Jane: I’ve just had the best workout at the gym!
Arnold: You don’t need to go to a gym to exercise. I exercise right here in my apartment.
Jane: Oh, yeah? What can you do in this small space?
Arnold: Nearly everything I need to do. Before I do my calisthenics, I stretch. And every morning I do sit-ups, push-ups, and pull-ups.
Jane: That’s not enough to keep you in shape.
Arnold: I’m not finished. Every other day I do lunges and squats, and I lift free weights.
Jane: But what about a cardio workout?
Arnold: I do jumping jacks, run in place, and jump rope on the balcony.
Jane: I guess you’ve got it all figured out.
Arnold: I think so. Have you seen the light? Are you going to stop going to the gym?
Jane: No way! Exercise isn’t the only reason I go to the gym, you know. I go for the view.
Arnold: I have a feeling you’re not talking about the view outside.
Jane: You’ve got that right!
