Gym Guru's and gym theifs!
Ok guys this is another thread devoted to venting frustrations at the gym. I dont want to see any in your replies .
When i joined my gym i thought it looked ok, it wasnt too big, wasnt too small, it had sufficient equipment and was REALLY cheap. Well since the holidays, my views have changed somewhat! For a start there is either one or many moraly corrupt wankers at my gym. I have only been there like 6 week and i have already had my dipping belt nicked! I foolishly left it in the gym one evening by mistake. I really diddnt expect anyone to nick it! and thats not all. In the last few months, everything from cable attatchments, to plates have been stolen, which really pisses me off! Instead of spending what little funds the gym has on more gear they are having to replace the old stolen stuff
I was trying to concentrate on a set of dumbell rows and some twat next to me is chatting on his phone as if he's sitting in a pub. Yelling, laughing etc. Im not an agressive person but if i was id have told him to shut the **** up!
On a more comical note, one of the older trainers who wears a belt for everything from sumo squats to tricep kickbacks was dishing out some advice to a tall skinny guy doing benchpress. In the older guys defence, the skinny guy had asked. But i almost laughed out loud as i overheard the conversation.
Skinny guy: Whats the best number of reps to tone up? I wanna get a bit of muscle but not too much
Old guy: Pyramid up from about 60 kg to your max at 90 then down again
(i tried to figure out how many sets he was advocating, must have been 6-7 )
Skinny guy: Yeah ok, but i dont want to lose my manouverability, i still want to be able to move properly and not get too bulky, what do you reckon?
Old guy: Youll be ok.
Now i have nothing against this old guy, he's the only person i have ever even seen doing sumo's, admittedly his form was horrible. But i sat there thinking, jesus christ some of the ****ty advice thats handed out in this gym!
Then in walked the largest woman i have ever seen! Must have been a hammer thrower, i estimated her arms at about 17" calves about the same! I have seen some hammer throwers before, i watched two of britians olympic hopefuls doing cleans and those girls were big, but this girl was younger and bigger! Anyway back to my main point. There are alot of tosser in my gym ruining it for the rest.
Someone even stole the allen key used for tightening up the dumbells. If i had caught the guy doing that and they had been smaller then me and i figured i could kick their ass then i would have totally had a firm word

get a new gym bro, i leave all my stuff against a poll when i get into the gym. i mean everything. my cell phone, my wallet, wraps, my hoodie when i get hot, and my water. and no one touches it. i mean most of the people at my gym all know each other but still nothing gets stolen. i think it could be cause most people in my gym know im the "Pissed off guy" so i guess they dont wanna upset me even more and steal.
onlything ive ever had happen was someone took my phone to the front cause they thought i left it there

sheesh, no problems like that here....4am is too early for theives to be awake and everybody else in the gym is still half asleep...VERY little conversation

the get a new gym angle is a little bit of a problem, as this is the only gym with space to do deads, bent over rows etc, while still having a cage, incline bench calve raise etc. The only other local gyms that are any good, have no clave machine and no incline bench/ or a squat rack with saftey rails so low a midget would still be in trouble should they not make the rep, no incline bench, a free weights area the size of my living room!
