    I kid you not. Despite it being called "Paris Gym" and everything inside painted purple. It wasn't until after a few sessions I realized I hadn't seen a woman and in fact there wasn't even any women's changing rooms. Then everything kind of clicked.

    That happens in HK too. I asked a local what he was up to once and his response was " I blowdry my peanut"

    Happens in the female changing rooms too. For those wishing to counter the image above...

    It wasn't Jubilee Hall in Covent Garden, was it?

    I was a member years ago. Great for women, the classes were good and I loved the kickboxing classes. Our trainer pushed us like he actually believed that us women could do better with our upper cuts, side kicks etc..

    I do remember Rupert Everett as a member. I would often see him on the steps on his phone, constantly, then straight to some young good looker for some chit chat. He is skinnier in the flesh.

    Although I don't use the gyms here, in the past, in former host countries I have, and I don't like arrogant trainers. So what if I wear just regular tank top from H&M and shorts, no make up. I'm there to get fit, not do the catwalk.

    I think that is in reference to people who would dry clothes with them....

    I have a guy who dries his swimming suit with the hair dryer at my pool...he spends about 20 minutes doing it......
