined diet centers or worked out at home rather than being seen sweating at a public gym. These days, the gym is a popular place for women. This makes it a great place to consider when seeking a new partner. Not only are there more women, but they are also healthier and in better shape than ever before.
