The other day I blogged about how Dave Blondin, the owner of Prime Fitness in Oxford, opened his doors on Monday in defiance of the lockdown. He urged other gym owners to do the same, but because everyone is a coward in this state no one joined him. I had no idea at the time I wrote the blog that Dave Blondin was the owner, but he actually used to be a student of mine at Shepherd Hill 14 years ago. And I can honestly say I’ve never been more proud of a former student than I am of him right now. I taught him about Rosa Parks, and now he’s become the Coronavirus Rosa Parks. This letter makes me wanna puke.
“We all have a role to play in making this as safe a re-opening as possible.”
Dave Blondin and gym owners everywhere have done their job. They shut down for 10 weeks to “flatten the curve.” They tanked their businesses because they had no choice. Meanwhile hacks like this are getting paid and have not been affected by any of this.
Town Manager Jennifer Callahan is the definition of a bureaucrat. She went to private schools her whole life, used to be a State Rep but lost to Ryan Fattman years ago, and has moved from one admin job to the next. The guy she replaced as Town Manager in 2018 got paid $98,491 that year, so safe to say she’s making triple figures. She’s also a former RN, which to me makes her opinion on this whole situation rather biased.
Tyrant Callahan filed an injunction to shut down the gym because she is a tyrant. Today she sent her thug Thomas Purcell, the head of the Oxford Board of Health, to Prime Fitness. You gotta see this:
Just look at this slob.
No mask either!! These fucking frauds!!!
The guy with five chins is telling the gym owner what is and isn’t healthy. This is where America is at right now. If this pork roll really cared about public health in Oxford he’d be signing up for a membership.
The problem with this country is that we don’t consider our obesity problem to be a public health crisis, but it is. We glamorize being “plus sized” and shit on people for “body shaming.” Michelle Obama recognized this which is why she dedicated her 8 years as First Lady to focusing on healthy living for kids. We’re dealing with a virus that primarily preys on the elderly, sick, and morbidly obese. And our solution is to close down gyms? Brilliant.
Gyms are essential. Not just to the owners and employees who depend on them to make a living, but to the people who go there. I’ve personally gained 10 pounds during quarantine. I don’t have time to lift weights like back in the day, but I used to go to the gym on almost a daily basis to exercise. I need to sweat for 45 minutes a day for my own sanity. A lot of people do. I’d love to run outside but I can’t because my achilles is beat to shit from running. I feel gross and disgusting all hours of the day now, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. It affects you mentally and physically.
There’s absolutely no reason gyms can’t be open right now, especially Dave Blondin’s. Does this look dangerous to you?
If Walmart can take proper precautions to limit the transmission of a disease that isn’t a deadly threat to 99.9% of the population, then gyms can too.
Oxford’s State Rep is Paul Frost and their State Senator is Ryan Fattman. I plan on contacting them both for comment on this story, but they both should be vocal in their support for Dave Blondin and other gym owners. Small businesses like this are the life blood for the community, and the product that is provided by places like this (exercise, health, fitness) is essential to the community.
P.S. If they actually cared about public safety in Oxford they’d outlaw Carl’s Diner and their mammoth sized portions of sausage. Just kidding, I love Carl’s. I just need places like Prime Fitness to exist in order to justify going there.

Any guesses on where this obese “health agent” went after he served the notice on the gym owner? The drive-throughs at McDonald’s, then Chick-fil-A, and then back again — in his Mass. state SUV, motor left running the entire time. Supposedly checking up on their Covid compliance while stuffing his face. Charging it all to the taxpayers and laughing and belching all the way.
This guy is the former fire chief and first responder. Hope all of you internet trolls follow trump in an early grave. Turtle boy and his followers are all pieces of shit. See you easy it is to jump to generalizations. Turtle boy gets paid to be a an internet trolls. The rest of you are just sheep. Wake up.
What a joke of a town! Do they even have a Corona compliance task force?
The agent from the health department is morbidly obese and doesn’t wear a mask. You can’t make this stuff up. Photo of the year. “Do as we say not as we do” state and local government. These people are so dumb they don’t know they’re alive.
maybe you should have been teaching your students about Thomas Ashe instead of Rosa Parks…
Ironic to the max, he’s obese and need a gym pronto!
I was driving around Boston and Cambridge today just to get out of the house and really the only people on the streets were joggers and cyclists. People who job with masks on are fucking idiots. Great way to pass out and end up in the ER from inhaling too much carbon dioxide.
If masks worked there would be no need to social distance nor a shutdown of the economy. Keeping lockdown going and pushing social distancing is just proving the fact masks are just feel good theater. The only people who should wear masks and self quarantine are at risk individuals like elderly, the sick, etc.
