There taking it out on Friday, which is tomorrow.
I already asked if I could have/or buy it from the collage if it was being discontinued earlier today. I didnt email the woman I was talking to, instead i emailed the gym owner but lone behold its the same cunt that replied.
Heres the email for your viewing pleasure:
My name is David and I am a post grad student at this collage and a paying member of your gym.
I was told yesterday that the only power rack in the weight room was being removed on Friday to be replaced by a smith machine for "safety" reasons.
Ive already spoken to management about how unfair this is too people like me, whose training effort hinges on being able to preform free squats in a safe manor.
After being informed that there was no way for the collage gym to etain the power rack I wanted to email you and ask if it was possible for me to take it off your hands?
I have reviewed the going price online and would be more than willing to buy it from you as it will no longer be in use.
I look forward to your reply
And here is the reply:
This is Yvonne, we spoke in length about this subject earlier today.
After seeing your request I felt that I should email you personally to inform you that we cannot allow you to take ownership over the power rack.
As free squatting is extremely dangerous, especially for someone of your age we cannot in good concise honer your request.
The reason we are replacing the power rack is to ensure those squatting without supervision are completely safe, if we were to allow you to procure the power rack you would undoubtedly hurt yourself and we cannot allow that.
A smith machine is a perfectly equal piece of equipment and I am confident that if you use it for a week or so you will come to love it for squatting.
If you have any more quires, please direct them to me and not the owner as I am the gym manager and supervise the floor.
I would also like your parents to email me so I could discuss this with them as you have pointed out that we are at fault in recommending a smith machine for safe squatting and I wish to rectify this.
Thank you for the email and I look forward to see you training.
Fuck guys, I dont even know what to say. She literally has me by the balls as A) Im a paying customer and B) if I do involve my parents you can be dam sure they will agree with the professional and not the 19 year old "know it all".
Seriously, fuck this shit.
