More sweating – less talking.

A Boston woman is angry after being kicked out of her gym for talking on her cell phone.  Tina Santoro Asmar claims she got an urgent call from her doctor while working out on a Planet Fitness elliptical machine in Dedham last Thursday, according to the Boston Herald.

The gym’s manager approached the woman to point out the “no cell phones” sign posted all over the facility.

When told to hang up – she refused, and became hostile, according to management.  Asmar, however, said it was the manager who was “very threatening.”

The ‘no cell phone’ policy is strictly enforced to prevent perverts from snapping photos inside the “judgement-free zone” while others work out.  Asmar also claimed she couldn’t leave the workout room because she had her iPad plugged into the machine she was using.
