A California gym plans to offer everything you might want and then some…like basketball courts, weights, classes, and alcohol!

Randy Karr, Club President of California Family Fitness says they’ve applied for their liquor license. “Basic beer and wine service on selected hours. So if you want to play a pickup game of basketball and grab a refreshment after you game, you’ll have the ability to do that.”

Karr says the wet bar is part of a plan to make the new 30,000 sq foot gym complement area bars and nightclubs.

This particular location will not offer childcare, so it truly is geared for adults to enjoy themselves.

The concept has inspired a spirited debate among people in the area.

“I think it’s a great idea what better motivation to work out.”

“I don’t think it’s a good idea. I think that people might be a little irresponsible when they’re working out.  I think that the gym should be the gym and the bar should be the bar.”

I’m sorry but the only buzz you should get at the gym is the feeling after an awesome workout. This is just a hot mess waiting to happen. While working out might be more fun a lil tipsy, can you imagine the possible lawsuits? I can just see it now, drunk falls of elliptical or throws up doing downward dog.

The only mixed drinks a gym should be serving are smoothies.

And that’s today’s helping of The Online Dish with Maggie.
