Apparently that whole gym thing that Gwyneth Paltrow is doing with her trainer Tracey Anderson might not be doing that great. It hasn't even opened yet, but the cold calls to strangers have begun. According to the NY Post, the gym staff have been calling anyone and everyone to try and get them to come in and sign up.
What happened to all those stories a few months ago where the entire world had already joined the club and there was a waiting list and even Gwyneth's mom had drank the Kool Aid and said she hoped she would be able to get a membership. Now, it is just like any other health club in America, although with this one you do get outrageous monthly fees in the $400 range and get to pay almost $5000 just for the privilege of joining, which no one appears to want to do.
On the plus side, you would get to watch Gwyneth Paltrow work out. As an added bonus, I heard she will personally critique or criticize all the customers at the gym and tell them what they are doing wrong with their lives and how she can make everything perfect for them just like her life is perfect. She will be offering seminars on how she got to be so perfect and of course her ultra exclusive premium newsletter which, unlike the free one, has a horoscope personally prepared by Gwyneth, her meat grilling tips, and comes with a free copy of Shallow Hal.
