A MAN’S fight to end his gym membership continues despite an elaborate scheme to fake his own death.
Tom Logan, from Hatfield, signed up to his local gym on January 2nd and has been trying to cancel his membership since January 4th.
Logan said: “After a pointless attempt to cancel the direct debit, I set fire to my membership card but the next day another card arrived in the post. I hadn’t even told them.
“Eventually I staged a boating accident. I bought a small sailing dinghy and blew it up just off the coast near Hastings.”
He added: “All my friends and family thought I was dead. It was incredibly traumatic for them, but I thought it would be worth it in the long run.”
Gym manager Wayne Hayes said: “If Tom looks at the contract he’ll find that death would not have ended his membership anyway. We have a wide range of classes for members who are no longer alive.”