It’s all bulllshit. Fuck Charlie baker and the democrat tyrants fining business owners.
I wonder if the fat cunt Jennifer the manager ever finds bird shit on her teeth
She couldn’t manage my dick
Have you seen Rep Paul Frost lately? 5’4 and 300 lbs. Puts that Board of Unhealth guy to shame.
Opening a gym during a pandemic in defiance of regulations put in place to protect public health does not encourage healthy living and I can’t believe anyone would be dumb enough to make that fucking argument.
Your mother didn’t follow the governors directive last night when she took her mask off to lick her negroe boyfriends balls
Please change your name to Karen
Fucking beta male
We don’t have to worry about your offspring because no hyphenated last name bitch wants anything go to do with you
Just because you put on a few pounds doesn’t mean we can’t dress up in our spandex running shorts get together and be two hot guys doing sexy running shorts poses together. I say we drop $40 on pizza get some strawberry vanilla vape and start a rancid dance party you sexy little fuck monkey, let’s have fun!!
Thank GOD the government is looking out for us and trying to keep us healthy.
Going on two straight months eating pizza. Yayyyy
“We all have a role to play in making this as safe a re-opening as possible”. Spread ’em Ms. Callahan.
that’d be a Grand Reopening. one where the fish weeps for the baited hook.
More like where the fish sleep. Some say pussy’s like the mob. One slip of the tongue and you’re in deep shit.
i like being part of a mob, screaming our masks off.
Mingle with old, fat, black and beaners.
Anybody with high blood pressure, diabetes, smokers, junkies, criminals, hardos and simpy Bernie Bros cough and sneeze at will.
Wipe these leeches off the planet.
This is the chance of a lifetime to sweep net consumers off the board and leave the rest of us societal producers with the most promising economy, social security safety net and health care system focused on health instead of death in modern times.
“Bring out your dead” Monty Python said.
Has anyone seen the morbidly obese fat slob Leicester Cop that’s always out directing traffic at construction sites. I literally laugh out loud every time I see him. I want to take a pic, but can’t while I’m driving. He looks like a beach ball with legs. He makes that health agent in oxford look skinny. How the fuck did he ever become a cop, or stay on the force?
Someone needs to set up a go fund me for this guy to pay these fines, we’ve been waiting for a business owner with balls well here he is folks, fuck this tyrannical administration
Funny how when a fat short man with no mask enforces laws everyone hates him but if that same fat short man wore a police uniform and no mask you gay boy badge bunnies would line up for a yogurt facial from him.
You only hate the police because they arrested your mother for prostitution on several occasions
That fat bastard was out of breathe after 2 freakin steps!
Jennifer lives in Sutton and also has a home in Fort Myers FL.
She is nicely insulated from these local issues. She collects her paycheck from the taxpayers and just serves as an Administrator.
Nice work if you can get it . . . I’d do it too if I could, know why? Because people are stupid and vote (D) nothing else
Isn’t he the health agent from the moscoffian periwinkle pub lobster incident?
Definitely do NOT contact Purcell & Associates in Oxford and let them know how shitty their septic tank plumbing business really is.
That picture of Jennifer in her office has to be at least 10 years old!!…Look at that old Windows XP screensaver in the background!
Are you kidding? I would bet the photo is recent. The software the IRS uses (Cobalt?) is so old the agency is having to bring people out of retirement to work on it. The FBI uses something like DOS or Windows ’95. Many of the municipalities and hospitals around the country have been shut down by ransomware because they use old systems like Windows XP and never update the software or the security provisions.
That guy has more Chins than a Chinese phone book.
He must eat at the Phat Chin Chinese Restaurant. Take out only though.
You will get a ticket for helping people slim down. Gyms are closed but you can get your double cheeseburger st the drive thru all night long.
We average 750k deaths from heart disease in America. The best about covis is no one has fied from heart disease in the last 8 weeks. Hard to believe but covid is the cure for heart disease.
Uncle TB, did you just go there? Why should you be questioning everyone in this photo for not wearing a mask? Are you seriously a Karen? By the way 5 chin Charlie has respiratory issues duh!
He wore a mask at his court hearing. He’s a mask guy.
Why didn’t he just tell the judge she was violating AK’s HIPAA rights???
He’s calling out hypocrisy
Charlie has respiratory issues ? Could that be because his heart and lungs are all clogged up around fat? Just a guess.
So the cameras were running at the right time. The crowd gathered and 4 chin pork chop hands over the paperwork. How ironic that the board of health issues a cease and desist order for a gym!?!?!? Whose health are they publicly protecting?
