What has been your most memorable moment in the gym?
Could be anything, funny, personal best lift, whatever. I'd say for myself it was one day where I had to do my next set of wide grip pull ups. All I kept thinking was how I didnt want to do them and that they sucked, and how I didnt feel like lifting that day. Then I looked up and noticed a guy in a wheelchair who was suffering from some really serious muscle problem, its like MS but worse I guess. Some guy walked by him and asked him if he needed help out of the wheelchair and onto the bench and the dude was just like "Nah, I got it, thanks anyways" It made me realize how easy I had it, and that a set of wide grip pullups was nothing when there are people who have to battle much worse. So it motivated me so much that I did my set and busted out so many reps I dont even remember how many I did. Normally I can complete 15 reps, but on this day it was more like 25 or something, then when I couldnt do anymore I just did partials until my grip failed and I dropped. My mind went blank during my set, my body took over. I think my lats were sore for like an entire week, hahhaahhaa. Definitely my most memorable moment in the gym so far. Anybody else?

when I first started lifting back in junior high I was 135 soaking wet. When I used to watch all the big dude throw up heavy weight on bench press I was struggling with the bar. I always wanted to start my bench press with the 45s on each and now I warm up with them. Sounds silly but I've come along way from the little kid with the bar Now my eyes are set on higher goals, but I accomplished my first hurrdle in weight lifting.

Yeah, thats a good one. I remember when maxing out w/ 200 lbs felt as heavy as the earth!! And the road from 2-300....my God that was tough

When I tried to incline press 135lbs and after the 9 rep I let the 45lbs plates slip off the bar 'cause it was goin' to fall on my neck. No one noticed 'cause I work out at a Hollywood gym where every only looks at themselves in the mirrors. Actors is what they call each other. This was about 2 years ago.

Man ,is it really that bad out in Cali? Are those people that self absorbed that they constantly look in the mirror at themselves? I couldnt live in a place like that. I just throw on whatever I find to wear, my baseball cap, and go hit the iron. I've learned a long time ago that you can't get a good workout in when you start worrying about how you look or what anybody thinks about you

I grew up in Bakersfield. That is about 100 miles from LA, but I now live and work there. I think it is just the area I live in. I tried going to another 24 hour fitness around my house but the traffic is a b!tch. 30 minutes for a couple of miles.

watching a "trainer" at 24 hour fittness 6 years ago doing bench press with 120s on a ball, the ball broke the next time i saw him he was in a full upper chest and arms cast. it was the sadest and funniest thing i have ever seen at the same time.

The first time I maxed out in 6th grade..my friends went first, and then me. Back then, I didnt really know how much weight I was lifting, I just said I repped 100. I always did bench on the smith machine then and I was like hey, it doesnt matter how much it is, I'll just say its 100. Turns out I was working with 55 and 65 lbs. My friends went. First got 115, second got 110. I had always told them I was stronger than them and I could get 120 or so cuz I repped 100lbs. So I go, with 90 lbs and I can't get it and I scream up..hhhheeeeelllpp. From then on, my friends called me "Big 80" cuz thats what I ended up getting. I have one that still calls me that. He's like man..you're so big now and I remember when we made fun of you for being big 80.

She was a female version of me sex/being down wise. It was absolutely fantastic.

Most memorable moment for me was about 4 years ago. My friend had set up an arm wrestle match between me and his older brother, who at the time was double my size, 4inches taller(6"3) and 5 years older. I was 17 then, but had worked out for a long time and have alot of natural strength. He has also worked out for a long time, takes alot of pride in it and has a huge ego, always wins in arm wrestles. We were both natural. When we begun, he looked at me weird as he couldnt get my hand down, very surprised. We kept going for about 4-5minutes, exhausted, no one won it was a draw. Everyone that was watching laughed their heads off, mostly at the look on his face and the fact that he couldn't beat a 17 year old half his size. His parents were watching too. Ofcourse anyone with an ego problem is going to make up excuses, he claimed that his diet has not been all that good lately. All in all it was very motivating for me and probably will not forget it.

