Wish the gym would update their AC

I’m not the sort of person who likes to change my routine very much.

I settle into something that works for me and I want to stick with it for as long as I can. That’s why, I’ve been driving the same car for 20 years, wearing the same shirts for 10, and living in the same city for my entire life. That’s also why I refuse to change gyms even though the one that I regularly attend has been suffering from subpar indoor air quality conditions for quite some time now. I first joined the gym back in 1986 when I wanted to lose a little bit of weight. At that time, the indoor air handling system seemed perfect to me. They had adequate air conditioning blasting in from every air vents and a few industrial fans set up in the corners of the gym. I never felt like I was overheating or suffocating when I was working out back in the day. I wish that I could say the same thing about their air handling control devices in the present. These days, I can’t lift a single weight without feeling like I can’t breathe. The indoor air is so hot and humid that I might as well be standing outside in the Summer sun. The locker rooms are filled with mildew and mold because there’s no humidity control around the steamy showers. The air vents seem to be blocked with debris, so you can’t find a refreshing breeze no matter where you stand in the gym. I truly don’t want to have to find a new place to work out, but I feel like I’ve outgrown this 35 year old HVAC system.
