Oh boy , this girl is fuming! 

I am a very loyal gym goer and my home gym is and will always be GoodLife Fitness but I decided to activate my Y pass a few weeks ago so that when I needed a run I could go. 

Well , this past week they put up fancy shmancy neon signs everywhere with their ” Rules “. One of them being – cardio is limited to < 30 minutes from 8-11am and 4-8pm. Huh? What? This gym is never packed and I have never seen a line up for the cardio , if there was such a line up then yes I would abide by the “time limits”. 

Then this am was the kicker which led my to this mood  

 
I was on the bike this am with the other 5 people in the gym and I received an important business call, I had my ear buds in and I was talking into my phone quietly, when Mr ” 70 year old trainer” comes up and says – ” you can’t be talking on your phone ” I explained my situation and that I’d be off in a sec – Nope – get off the phone. I’m like well you are talking to that other old dude , what’s the difference? The number of people who stand around and “talk ” in that gym is phenomenal. What the fuck is the difference if I’m talking into a portable electronic device asshole. I’m not bothering anyone. I promptly left the gym to head to the crowded change room with the other seniors then threw my membership at the front desk and gave them some honest, heart felt feedback about their facilty – which is basically a Senior Rec Plex! If you aren’t 80 and with a walker you do not matter! 

Here is my biggest issue – I PAY THE SAME AS EVERYONE ELSE , so – why are you not limiting the number of reps/sets  a person  can do in the squat rack? I may have spent too much time on the mat stretching – better limit floor time? 

This is a joke ! 

I am an athlete , training for something. Do Not tell how, when or how long I can train for when I pay the same $$$ as every other member here! 

So it’s safe to say – today I told the Y to KISS MY ASS! You are no longer getting my money, I refuse to support you in the community and I will continue to train at my “Real” gym. 

Thank you for absolutely nothing!
