Christopher Turk

Feeling the burn

Most people have heard the tale of a scrawny guy minding his business on a beach until a body fascist with bulging muscles runs past, kicking sand in his face. Humiliated, he vows to get even.

Turk connection

I READ with interest the letter entitled ''Springing to the defence of Tom Turk'' by Philip G. Clark (Sunday Morning Post, August 8).

I have reason to believe Mr Clark is Tom Turk's lawyer as well as business partner, which may put his letter in a different light. It is a pity he failed to make this clear. CHARLES CHENG Hong Kong

We should be told

TOM Turk's business practices, as reported in the South China Morning Post on May 5, come as no surprise to me. I had joined his club in Central a few years ago, but only used the facilities a few weeks before a heavy workload (and lack of willpower) made me quit, unfortunately without formally advising the club - I simply stopped going and paying at the same time.

Treat this issue rationally

WE are grateful to the many members of City Athletic Club who signed our petition to Tom Turk requesting him to re-consider his decision to ban Mike Sinclair from the gym.

Fitness club ban acceptable

I AM a member of Tom Turk's gym and am amazed to find how Mr Turk has become a centre of criticism in these columns for banning Mr Mike Sinclair from using his fitness club.

Critics should note that Mr Turk is not a doctor but an operator of a fitness club.

One of his prime objectives as a fitness club operator is to provide quality services to members.

Other options were available

IT is a pity that shortly after AIDS Awareness Week we had ignorant individuals, such as Tom Turk, reinforcing paranoia associated with this disease. If there is any risk of passing on AIDS at a gym, which is very slim, I would have thought Mr Turk could assume that Mike Sinclair is not the only sufferer amongst his 5,000 members.
