Workout 128

Today members of the Loop Bally club were greeted by a whiteboard in the lobby announcing a new policy. Starting June 1, everyone must register for electronic bill pay. We’re not sure why this is required, or even if it’s legal to mandate members give up a credit card number. It seems particularly odd for members on a month-to-month plan. Guess the receptionists are too busy selling supplements and Bally Soy Protein Bars® to handle people paying their membership fees at the club cash register.

Enjoy your workout.
