Work Intrudes on Workouts
The ABA Journal is among the sweat-stained magazines at the gym of Washington Post reporter Peter Carlson, who wonders if work-related magazines are more of a D.C. phenomenon.
He also skimmed through magazines for dog lovers, Geico policyholders, chiropractors, physicians, retired federal employees and association executives.
“Do I belong to some kind of weird gym?” he asks. “Or is this a Washington-wide phenomenon, another example of our famous nerdy workaholism? Somehow I doubt that people in Omaha or Tucson read the American Journal of Public Health while huffing and puffing on the StairMaster.”
