If you are only interested in the Gym Instructor’s job….skip this crap and scroll below
Japanese believe in manufacturing goods that last for a certain period. I am told, they purposefully don’t manufacturer goods to last a lifetime. Unfortunately, the name of this philosophy currently evades me.
This has made me believe that God is Japanese. Why else would God ensure that a heart is good only for a certain number of heartbeats?
Under such circumstances, it made no sense to fasten my heartbeats in a gym by working out. Besides, my body-fat index is 1:1….one small body and one huge chunk of fat.
Now, why am I telling you this? Because, two days back an old NCC friend of mine who is now settled in Sharjah, (in UAE) called me up to say that she along with her friend was starting a gymnasium and needed a lady gym instructor from India.
“What all should she know? Karate? Judo?” I asked.
“She should be young & energetic…and should believe in working out…that’s all,” Roopa replied.
“Would be great, if she is an Indian.”
If you want an Indian, she might not work on Sundays. How flexible do you want her?”
“She should be able to do splits…that’s all.” Roopa thundered into her mobile.
“No no…what will be the work hours, Roopa?”
“The regular gym work hours.” Roopa was getting impatient. Why do all women get impatient with me?
“Any proficiency required?” I thundered back. Sometimes with women, you have to give it back to them…so I faked my impatience.
“Yes, Yoga and aerobic proficiency is a must. Why don’t I mail it to you and you carry it on your so-so blog as is?”
Needless to say, she was on the edge by then. I didn’t pursue the matter further and decided to mention the requirements as is. So here goes.
Do take a look and if interested….please get in touch with her. Or if you know somebody who would like to apply, please share.
