Last month, in a sudden realization that summer is just around the corner, I joined the gym. And then proceeded to go one time. The truth is, I have a history of this kind of gym-avoiding behavior. One time when I was living in Athens, I walked into my local gym on an impulse, spent an unspeakable amount of money upfront on a year membership, walked out the door feeling incredibly proud of myself for finally committing to physical fitness, and never went back. I guess I thought at the time that paying a ridiculous amount of money for the entire year would motivate me to go. It didn’t.
Someday I’ll learn to accept the fact that, deep down, I hate the gym and that nothing will ever motivate me to go because being there makes me feel like a gerbil in a cage spinning round on one of those wheel things. But today is not that day, my friends! Mostly because Nike and & Other Stories recently collaborated to create this collection of sneakers. Might this be the motivation I’ve been needing all along? Probably not, but these sneakers are still pretty cool.
Maybe I should just stick to yoga. But then again, there’s no footwear involved in yoga…
