In a city like San Francisco where the weather is generally always breezy, nice and ideal for working up a sweat outside, why on earth would you need or want to get a gym membership? Why not create your own make-shift gym outdoors? With its stone stairs,grueling hills, running trails, natural inclines, satchel-bag-toting population and breathtaking views, any human would reconsider the need for a regular inside gym membership. some So far in 1 month, I’ve been more motivated, more fit and far richer with my new gym. First these stairs, the Lombard Street steps (there’s 300 on each side actually), and the hills up to my apartment, I’m all set. Gym, what?
