Sounds like fitting karma for their numerous, annoying commercials.

Praise Jesus!  This is wonderful news! +1  :)

Now that I think of it, I haven't seen one of those commercials in almost a week.  These are the black treadmills with the extreme multicultural personal trainers? Some with English accents? I was thinking you had to be a particular shade of brown to participate and it had me feeling excluded.  :'(

Yes, indeed.  You nailed it.  I hope they they end up in the scrap heap of social engineering and insufferable PC bull crap.

:D

And the people said,  Amen.
Let us go about our week in high spirits.

Someone dumped a treadmill on me, which I promptly gave to my next door neighbor last summer.  With the condition he couldn't give it back.

Yesterday I saw it out front with a ''Free'' sign on it, lol.

And there's another thing. Since moving exclusively into town I've noticed people on the other side of town leaving things out front the house with a free sign on it.  Even if I wanted the item I most certainly spare myself the shame of pulling over and loading the thing up like a vulture.

...maybe I'll wait till midnight  ;D 8)

Treadmill's gone - some lucky wife is going to get a surprise on Mother's Day

I AM still seeing peloton peddling their stationary bikes as they try to save their asses.

One difference; now at the end of these commercials a male voice pipes in with some specific rule about memberships that was not there previous to the,  crash.
