‘Inmates have similar gyms and even a free lunch,’ one person quipped.
‘Why’s it called jungle when it’s at the beach?’ queried a second.
‘Can I pay in nature?’ a third joked.
Not all the responses were negative with some users praising the concept for getting people ‘out in nature’.
Another likened the equipment to the Flintstones but called the classes ‘epic’.
‘Great Tulum jungle gym vibes!’ said one local.
The personal trainer eventually responded to the barrage of cruel comments but the trolling didn’t stop with one personal likening the ordeal to the notorious Amalfi Beach Cub controversy
The personal trainer eventually responded to the barrage of cruel comments.
‘Everyone speaking negatively please take it somewhere else. See it first then if you must, judge it accordingly,’ he wrote.
‘We wouldn’t be promoting something that we didn’t have permits for. It’s not a gym, it’s group classes/personal training!’
Despite the man’s best efforts the trolling didn’t stop with one personal likening the ordeal to the notorious Amalfi Beach Cub controversy when an entrepreneur who wanted to open a European-style club on Bondi Beach received major backlash and even death threats for the proposal.
