PlanetFitness has it wrong about your future

The sign when you entered PlanetFitness today:

“Do something today that your future self will thank you for.”

It’s a decent sentiment, but I think they have it wrong. If you workout and get healthy you will presumably live longer and have fewer aches and pains in the future. But those will be things you will largely not see and therefore not think about.

Who sits around when they are 85 and says, “Boy, I’m glad I worked out when I was 42?” No one. You’ll be too busy living your life and being a cool, alive old person.

Here’s what the sign should say:

“Do something today so that your future self is not in pain and constantly bitching to your family and friends.”
