Last week while I was browsing Gaelick (which I happen to write for, hey, you should check me out) I read a post on going to the gym, using apps to help lose weight and listening to books instead of music while you work out. I tried to get some audio books on my mobile five minutes before I went to the gym and then found out the app didn’t really work.
Anyway, a brilliant idea struck me. What if there were book clubs for gyms? A group of women who want to get fitter or lose a pound or two, who also happen to love books, go to the gym together and listen to the same book and then can chat about it. I would totally go! Not only would you be distracted by the plot but you’d be keeping trim by doing it with other women who have the same goals and passions. Genius right?
I’ve not googled this idea for fear it’s already a real thing but as far as I’m aware it’s not and I think I should kick start a trend. Book Clubs For Chubs maybe, I haven’t settled on a name for my brilliant new movement. I just thought I would present the idea to the world in the hopes of promoting a slightly healthier, book loving world.
