I’m a group ex instructor and unfortunately, all of the gyms around here are closed down because of the plague that shall not be named. I need to make sure I maintain my current level of fitness - but I feel awful for the little 94 year old lady who lives in the condo below me.
Now, I’m always very mindful of this because I was a first floor dweller a few years back and the girl above me would jump around like a kangaroo. I would hear every step. It would sound like she was coming through the ceiling. Then again, these were very poorly built condos.
I’m not sure what the noise level is in the place I’m currently at, but I have to bite the bullet and start working out at home. I’m sure there are a lot of people doing the same thing right now, but I feel awful about it. Am I being totally rude by doing this? Maybe I should let her know it’s going to be a 4-5 x’s a week occurrence? I always work out late morning/early afternoon - never at night. And she never leaves the house so I can’t wait for when she’s out.
For reference, I do Cathe Friedrich workouts, so pretty high impact/intensity most days.
