F... people at the gym
 
Specifically, F... people that don't understand what it means to let others work in when they are doing multiple sets.

This has really been bugging me for a while now. The 'Y' that I go to is pretty busy, and there are signs all over the place that say, "Please allow others to work in when doing multiple sets". I've never seen anyone follow this rule. There's nothing more annoying than waiting to use a machine when some jerkoff is doing 2-3 sets and resting for a few minutes in between each set. And they'll sit there and give YOU a dirty look like you're the one doing something wrong. :doh:

Good ol' YMCA. I've worked at one for the past 3 years of my life, and i'll send up a good F... people a the gym! How about these:

-The guys that grunt all the time. Exhaling, Inhaling, doesn't really matter, just all the time.

-The ones who try and become inspirational leaders and tell their buddies that "YOU CAN DO IT! JUST ONE MORE SET! WOOF WOOF! YOU CAN DO IT! YEA YEA YEAAAAHH!"

-The talk of what they USE to be able to do. I've had one too many conversations about how much someone could bench back in the day.

-And the infamous, i'm going to do a set and sit on this machine and do nothing for the rest of the hour but talk. Usually used by older woman, but it is susceptable to everyone.

ALL problems that I have. Here's a problem I have at our gym in which the population is fairly sparse most of the time. I have the opposite problem of Matty. I'll be sitting doing multiple sets of something and the ENTIRE GYM is basically empty and someone comes over asking if they can work in. I'm like, "How about you go and find another machine or area until I'm done?"

If I see someone holding a sheet is the ONLY time I let them work in because I know that they're trying to do it in some kind of order. Otherwise, there's a ZILLION other things you can do during the 7-8 minutes I'm on this machine.

And I REALLY hate grunters. It's like, "Look how huge I AM!"

The inspirational leaders are the ones that get to me. Definetly when i'm working and they come over and try and inspire me. It really just scares me to have a big, steriod-filled man yelling at me about how i can do just one more.

I hate the blockheads that stare at themselves in the mirrors. There's this one guy specifically that just struts around staring at himself like he's a gift from god or something. I'm like dude get over yourself, he's not even that big.

HAHAHA. You have RANDOM people come over and do that to you? That would drive me insane.

Usually I see two muscle-round retards helping each other, screaming at each other.

Don't you hate it when the gym employees tell you that you have to wear something over your workout thong? It like they don't understand that you need a full range of motion or something. I hate that.



Ok, I'm just kidding, I don't belong to a gym.

Yeah that's gross, but I don't care if someone is sweating or not, you should always wipe down the machine. It's common F'in courtesy.

I hate the meathead that wants to tell me a better way to do the exercise that I'm currently in the middle of doing. "Hey man, if you turn your hips you'll get a better burn in your quad". Thanks asshead. If I'm ever interested in looking leather skinned caveman, I'll take your advice.

haha...I go to a gym at a University...imagine all those problemsx10. We have guys that scream, grunt, take off their shirts, hog machines for HOURS, and even talk on cell phones in between reps...me and my buddy deal with it by giving them all hilarious names and playing the "dibbs" game. My all time favorites are the guys that wear wool caps in the summer time...WTF?? Does it make you stronger or something?

We have a couple of older fellows who like to talk about whatever it is you're doing...but somehow the conversation always turns into a lengthy discussion of their glory days. Ex: "I used to be able to lift that kind of weight before I tore my ACL in the state finals blah blah blah." THE FUTURE IS NOW OLD MAN!!!

How about people who talk on their cell phone while they're working out? Thats so effing annoying.


Last week this lady was talking on her cell phone while she was on the elyptical machine.....and the bitch was so loud. I really wanted to say something, but I didn't want to make a big deal out of it.
