At the gym on base there is a workout incentive program. For every five times you work out for more than 30 minutes, you are entered into a monthly raffle for a free massage. Guess what? I was the October winner! Yay me!
I collected my prize yesterday, and I have to say that it was just not quite right. First of all, the massage took place in the gym in a small room off to the side. The massage table was a hard and plastic with paper from a doctor's office laid on top. There were two towels on top of the paper. I was instructed to take off my clothes, unhook my bra and tuck the towel into my bottoms. Then, with all of the lights on, the "masseur" started his work.
I'm not sure he has any actual massage qualifications; he's a boxing instructor. That said, he did a nice job, but it was just to hard to relax while my cheeks were being bruised by the plastic table. Let's just say I'm glad it was free.
