For most members, Bally TV is a buzzing annoyance to be ignored under the general clanking, whirring and grunting sounds of the club. But for the elder crowd occupying the facilities in the early day part, the music video network is a captivating entertainment vehicle. Old women huddle weepy-eyed during the Michael Jackson video montage. And grandpas literally stop mid-rep to gape slack-jawed at the gyrating hips and booties of Beyoncé and Shakira. These poor souls cannot break free from the hypnotic power of Bally TV.
Enjoy your workout.
