    Hasn't been too bad at my gym. Luckily there's a gigantic newly built LA Fitness near by. I think all the resolutioners went there instead. icon_lol.gif

    LOL! Resolution season is almost over... Another few weeks and the ecosystem at your gym will revert back to normal! Mine is already tapering off!

    We always call them Resolutionists! Maybe it's a regional thing. Regardless, the wave seems to be subsiding now.

    I don't mind resolutioners so much. It changes the scenery of the gym, sometimes for the better. I've never really had a problem with them hogging up the equipment because most of them are really timid since it's their first time being at the gym. If they're on a machine that I want, I'll just walk up to them and ask them to work in or how many sets they have left, and they generally will give it up and walk away because they are intimidated.

    The only resolutioners that I have a problem with are the high school kids that come in groups and just talk while one kid actually works out, usually using horrible form and lifting way too much weight to impress his buddies.

    Haha a few years ago i was one of those "Resolutioners" and i ended up originally dropping 60 pounds. I welcome them, and ya sure the gym gets busy, but if more people start living a healthier life style then who cares.

    I don't see you as a true "Resolutioner". It's the ones that start and then quit after a few short weeks that I lump into that title. The ones we will never see again... which is why the season will soon be over.

    I welcome them and try to be friendly. There's nothing worse than arrogant asshats at the gym.

    Screw New Years Resolution. This year it's "New Year Actions" and I'm doing quite well.

    I don't like crowds, so this time of year is tough, BUT I remind myself that my gym makes it's money fromthe resolutioners who pay up front for memberships and then never come in. If they didn't exist, I'd probably have to pay a higher membership fee, and if they all stuck around I'd never get to use the squat rack because it's too busy.

    Plus, I rank the resolutioners as slightly higher than the people who complain about their bodies but never do anything about it at all...at least the resolutioners are TRYING to do something.

    I like it when people who want to make a change for the better.

    I don't like it as much when people make this grand gesture to do this at the first of each year.

    I am extremely annoyed when people who seem so motivated just give up in a few weeks. However after spending so much time in the gym, it's gets easier recognizing those that will last and those that don't.

    I hear you. Does it help that I was at the gym before resolutions were made too?

    Someone made a point to me recently when I was having a right moan about them that if it wasn't for the resolutioners, the gym fees would be more expensive. Hmmm.....

    Absolutely.... Got's to love all those members who subsidize me by paying their monthly fees while never showing up! icon_biggrin.gif

    There was a resolutioner getting a PT session at my gym and he was getting her to jog in the squat rack icon_rolleyes.gif I asked if he was finished using the squat rack and he just said "No". His name has gone on the list.

    The resolutionistas at my gym are still showing up, but their numbers are thinning. Unfortunately, the regulars who skip out of the gym for the first couple of weeks of January (to avoid them) are all coming back now too.

    Worst time: Monday Night. Ugh!

    That's because of weekend guilt and it's the Unofficial International Chest Day. It sucks in most gyms on Mondays.

    Trollileo saidMeh. Let them come. It actually kind of made me happy that most of the resolutioners have stuck around this year.

    I agree. I like seeing all the new guys. Though there is this one really fat girl who wears a two piece thing that is flesh colored and looks like a bra with shorts. Mostly decent guys, though. It's kind of fun watching some skinny guy slowly develop into respectable shape.
