It is cool to praise something or someplace if it is true but exaggerating lies to increase popularity is not okay. Since I had put on too much weight, I was advised by my doctor to join a fitness center to lose weight. I did not want to but since I was getting too fat, I decided to go for it. I did not want to be careless and therefore took time to find a proper gym. After many search results later, I came across Epic Fitness which seemed to be a good place. Although their yearly rate was high, I did not want to compromise and hence went for it.
I did not opt for a personal trainer as it would have costed more. The general trainer seemed fine at first. As it turns out, he had anger management issues. As I was not used to working out, it became tough for me to keep up with consistency. The trainer mocked for being a complete pussy. It was demoralizing for me to listen to such words but I could not do anything. The staff members found it funny looking at me while I struggled in the gym. After the workout when I went to the bathroom, I saw that all the drains were clogged. There was also a foul smell in the air. I did not want to give up on my dream of becoming fitter and so I ignored the incidents.
One day while I was doing a bench press, I was told by the trainer to do one set of ten presses after completion, he told me to do another ten and when I could not do it, he mocked me in front of the entire class. On its website, it was written that the trainers are certified and friendly. The place was the worst place I had ever been to. After each passing day, the weights that I lifted kept on increasing.
Although I felt no difference, the trainer insisted that I had indeed improved. I did not have the energy to do anything after I returned home. One day, while I was bullied by a senior boy, the trainer stood at the corner and watched without coming in to stop the bully. To worsen the condition, he agreed with the bully who called me by names and teased me of being weak. I could not take it anymore. I quit that damned place they call ‘gym’. As the name suggests, it is not epic at all. A place where trainers don’t have the compassion to motivate or at least talk nicely to their students should be taken down. I filed a complaint against the trainer stating how an unprofessional like him trains students. He should be not be allowed to teach as it would not only tarnish the image of the place but also ruin the morals of the students.
