    Haters in most gyms. Previous one I was in there was always someone who would eyeball people. One guy got pissed at him and went up and asked if he had a problem, he looked like a deer in headlights and pretended he had no clue what was going on. Lol if I could remember all the funny stuff I've seen this would become a tremendously long post.

    Now the gym I train at now is more serious, the clientele is a bit more serious too, I definitely know there's lots of haters there too they just don't show it. Do dumbbell bench press next to a guy who happened to be using lighter weights and the jealousy kicks in and they leave after one set like if they're doing HIT but not to failure LOL!!!

    I don't understand the hater mentality, everyone is there to do the same thing, make themselves better. Makes no sense but pisses me off alot while at the gym. I had to stare down this one guy today cause I was just tired of it. I personally try not to make eye contact with anyone.

    I dont understand the hate. If i see some guy bigger then me pressing some absurd weight im gonna nod and say yo dude that was f*ckin sweet! And maybe learn a tip or two. Theres more than one way to skin a cat. We’re all good at different stuff.

    However if i see some frail dude acting like hot shit on a machine or bench i want to use, I’ll get uncomfortably close and put a little pressure on him to finish up. Especially if hes sitting on the god damn thing playing with his phone

    another reason why home gyms are better than regular gyms, hater population 0.

    Although I see having haters in your life is a good thing, they only hate you because they're jealous of you and that your not in the same fucked up situation as they are..

    The more haters you have, the more winning you do. it's the Hater:Winning ratio.

    I agree brother to be honest most are just admiring you when you look good...they all wish they had what you have and it butt hurts them...I just laugh inside...luckily they can all say I'm obviously on steroids that's why I look like I do and they don't because they are natty...and in need of excuses...

    Yeah but you know how it is Mack, its all ego. Its hard for a dude to check the ego at the door, its not in our nature. Doesnt bother me one bit- when i got back into the gym i was weak, like a 12 yr old boy. All i did was make sure one of those haters was around when i would bench, and ask them to spot me. Figure if they are gon a stand and stare, may as well do somethin productive. Did that with one guy for a few wks- he prob laughed at me at first, but once he saw increases every wk, i never saw him standing around anymore when i was there, he was workin

    I get a lot of people stirring at me and watching me do lifts. In time they do come over and talk but majority just stir and out of the corner of my eye I see them say to their friends "fuking hell have you seen him" it kind of helps me in my lifts to pish to the intensity I prefer training in.

    We only have 120lb DB in our gym so when I go heavy I duct tape 5lb plates to the ends to get my 135's. I definitely see some staring in the mirror behind me.

    I just think to myself where are the old jokes now?

    Never ever seen a hater in the gym, didn’t know it existed... yeah well.

    It is kinda fucked up, I don’t judge anyone for simply looking at me, that’s ok and doesn’t need to be hate at all.
    But there are some, but usually not that many in the gym, much more outside the gym I feel.
    In the gym, most that look will eventually come over, give a nod or whatever, something that shows its interest and not hate.

    Out in “nature” however,
    lots more haters. Usually men but even some women will be skeptical.
    The women change their tune if I talk to them. They just expect me to an asshole.
    Even met a couple of girls that afterwards said they only met me to prove that I was the asshole they suspected I was, and then we have a laugh about that, as by the time they tell me this we usually have had sex (or become friends, whatever happens) and all is right in the world.

    But my feeling is that the majority of hate and envy is outside the gym.

    I don’t know how many unfit guys I’ve seen inhale deeply and swagger past me on the street. I swear, if I had filmed it would look like a parody, and that they were just joking or screwing with me. But no, I’ve noticed that is just a sort of instinctual response in some assholes.
    I’ve tried talking to some that have done this, just asking them directions or something to see how they’d react and they behave incredibly nice then, almost in a perplexing way.
    And if I’m my usual courteous niceguy back to them it’s almost like I can see they get a hard on for me sometimes.
    (Not literally, hehe!)

    But I know I can look very aggressive (or something, idk, I’ve heard the word scary being used, which is total BS, as I’m a very harmless dude) sometimes when I’m lost in my own train of thought, and when I notice people looking at me then they usually shrink away. So it depends on my mood I guess.

    I completely tune out the guys in the gym for the most part..I’ll get a random guy staring like the guy yesterday couldn’t stop staring warmed up really hard got his straps on and 4 plates on each side to do shrugs ..or the guys who get on the bench next to me to do side lateral raises with 60’s grunting and snorting while I pull my 25’s to the sky..I try to break down as much muscle and release as much dopamine as possible in the gym ..my goal is not impressing anyone..I respect anyone in there working out properly and giving it 100 percent I don’t care how much weight they are lifting or what they look like..

    I don't know if this would be categorized as a hater but there's this 1 trainer in the gym that keeps eyeing me. If I help someone in the gym that's a noob he gets really annoyed. He acts like I'm taking money out of his kid's mouth's or something. The noob would hurt himself if I don't say something. Very uncomfortable lifting when he's around.

    That's because you are lowering his salary. If they could they'd copyright the facts and expressing them. He probably doesn't have much expertise to live off of beyond what you tell newbies...

    Fuck that! And I kinda know what you mean. I don’t know if it’s just cause they don’t know shit, or it’s because they might think you (or me) are acting as personal trainers of our own.

    I could kinda see the argument there, since regular PTs have an agreement with the gym and usually pay a lot of their salary to them, but it’s still very childish and only reinforces the notion that they don’t know enough about their shit to be competitive.

    A good PT shouldn’t be threatened by anyone. But I have encountered kinda the same, but maybe not that extreme. I say fuck him!

    Thats kinda typical scotch-ive run across one or two like that-they have the mentality that they are the "trainers" and they have the knowledge. Moreso than somebody that comes in to work out. Generally its the younger guys that react that way, and not all, but in general they have a sense of superiority because of the title they hold in the gym

    I try not to get distracted by haters or people staring or anything, but I do like to work out solo. Unless Iím spotting you or youíre spotting me, we likely wonít have much interaction. I know I have what others have called a resting angry face, I just look angry when Iím not smiling. Also I really try hard NOT to look at how much others are lifting, worrying how I look or that someone is lifting more is another big distraction, so I tend to focus solely on what I am doing.

    Well, I think I'm starting to get more haters



    Sorta



    More female ones at least - they don't really hate on me as much as the wife when she walks up to me & they have been starring me down for the last 45 mins
