The public loves Gwyneth Paltrow, but it doesn’t seem to like the costly price tag of her New York City gym. Since Paltrow has hit the gym with Madonna and celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson, she set her sites on creating a state of the art gym. However, people aren’t breaking down the door to sign up…
GWYNETH Paltrow is struggling to sign up members for her new gym.
The Iron Man star has teamed up with her personal trainer Tracy Anderson to run the fitness centre in New York’s TriBeCa district.
However, they are so desperate for customers, staff have been cold-calling people inviting them in for a visit.
One person who was contacted said: “It’s ridiculous. Membership is like $4,500 to join and then hundreds of dollars a month. Who can afford that right now?”
The gym is supposed to open later this year (source).
The rich didn’t get rich by spending a ridiculous amount on gym memberships! So what makes her think that people are willing to shell out this kind of money during a hard time in our economy? I have a feeling that the only people paying this amount are rich housewives that want to say they workout with Gwyneth Paltrow?
