Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it.
That’s something I had heard for a really long time.
It was almost a mantra for my dad. He believed fervently that we sometimes got the stuff we needed instead of what we wanted. But that could always come in different forms. For me, I was always complaining about the air conditioning in the gym. My wife never had this complaint. But then again, she is such a gym rat and just loves to sweat. I’m not a gym rat and like to have decent heating and cooling during a workout. It’s all I can to do just to get myself motivated to go workout. So when I would walk inside the gym only to be hit with a wall of heat and humidity, it did nothing but sap my motivation. I’m not sure if it was the commercial HVAC equipment or the way the thermostat was used but, I just couldn’t get comfortable in that place. So I wished that I could just workout inside a place that had decent HVAC equipment. Well, the pandemic hit and I ended up getting my wish in a very round about way. Since we couldn’t use the gym due to Covid, we gave up the gym membership. However, we soon had a home gym in our basement. My wife scoured the area for used equipment and we got to working out at home. I had the HVAC company come out to install a ductless heat pump. And there I was enjoying great air conditioning while working out.
