Remember the days when music videos were full of people... with their clothes on? They got all creative and colourful and looked amazing. Hats on backwards, leg warmers under the blazing hot lights of the studio, puffer jackets filled with attitude.
No? Then I'm about to sound very very old to you. But for the rest of you, especially the sisters that frequent gyms, this will make a whole lot of sense. The following is a letter I wrote to the gym I go to, which by the way, is actually a nice gym for the most part. This is why I have left the name out. Do you have this situation going on at your gym too?!
I'm already a member at _________________. I really like going there, it's convenient, good equipment and friendly.
I do however have a slight problem though with the music videos on the screens though. Has anyone else brought this up before? Do you know how many of those videos are near naked/naked girls that don't do a lot for your female clients who are already struggling to come to the gym because of body issues? I'm not referring to me, my body works just fine so I'm happy with that. But it's a huge issue for many women and this is part of the reason why.
It is annoying. Have you ever seen the video where the guy is scouting the club for a wasted girl, finds one that is taking drugs and takes her home? Gross.
I do realise that these videos would go unnoticed by most - but us ladies are noticing them. I can't stand them. Maybe it's time for a video cull? Take out the totally naked ones? If you took out the partially nude ones as well you'd have none left.
Thanks for your time and once again, I enjoy most aspects of the gym, but Madonna and Britney Spears doing whatever the hell they are doing is not one of them.
I'm interested to see what the rest of you think? ..
