“I was really excited to have him come in and lift and see the changes in his body that I saw in mine,” the mom said. “Through lifting weights and just working out, I gained a lot of confidence.” The mother and son began to work out together at LA Fitness. Mason enjoyed it and said, “It was a good like, bonding time for me and my mom.” source

The two continued their workouts together with no issue until last week. Grubb recounted, “One of the trainers approached me and asked me what I was doing. I told her I was working out with my son.” Mason added, “We were just working out and she came and like she helped me with my form and stuff, and that’s basically all.”

“He said, ‘Well, the notes here say that you were training people here and we have trainers that you know our customers pay.’” While gym policies prohibiting outside trainers are not unusual, the Florida mother maintains that she and her son were working out as a family, not as a trainer and client.

“I think it’s pretty ridiculous that they would take her membership away,” Mason said. The perplexed Grubb laughed at what she agreed was an absurd situation saying, “It being my son and we’re working out together. I just, it’s insane, like it’s just, it’s insane.”

Grubb recently paid her membership in full and said she has still not received a refund from LA Fitness.

When WTVT asked the location’s management for comment they were directed to LA Fitness corporate. However, multiple attempts to contact corporate public relations were unanswered.

    That what happens when you go to LA Fitness!

    The trainer did not even ask who the person is that you are working out with? They are so money hungry! I think the mom should get a good lawyer like Gloria Allred. All Allred has to do is announce a new conference and the international media would all be their. And then she would present her client case of in glowing fashion; it would make it to London – their headquarters and be on the BBC, all the Hollywood gossip shows, talk shows and print media worldwide. It would cost LA Fitness hundreds of millions in negative advertising and new membership recruiting.
