I have been going to the gym four times a week, every week for the past six years straight. Not being able to go to the gym or have adequate machines to workout is my worst nightmare. It is not because I think I am going to get big, it is because the thought of not being able to have the choice of good gym machines, scares me. We as citizens have been stripped of any routine we have known, or come to know, like going to the gym. My dystopia is due to this coronavirus, which includes what I like to do in my off time, which is my choice to be able to work out whenever I want to.
Even though my dystopia and other dystopias might be different. Each one is important, not being able to have the choice to go to the gym, is the same as being restricted by the government. The definition of dystopia, which states an imaginary or real place whose people may lead a restricted and oppressive existence under some form of authority; helps prove that not being able to go to the gym because the government closed it down, has formed a dystopia for me. Anything that we once did before Coronavirus, we no longer can do anymore. Even though this might be a minor dystopia, it still is a dystopia and the saying goes “too much of a good thing can become a bad thing”. Which can be implied here, the government has shut down a lot of place in order to protect its citizens. But, at some point, if we close down too many places, leaving the people with nothing left to do, then it will slowly drive the people mad until we reached a whole new problem because of the good the government tried to do.
My gym dystopia might be a small matter, but it is restricting me of a right, I have always had. This change caused major problems for me in the beginning and though I am trying to adapt to the change. It is not a permanent fix only a temporary one.
