    Jeans shorts, I mean are they even comfortable?

    I might also add dockers.

    And for the facilities: why bother playing a song if the sound nor the genre are unpleasant to the ear.

    Such a nice refreshing change from the usual answers on all those other "gym pet peeves" threads.

    There's a girl that wears heels at my gym. I think she's a stripper.

    Dude-bros that work out in groups.

    Guys that go to the gym to watch playoff games because they're too lame or too broke to go to a sports bar.

    Guys that think it's ok to do crossfit exercises in a non-crossfit gym.

    Inconsiderate pricks that blast music on their cellphone's speakerphone, instead of using headphones.

    People that think everyone in the gym wants to hear their awful singing.

    Dipshits that bring their protein shakes out to gym area.. and spills it all over the floor.. and don't clean it up.

    Guys that don't re-rack their weights. Or the ones that re-rack them, but in the wrong place.

    Being on the phone while on the machine.


    Not wiping down the machine after use.


    Slamming weights or dropping them.

    Hot guys with really fugly wives and girlfriends.

    People tying up the stretch mats with planks and ab work.

    People doing single pulley exercises surrounded by single pulley exercise machines on the only dual pulley machine.

    People supersetting on three or more machines which are never near each other.

    Trainers teaching their clients bad gym etiquette, like not re-racking, collecting nests of the most popular fixed barbells and dumbbells and leaving them in the most far flung, counterintuitive corners of the gym, and not letting others work in during their long chat breaks. Speaking of which...

    People's inability to let you work in no matter how nicely you ask, specifically:

    People with ipods:
    If you try and ask them (why else would you interrupt them fiddling with their playlists on their five minute long rests between sets?) they make a big show of dramatically peeling away an earbud and looking extra annoyed before telling you they have two more sets - if they even bother addressing you.

    Men training with women:
    One of them's always the alpha. If their break between sets is less than two minutes it's the guy, who'll act as if you're pissing on his leg and go all mano a mano to show off to the girl. If their break is longer than two minutes it's the girl, who'll deign to acknowledge your existence by shooting you a dirty look for disrespecting their relationship by daring to interrupt their conversation before ignoring you to resume her yapping.

    The dude-bros who will vary from somewhat in-shape to Keg McKeggerston, the unhealthily pudgy but still bearing done meat on his bones somewhere under all the blubber - who will invariably be the ex-footballer dispensing such sage gems as arching your back when tossing up 50lbs more than you should really even attempt to safely bench press.

    Oh and these guys will typically be sagging their basketball shorts low enough hide their underdeveloped spindle-stick legs, and also allowing any dun-lopped belly or love handles to gracelessly flounce as they walk about between the bench press and the decline press stands they are occupying like pigeons crapping all over the park statuary.

    People who don't wipe down sweaty equipment. I don't approve of the death penalty, but...

    I'm pretty lucky, we don't have that many things that irritate me, but I try and be a pretty laid back person. Probably what does it the most is when I have a certain number of machines left to use and they are all in use at the same time.... and there aren't very many people in the gym. Just coincidence and nothing that can be done, just one of those things.

    Hate all the guys grabbing my junk. "Stop grabbing my junk guys" I say, but they keep grabbing my junk. Some days, it's like I should not even bring all those bags of junk to the gym.

    Guys that use a machine and then just sit there while others are waiting to use that particular machine.

    Meatheads who work out in packs (and therefore needlessly monopolize the equipment).

    People who don't re-rack their weights (usually the aforementioned ^^^)

    Guys who grunt so loudly that it sounds like they're having porn sex

    People who have such rotten form that I'm afraid they will injure themselves and others; meanwhile the clueless trainers standing around doing nothing could at least provide the poor saps a few pointers

    Ok, I think that's the end of my gym rant. For now.

    The screamer, droppers the ones that don't put the weights back. You should ask your Mothers to come with you to the gym. I am sure this is the reason you can't ask like an adult in public.

    guys that wear really gay clothes and think the gym is just another bath house.

    guys that think dropping the weights is bad - because its a library.

    guys that are too afraid to ask to work in if someone is on a machine they want to use so just hover like a gay vulture.

    guys that think squat racks are really big bench presses because obviously all the equipment at the gym is for biceps and pecs.
