Local man hellbent on joining gym discovers he's already member

Nashville, TN - Nashville native, Bob Smith, woke up on January 1, 2020, with one mission - join a gym. Smith's wife, Margie, told The Inquisitor, "I haven't seen Bob this fired up since last January 1st. He is hellbent on getting fit."

According to witnesses, Bob was at the gym check-in counter by 6:00 a.m., ready to sign up. Witnesses heard Smith tell the employee, "Today's the day, my friend. Sign me up for a whole year. Let's do this!"

When the worker entered Smith's information in the system, he discovered that Smith was already a member in good standing. Records show that Smith joined the gym at 6:03 a.m. on January 1, 2019, and his $360 per year membership has already auto-renewed for 2020.

Smith was so surprised by the news that he left the gym to go home and check his bank statements for the charge. It is unclear if he ever returned to workout.
