A PERSONAL trainer has sued the trendy gym where he works for age discrimination – saying the music it plays is too modern.
Fitzroy Gaynes, 64, says that by not listening to Radio One or going to a club, he has been discriminated against.
The club has a policy of playing music for no more than 18 months.
Older music is also fine as long as the played version was recorded or remixed in the meantime.
The club – Third Space, in Soho, central London – say anything older simply doesn’t sound good when played through their system.
In October 2019, Mr. Gaynes filed a complaint alleging bullying, harassment and discrimination against age, race and sex following an investigation into his conduct.
This claim was denied by the gym as well as a similar one a year later.
Now, employment judge Anthony Snelson has dismissed Mr Gaynes’ music claims at a hearing in London.
“It is with great sadness that Mr Gaynes, at the end of his illustrious career, should find himself expending great emotional energy on recriminations and bitterness,” he said.
