“Work Out” Recaps: Episode 3.5 “No Pain, No Gain”

Now it’s time for some
fun: The kids get to Boogie board. Tyra is afraid of the water, but unlike
Deenie and her boo-hoo ways, she’s up for anything and has a blast with the
whole experience, including getting sand in those hard to reach areas.

After everyone’s lips
have turned blue, Jackie pulls them out of the water and rewards the group with
the announcement that they’re all going to the Dolphin Bay Hotel, a luxe resort
and spa in Northern California. Someone call
ahead and warn the staff, please.

Consorting with the enemy — After her day at the beach, Paisley enjoys a massage from J.D. and they chat about
nothing interesting. More importantly, Brian is over at Plitt’s house,
rehashing his hate/hate relationship with Jackie.

On last week’s recap, there
were oodles of comments and processing
about whether Brian Peeler is a homophobe or not. In my humble opinion, he is
not a homophobe. Homophobes don’t cry real tears when
a gay friend dies. Homophobes don’t have
any gay friends. Actually, they probably do, they just don’t know it.

Brian tells Plitt all he
wanted was to have Jackie apologize to his client. Instead, Jackie fired Brian
for pestering her about it — that and a hundred other things she couldn’t stand
about him anymore. In the final analysis, it’s her gym and she can hire and
fire at will.

To read letters of
apology from both Jackie and Lisa, go to their show blogs.
Well, at least one of them apologized.

Anywho, moving on. Renessa,
Brian’s friend from before the show, stops by to give Brian a hug and take
advantage of Greg’s grill.

Brian: All I wanted her to do was
"woman up" and apologize. Swallow your pride and say, "Yes, you
know what? I did mess up. Yeah, I will call her and apologize." That’s all
I wanted.
Renessa: Did she?
Brian: No.
Renessa: Did she ever talk to her?
Brian: No.
Renessa: Is she going to?
Brian: No.

Plitt is the new guy and
doesn’t understand the Warner/Peeler animosity. Renessa says she heard Brian was
banned from the building, but Brian isn’t worried. "I’m looking into do my
own gym now," he says boldly. Brian Peeler’s Sports Gym closes at sundown.
To get there, take a left into the park; it’s last parking lot on the right, next
to the swing sets.

Renessa tells Brian that
Jackie said she was afraid of him. "I would never hit a woman," he
says simply. Dr. Plitt offers his diagnosis: Jackie is insecure and needs to
put others down, which provides her with some fleeting satisfaction, but does
not address her underlying discomfort with herself.

Renessa has slowly become
smitten with Greg and now hangs on his every word. She tells him he should have
his own show. Oh yeah, let’s do that

The whole lot of them are
riding the crazy train: The trainers are the passengers, Lisa’s collecting
tickets and Jackie’s in the front, driving the whole thing off a cliff. Everyone