The funniest memorable moment would have to be about this time last year. Me and my training buddy worked out at my home gym, it was legs day. He was squatting and i was spotting him. From rep 1 to rep 7 everything was fine, and usually is so i thought it would be okay to quicky turn around and have a glance at the poster of a naked woman on the wall, and i hear a loud BANG, i turn around and my friend had slammed into the wall face first as the weight on his 8th rep became too much and made him lose balance and run forward to avoid falling down, he slammed head first into the wall infront of him and started screaming for help, ofcourse he blamed me for it. I could not stop laughing. Also about a few months after that i dropped a 35lb plate on his toe.

This girl was having ass and lower back cramps... she asked if I would rub it out... after wards I asked if I could rub one out. There was nobody around and it was about closing time. I shut off the lights to the nautilus room and told her to get back on the leg curl machine. Well I wasn't able to blow one because I tried to put it in her ass... for some reason she got mad.

mine would have to be a couple months ago, when i was in the gym deadlifting. there are always a bunch of clown ass idiots in the gym and i have learned to ignore them, but this time it seemed like they were talking to me. anyway, i had my mp3 player on,so i ignored them but when we walked out my workout partner told me they were saying "so thats what really working out looks like", "pull that weight white boy!" and stuff like that. kinda made me proud of myself, and i was only pulling 295!

In the nursury
bj's behind the desk while swiping members cards
on every desk in the different clubs
every other place in the club (on the benches and mats)
I miss the banging, but not the bs w/ Ballys
The salon gives me some fun too

I posted this awhile ago but here it is...
I had just began lifting and i was going to a NYSC in danbury,CT. I had been going for about a month straight , and i was very ignorant and believed hat going in the sauna would "burn" off fat lol..Anyway the sauna room is only about a 8x4 room so its very small...when i go in there there are 2 men in their 40's sitting in there, after a few minutes one man gets up i hear the door open and he leaves, a few moments later the other man get up, but i dont hear the door open, so i lift the towel from over my eyes. This sick bastard was beating his johnson right in front of me !! Well i didnt know what to do so i panicked for a second UNTIL he leaned over and tried to lift the towel up off my lap! So instictevly i punched him square in the nose, he fell through the door and these two big guys ran in a nd grabbed me, they didnt know what happened. They thought i assaulted this guy for no reason, then i tell them that this old fvck tried to grab my manhood and they let me go...i grabbed my towel ran upstairs to the front desk and the cops were called..loli had to go to court for that shyt for 2 months..and this guy was married had two kids and his own buisness, like wtf?? ANYWAY thats my most memorable gym experience

I workout at the same gym, as King Kamali, or whatever his name is. He is massive,but makes all these crazy ass noises while he lifts with his 17 year old lifting partner. One of my dad's good friend is a Olympic Powerlifter, and he was in the area so he decided to tag along with me to the gym, and guess who was there.. THE KING. I made the most annoying noises as this Russian powerlifter lifted twice as much as KING. The look on his face was priceless, and better yet his wife gave me a look, like my husband can't get it up, and I wanna bang.

My most memorable moment happened last Wed. actually. This guy was about 2 feet away from me doing squats on a Smith Machine and all of a sudden I heard this sloshy farty noise. About 3 seconds later he ran out of the gym and into the bathroom. The dude shat himself. And to think if I wouldn't've forgotten my ipod that day I might've missed it.
12-06-2005, 09:15 PM #36

Gyms are getting notorius for this bullshit. Especially YMCA's and Golds Gyms across America. Around here the YMCA's are the worst. I dont think it stands for "Young Men's Christian Association" anymore, more like Young Molesting Cocksucker Association
12-06-2005, 09:46 PM #38
yeah there are alot of Gays at Golds Gym's i just joind a new gym today 24 hr there cheaper than golds and i was strapped for cash and pluse the staff at gold pissed me off

We use to have that shlt at ballys too. You would get a member that would come out and tell you about the shlt and I would have to break it up (no offense to gays, but I don't need to see that shlt at work)
2 guys in a stall(you got to love trying to be "professional" when you catch them in the act) you have to write that shlt up very carefully or ballys could get sued because you discriminated against them.
Old guys grabbing young female members and staff and then trying to say "I was being friendly", bullshlt. That's assualt.
