Visits to recreation centres tend to be unpredictable experiences. Even if you manage to eliminate the professional view, you are never completely sure of what to expect next. In most cases, you are dealing with the clichéd repetition of well-known patterns as platforms for displays of muscles. Design and equipment are mostly limited to a sequence of awkward concepts.
