Source – One gym member spent too much time talking and not enough time trotting on the treadmills and got her membership revoked, according to the club’s manager. Tina Santoro Asmar says that her membership to Planet Fitness was revoked after the gym manager found her chatting on her mobile phone, going against the gym’s strict no-cell phone policy. However, there are around 10 signs telling members not to use their phones unless they are in designated areas. The Boston Herald spoke to Asmar, who claims that the manager of the chain in Dedham, Massachusetts violated the gym’s ‘no gymtimidation’ philosophy by yelling at her in front of other patrons. Asmar said that the gym’s general manager was ‘enraged’ when he told her she needed to leave the workout area because she was on her phone. The 49-year-old said she told the manager she would leave in a minute because her iPad was plugged into the exercise equipment. But the manager responded with ‘threatening’ behavior, she said, and warned the woman that he would cancel her membership if she didn’t leave the elliptical. ‘This is a member that’s had repeated issues and incidents with cell phone use,’ Brian Kablik told the paper. ‘Her reaction…was extremely unprofessional and rude and dismissive.’ Asmar said that she only wants an apology from the gym and isn’t looking for anything more.

 

Only a chick could blatantly break the rules of an establishment on a repeating basis and then turn things around and act like the victim. She wants an apology? For what? I read this story like six times looking for the part where the gym did something wrong. So she keeps talking on her cell phone in front of signs that say no cell phones, then they finally get fed up and kick her out? Sounds fine to me. But no, she’s upset because they yelled at her. Awwww poor thing. Did the big mean man yell at you and hurt your little feelings? Psshh. Quit gabbing away on your phone when you’re not supposed to. Pretty simple stuff. Literally the only problem here is you. Really just typical female behavior. Like the laws of society don’t apply to them or something.

PS – If you bring an iPad with you to the gym then you should be immediately kicked out on principle.

PPS – She might be an attention hungry idiot but for a 49 year old she sure is making my pants feel tighter.
