Bally installed more big-screen monitors at its Loop and South Loop locations. However, most of the new devices are only playing Bally TV and flashing video notices like, “Please re-rack your weights after use.” Plus, one of the new monitors at the South Loop club is behind a weight-lifting machine, creating obstructed views from many angles. It all seems like unnecessary additions. Do we really want to see unending reruns of 4 Minutes with Madonna and Justin Timberlake? Or maybe the idea is to distract members from noticing the crumbling facilities.
Enjoy your workout.
