We thus get to the third reason why a focus on locally realised practical mechanisms is necessary: to grasp the power of the interaction order, its creative potential in the acquisition of specialised dispositions which may or may not concur with broader social boundaries. In contrast with this, Smith Maguire appears to choose a rather structuralist and functionalist option, which starts and concludes with class reproduction leaving very little space to explore, so to speak, what is going on in the middle, namely how ﬁtness training is practically organised and external habitus is actively and indeed creatively negotiated via lived ﬁtness The Cultural Location of Fitness Gyms 39 culture even in heavily commercialized settings.
Enjoyment” and “fun” are taken as a measure of the success of the gym – for example, ﬁve out of eight items in a major global chain’s Customer Satisfaction Questionnaire distributed in Britain in 2005 relate to pleasure, fun, involvement and enthusiasm, and the remaining three are on difﬁculty, safety and trainers’ attention. Fitness magazines in the USA, UK and Italy similarly stress that “having fun makes exercise more effective”; they are full of tips to help readers make every exercise session “fun and easy”, and suggest going to the gym with a partner or listening to one’s own favourite music.

As most of the commercial ﬁtness centres are mixed environments, it is important to address both men and women and the way they manage to share the gym space, partly reproducing, partly challenging received gender identities and differently engaging with the surreptitious sexualisation of their bodies (Chapter 3).
