New Jersey – Saying seeing is believing, 43-year-old gym member Brian Williams gave up strengthening his core late yesterday afternoon. Fellow gym members confirmed seeing Williams quit a basic core routine after several days’ trying. “Was the sitting on the ball did him in,” said sparring partner, Barbara Kirsty. “I said to him I said: ‘Brian, if there was anything to this core crap, christ, you woulda seen some results by now.” Reportedly the first time he gave up on anything, Williams said he aimed to quit the gym for a while to get to the bottom of the problem. “Irony? Yeah, ‘course it’s ironic. Looking inside to see why I quit the core business – wicked ironic,” he said. “But that’s not gonna stop me looking. Shutting that goddamn inner critic – that’s what I’m afta.”
