What's your biggest pet peeve? What annoys you most when working out at the gym?
People who say they are using more than one machine at the same time.
People - who when you ask them how many sets they have left say they just started - I didn't know just started was a number
People who SCREAM while working out and then slam the weight down after the set and they're lifting 20 pounds
People who sit on a machine talking on a cell phone and then get annoyed when you ask if you can work in with them
1. People who stand by the station they are using and take 10 minutes between sets to bullshit with people like it's happy hour at a sports bar!!!
2. People not cleaning up their sweat!!!
Scout200 - good to see you here! Usually, I catch you at IF.
People who really don't know that a power rack is not required to perform barbell curls
bitches that do 3 machine excersises with horrible form while texting and then leave. i work in a gym so i see this ALL DAY
My local gym was closed for some reason for a few days last week so I went to another gym. While there these two ladies ( sexy as hell but dumb as shit ) proceeded to hang on and around the smith machine I wanted to use just talking to each other and texting on their damn phones. I asked them if they were done with the machine and one seriously replied "we will move when we are done talking".....there's my biggest pet peeve. Stupid people.
Oh and my apologies to any women who may take this as an insult. In no way am I trying to bash on women at the gym. Guys do this stupid shit too. I just don't let them get away with it as much cuz at least the women give me something to look at when I'm doing my cardio so I don't quit before my session is up. :drooling:
1. A person that is using 1 machine on the other side of the gym, but has his shit on another machine because he'll be using them eventually. AND a person who keeps his stuff on a bench even though he's not using it.
2. People that use the squat rack to do barbell curls.
3. People that talk on there phone. And worse yet, while doing cardio.
4. People that don't clean up after themselves
Ha, nicely said!! I'll also add:
-People who camp out on a piece of equipment just to chat.
-Horrid top forty music - that you hear over and over and over and over again lol
-People who talk non stop on their phones
-Those who wear cologne to "cover up" their BO - I walk away gagging with tears in my eyes from the stench.... lol
When people don't even bother to ask if you're still using a station,and they just walk up and start using your station after you just finished a set.
people that go to the gyn to socialize more than train
People who do not clean up after themselves.
Gym rats who eye fuck you.
This is why I have a home gym.
Dropping dumbells is teh worst for me ...there is no excuse for it. It should never get to the point where it is safety issue that you need to drop dumbells on the ground. To me it is a classic sign of an inexperienced body builder. It messes up the db's so that when i use them i need to tighten the plates together...
hate that...but it is funny to see the look of fear when i ask what they are doing hahah
-When guys line up behind me while i fill up my water bottle on the little fountain leaving the big fountain empty.
-When ladies obviously try to get your attention by working out in your "view" as you traverse the gym. Hot chicks just doin their thing make me lift more...but sluts who follow you around are distracting.
-when some 400 lb morbidly obese dude is doing arm curls...get to the cardio room already!
-poor form like when guys bring down the bench bar to only 6 inches above chest...or better yet when you hear some loser telling another loser how to do a lift and they are totally wrong
-out of shape personal trainers
Old men who put their sweaty balls on the plastic seat without using a towel. "Get your old balls off the seat!!!"
Know-it-all assholes who don't know shit... but still want to tell you what you should be doing.
I hate it when people refuse to use good hygiene. I understand that you sweat when you workout, but when you stink before you ever get to the gym, seriously dude you smell like a bums nut sack.
So much whining in this thread.
Complaining about guys smelling bad I can understand, but people talking on their phones, people with bad form, grunting, seriously? I guarantee your gains would increase if you people stopped worrying so much about what everyone else is doing.
I have no pet peeves about a public place that I have absolutely zero obligation to go to. If you don't like it in the gym, leave. There are so many people that would appreciate the extra space.
