Who started this meme? What is their purpose?
>What is their purpose?
To freak you autists out
the only thing fake about the receptionists where I live is their dyed blonde hair. they're all tight-bodied little yoga teens with perky B or C cups who are almost always found in workout clothes, yoga pants, etc., because they actually use said gym and run classes and shit like that.
Why is this bitch so smug? What does she know that I don't?
>scanning my membership card so I can use the gym
>say "gym please"
>given my wristband
>"have a good workout, anon!"
>"y-you t- thank you"
>paranoid entire workout about how she knew my name
Make it stop
>they have a system that show your picture to the receptionist every time you swipe your card
>go everyday at the same time, without a fault
>"sir, sir, sir!!! can you please come back?!?!?"
>"you are not the one in this picture"
>old picture, kinda of fat, big hair and big asymmetrical beard
>present in shape, short undercut hair and two days beard
>girl looks at me for 5 seconds
>recognizes her mistake
>Feel like a champ, my workouts are given results overtime
Overall a great experience with them, they doesn't care about train and doesn't interfere with my exercises, always help me with any issues in the gym.
>MFW I forget to tip the gym receptionist and she 'forgets' to properly secure the cage for my falcon
Hessian was perched at the upstairs pullup bar before somebody notified me
>gym receptionist stories
>9.5/10 powerQT with unreal body working counter
>walk in with my typical blank expression, absent mindedly trying to get past the qt (and thus, the reminder of the pain of loneliness) and get on with my sesh
>"hi!" *blasts me with 10,000megawatt smile*
thinking to myself "please dont, youre killing me"
>"dont look so disappointed!!" :D
>mumble something autistic
>new manager is a twiggy QT
>2nd in line to get scanned for check-in, 3rd in line is a 9/10 ive seen a few times but has a BF that im like 65% sure is tomas tatar from the red wings
>my turn now, hand barcode tab on my keys to manager chick
>slip out of my hands to the floor
"...really" as i pick em up
>9/10 behind me giggles
>feel like I actually turned a bad thing into a good thing
>drop them again on the floor
>"wow good god wth"
>pick them up, get them over the counter, drop them a third fucking time before manager girl can get a hand under them
>im at a loss, say something about not dipping my keys in butter before coming to the gym
im sure there are more. god im hopeless.
>tries to scan in
>adjust card position and try again
>still no beep
>"Excuse me, would you like me to-"
>"N-no it's fine. Almost got it"
>mfw I don't got it
>stand there with a line behind me and try 2 more times before the machine beeps
>everyone just walks past receptionists and never show gym membership card to them
>there's a sign that says 'must present membership card to reception' as you walk in
>tfw not sure whether im supposed to show my membership card or not
>tfw sometimes when receptionists are busy talking to somebody i end up standing there waiting like a retard for 3 minutes as other members just walk on in ignoring the sign
pretty sure everybody thinks im autistic
In my gym they remindo you if your membership is expering, they take payment when you have to pay said membership, sell water bottles and towels. Im sure they do other things se dont realize
omg tipping the receptionist
what kind of service do they actually provide? they are literally useless and can be replaced with a machine
do you amerikuks tip the cleaning lady in the locker/shower area? that would actually make more sense
I go to a small familial gym. Owner is the receptionist but there are max 100 people that signed up so he rarely attend the desk.
Cleanest gym ever. Everyone cleans up after they work out and we sometimes help him maintaining machines and such
I had just finished doing bis and tris and had a mad pump and as i was leaving i decided to try to hit on this qt white asian one and got shut down so hard and then she started laughing with the other female receptionist and i left so quickly with my tail between my legs now im going to cry myself to sleep :(
It's taking off in the UK now, when I first joined my current gym all of the staff were rude as fuck to begin with. Even the cleaners used to give me shit for wearing my hat indoors.
Then I noticed on the board in reception they have a tipping policy, nothing too ridiculous, I can get away with tipping once every few days rather than every time I go, but the staff are super helpful and friendly now.
My gym is full of lazy assholes, so the receptionists main job seems to be reracking weights and organizing the anarchy everyone leaves behind.
Idk why I still pay for my gym membership, the mon-fri receptionist knows me and just waves me in without bothering to scan my key fob.
I wish my gym was like this. I shit you not my gym has 4 gay male receptionists workign there and 2 or 3 average women at best. Would love to see some qt3.14s
you know they see it on their computer when putting your checking you in right? my gym even makes photos of everyone so only you can use your card and can get in even when you forget it
My gym receptionist is incredibly fat. Is the brother of one of the trainers. You have to give him your inscription card that is card shelf inside the gym. He says hi, and then watches shit in his Ipad.
''don't even lift'' pretty much describes 90% of pts i've seen. i wonder what their purpose is though. i mean, why choose a career in the fitness industry if you're not passionate about it? and they're mostly prettybois too. looking like they were bred in some lab like Disneyland employees.
and i get that some companies won't hire people if they look too swole becaus muh intimidation but then why are there any PTs that actually lift at all?
>sat in the reception at my old job
>"have a nice weekend sir!"
It was a Tuesday. I did see him stop slightly outside on the parking lot.
i actually have two PT qualifications (planning to open a gym some day but not working in the fitness industry atm) and the licence i got actually included mostly scientifically sound knowledge even talking about the disadvantages of machine training and the like. but the reason why they still push their gimmicky exercise bullshit into their licenses is because they're financed by some of those people.
