Planet Fitness: why don’t you just ban fitness?
Got this image emailed to me today. It shows on Planet Fitness company letterhead from the club at 146 South Main Street in Milford Massachusetts that “Ownership” has banned the following:
- Jumping Rope
- T-bar Rows
They claim its because of insurance policy. I find this hard to believe, let alone stomach.
What is this world coming to? Just to make sure this is real, i searched the web. Looks like some gyms started this back in 2011.
Why don’t they just put the pizza maker in the gym, next to the beer keg? Put a TV in there and i might join, I could get a set of triceps kickbacks in during commercial breaks.
Want some other good tidbits of info? Check this out about the Paleo Diet
FRANKFURT- In a rare display of professional consensus, an international consortium of anthropologists, archaeologists, and molecular biologists have formally released an exasperated sigh over the popularity of the so-called “Paleo Diet” during a two-day conference dedicated to the topic.
Dr. Britta Hoyes, who planned this little get together summed up at the end:
When asked what she would tell people who wished to pursue a true paleolithic diet, Dr. Hoyes laughed harshly before replying. ”You really want to be paleo? Then don’t buy anything from a store. Gather and kill what you need to eat. Wild grasses and tubers, acorns, gophers, crickets- They all provide a lot of nutrition. You’ll spend a lot of energy gathering the stuff, of course, and you’re going to be hungry, but that’ll help you maintain that lean physique you’re after. And hunting down the neighbor’s cats for dinner because you’ve already eaten your way through the local squirrel population will probably give you all the exercise you’ll ever need.”
