If you’ve ever had the pleasure of entering a contractual agreement with a gym, you’ll know that ending that agreement can be a difficult task.
After moving out of state, Redditor Mastrrbasser needed to cancel his membership to Planet Fitness. But because Planet Fitness really doesn’t want you to cancel your membership, they make it as difficult as possible, and required the man to write a certified letter.
So that’s exactly what he did, except he framed the whole thing like a breakup letter.
“Certain events in my life have put me in a different place, and while it was one of the more taxing decisions I’ve made as of late, it is the right one,” he wrote, adding that the purpose of the letter is to “end my relationship with Planet Fitness.”
Like many breakups, he placed the blame on himself.
“I know I’ve been distant,” he wrote. “But it’s because I’ve changed. I have different needs now, and to be frank … you really haven’t changed at all.”
The letter goes on to say that Mastrrbasser now has a new exercise facility, and although he still loves Planet Fitness, it’s more of a friend type of situation.
But the nostalgia is still there.
“I still think fondly of you, and the time we spent together as I drive by one of your many locations,” the letter reads. Sometimes, when I’m alone, I even throw on one of my old ‘power-pop workout’ playlists and feel the rush of our past course through me as if we were still one, holding hands with your elliptical machine, and gingerly brushing my sweaty bangs out of my face as I huff and puff in a tumultuous vortex of sweat and endorphins.”
Honestly, the whole thing is really great.
