Mora Reinka is a woman from Connecticut who was left horrified after she received a shocking email from a gym. The gym, apparently, shamed their members to get in better shape for the summer.
Mora received an email from Anytime Fitness in Manchester with the subject Be comfortable in your skin this summer.
The email, however, left her feeling anything but comfortable, as it asked her to grab the excess she has on her waist and told her that it was fat.
The letter starts innocent and asks members to think of the warm days of summer ahead at the beach, but then…
Mora Reinke left the Anytime Fitness gym two years ago, and she posted a screenshot of the email on Twitter. She wrote in the tweet that she’s horrified by the promotional email, and she doesn’t even know where to begin.
The tweet received a lot of attention, and Mark Daly, the gym’s national media director, reached out to Reinke:
It has been confirmed by Daly that the email was sent by the owner of the Manchester gym, Shawn Pyron.
Pyron told Yahoo Lifestyle that he now realizes the email was not funny and it actually offended many people, and he said that he’s very sorry about the promotional message he sent to Ms. Reinka and other former members of their gym.
