The only thing burning up as far as I’m concerned is my wallet when I ask about membership rates.

I do love how people say things about the cost of this gym to join fernwood its about $55 per fornight general membership thats for the use of the gym per year $1430 thats no personal trainer.

To do the same thing at flames is about $1875 and thats with a personal trainer.

Not only that it works I’ve lost 75kgs in 58 weeks thanks to flames.

The irony was hillarious at 730am this morning as I lay in bed listening to the news on the radio. They were careful to only say the gym and the north lyneham shops, the only word that came to my mind was FLAMES!

Spectra, that’s right. Everyone know Irony is like goldy and silvery, only it’s made of iron.

I always thought it was “a free ride, where you already been.”

Just heard that the building at North Lyneham that burnt down was owned by the same people who own the CISAC & Gymmy/Club Lime.

Is that like when an electrician gets hurt, it’s shocking!!!!!!!

I’m surprised that while they had a back to base alarm – surely they’d also have a direct smoke alarm system to either the security or fire brigade…or would that be too much common sense?

It’s like rain on your wedding day
Or a free ride, when you’ve already paid

People, this is not irony, it’s simply hilarious (not for those involved of course – I feel for the people whose business was affected).
A fire department burning down is irony.
/End grammar nazi rant.

That’s a bit off colour

Why do you hate coloured people so much?

I was there ready to train at 5.30 this morning. By the expressions of Quentin and the other trainers, this was a complete shock. I don’t doubt that they will have a temporary gym up and running in the next couple of days…they are very passionate about what they do.

Quentin is not the kind of guy to participatein, or initiate a jewish stocktake.

It was also reported that he is working feverishly to attempt to get a temporary gym up and running by Monday. That doesn’t sound like the actions of a man looking to get out of the business now does it?

Sammy Sammy 10:21 am 19 Sep 08

ABC News reported that the owner was alerted at home by an alarm, and he went to the scene to find the building ablaze. He then phoned the fire brigade who arrived within a few minutes.

5) Is there a strong smell of petrol at the scene?
