The New Jersey gym owner offers free memberships for those who do not receive a COVID vaccine

After Krispy Kreme announced that it is offering a free donut to those who receive the COVID-19 vaccine, a New Jersey gym owner has put his own spin on the incentivized push.

Ian Smith, the owner of The Atilis Gym, of Bellmawr, New Jersey, took to Twitter to say he offers free gym memberships to those who don’t get the vaccine.

In the viral tweet, Smith wrote, “We believe in health – the real way – exercise, good nutrition, plenty of vitamin D, zinc, and an environment to de-stress.”

Since posting the tweet on Tuesday, Smith said he had received a lot of hate mail from Thursday morning.
