KTX Fitness may appear to be just another local gym that hosts a number of the popular classes, such as Step, Zumba, Kickboxing and Spin. But thanks to the enthusiastic members, as well as the super-passionate trainer, this fitness center is causing quite the buzz on Facebook.
Case in point: This recent posting entitled “Off The Chain! Keith Thompson Exercise Class!!!!” [sic on the exclamation points]. As of this afternoon, this one minute and 26-second video has received 351 Likes, 171 comments and 2,004 shares.
Why is everyone so pumped up? See for yourself:
The muscle man who’s twerking it in the aqua blue tank (and matching sneakers!) is Keith Thompson, who became a certified trainer in 2009. After losing 70 pounds, Thompson was hired by a national gym to teach both step and cycle classes in three locations — but “the demand for his classes outgrew the space of the gym. And KTX Fitness was born.”
KTX’s website also mentions Thompson’s “contagious energy and positive attitude,” which is apparent!!!! A few of the comments on Facebook are as follows: “OMG!!!! We need this LOL” “This is what I was talkin bout. Lol” “Now that’s a spin class!” “OMG! I NEED THIS MAN IN MY LIFE LIKE ASAP!! AWESOME!”
We have just two questions regarding Mr. Thompson’s super-sweaty twerking spin class: 1. When is the next flight to Atlanta? 2. Miley who?
