Douchebags at the gym...

After today's workout I think it's fair to say that the biggest douchebags in your average gym are the (Obviously under qualified) personal trainers who run around looking for every last **** to suck with the ****ty advice they give out to people.
My younger brother has joined the gym recently after a lot of prodding and prompting from me as he was about as unhealthy as it gets. He'd had some health problems and required HRT etc for a while but it boiled down to the fact that he looks like his body is built out of macaroni, was about as inactive as you could be and didn't keep a good routine as far as diet/sleep/training of any description (Zero muscle mass - he works in film & IT) and as part of joining the gym they gave him 3 free personal training sessions.
Now, he's zero muscle mass, probably around 5'11 and maybe 140lbs. What does this douchebag PT have him doing when I get to the gym? Flat out zero resistance cardio for an hour at a time with the only resistance work being lunges with like 5lb db's... W. T. F.
Anyways, I straightened my brother out with a solid routine that's going to see him build some muscle in the next 6-8 weeks with some moderate resistance cardio bookending his training to improve his CV fitness without annihilating whatever minimal muscle he's carrying. He's made more progress in the 5 days of doing what I told him to do than in the 2 weeks of doing what this ****head told him to do.
I also got into the PT about it and asked him WTF he was thinking, because I know he's used to duping 5'3" 300lb chicks out of $50 a session but the rules for training overweight people don't apply to everyone. He apologises and tells me I should become a personal trainer...
P.S. No offense intended to some of the good PT's that frequent this board like Travis - you guys are awesome. You must get even ****tier about it than I do with so many douchebags raping the dollars and the credibility out of your noble profession.

The skinny guys at my gym that wear wife beaters that fit like a poncho who walk around puffed up, hat on backwards etc.
I've been tempted to ask them where they find wife beaters that loose because all mine cut into my armpits and I can't find them any bigger.
Damn turd buckets

Anyone who throws weights.
Anyone who yells.
Anyone who wears a belt for every exercise, but doesn't actually do anything.
And the fitness chicks who wear skin tight clothes and do stiff leg deads so I have to worry its gonna be boner time any second.

This is not a pet peave since I have only seen 1 man do it, but I thought it worth sharing:

Same Old Asian Man: 15 mins later, blow drying his unit

I've had a run of midgets at my gym with little/no muscle mass doing lots of forearm exercises. I mean what do they want to look like..?
Ah well, the fact that it annoys me just makes me SFW harder.

I despise when Gay's follow me from station to station. This old fruitcake kept migrating with me everytime i left an area to go to the next.
And he would always be behind me.
Everytime i go to glance in the mirror he's "between sets"....just sitting there.
Yeah its flattering and all...But it should end there. Dont follow me out to the parking lot and ask me questions about "earning some extra money"...I mean wtf.

Can't stand the young punk wiggers who start all those stupid conversations with you only to find out if you are juicing. I got Tool rippin' on my Ipod, I'm soaked and pumped to the max, I'm breathing like I just sprinted 1k, and some jack stain wants to know about supps. I feel like slappin' him with a 45 pound plate. Last week, I told a similar knuckled head to stop talking, quit wearing out the mirrors, and to start eating and lifting heavy. For crying out loud, I can't stand em! I want to wear a shirt that says "leave me alone!" Because of my size, every idiot in the gym wants to know my diet and training routine. Easy, I eat or drink clean protein constantly until I am sick, and then lift the heaviest weights possible for as long as possible until I am sick again - rest - repeat.

Saw something similar where all the weight dropped off one side and caused the bar to whip in the other direction almost taking out the guy on the bench next-door. Gotta say though the guy in that instance had no spot.
That douche was the worst spotter ever.

I had kettle bell class this am, now doing kettle bells many might know you grab a few various bells, heaviest i can do is 47 pds, swing, and cleans, ( bruises to prove it)...i see this guy come in, seen him before look at what I have and head to the heavy section, the blacks and grays, 80 to 120 pds maybe...... all during class he was struggling, crying almost until the instructer looked at him and said.."dont worry that she can swing more than you get a comfortable weight a**".............. I smiled and laughed like heck
I hate guys who try to do more than they can......BUT i love when someone calls them on it hehe
RIP Ryan, :(
