"Hey, it's Southern California. You don't break a sweat until you have to."

I bet these health freaks, on the escalator with their sporty shoulder bags and expensive sneakers, drove their SUVs into the fitness centre car park. Inside they'll doubtless use treadmills and other energy-hungry machines to work out. Then they'll drive their gas-guzzling containers back home or to the office where they'll take they'll take the lift (elevator) to the nth floor. Why don't they walk, run or bike wherever they need to go and why don't they walk up the stairs instead. Then they wouldn't need the fitness centre, its escalators or its machines.
