After Krispy Kreme announced it’s offering a free donut to those who get the COVID-19 vaccine, one gym owner from New Jersey put his own spin on the incentivized push.
Ian Smith, the owner of The Atilis Gym, out of Bellmawr, New Jersey, took to Twitter to say he’s offering free gym memberships to those who don’t get the vaccine.
In the viral tweet, Smith wrote, “We believe in health - the real way - exercise, good diet, plenty of vitamin D, zinc, and an environment to destress.”
In light of @krispykreme giving free donuts for receiving the CVD shot, here at @TheAtilisGym we are giving out free memberships to all who don’t get vaccinated. We believe in health - the real way - exercise, good diet, plenty of Vitamin D, Zinc, and an environment to destress.— Ian Smith (@iansmithfitness) March 23, 2021
Since posting the tweet on Tuesday, Smith said he received a lot of hate mail as of Thursday morning.
Got a lot of hate mail today. Did I say something wrong?— Ian Smith (@iansmithfitness) March 25, 2021
