    Workin' out at the Lord's Gym

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,115122,00.html

    [Looking for a little worship in your workout? At a Florida gym with plans to become a nationwide chain, you can get fit and get God simultaneously.



    At the Lord's Gym (search) in Clermont, Fla., faith is just as important as form, and exercise classes include gospel spinning, "praisercise" and "yo-god," all done to new-agey Christian music. ...]

    Anyone up for working out to some new age Christian Music? I realize this thread may end up in "off-topics" or even "Trollshido" but hey, it's a gym.
    People of integrity expect to be believed. When they're not, they let time prove them right.

    I've seen one of these in Pensacola; personally I don't see anything wrong with it. I guess it might seem weird to outsiders but living in the South, it didn't phase me at all the first time I saw it. I think it probably caters mostly to Southern Baptists and Fundamentalists. And besides, do you really want these people in your gym preaching to you as you try to work out? This is the real-deal bible belt down here. You haven't seen nothing until you've been yelled at by streetcorner evangelists while just sitting in your car at a stoplight. Unfortuneately I have to drive by that same corner every time I go to the dojo. You just get used to it.

    What do you mean?
    What DO you do to other countries foods? Is your point that we should thank America for inventing the hamburger? Otherwise I have no idea what you're trying to say.
