Workout 38

There’s a certain Bally member whose primary goal is apparently not improved fitness. When we first joined the club, we’d regularly spot this dude. However, he was rarely working out. He was usually chilling in the locker room or South Loop TV room. The man has a unique look – like an aged character from an original Run-DMC video, complete with big-framed glasses and tinted lenses. Anyway, this guy’s hustle involves selling little vials of fragrances and pirate DVDs. He’ll even show you a homemade list of all the available movie titles. Of course, this behavior technically violates the Bally Total Fitness® Rules & Regulations, which state the following:

Members or guests shall not conduct, purchase or subscribe to any commercial business or activity on club premises or solicit other members or guests for any reason without the club’s prior written consent.

Whatever. This dude’s not hurting anyone. Besides, his entrepreneurial spirit is less irritating than the personal trainers prostituting themselves for new clients. And the first time we caught the salesman in action, he was displaying his line of merchandise to one of the security guards. He has managed to tone his arms – probably from carrying his plastic sack of products all around the gym. We nicknamed the guy Netflex.

Enjoy your workout.