Oxford, working so hard to fatten the curve.
I don’t care who you are, that’s funny right there
He was taking his time cuz he had the walking farts, you ever have those? my Lord
I LOVE YOU LARRY!!!
When are you people going to get it?
This is not about saving life because if that was the case the nursing homes wouldn’t have so many dead old folk.is this is about power and control! This is to see how many useful idiots are willing to give up freedom for the sake of the government keeping them safe.
This is their way of ushering in socialism and communism under the false pretense of safety. A few weeks ago the idiot in charge of NY, which Charlie parker is following behind. was all about saving life. Than just the other day when asked about the numerous deaths in the nursing homes because of his doing. He said o well people are going to die. This was never about saving life. All red states have been just fine but all blue states have multiple death tolls. Bull gates had a huge smile on his face when asked about the crash of the economy. This is their way of undoing what Trump has worked so hard doing for us. They hate him for exposing all of their antics. This is not about life, it’s about making the backbone of this country aka the middle class completely disappear. It was once poor middle and rich now after this it will be poor or rich. They want us all to depend on them and that’s all there is too it. Wake the fuck up and stop being sheep. You think you’re uncomfortable now, just wait for the hours and hours of wait time in the soup line only to find out there is nothing there for you.
People would rather twiddle around to wait and see what will happen and you know what? It’s going to get much worse. All this time sitting around for the inevitable when you could all be out there doing something so the inevitable does not happen!
I could articulate this in a more intelligent manner but the way society is today. this should be dumbed down enough for most of you to understand.
I know I know crazy right. How many times over the last several years have I called shit out. only to be labeled crazy but in the end everything I have predicted has come true.
So in all reality I’m not crazy at all.
The few that have said I was crazy are actually the crazy ones.. the rest of you completely agreed with my predictions and saw how they have cone about.
This site was much more betterer when we had actual turtle homies here. Some of you remain the rest are blind leftjobs
Hey Jen Callahan ! Morris from slapshot called and he wants his suit back. Joe the manager has a 70’s fashion show this weekend
Fuck that fat fuck !! Fucking fat loser. Also, I’d really like to bang the workout chick with the hat. I’d enjoy that and then , while relaxing in the afterglow of our animal fuck fest, I’d call up fatty mcfatterson and say “fuck you, fatty” .
Feel free to discuss !!
The owner of this site, his followers and the owner of this gym are all F’ing jokes. This guy has saved lives for a living as a firefighter in Oxford. The lot of you are sorry internet trolls who have nothing else to do but complain and blame others for your sorry lives.
Just because your rights say you can do something, it doesn’t mean you should. Basically, the gym owner is saying ” I don’t give a fuck about you getting sick, it my right to do it” typical muscle head
Just because craiglist got shutdown doesn’t mean my rancid pussy isnt for sale
He opened his gym so he can make a living and not go bankrupt. Is he putting guns to people’s heads and making them come workout? Nope. Everyone who goes there knows what the risks are.
Now go wrap yourself in plastic wrap, so no germs can get in and give you the Chinese Virus. Be sure to go extra tight around the head and neck area as the mouth is where the virus likes to enter.
You’re attacking the symptom, not the disease.
attack the sick.
Lol yeah I know a postmaster general that their job is to help out struggling post offices in Massachusetts and right the ship with their employees and business. They had to cut hours and one guy comes in the office and says “you can’t do that, I have a 2nd home and a boat!”
If we’re being honest compared to Trump that dudes healthy.
LOL! Look all the MAGA cultists downvoting this. How dare you insult Dear Leader? He has the face of a Hemsworth brother and an 8 pack washboard stomach under there.
Opening his gym is a GREAT business move.
1. The people who are reporting him probably don’t even belong to a gym and they will NEVER be his customers so who cares what they say.
2. His actual members are going to be thankful that he opened and now be loyal to him going forward. Especially knowing all the other gyms have no balls to stay open.
3. Members of other gyms will now consider joining his gym because they now know he is the only one willing to open up if another forced shut down occurs.
He may struggle now but if he can hold on, he will be rewarded by the fitness community. As soon as he allows new members to sign up, I’m doing it. Crunch Fitness sucks anyway.
The only downside for you is that you live close enough to Oxford that you could actually go to this gym.
Oxford handled this all wrong. They should have called in The Mass State Police Special Tactics and Operations Team. They could have taken Blodin out with minimal friendly casualties and put a stop to this insanity!
……on her face. That’s because she’s still getting paid from the real estate taxes Prime Fitness still has to fork over.
You know one thing you can do from home and on your own? Work out. Lift an 80 pound bag of shingles for an hour. morons….
