    That really annoys the crap out of me too!


  2. I understand...
    I'll take note of the how many sets you have left and be a bit more friendlier next time.

    Yeah, I'm the same way. And I, too, tell people it's no rush. But most people have a set workout of X number of sets, so I just want to know if I caught them at the start or the finish.

    My gym is very small and they've recently brought on a 2nd trainer. Both of these guys are cross-fit nuts (which is fine; to each his own), but they train ALL of their clients that way. So, what the result is, now, is not one, but two trainers at the exact same time running the exact same type of workouts, which results in 2 clients at 4-8 stations. Couple that with the fact that one guy trains 2-3 kids, together, so they all do the same thing at the same time.

    My gym also only has 3 olympic bars - 1 in the squat/curl (lol) rack, 1 on the flat bench, 1 on the incline bench. That is it and there are no spares. There is, however, a barbell that has only a foot of space on each end and probably weighs 30 pounds or so. The trainers, now, have decided to randomly take an olympic bar and keep it in their little station (filled with bands, balance balls and like 2 kettle bells), along with a ton of plates (of which, you guessed it, the gym has very few of). So, I get in to do my workout, or move to a station only to find no bar and I have to walk all over the place in search of it. I'll strip their weights off of it and move it, too. What's frustrating is that they're very rarely using it, but they never put it away. They also don't re-rack the plates and sometimes the DBs.

    Oh, and people have been stealing the clips, so we literally only have 4, now (enough for 2 bars).



    I kind of hate my gym. lol

    Close to it, lol. I pay $20/month and that includes unlimited tanning. It's also only 3 minutes to my house and open 24/7/365.

    Plus, I'm locked into another year of the contract that I'd have to pay to break unless I move 25+ miles from here. In all honesty, I didn't expect to be living down here more than a year and it's been just over 2, already.

    I got ya. Well if it's 24 hrs, that's great. My gym is too. But those 2 trainers can't be hogging all the equipment all the time then. I hear u on the distance too. I makes a huge difference when u live close.

    My other favorite question:
    Stranger approaches after staring for 10 minutes: Duuude, what supplements are you taking?
    Quickly whip my head in his direction and snap "Protein!" then walk away humored yet aggravated he didnt question my diet.

    When I am doing circuit or supersets I always time my workouts off peak hours when I know less people will be there. The gym I have near me actually has a machine circuit set up away from everything else with all Nautilus motions. Pretty clever.

    You dont mean to be a dick but you wanna let someone know kindly that you would like to use the equipment and also for you to gauge how much time until its available.

  12. I don't have a prob with the circuit trainers but don't get upset when I work in ya know

  13. I forgot how much i dislike the "All you" phrase until today when I said it.

  15. I work out LATE at night most the year so I dont have to deal with this... during the summer I workout during the mid morning afternoon and most folks still arent in there till the evening when it starts to cool down...

    I hate interruptions or folks on the equipment I need to use, especially when its 2 teenage girls just sitting there laughing at eachother, everytime I hear a girl laugh in the gym it makes me cringe... She needs to be as serious as I am if shes gonna be there, its not a hangout, its a gym.

    I hear ya... I used to wait till around 1am to workout in my college days to avoid people... Gym time is gym time, go there do work, leave so you don't bother others.

  17. Tiny boys throwing their weights into the rack and then jumping up to make sure everyone just saw that they finished a set AND/OR slamming the machines with cables and plates between each rep. And honestly I'd say the guy who brings a cloud of axe body spray with him around the gym is pretty awful too...

    When I'm doing a heavy week, I don't mind as much, since I rest quite a bit between sets. During high intensity week, though, I time my workouts, so I hate the interruptions, as well.

    And yeah, whether it's young girls or stupid teenage boys in a group of 5, it drives me nuts. If they're in my way, I'll usually ask if I can work in (or if they're d-bags, I'll just tell them I'm going to). One of the perks to looking bigger and intimidating (my awesome beard receives most of the credit for this).

    We have the rubber-coated DBs and the 70's, 80's and 100's are all either both missing coating, or at least one is. It makes it incredibly difficult to progress properly when doing DB work; jumping from 65 to 75 isn't always going to work.

    The trainer had some guy with the 100's, walking them from end to end of the gym, 2 nights ago. He wasn't doing lunges, or anything, but he'd grunt the whole time he walked with them. I almost told him that the 95's weigh more than the 100's since they're missing the coating, but I just passed on that one. Luckily, since they were missing the rubber, it didn't matter, but he would just throw them at the end, rather than take the effort to do a quarter-squat and place them down. D-bag.

    Then we've got our good friend who I call "quarter-rep" at the gym. The kid is in decent shape, but he'll load things with absurd amounts of weight and not even get halfway through the ROM. I thought, at first, that maybe he was just doing this on certain lifts for a period of time to increase strength (purposely doing partials), but I've confirmed this is most certainly not the case. He's the kid who loads 4 plates on the squat rack, barely gets a bend in his knees and then claims he squats 405.

    *sigh*

  21. I don't think that most people realize how terribly they treat the equipment. Or they just don't care... Holding back the urge to let people know that they aren't the only ones that have to use the equipment is a daily struggle. I try to treat all the stuff like it's mine and it gets to me when others don't have the common courtesy to do the same. My fiance and I were talking last night and we determined that for the most part manners have become a nonexistent practice. Maybe I've just worked in retail too long...

    I'm glad I'm not the only one. If I'm at a station, I typically put the plates all away where they belong if someone did it wrong. Then again, my closet is also organized by color...*sigh* My mother did a number on me...lol

  26. All my dress shirts must face the same direction towards the door. Each shelf is in descending order from upper body/top layer to lower body/inner layer.

    I, too, blame my mother. God bless her wonderful soul.

    Right on. Love that

  28. I saw the craziest thing the other day. This dude in between sets would pretend he was a short stop.
    He would get in a short stop stance pounding his fist into his imaginery glove, with intensity all about him like hes in
    the 7th game of the world series.
    Then he squats down and imagines to field a fast ball grounder hit right to him. He fields it makes an exagerated play "like hes throwin someone out at first"
    or the other side of the gym, depends on how you see it I guess.
    This dude was making all kinds of plays. Cathing line drives and throwin them out at home. Fieldin grounders and turnin doubles, Man He Coudl Play!
    The whole time hes like checkin himself in the mirrors, maybe reviewing his form or maybe he just reyi likes how he looks playing imaginery baseball, I dont know.
    Maybe if I see him again I'll see if he wants me to hit some imaginery balls to him. He probably say something like "Yeah, that would be cool, thanks."
    I never seen nothin like it, right between two benches in front of the dumbell rack.

    You should have played pitcher.

  30. How about the people who think they are god's gift to the gym, complaining about everything ppl do do wrong at the gym on these forums... Complaining about people who are most likely new to the gym just makes you sound like a jackass fyi

    And I'm not referring to the OP, those are annoying gotta go with "b" there.
