Quitting the gym isn’t exactly the easiest thing to do in the world.
From contracts to that awkward conversation you need to have with a trainer about the real reason why you’re doing it, they don’t make it a walk in the park.
Reddit user MastrrBasser found out the hard way when he decided to call his gym telling them he would like to break his contract because he was moving to a different city.
However, the gym, called Planet Fitness, insisted that they needed the man to either show up in person or get a certified letter of cancellation.
So MastrrBasser took things into his own hands, by writing a hilarious letter in the style of a breakup note.
- Guys, here’s why picking up at a gym is not OK
- shamed for going to the gym instead of her daughter's assembly
“It is with deep regret, and a heavy heart that I write this letter, but I must come forth with my intentions with sincerity and honesty,” he started the letter.
“Certain events in my life have put me in a different place, and while it was one of the more taxing decisions I’ve had to make of late, it is the right one.
“The purpose of this letter is to end my relationship with Planet Fitness.”
He went on to say that he knows he’s been “distant”, but it’s because he’s “changed”.
“I have different needs now, and to be frank… you really haven’t changed at all,” he wrote.
“You’re still that bulky, purple and yellow building with the tootsie rolls at the counter.
“I don’t want to change you, and it pains me to think that we were once one, but are now separate and in different places.”
The man goes on to explain how he’s moved on to another gym but he doesn’t want his old gym to be “jealous”.
“That’s not the Planet Fitness that I know and love,” he wrote.
“I still love you, but more like a friend at this point.”
However he concluded that “all good things must come to an end” and said living their separate live will be “for the better”.
