    What pisses you off at the gym?

    I can't stand people using equipment and taking extended breaks to use their phone!

    I'm not saying no phones, I use mine for music and switching songs etc, but no social media on the floor!

    Constant selfie taking has definitely added a new dynamic to annoying douches in the gym. I really get irritated by roamers in the gym. Like they just walk around haphazardly with no clear goal. They pop in on your rotation at the dumbell rack do a set of bicep curls, followed by roaming off to do leg extension then back to the dumbbell rack and do some shrugs. All while still standing in front of the rack so you can’t get or put up weights.

    I like how these social media apps suggest people based on location. I was browsing on the shitter and saw some 'fitness chick' posting stuff and it looked like it was from my gym. By the time I got to the floor I saw her in the same outfit taking even more pics!

    Needless to say, she'd best stick to posting pics of her ass and not her horse face!

    This drives me crazy I'll be moving around taking 30 sec breaks between sets thinking of my exercise maybe taking time to adjust a song on my phone
    I swing around and see someone on the cable crossovers my last exercise playing on their phone..so I get a drink of water walk around in circles do another exercise so I don't feel stagnat by the time the person leaves the crossovers 30 min later the blood in my chest has moved elsewhere and my good mood turned to bad..this is why I specifically pick times were few ppl are in there fri, sat nights no one is in there sun early nobody ..all the selfie takers are at the bar or sleeping in while I get full use of the equipment

    I like sat and Sunday at 5am, usually only me and one or two other regulars at that time. Weekdays it's tough but the morning crowd is usually trying to get done fast and off to the rat races

    When I just finished working out and the kids or woman tries to speak to me expecting a response.

    I would cancel my membership here if I had one.

    that idiot come in gym spend more time looking at muscles while working out and tell his friend to take a picture and then as long as he is walking or standing in front of mirror keep checking himself out. Plus what OBS said.

    How do you guys go to the gym?
    I make the biggest scene when working out.
    I grunt yell and curse sometimes lying in the floor drenched in sweat getting it all over my equipment ALL OVER and I am certain I could not train as effectively in public.
    Look at yates training with a partner yelling at him while he yells out each rep. That is what I want next. I want someone to yell at me in my basement. Shit, maybe I should set up a one day event at a nearby planet fitness just to show them what true failure looks like.

    Them veins on kel's legs... Thats cause he yells like a man bringing death each squat.

    One gym I go to called "the body shop" requires you to yell and scream, much like a prison yard. They play death metal and pink Floyd.

    Other gym (pf) I sometimes use in a pinch, won't let you super set or make a peep. Just as long as you grunt eating pizza, that's ok.

    My basement, well I shoot bullets into my heavy bag and beat speed bags while screaming "get some mother fucker, yippy kiyyi yay, bitch"

    One thing about my current gym is that it’s cold as fuck in there. They keep the AC low. It was 68 degrees today, I get a light sweat going and then I start freezing. I’ve complained a few times. It’s like stepping into a food cooler.

    Nothing refreshing about it for me. I get a light sweat going then the AC kicks on and it sends a shiver through me. My muscles will cramp up like nobodies business. I’m thinking about switching gyms because of it.

    Girls that walk in and first make a whole drama about them selves, taking their jacket off and getting ready. Whilst they scan the room to see and make sure "all eyes on me" then struts herself around like 'the only chic on a prison island and everyone should be drooling on them. I love it when they get irritated because I make it a point to immerse in music and concentrate and ignore them. They get so pissed, lol.

    Yesterday in the Gym older lady was sitting on the "seated leg curl" machine exercising very slowly while reading a book I needed to use it , I just shook my head and walk away. Little later one girl on the Elliptical was on the phone while actually doing it.I normally dont pay attention its just that Thursday is the carb load day and only thing standing between me and food is the bloody gym and I am cranky.

    I grab a towel, put one leg up on a bench and pretend Im drying my balls, like an old naked man does right when you walk into the locker room. Meanwhile my dong is hanging out the side of my shorts pant leg dangling in the wind.
