The most thing I would do at the gym is to feel comfortable and confident, I went to the gym once time for 3 months I really felt like I wasted my money on nothing, they asking for money for everything literally even if you have a small question they call it a consultation so I have to pay for it, therefore I felt disturbed, I waited for the membership expiry with no patient.
I would like a gym where trainers follow practisers seriously doing exercise well with a schedule fit to me.
Actually i am not into gym much. But whenever i see someone doing a gym i would be jealous at how patient and healthy they are
The gym is the best way for who want improve their body. To be honest, there are having many bad stories effect to gymer. Some people go there to gossip and sarcastic. It's so sad. In my opinion, I want to play competitive sports like badminton, volleyball,... Moreover, it can be play outdoor.
In the first task Q7, It's a tricky question.I didn't understood it until I read the comments. And it's really a real addition to me to explore new way to understand and deal with a sentenses and questions.
I would like the gym to be well equipped. It means that the gym has a good variety of equipments enough for members to use without too much waiting. All machines are maintained very well and can be upgraded as needed. It also means there are different types of group classes for members with different interests; the instructors are professional and friendly.
Let me ask to clear my understanding. According to flyer, the gym opens 24/7 and they never close.
In the Task1, Question No.7 "The gym is open at 4 o'clock in the morning."
I though this sentence is "False" because the gym open 24/7.
But the correct answer is "True".
So, please help me to understand the meaning of the sentence. Thank you.
'24/7' means the gym is open 24 hours a day, every day (7 days) of the week. As you say, it never closes.
Therefore it is open at 4 a.m., which means the correct answer is 'True'.
Does that make sense?
All the best,

So, does it mean 24 hours shops open at 4 am?
Hi Eliza Su,
Actually, that's not quite right. We can say that a 24-hour shop is open at 4 am (and 5 am, and 6 am ...). "To be open" is a state.
But we can't say that a 24-hour shop opens at 4 am, because "open" is an action verb. It means to make the shop become open, or to change it from closed to open (e.g., open the shop door, and allow customers to come in). If a shop is open 24 hours, it never opens and never closes (but it is open all day and night).
Does that make sense?
