    when this older man got on the treadmill right beside me--keep in mind there are plenty of usable treadmills everywhere..... Suddenly I smell garlic. Like not just smell but its taking over the whole surrounding area . I try not to react. I start to breathe through my mouth...people this smell was so strong that when I breathed in I could actually taste the garlic. I couldn't finish my 10 minutes. I was so pissed....I mean why is it that people think its ok to smell bad @ the gym??

    Idk whenever i go to the gym i take a shower and put on some light girly perfume because sometimes it ends up in a hook up(my gym is mostly gay guys)
    and yes i feel your pain when people pick the machine next to you when there is so many empty ones....humans suck

    Was this at 5 in the morning? Well, at least you knew he was serious.

    Why didnt you quickly move to a distant machine for ten minutes? Might have sent him a message.

    Was it coming out his mouth or his pores? (I know...ewww.) Before I discovered my arsenal of chlorine fighting toiletries I'd reek of pool chlorine when I'd sweat.

    You should have just moved to a distant one from him.

    This has happened to me and I had to leave. I was on the elliptical and this guy smelled like he ate an entire garlic grove, or whatever they are.

    Conversely, I did fear the same for myself this week. I marinated some steak strips in a combo of things and garlic. I put massive amounts of garlic. When I got to the gym, my mouth just tasted like garlic so I was fearing I wreaked of it, too.

    Unfortunately garlic does not like some people. If I ever eat garlic, I have to make sure to put on plenty of cologne for the next few days because the garlic scent comes out of my pores when I sweat.

    I love garlic but I hate to be offensive so I don't eat it as much as I would like.

    I used to work at a gym. One guy reeked of garlic, he obviously consumed a lot of it. You could smell him coming before you could see him. Garlic is good for you, but that's overkill.

    I think I'd rather just smell the garlic than a gallon of cologne mixed with masked garlic.

    Now, if the story had been about an incredibly attractive guy that smells awful, then it would have been interesting. The way you tell it, it sounds like, "Why do ugly guys find me attractive?" My version is, "Is he still hot if he smells awful?"

    If you're young, hot and white you can murder puppies and smell like shit.

    OMG....I didn't even mean it that way--Here we go with "you must be this or that"...bla,bla,bla. It really does not matter to me what your ethnicity,status,or age etc is, I just quite frankly do not want to workout beside someone that reeks of garlic. That's it. Your reaching for something your not going to find.

    Well, then do explain how it mattered that the guys was older, if not to say that he was unattractive to you.

    That fact that there are a bunch of other open treadmills and he picks the one right next to you is absurd. Before I'm done with him he will beg for mercy, BUT THERE WILL BE NONE.
