Snack machines at the gym

Why the heck isn't there ever a snack machine at any of the gyms.I would think that would be a great motivator imo. Yes, I am serious!
I am talking about snickers bars, dorritos, etc.

It is a great idea--just sayn'

  • Haha! Snickers at the gym sounds good to me! I wouldn't mind that damn elliptical (SP?) so much if I could eat a snickers bar while I'm on it! Lol :)

  • We have a gym where I live and I haven't used it yet but I walk a lot with ds and I watch what I eat btw. I do believe in rewards though, depending on the individual.
    I have been losing weight btw.

  • What is even funnier is the gym on base DOES have a snack machine, LOL. No snickers though. Popcorn, nuts, power bars, gatorade. It would be funny to stock a couple of the places in it with snickers and reeses and hide a camera.

  • There's a 24 Hour Fitness in Carlsbad, CA with an ESCALATOR to take you up half a level from the parking lot to the front door, so why not have a junk food snack machine next to it? It's like the people people who park illegally so they don't have to walk as far, then jump on the treadmills. WTF??? Or wait 25 minutes for a close space. It's a different kind of lazy! LOL! I think these are the people who would totally go for the Snickers on their way out. You'd have to hide it in a "Corner of Shame", though! LOL
