Welcome Letter

Dear New Member/Returning Member,

I was pleased as punch to see you this weekend.  Almost two weeks in and you are still dedicated to getting fit.  That’s great and I hope you continue to keep up the good work and if you have any questions, I’d be happy to answer them per your request.  One thing that I wish to ask you, and please don’t be offended as I am curious. Why is that you get on the gym floor with your earbuds/headphones and SING, RAP AND TALK ON THE PHONE at the top of your lungs?

I see you over there working those abs, good job but I HEARD you before I entered.  Though you think you may sound like Luther, it comes across like scratching a chalkboard with fingernails. Though you think your flow is somewhat akin to that of Nas, you sound more like flock of geese wailing.  This time and only this time will I offer you this unsolicited word of truth:

Ain’t nobody in this gym here for your loud a** non-singing, non-rhyming, telling everybody’s business on your phone conversation self.  We are here to workout.  You are too right?  Of course you are, so focus on your set, and not your song. Your body and the entire gym will thank you for that.

Signed,

An aspiring FIT Person and Fellow Member of the local gym

P.S. dancing however, is allowed
