    What's more annoying?


    What do you find more aggravating/annoying?
    A) The guy who grunts like a wild boar during mating season
    B) The guy who finds it necessary to pretend he's Wiz Kalifa in the mirror between sets

    I have since enjoyed working out at home. Though I do go to the gym once or twice a month. When I move back to hawaii I know i'm going to run in to these fools who hog stuff, make noise, etc... sigh... and I'm going to probably be working a normal job and have no choice but to hit the gym at the busy times...

    I hate when your just trying to lift alone, do your own stuff sometimes im in a terrible mood and just want to go about my business and get out. And people are either just akwardly close to you doin something they could do on other side of gym where its empty, feel the need to give adivce mid rep, or that akward moment when you know some kid wants to use the area your in but won't say anything and kinda just stares at out even when hes on other side of room just staring.

    This! I no longer wait til they are done or even say excuse me. I find it so irritating that they are right in front of the rack that i just shove my way in to get the DBs I want while rolling my eyes and biting my tongue.

    grunters are ****ing annoying especially when the weight isnt that much. But high schoolers talking around a piece of equipment are the worst.
    Or people who leave a bench, and return 15-20 minutes later, wondering why you're using it.

    Grunters get my vote! Also love the people that don't warm up just bro stretch and then try maxing out. Always ends up a pathetic lift and they look like fools. Stupidity is rampant.

    I dont know what a Wiz kalifa is but by its name im sure its annoying. Grunting during deadlifts or squats understandable but doing curls un necessary.

    B

    The ridiculous grunts on EVERY rep are annoying, but I blast my iPod, anyway, so it doesn't bother me that much.

    For whatever reason, I absolutely cannot STAND people who flex in the mirrors. I don't know why, because I know it's becoming more commonplace, but it just is bad etiquette in my opinion. Save it for when you're there at night and no one else is or for the bathroom mirror. I'd be lying if I said I didn't flex, but I do that at home if I want to look. Now I'm not saying I don't sneak a glance in the mirror when I'm carrying a 95lb DB to see how my tricep separation is looking, and I obviously look during sets, but just full-on flexing or even worse, the lifting up of the shirt to look at "abs" (this is in quotations because the majority of the time, it's someone who is rail skinny and you just see ribs) irritates me to no end.

    I think its more annoying to the guy walking around giving advice on technique when he then does butt bobbs as squats and rocks his bicep curls and then grunts while doing it.

    its not to rush the person (in my case), I just wanna know if I should go do another exercise. if somebody will be spending 5-10 mins on a piece of equipment and its too much of a hassle to work in, might as well not sit around waiting for that to happen, and miss out on another piece of equipment (my gym sucks).

    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

    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.

    Ditto!

    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
    That sucks! I hate when people steal equipment! And that's just the least of ur problems. Change gyms dude. Its not worth it, unless it's free. 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.
