Workout 31

rules_regs
Grabbed a copy of Bally Total Fitness® Rules & Regulations from the display rack in the lobby. While Bally is slick with its design work for employee gear, club signage, Bally TV and promotions, this black-and-white document looks like it was printed from somebody’s desktop computer. That aside, the legal mandates contained within are crazy – mostly because no one is following any of them. For example:

NO SMOKING / GUM CHEWING
In the interest of providing a healthy and safe environment for our members and guests, all of our clubs adhere to a NO SMOKING / NO GUM CHEWING policy. The use of any type of tobacco products, including smokeless tobacco, within the club is prohibited.

Um, personal trainers are routinely chewing away as if they’re the love children of Bazooka Joe and the Doublemint Twins. Plus, the men’s locker room floor features as many wads of gum as discarded Band-Aids.

Enjoy your workout.
