I think the affiliates are starting to get a reputation as a gym for women and housewives, at least some of them. When I was in Knoxville, TN and my gf saw a box that I might obviously be interested in visiting, my inlaws commented that they thought only women went there, and my brother in law said he thought it was only housewives. Just saying...

PS. Don't get started with the "what's wrong with housewives", etc. I stalk gorillaman.com everyday just like every other cf male. I'm a supporter ladies.

Hmmph. I'd like to see him keep up with some of the housewives who train at my box...

The thing is, women talk to each other. If one housewife has a good experience at an affiliate, all her friends will sign up in a matter of months.

I don't know that a box being "for housewives" implies that the workouts or atheletes are any less intense.

For some people, it seems to. Those people need to get out more, IMO.

The "housewife that lives with me" routinely beats my times in WODS and I am proud of her for doing it. (Not that i am some kind of star or anything! LOL)

Just saying, you are right ma'am.
