Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

LA Fitness claims they are providing a Healthy Life Style but they run ads for a Online Gambling Casino every 1/2 hour at their Gyms in New Jersey. It is blasted on their Speakers througout the Gym and displayed on Video  throughout the gym.

I guess it is not enough that you are paying your monthly dues to come to a gym. The would rather w***e themselves out by trying to get their members addicted to Online Gambling.

Gambling is not an Unhealthy lifestyle..

AUTHOR: Robert - (USA)

Gambling itself is NOT "unhealthy". 

Many people who are very concerned about health gamble.  Whether it be in a Casino, at the local Horse Track, OnLine, or even buying a Lottery ticket.  That is all a form of Gambling.

You can be against it on a moral basis, but that does not make it "unhealthy".  Now, of course if they gamble to excess it could affect their health and other things.  But the reality is if you do anything to excess it could have an adverse affect on your health. 

In fact if you really want to get down to a "health".  You could make arguments that Online gambling is the healthiest as you can do it in the privacy of your own home and don't have to worry about the smoke filled casinos or tracks, and avoid the danger of driving to the location.

By the way...once every 1/2 hour is not really considered "shoving it down their throats" and forcing them to go gamble.
