The Mean Side of the Gym
Don’t gyms want to have as many members as possible? This would mean the gym is always buzzing and earning a tidy profit. However some gyms prefer not to have so many members.
Instead they want to make the gym look empty so other people will want to go. This is why they often put ‘out of order’ signs on machines. Gym memberships are also really hard to cancel so they are making a lot of money from people who don’t want to attend any more but can’t get out of their contract.
