News; Nike MagistaX Proximo II DF IC - Black/White/Dark Grey/Stadium G

Published: Thursday 14 September, 2017

We're both wearing Spa World's gender coded uniforms, though Steve's top is a nice, soft T shirt reserved for very large men, while the rest of us chafe in rough canvas. On our wrists are orange plastic bracelets dangling numbered locker keys. At the center of the room is a raised floor where people hang out on the mats, Nike MagistaX Proximo II chatting, sleeping, reading, or watching one of two large screen TVs. Around the edges of the room are saunas, each of which offers a host of special benefits. The amethyst room, for instance, "prevents skin ailments," and can "cure various geriatric diseases." While the bade pools are foggy and dim, the poultice room is noisy and bright. In fact, every time there's an announcement, I frantically check my number to make sure I'm not in the wrong place or in trouble somehow. In addition to the saunas, the poultice room is ringed by staircases. One has a curious sign: "The men's sleeping room has been closed until further notice." I investigate.

At the top of the stairs is another sign: "Security Camera Now Recording." I tentatively push open a door and peek in. Five men look up from their respective Korean newspapers, mildly annoyed by the interruption. I belatedly notice a sign that says "smoking room." No one is currently smoking, though clearly someone has been. Huge silver ashtrays overflow with spent cigarettes. No one is exercising, but three spagoers stand barefoot on what appear to be violently vibrating walkers. The cardiovascular benefit of these machines seems questionable, but I Nike MagistaX Proximo II DF IC - Black/White/Dark Grey/Stadium Green For Sale give it a try anyway, tentatively pressing the button for "low." A platform tilts rapidly back and forth, shaking free an idea. Maybe the real purpose of spas and their many devices is to provide unusual sensory experiences. The salutary benefits of hot tubs, saunas, and body shakers provide a convenient cover for adults to engage in some tactile fun.
