Can I speak with a manager?
I met with “Colin”. Tell me something Colin, “is it your goal to provide every customer with a clean and safe environment to exercise?” “Yes.” “Great”, I said, “let me show you something. Here is a bench press station. Show the collars at this station.” Colin muttered something along the lines of “Um.” So, I showed him three more bench press stations. No collars. I showed him a decline station, two incline stations, an overhead press station and more. No collars.
“Colin, I’ve scoured this entire gym and out of 13 stations that need collars exactly two have them. Does this in your opinion exceed customer expectations for safety?” Busted.
To Colin’s credit, he took time to explain to me the policy that no gym bags are allowed on the gym floor. Reason being, collars, pins, carabeaners, and even plates tend to disappear. They have a budget and will be reordering.
Devour your prey raptors!
