NJ gym owner giving free memberships to those who don’t get vaccinated


BELLMAWR, N.J. (WNCN) — In light of popular doughnut shop Krispy Kreme offering free doughnuts to those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine, one gym owner is doing the opposite.

Ian Smith, who says he is the co-owner of The Atilis Gym, located in Bellmawr, New Jersey had a different proposal — free memberships for everybody who has not been vaccinated.

Smith had this to say on Twitter:

Twitter users didn’t waste time commenting on Smith’s proposal with mixed reactions.

Some slammed Smith’s decision.

“Yeah thanks for supporting Bellmawar’s most famous killer,” one Twitter user replied.

Others were happy to see such a proposal and shot back at everyone who disagreed.

“Why all the hatred??? Everyone is welcome to have their own opinions,” another user said.

Smith says he believes in health “the real way”, which as he puts it includes exercise, a good diet, and an environment to destress.
