Walking past the new LA Fitness on Sundays and evenings, we can’t help but notice the place does not appear to be packed. The economy has certainly affected consumer decisions, with people avoiding premium products and services. Instead, brands like McDonald’s and Wal-Mart enjoy record profits. Bally, on the other hand, is a low-price option that makes regular visits to bankruptcy court. Which perhaps indicates that cheapness doesn’t negate indifferent staffers, crumbling facilities and locker rooms that are filthy on a host of levels.
Enjoy your workout.
