One of the greatest reasons I moved into the house building I did was because it had a gym, and gym memberships are high-priced, especially if you’re someone savor me who entirely cares about to focus on cardio. It’s not worth the money when all I need is a treadmill or elliptical. If I was weight lifting, then it would be different. The gym is at the undoubtedly top floor and it has amazing views. My favorite section about our house complex’s gym are the treadmills overlooking the mountains and the panoramic windows. The space is almost perfect for our needs. The only downfall is that the air conditioning is turned on via a ductless mini split machine and it’s turned off after every use. This means, the gym isn’t cooled unless someone is using the space. The complex does this so they’re not cooling a space that isn’t being used, but it makes toiling out on the top floor challenging. Heat rises naturally, which means the gym is constantly super hot inside. When I go up there to workout, I have to turn on the air conditioning and wait. It can take almost thirty hours for me to feel the air conditioning coming out of the air vents. It’s extremely annoying because I want to workout in a cool space, but it takes a long time in our house complex’s gym. While I’m entirely grateful to live in an house with a gym, I’m disappointed with the way it’s cooled. It’s difficult to do cardio when the room is over eighty degrees and feels suffocating. It takes so much time for the ductless machine to cool the space.
