I decided that since I am going to be in this town until I find a job that I should probably find a gym worth attending. I registered for a free two week pass to 24 Hour Fitness online, and 43 minutes later, I received a call from one of their sales representatives.
First of all, I thought it was weird that they even called me. It’s a gym. Why? Second of all, his questions caught me off guard. Made it really difficult to come up with a story on the spot. Let’s call my salesman Chris.
Chris: Hello, is this Jayce?
Chris: I’m sorry, is this Jessie?
Chris: This is Chris from 24, I see that you’ve registered with us for a free two weeks. When would you like to come in for a tour of our club?
Me: Wow. I literally just signed up for this. Like 40 minutes ago. You’re quite speedy.
Chris: Oh, yes. I have your papers right in front of me. Tell me, what are your fitness goals?
Me: My fitness goals? Ummm, well I am training to be in weightlifting and bodybuilding competitions, so I’ll need to be using a lot of heavy weights for sure.
Chris: Okay. So, you sound like you know what you’re doing already. When can you come in?
Me: Oh, yeah, of course. I body build all the time. I’ll be doing a lot of two-a-days for these next two weeks, so I’ll be in tomorrow morning around 9 am.
Chris: Oh, okay. Well, I will see you tomorrow morning then, and I’ll give you a tour of our club. And make sure you ask for Chris.
Me: Okay, Chris. Can’t wait to see your club. Bye!
I decided I will not be attending the apparent Globogym. I just want to use some free weights, possibly attend a yoga class or two, and jog. I do not want to be given a tour by a meathead who actually believes that I am going to be doing two-a-days at 24 Hour Fitness on a free two week pass to train for weightlifting competitions.
