12/29/2017: RIP to the spin studio at BSC

Many of you that go to BSC West Newton already know the spin studio is freezing. Yesterday it was 41 degrees. Today it’s 39.

Management took a spin class there this week in her snow pants. Yesterday I could only do about 5 minutes of what can be VERY loosely called Krav Maga, the Israeli art of self-defense, before I got too cold.

Krav Maga

Not only are the pipes in this building vulnerable to freezing, I am now vulnerable to  attack because I can’t practice my moves.

This has been a problem for months — the temperature I mean. When members complain to BSC management, they’re told it will be serviced and to STOP MESSING WITH THE THERMOSTAT. (I used all caps because members have been getting yelled at).

If anyone was ever foolish enough to complain about my moves, I can assure you the consequences would be severe.


Management (BSC’s not mine) had the HVAC system serviced yesterday. Slight problem is it didn’t get fixed and now it’s colder in there.

Um question you guys?

What’s gonna happen over the next week with a high temperature of like 15 degrees? It’s called a burst pipe you guys. And that’s when water bursts through the pipe it froze in and destroys everything like walls, floors, ceilings and also Village Bank below.

So RIP spin studio. And possibly the back half of Village Bank. This has been the longest, slowest, most avoidable train wreck we may ever know in West Newton.
