Former NFL Punter Gets Booted from Gym for Grunting

June 2, 2016 at 11:42 am by Terez in New York Giants

So I have trained at well over 1,000 gyms all over the world. Not 1 time have I ever been approached and asked to “tone it down”… _ Today I was unceremoniously kicked out of @planetfitness for excessive breathing/grunting. _ A gym should be a place that encourages, motivates, and inspires you to build the best version of yourself possible. Not a place that has a built in ?Siren? the manager activates when someone is working hard and breathes heavily. _ I’m embarrassed to say I paid $20 to this establishment. I’m fortunate to be an overly confident person. Can you imagine how embarrassing this would be to someone trying hard to change their image through hard work and they let a more than quiet breath out. _ The gym can already be a very intimidating place, clients don’t need to worry about being completely humiliated for working hard. – THIS IS SAD AND IT NEEDS TO STOP!!! I’m asking everyone to go to @PlanetFitness on IG and Twitter page and share your thoughts. _ I live this life and share my journey in fitness to inspire, encourage, and motivate others. It seems #PlanetFitness has an alternative agenda. IT MUST STOP!!!!!! #BoyCottPlanetFitness #FPlanetFitness2x – You can see the rest of this unfortunate experience on my ?SNAPCHAT?

There seems to be a lot going on with grunting lately. Just the other day tennis player Robin Haase lost a point for mocking his opponent’s grunt, and last week former Giants punter Steve Weatherford got booted from his gym for grunting too loud during his workouts. What’s going on these days, last time I checked Grunting was completely legal.-TO
