“Hey, Bales! We’re only three acceptable monitoring events from earning massages!” That was a treat reserved for those that hit all of their individual health markers every day for six months.
The two took to their prescribed workouts, each hitting their heart rate markers, their lung capacity markers, their blood oxygen marker. Each marker, when met, was recorded and displayed on an overhead screen, along with a flashing green light. New shelter residents learned very quickly that not meeting markers was a bad idea: the overhead screen flashed red, a very irritating alarm sounded, and a mild electric shock was delivered. It was thus that virtually every resident earned biannual massages.
Ephraim and Bailey’s workouts lasted ninety minutes. They then went together into the antiseptic/cooling chamber-sixty seconds later they came out refreshed, cool, and dry.
