Net-Fit turned out to be inside one of the many smaller buildings that huddled at the outskirts of the skyscrapers in Electown. Located in a three story building, it catered mostly to office workers from the business district. The branding was slick and welcoming and when she arrived in the Lobby at a quarter after one in the afternoon she found a few people in business attire going in and out of the locker room doors.
Sweat began to form on her palms but she straightened her shoulders and waited for her turn in line. When she stepped up to the counter the primly dressed receptionist in a tight polo shirt smiled at her and greeted her the same as all the other customers.
After a short speech about the facilities on site (beyond the typical gym set-up there was also a shoe-care kiosk that offered cleanings and short-term rentals to guests and a massage parlour on the third floor) and some of the odder commodities (offering to tie the PET to a tracker app that would only unlock certan levels of chips or signature abilities as workout goals were met), and Sophia was finally free to set her backpack on a hook on an exercise bike in line with others with a large TV hanging in the wall in front of them, one for every bike.
"Well, we're here. Are you ready?" She asked as she finished arranging her chips on the tray in front of the bike and settled the PET into the brackets. Vasilia flashed her two thumbs up and bounced with eagerness.
"Yeah! Let's hit the Net!"
"Remember, shopping first then looking for trouble! Vasilia.EXE, Plug In!" With a certain satisfied flourish she pulled the cord out and slotted it into the jack on the bike. Instantly the console lit up and Sophia hurridly clamoured onto the seat as she watched the PET's screen go dark, then light up again as the TV across from her clicked on.
