Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, October 16, 2020

SpinCo Hamilton has emerged as the site of one of Canada's worst fitness studio outbreaks. What started as three COVID-positive cases on Monday, Oct. 5, has grown to 72 in just over a week. ... That includes 45 patrons, two staff and 25 secondary "household-spread" cases, meaning the person didn't visit the studio but caught the virus from someone who did. ... Colin Furness, an infection control epidemiologist at the University of Toronto, told The Spec's Sebastian Bron: "This can happen at any gym ... This is not about how well the gym was run; this is about how COVID spreads. If you let people hangout together, without masks, sharing air, in the same space for a prolonged period of time ... this was going to happen anyways."

This is exactly why I am not in the Gym. Even outdoor classes I won't chance because people end up not socially distanced. I did a spin class in August that was setup out doors and the bikes were spaced out but the lack of social distancing otherwise was enough for me to say no thanks...

A gym is just another name for a medevil torture chamber.

I picked up a Schwinn Carbon Blue for 75% under MSRP and just use the Peloton app for classes. A gym had just expanded locations, dropped from 40 bikes to 8 in class and sold off many.

Well that was a deal...

I don't need a class if I am going to do it at home. I just like GOING to the gym because if I actually go I will do what I should do. I find if I don't have a commitment to go to the gym then I either just work later or don't do it more often than not...

It's been a long year though... Hernia repair and now dealing with an 80% rotator cuff tear.

2020 could use a redo...

I picked up Peloton stock in mid March, trading at ~$24 a share. It closed out today at $131.00.

Thank you.

Howard Stern has been doing his best to push the Peloton.

You should be thanking him.
