    I'm a trainer and have heard a lot.

    I was waiting on a client out front one day. Four indian "police" came in to workout. All of them around 300 pounds of fat, not muscle. They went straight to the weight belts. None could get it around their waist. One says, "they need bigger weight belts." Seriously? I had to run off fast to keep myself from saying something and avoid jail.

    Let me guess: They needed weight belts because they were about to do... tricep kick-backs? (You really need that extra intra-abdominal support on the erector spinae for those!)

    On a...semi related note, this guy at the gym today was wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with PEDIATRIC ONCOLOGY. At first I was like wtf...then I kind of melted when I realized it probably meant he worked there. He was already physically hot to begin with, so I just swooned at the handsome doctor who worked to help children stricken with such a terrible illness....love2.gif

    I hear a lot of bro science, in regards to workout techniques and nutrition. Always amusing stuff to overhear.

    Couple of days ago @ the gym, there were three people talking while doing some stretches, I was there but was just listening. The lady said: huh I am gonna cook tonight some boiled chicken and veggies for my kids, the other guy said sounds good, then the asian guy said...yeah I have to think about dinner for me and my daughter....this guy comes to the gym quiet often but he only does stretches and uses some machines, but never cardio or weights, it maybe explains why he is not well defined ,anyway. Then the lady asked him...so what are you gonna cook?, he said in bad english:" No cook...no cook, MacDonalds or Pizza", then everyone there started laughing.

    I heard a guy's boombox over the the gym music system.

    Seriously it was almost too comedic. He decided to come in and started by "pumping up" in a t-shirt for ten minutes to fluff up those muscles of his. Once he must've felt he was ready to put on a show, he then changed into a singlet and came out with his boombox from the locker room. Turned it on full blast and lifted for another ten minutes before he realised that everyone else was snickering at him. It was a Sunday and so the place was unstaffed as it is a 24-hour client self-access joint. I just call the guy BB-Dbag (that's BoomBox DoucheBag). Apparently he thought his Nicki Minaj remixes were what we all wanted to hear!

    "I need to get a job"
    "Like at a shop?"
    "You know how much money I can make stripping?!"
    "Uh..."

    A couple weeks back, a guy I see on the regular at the gym came up to me. And this is the dialogue that followed...

    Guy- "Hey man, I see you here all the time! Just wanted to say hi."

    Me- "(chuckle) Hey, yea, I'm here quite often. Seems like you've been coming more as well."

    Guy- "Yea, I need to lose this gut. What's your secret? I've seen you gain a lot of muscle in the past few months... Do you juice?"

    At this point, when he asked me if I juiced, I couldn't help but laugh. Yes, I have gained a lot of lean muscle mass, but in no way do I look like I've been taking steriods! O, but it get's better...

    Me- (laughing/in shock) Ummmm... noooooo. I just eat a lot, and work out 5 days a week with some cardio in there. Plus I don't drink or eat junk. (He was looking at me at this point with, "yea right" eyes lol)

    Guy- "Yea, maybe I should cut down on the amount of fast food I eat in a week and going out drinking with friends."

    After he said that, I laughed, and all I could muster up without sounding like a complete asshole was "hmmmmm" with my head shaking up and down, in a that is correct manner!
