Caught using her cellphone while working out on the elliptical, a Boston woman has had her gym membership revoked .

 She blames an aggressive manager at the Planet Fitness where she is a member.

 She told the Boston Herald that she received an unexpected call from her doctor.

 She says while she was talking, she was approached by the "very threatening" manager, who told her to get off the phone or risk losing her membership.

Asmar tells MyFoxBoston.com she was taken aback by the manager's "very threatening behavior."

"The Planet Fitness manager's reaction was extremely aggressive and threatening," she said in a statement. "It scared me. No one deserves to be spoken to in this manner. I spent two days trying to get in touch with corporate with no response."

She added that she did not want to leave the workout area to take the call because her iPad was hooked up to the elliptical.

 However, club co-owner Brian Kablik claims Asmar was the one acting belligerent.
