Sounds like the character from Dodgeball


"Here at Globo Gym we understand that ugliness and fatness are genetic disorders, like baldness or necrophilia, and it's your fault if you don't hate yourself enough to do something about it."

The reasons cited for legal action are ridiculous, but the whole attitude of the company is that of an arrogant meathead.

I'm being zen about it now, as I assume the people who approve of their unpleasant attitudes will go to the gym so they are all together in one place, away from decent people. Maybe they'll pull a muscle or two.
You really do seem to hate this guy with a passion even though, and correct me if I am wrong, you've never even met him....

I have met him several times and can tell you that you are waaaay off the mark with your comments, however, it seems like you have hard on for him so carry on with your character assassination, which by the way is also a crime in the UAE.

The irony is that liberals espouse giving everyone a voice and then are shocked and offended when those voices do not tally with their own opinions

Some people are not important enough to 'hate witha passion'. You must have experienced that.

I haven't seen these ads but they don't sound great.

Still, what I do despise is circuit factory wankers giving it stacks non stop when you meet them, even if you don't know them that well. I thought my very placid, laid back mrs was going to hit a woman who asked her not to drink red bull near her because "she feels sick from the smell of all the chemicals".

If that's the average participant at their gym then ****ing let them have it, I would rather they spent their time there than in the public domain.

I love Circuit Factory. Most of their advertising is great, even the fattist stuff for which they get a lot of stick. It makes a refreshing change from all the 'Love Your Curves' bullshit.

And I don't mind Red Bull if it has vodka in it

I would have told the bitch to move if she didn't like it... and that I felt sick from the smell of her breath

I wasn't particularly polite after I'd heard some of this stuff, but I'm a believer in letting her stick up for herself if she's annoyed by something.

Disclaimer time: I've got pals who go there and love it and get what they need / want from it. Therefore I'm certain not everyone is a complete plank.

I am not saying that because she is from CF.....I would say that to anybody who commented on something that I was drinking.

Circuit Factory have just sent round an email offering a free week of traning to everybody. This was the covering note:

"We hope this free week of training will mend hearts and bring peace to the families affected by our mesmeric stupidity. With abundant love x"

Most agree that it's offensive. This issue is whether calling the police/authorities is warranted.

I think not using his gym is the best thing I can do to hurt the twat...not that I use gyms - haven't found one with a good bar and ashtrays built into the machines.
