Everyone loves going to the gym (well, maybe not everyone), but we hate it when all the good classes are always booked out! Argh! Well, not anymore!
After recently joining Virgin Active gym in Sydney, Australia I quickly realised that all the good classes were getting booked out up to a week in advance! So I wrote a script which will scrape the schedule minutes after it is released and book classes which you can pre-define according to the day of the week, the time of the day, and the class names.
The script and instructions on how to install and use it is available here: https://github.com/Aristocles/Gym_Booker

Very cool! I’m not sure how to run this on my Windows machine, so as part of my desire to learn to code I’m going to try and create a Python version.

Great idea! I prefer Python over Perl, but at the time my Perl was stronger and the script was supposed to be short. So writing it in Perl was easier.
