A Boston woman has to find a new place to work out, after her gym revoked her membership for talking on her phone.

According to The Boston Herald, Tina Santoro Asmar took an unexpected call from her doctor while she was on the elliptical. She says while she was talking, she was approached by a manager who told her to get off the phone or risk losing her membership.

“The Planet Fitness manager’s reaction was extremely aggressive and thretening.,” Asmar said. “It scared me. No one deserves to be spoken to in this manner. I spent two days trying to get in touch with corporate with no response.”

Club co-owner Brian Kablik told The Boston Herald that Asmar was the one acting belligerent.

“This is a member that’s had repeated issues and incidents with cell phone use,” Kablik said.

Planet Fitness is known for having a strict no cell phone rule in their workout areas.
