Re: Some People At The Gym

The person that is the most annoying:

The guy who does a set of bench/squat and then talks about how tough it was and takes a 5 minute break in between sets. Way to improve yourself jackass.

Re: Some People At The Gym

I usually have a pretty good time at the gym.
I've only been annoyed twice, once was when this kid came in and he was incredibly skinny, like skin and bone, possibly something wrong with him and all these douch bags are making fun of him. Like, thats why he is here, to get bigger, give the kid a break.
Another time was when I wanted to use a machine but there was this guy on it and he got off for a moment and I went to do something, he went to another machine, did like, two reps, went back to the machine I was going to use. Yah I understand some people like to do that and its a way to train or something but dont hog two machines when someone wants to use one.

Re: Some People At The Gym

What annoys me is when there is always some small punk trying to act like he can lift more than you can when you know hes just gona hurt himself.

Like for example I was doing the Dumbell Press and I was using two 80 pounders and after I finished my set this kid Alvin who is like 130 punds goes I can do that, and he never before even did those. So he tries it and when he lifts it up they fall because he couldnt hold them and one side of one of the dumbells smacks his face and omg it fucked him up really bad.

Re: Some People At The Gym

I love my gym. Alot of great, friendly people.
Of course I checked out 4 others in the area before settling on this one.
No kids at mine (persons under 21) Mainly Id say they are 23-35.
Just a different atmosphere from some of the others.
Maybe you just need to search around and check out others if there are anymore in your area.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

BB4B makes a great point. If you head to the local YMCA, it should be expected that you're going to get some clowns in there. Anybody that goes to a university with a somewhat extensive athletic program should really look into getting into the same weight room that the athletes use. Sure it's probably going to cost you, but you don't have to worry about a bunch of inexperienced lifters getting in the way.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I go to the local YMCA, and a lot of those guys are quite helpful. I've had no problems as of yet, and I usually partner up with one of the bigger guys for benchpressing. They're immensely helpful, and are not annoyed by the fact that this kid (me) wants to be there. I've only had minor problems, but they were with kids thinking they're big, bad, and tough. Some of the trainers will even help you if you're struggling, and I've made acquaintances. Perhaps it's just my YMCA.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

My gym is pretty good. Its a "fitness center" so no crazy weights and not too many roid heads in there. I joined it because it is 24hours, and was new in town at the time. I'm one of the first members actually. The manager and I are good friends, and if I tell her someone is acting like a dumbass and leaving weights laying around or hanging out instead or working out, she will have a talk with them. I've got two kids kicked out because they would just come in and sit on the benches and text on their phone. She told them if they did it again to hit the road. The next day, same thing, she got it on the cameras, showed them, told them to leave.

There is another gym about a block away that is for the more "hardcore" guys. Its nasty and weights are all over the floor. I was going to join it because it was the only gym in town until the 24hour one came along.
