    What's your biggest pet peeves from others at your gym?

    I'm sure this has been posted numerous times, but I'm new here so be easy, lol. Here's mine.

    1) People dropping weights. And there NOT heavy! There's people at my gym doing dumbbell presses with 35-50lb dumbbell's then they drop them to the floor all the time. Laziness comes to mind when I see this.

    2) Not replacing the weights once there done, yet making the next person take them off! Laziness again! And your at a gym to improve your overall health!

    3) People placing there personal items on a bench, while using a different one! One guy left his cellphone on a separate bench that he wasn't using, I was nice to him that day! I wanted to throw it across the gym!

    Those are my main 3, I'd like to hear what your guys and gals are!

    I drop my 45's and 50's and 55's when chest pressing/shoulder pressing/etc and will continue to do so. May not be heavy for you, but it is heavy for others and it's not like we are dropping them on your foot... so deal with it

    Yeah no kidding. So it's ok to drop 120 lbs DB's, just not 50s? lol!

    i dont mind people dropping them from a low height, without making too much noise, or posing a danger to others. but dropping things noisily from a standing position is unacceptable.

    When I can get a team together we play rugby with the Ivanko 75lb hexagons. Lots of fun but some complain that it poses a danger to others.

    Just yesterday a few skinny clowns at my gym was doing standing biceps curls with the ez bar. 5kg each side. When they were done after each set, they simply let go and drop the ez bar to the floor from standing position. I was so wishing it would land on their toes.

    The owner of my gym doesn't put up with nonsense. There are 24/7 cameras taking video so whensomeone doesn't put weights back on the trees or damages equipment by being a fool, she knows who it is. Do it a few times, youre gone.

    I always am respectful. But my brother on the other hand is a complete ignorant asshole. I sometimes walk away and do a random routine cuz hes like a **** on the rag. And another thing that bothers me is the small guys that stare and walk around with there chest out like there big...lol

    When you have some old dude on the bench, and cause we have tvs at a gym, he decides after his set "oh ill watch tv for 10 mins during my rest period" GTFO do your sets and move on other ppl want to use the equipment. Makes matters worse to i asked how many more sets he had left he replied gracefully just 5. Just 5!!! .............

    I'm not homophobic, but I don't like getting eye fcked at the gym (or anywhere), unless its by a girl. And I don't like when one person tries to hold down a few different machines/stations/weights at once.

    Skinny runts in tank tops in groups using all the dumbells and standing around them talking on their phones.

    People that dont put the plates or weights away after usage.

    People doing bicep curls RIGHT NEXT TO THE FVCKING RACKS!

    I have taken many of towels and phones off equipment to use it. The person normally comes back and pickups up their stuff next to the machine/bench and doesn't say a word.

    I just don't understand why it's so hard when finishing a set, to rock forward and let them land on your thighs. To each there own I guess. And maybe my gym doesn't have the best rubber flooring, because just dropping 50's it seems the whole place shakes.

    Omg... Can you step away from the rack please so the rest of the world can grab a bar?! Haha..

    I'm usually pretty easy going but that is super annoying. Also when I trip over dumbbells that someone just left on the floor. That's annoying too.

    Wipe off the equipment when your done
    Stop dropping the god dam weights they are expensive and get bent. the owner of the gym shouldn't have to replace them.
    Put the cell away. Are you lifting or socializing

    My peeve is the jocks who go around nude in the locker room and come up and talk to you while your dressing or undressing. So your sitting on the bench and his junk is right in your face as he talks to you like he is watching to see where your eyes are going to go. Really weird...Should I just hang my towel on his cock while it's there? What would you do?

    I need to get a membership at your gym. The only naked guys at my gym are 80+ years old.

    Funny you mention that. I just saw that movie for the first time. It was wild. Back during the slavery days when the white boys were diddling the black girls and the black boys were diddling the white girls. Hmmm Some things haven't changed much in the last 150 odd years..lol