Where do they sell BAGS of shingles? Lol.
Easy there! He’s talking about his wife….a bag of (with) shingles
I’m a responsible adult so have 6 months expenses saved up.
Social distancing and only going out when necessary.
All in all, not a big deal.
I’m glad we have a good governor in charge. He’s doing the best he can given these tough circumstances.
Governor Charlie Parker of Massachusetts is giving all of us a lesson in leadership.
well then go fuck yourself you uppity asshole
Oh is he now? If you’re a homeless,illegal,lawbreaker or a junkie you can go and do whatever you please whenever you please. I’m suppossed to obey? Yeah not happening ever. Everyone crying about distancing when not everyone is doing it are the useful idiots this state is famous for. I love all of you fucking morons buying this nonsense. Get in your vehicle go find the criminals near your house and tell them to mask up and isolate. Please let me know when and where so I can film and watch all the bravado dr and in from your faces
Oh, forgot to add. Please go ask all the dead veterans families if he is doing a great job
Guys just doing his job. Leave him alone.
You don’t have to attack everyone.
AK isn’t smart enough to make a case without resorting to personal insults. He’s not clever enough to be “funny” without it either.
Ja, ja, ja – so vas ze Gestapo und SS just doing their jobs. So vas ze fat-arschen Health Inspektor.
Turtleboy hasn’t been employed for like 5 years and two weeks ago was complaining that he had to watch his kid for ONE HOUR, but here he is saying he can’t find time to lift weights and blames the government for him gaining 10 pounds. Meanwhile this old man is a moral failure for being fat. Literally the only thing Turtleboy is consistent about is being hateful and uncharitable towards everyone but himself.
Yeah geesh guythz he’s just doing his job. Stop attacking everyone! Like the brown shirt nazis, they were just doing their job. Oh and Mao and the Red Guard killing millions of non compliant citizens in China, just doing their jobs guys. And Pol Pot, with the Khmer Rouge with the purge in Cambodia, it’s just genocide guys just doing their job! Poor old government enforcer of draconian illegal lockdowns, hey just doing their job! March on for the glorious revolution!
Rhode Island will have its strip clubs re-opened before MA gets to “phase 2.” Oh, the humanity!
Maine has drive thru strip clubs and instead of uber eats for delivery they have boober eats. You get to see ugly botched stretch marked tits of single cracked moms with multiple half somalian children deliver your food with a side of hep a and b if that’s your sort of thing!!
Ahhh Maine “the way life should be”
As soon as Gina finds a way to extort, uh, I mean, license, the dancers.
Wow a lot of self victimization over here. Didn’t you get a free $1200 you could’ve bought a stationary bike with? Aren’t you all about like personal responsibility or whatever?
Achtung, deplörable schweinen! You vill practice ze national socialist distancing, und you vill like it! Or ve shut you down!
The squat heard round the world.
Look, I’ve already seen the shitheads start in on this guy. Its not white privilege that this guy opened his gym and was not arrested. Now i’m hearing these morons NoCureStayLockdown bullshit! Fuck you! This became personal to me when I was 3 days away from my raise when shit went down. I lost my raise, my annual bonus AND now take 20% pay cut now thanks to Charlie Banker “the foreseeable future”. That is fucking with my family. Like I said, you assholes stay home and let the rest of us live our lives. Let’s see who walks away from this unscathed.
BTW, look at Noble Chemicals product. Funny, it says on the can effective against Pandemic of 2009. Funny, I remember hearing nothing about that at all. I wonder why….
I’m with you brother. I started a new position just before SHTF and was told I’d get a big raise when they come out in April. Well the shitbag company I’m with is playing up the COVID card and not giving a raise. Fuck them.
Yeah its all about your little raise. It’s personal now!
You still have a job?
This generation is so fuckin’ soft. Suck it up.
I’m going to allow for the fact you entirely missed the point of what I said. I am glad to work rather than sit home and collect free money plus extra I didn’t ear. And yes, THIS generation is soft for allowing their freedoms to be so easily taken away from them.
You’re soft for whining about your little lost raise. This is a little minor inconvenience. No ones freedom is gone. Wah I cant go to my gym. We would have lost WWII with people like you.
Yeah ok BOOMER
You’d fit right in with the “Hitler not such a bad guy” crowd. So, no ones freedom is being taken away except those who are not allowed to open their legally licensed business. Gotcha.
Millenial pukes in their pink panties smoking weed and giving reach arounds. Complaining my generation has it tough. The biggest bunch of pussies ever. Imagine a WW1 or Ww2 with this generation of girly men.
