I can not believe this gym does not offer discounts for people that are disabled. I guess the owner is all about money instead of helping people. Any gym I went to in the past gave a discount if you was on disability. It was generally only like 5-10 bucks but that's a big deal for people on a fixed income.
Ultimate Fitness owner u should be ashamed!!!

Must be getting a nut check. Physically disabled in need can get it paid for if doctor validates the need. Nuts are another story. Thinking topix helps your case in any way proves which category you belong to. Besides, anyone with a beef over ten dollars a month wouldnt be consistent anyway. If you get a nut check but able to exercise get a jkb or is it to much of a workout for you.

Actually I have a serious disease and has NOTHING to do with mental stability!$10 is alot of money to someone that used to make 2/3's more money. UF doesn't accept a drs order that it is beneficial for me to work out for my health but thank you ignorant people.

Wait! Your mentally stable and can work out? Sorry that makes you a disability fraud. Having a disease and unable to work is two totally different things. Lowlife scam artist. Some disabled can't even walk but find themselves able to work. I'm one. Your a common thief.

Who's place is it to judge one another? Be it the gym or the disabled. If we can't afford to work out at Gym, maybe get dvd's to work out with. Can get creative and exercise at home etc. God bless

So u expect welfare (from us hardworking taxpayers) to pay for ur entertainment too? As a nurse of 26 years i do know that if ur dr felt u really needed it, he would order u physical therapy which is avail n ur home or as an outpatient if socialization is what u really desire...

Yes nurse the dr HAS wrote me orders thank u! AND I do NOT live off welfare! I REALLY hope one day you know someone in my situation so that maybe you will have a little compassion for someone! You do not know my situation, history etc.

I think you idiotfinder have obviously found yourself being that you are the idiot on here, I see you have nothing better to do with your time. Why don't you get a job.

PT and OT can be ordered and insurance can cover it. I believe the point this person is making could be some what of having a "normal" functional life as long as possible until his/her disease process disabilitates this individual. I have many patients who take PT and OT and if their bodies would let them love to go and exercise and also socialize. People are all so quick to judge.

OK, Tell us what (SERIOUS DISEASE) you have but take your time and look it up since it needs to be something where you need a gym because your ABLE to work out and isn't mental yet you are DISABLED when it comes to working. Seems there would be a job typing or something for you. CMON, we are waiting. If you can confirm and validate your condition proving you are disabled but able to work out I will pay for your membership for several months. There's your discount or are you just wanting to bitch. You can order a workout machine for low monthly pymnts that compete with gym memberships. Remember serious disesase has to be something deadly.

That's very true. Id like to also know. There are several disabilitating diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, cerebal palsy,, and many more that could be beneficial for gym membership on top of PT and OT. However, most cardiac issues doesn't deem one disabled. I know a patient with 9 stents, who has had 2 MI's and currently works full time as a factory worker. I took an oath to be a patients advocate however some people do work the system, so ill play the devils advocate and pose the question, what is the disease you have that requires extra other than PT and OT and ill finish up the reminding months for Ur membership the doctor doesn't pay. Sincerely, a RN.

Well I'm a nurse too, and I know mentally disabled need exercise too. Although some may not qualify to work or go to a workshop, they still may be able to exercise. Some of you on here should be ashamed. And Medicaid does not pay for therapy. Everyone can benefit from exercise and socialization. The mentally and physically disabled should not be the focus of criticism, but those out there who can work and don't and live the life of crime.

Thank-you. You have only validated my statement before as this person has already said it isn't a mental or psychological problem and that it is going to kill them. Also nurse 1, Until such a time that they are physically debilitated which isn't the case with someone that can exercise, even people with Ms can keep gainful employment. My questions are only rhetorical since this person has,already said enough to prove they are able to work at something gainful yet chooses to stick with the disabled label for no other reason except the free money which they have also shown an inclination to chase after. Remember they are bitching about 5 dollars a month.

Just do you know, there are some disabilities that can not be seen & the pain is awful each & everyday! Also, there are many of us who worked forever, paid into the system (Long term benefits) so this is NOT free money. It is our money, which I paid from the age of 16 until I became disabled. I am now in my mid fifties. I work part time & it is a struggle everyday, but it gives me a sense of purpose & helps my confidence to stay strong. If I didn't work, I'd feel like I was useless to society but no matter what the disability, a person needs to have self- worth. The only relief I get is from medicines, which I try to avoid unless I just can't handle the pain anymore. My disease is also crippling & permanent, I would not wish this on anyone b/c my quality of life is 1/2 of what it use to be- If a person wants to exercise to help keep their body functioning better & to strengthen the muscles then who are to bash & condemn them? Seriously, try changing places & see how you feel- yes, there are a lot of people who play & use the system ( they are over dramatic & milk it for all they can ) but for some of us it is a struggle everyday. Please don't cast stones @ us, we already have enough to deal with each day. I've been disabled for the past 13 years & it does not improve, it only gets worse- There are days I hate getting up & working & it is only 3 hrs a day, 5 days a week, however I have to pay a very expensive secondary insurance premium so it's a must that I work. I just try to power up my mind to push me to do what I've gotta do to make this $500 a month to pay this bill. Some people don't make much from their checks, so $5-$10 does matter & if they are able to find a place that can help them.... Then that's Great-! May I suggest volunteering @ a nursing home b/c they have activities there with exercise programs- A Seniors facility or even a school with a PE program-! Anything is better than nothing @ all-!!!!! Good Luck to everyone & Happy New Year-! <Smile>

Bless you... Don't let the fact that some people don't understand hinder you in your attempt to strengthen your body. Sometimes when people don't understand they assume and appear cold and uncaring.
