The Zen Master is by far the most remarkable patron of the late gym hours. As expected, the master is the epitome of grace and equilibrium. The master doesn’t come too late or too early and is neither staying too long or too short. The right measure is something deeply embedded in almost everything the master does. The taste in clothing is refined and the few pieces of the gym attire are always pleasantly matched in both shape and color.
The content of the training is tough, but not too tough, and very well organized. The beginning starts on the mat (same place each time) and it contains a healthy assortment of stretches followed by an intense set of several types of crunches. This last item is of particular importance because the master is also known as The Super Cruncher (not to be confused with another type of crunchers popular in some circles) due to the perfect technique employed in performing them. Next is a lap of walking followed by running. How many laps? Five (half a mile) is the magic number. The speed is much faster than one mile per minute but distinctively slower than a sprint. The running style is another distinctive feature of the master which sports an impeccable and elegant stride. Another lap of walking and another half a mile concludes half of the whole program. The very end is typically reserved for a vigorous series of jumps. Only after this the right amount of effort was properly achieved.
In accordance with the rules of perfect harmony the master is never in a rush and the main parts are separated by brief breaks, usually including a walk to the water fountain. Like many other people the master is also using a portable audio player but, unlike many, this is never allowed to perturb the focus on the main activity.
The master is a young blonde girl which never smiles. Her outstanding perseverance is inspiring and it will surely serve her well in the future.
