But…THEY’RE Hot!

I watched this commercial earlier that was linked to a site posting the news that Planet Fitness was in the process of removing squat racks from their gyms because ONE customer at another gym was intimidated by it. Meh. Who cares what Planet Fitness does other than be very purply and handing out free pizza and cupcakes. I like free pizza and free cupcakes so I can’t really throw stones. Ya ya ya, we all know they’re useless to a person who trains. Blah blah blah.

But then I noticed something kinda funny at the end of the commercial making fun of girls with seemingly “hot” bodies. Ummmmm, the two girls on the Elliptical’s???? They have ‘hot’ bodies. Huh? Wouldn’t THAT seem intimidating to the average sized fake customer trying to look as homely as possible? Wouldn’t THAT seem to go directly AGAINST Planet Purple’s message? I’m just so confused?!

It begs the question…if Planet Purple is FOR the scared fatties…why don’t they SHOW the scared fatties eating the free pizza instead of cute little pony tail girls on the commercial? Why bother showing the hotties who don’t eat free pizza? That’s intimidating to me…OUT with the pony tailed girls!!

Things that make you go, hmmmmmm.

Nobody can tell what I suffer! But it is always so. Those who do not complain are never pitied.

About tosabarbell

For training opportunities at tosabarbell, call or text Juli at 320-296-9313. e-mail to jep6095@gmail.com At tosabarbell, I build relationships cultivated in a strength and learning environment. There is no 12 week magic pill program to strength but rather a lifetime commitment to be the very best and most useful human you can be. tosabarbell is a private, home grown gym with three lifting platforms; squat rack; prowlers; throwing implements; bars, bumpers and everything else needed for an effective strength and conditioning program. Straightforward barbell programming including the Olympic lifts; sound (read: not fancy bullshit) diet advance for weight gain or loss; and strong coaching will ensure you will meet your goals such as becoming stronger, more explosive, and better conditioned. I have been coaching teams and athletes for over 30 years. I grew up participating in various sports at various levels but was always drawn to those that require strength training. I have multiple local, national, and world records in the sports of Weightlifting and Highland Games Heavy Events as well as a combined total of 5 World Championships. My 5 years of training and coaching under Mark Rippetoe provided a wide range of influence from some of the top strength & conditioning and throwing coaches in the country. I will strongly encourage tosabarbell athletes to compete (and prepare you to do so.) However, tosabarbell is also for those who wish to be stronger and go through life feeling better. Matt WanAt is a retired Professional Strongman who competed frequently with Strongman Champions League in Europe. He played a year of D1 football with Iowa before concentrating on his Chemical Engineering degree in Iowa City. He is a native of Wauwatosa and still remains a staunch supporter of Tosa East. This blog will be a mixture of strength notes, coaching and nutrition tips, personal shit; bacon delicacies, and a whole lot of fun.
