Breaking up can be hard to do.
So Reddit user Mastrrbasser decided the best way to end his (contractual) relationship with Planet Fitness gym was by penning a heartfelt note:
“It is with deep regret, and a heavy heart that I write this letter,” wrote the Redditor, who no longer needed his gym membership after moving out of state.
“Certain events in my life have put me in a different place, and while it was one of the more taxing decisions I’ve had to make of late, it is the right one,” he added in the tongue-in-cheek missive, which was shared online Tuesday.
He wrote the letter because “Planet Fitness wouldn’t let me cancel over the phone,” although it’s unclear which of the company’s 1,400-plus locations he frequented. HuffPost has reached out for more information.
He also went down the “it’s not you, it’s me” route with this line:
“I know I’ve been distant, but it’s because I’ve changed. I have different needs now, and to be frank… you really haven’t changed at all.”
There was a fair bit of nostalgia, too:
“I still think fondly of you, and the time we spent together as I drive by one of your many locations. 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.”
But if Planet Fitness thought it still had a chance of fixing the relationship, he delivered a killer blow with the postscript declaring that his wife “also needs to cancel her membership.”
