Gym buddy

Bitches.

Every year the gym sends me a letter and every year that letter it says "thank you for being a member. Fuck you, we're going to increase the sub."

It doesn't necessarily say it like that though. Well sort of.

Anyway, part of this letter always includes a complimentary pass which allows me to invite a friend to train at my gym.

Since I do not have a single friend, the pass is in danger of going to waste. But.

If you live in London and are up for the challenge here it is...

The challenge is you have to come to my gym for the day (or part of) and then write about your various experiences of flirting with the other boys, tossing one off in the showers (if you're unlucky) and that's about it.

You don't need a blog to do this because I'm going to post the story here. If you do have a blog and wanna post it then fine.

Does anyone want to come to my gym?

There are some rules to this challenge and here they are:
1/ I don't really want to work out with you - this is an opportunity for you to become beautiful.
2/ The gym is in North London - I know this isn't exactly a rule but I'm just saying.
3/ Er...
4/ That's the end of the rules.

Please send me an e-mail amnotblog AT gmail.com or leave a comment. I think it's first come-first served etc.

I won't be applying for your pass as its a 100 miles out of the way for me; and I would have to give Rhydian a slap if he still goes down there.

I did want to note for the benefit of your readers who your post might incite to go joining gyms in the new year - dont go doing it on the 1st of January - wait till later in the month when not as many people have joined as they hoped, targets haven't been met and they are a lot more flexible on prices.

Fleets: Thanks for this valuable consumer advice and you're right. Wait until the gyms start panicking and then they'll pull the prices down.
You're not just a pretty face you know...

It's a little out of my way, but thanks for the offer.

Bobby Cox said...

Steven: That's a pity...

Mine just did the same only without the free pass. Who's ever swayed by these though? Every time I'm at a new gym I come out angry. I spend most of the time wandering the place looking for equipment they don't have, unimpressed by attendees. Then I'm inevitably followed around by an employee who wants to be my friend because I started asking them where stuff is.

Earlier today I received an email from my gym thanking me being a customer and to wait for another email later for a free smoothie.

So here's the deal Bobby. If you fly across the pond, I'll pay your one day pass to the gym and you can have my free smoothie.

My gym didn't!

"GREAT NEWS
Members will be pleased to hear that the club has reduced all their membership subscriptions (including the December direct debit collection) to reflect the reduction in VAT to 15%. In addition, all subscriptions will be frozen at their current rate until June 09."

Given that it's Reebok in C Wharf - the "poor" bankers don't any money...

I really want come to your gym

Oliver said...

Ooo gee, tempting, but I don't think I'd have the motivation to go too far North London or even go to the gym during the New Year.

And just to brag, my gym hasn't put my membership up since I joined them. Good news since it has more than doubled over the past few years.

Bobby Cox said...

Ja: If you came to my gym you would angry leave angry that you were having to leave. And the only reason I'd follow you is to learn...

Tim: I am going to hold you to that free smoothie you know. I am a sucker for a freebie. Especially one you don't have to pay for.

Kail: Haha - do you know that one of my colleagues goes to the gym and was moaning that it's so expensive. Her husband used to work at Lehman's so I think her moaning was to be taken in a far larger context really. Apparerently it's bloody £90 a month! God - are you rich? If so, will you marry me?
Thanks x (just incase)

Alfred! You can visit any time you like! ;-)

Oliver: It's not that far north!

Oliver said...

Anything outside of Zone 1 is dead to me, and I imagine beyond the Watford gap as a wasteland filled with warring tribes of canibals.

Just how far north are we talking? Or maybe I should just email you?
