    7. The Shirtless Guy

    There was this one guy at my gym. After he finished his workout, he would start taking his shirt off as he walked towards the exit. I guess he has a change of shirt in his car or something. But I just thought he was showing off, because the cardio area is near the exit. So everyone got a good look at him as he walked out. icon_lol.gif

    1. The Girls Who Encourage Watchers

    There are some girls that just wear clothes that are too revealing. Like really short shorts where you see their booty peaking out.

    It's missing the personal trainer who spends more time looking in the mirror than looking at their client..

    Here in the SC we have some not so certified personal trainers, a great example is this one I saw today.

    I trainer asked a old lady to strap a belt around her waist and he held onto the belt in the back. He asked her to pull him for like 8 laps around the gym floor. At the end this ppor old lady was yelling so loudly they had to stop doing the "exercise". This is the same personal trainer who comes in to workout with a "workout buddy" and stares at his ass the whole workout session.

    Man RedBull - I'm gonna have to disagree with some of these! My kind of gym has nothing but screaming iron heads in it. They wear only shorts & shoes (no shirts) cuz it's hot (temperature wise) and they want to watch their muscles and their form to correct any deficiencies. If they see you do something stupid then someone will likely coach you on how to do it right (if you belong there). It's a rough place, but I like it!

    Cell phones, women, socializers, and any man not there primarily to sling iron doesn't belong. And while we're at it, any gym that doesn't have dumbbells that go up to at least 150 lbs is sorry!

    2. The Girl Watcher
    Edit:

    The Guy Watcher
    The guy who walks around the gym lifting his 15lbs from machine to machine while looking and attempting to talk to every guy in the club. Your window shopping of the weight room is making us all ill, can you please restrict your voyeurism to the privacy of your own home? That’s what the Internet and hot neighbors are for.

    The Screamers don't really bother me but the Weight droppers annoy me. Could you please set them down? Do I really need to be reminded that you need to pump weights that are too darn heavy for you to set down at the end of your set, let alone your existence?

    The Cellphoner is annoying too. Need I remind you why you are at the gym?? *lobs a weight at them*

    7. The Shirtless Guy
    Hmmm... I have yet to see this guy. I dont think they allow guys to work out shirtless at my gym. Depending on who it is, I don't think I would mind too much. icon_razz.gif

    Do home gyms count? My home gym will only go up to 125 lbs only because they are so costly. I am doing 10 lbs thru 110 lbs in 10 lb increments plus a pair of 125 lb dumbbells.
    I don't mind a little grunting or a small workout yell here and there but some guys exagerate it beyond what it needs to be. Dropping the weights, especially the dumbbells, really pisses me off because when they break or get loose most gyms will not replace them for a long long time. If I can grab the 150's to do a set of bench presses and finish by bringing them to my knees and then reracking them then I feel a juicing musclehead should be able to do the same. I think it's important to take care of the stuff so everyone can use the equipment for a long time. Dropping weights is what bumper plates are for :-) Sometimes heavy lifters including myself have to drop it from time to time but it shouldn't become habbit.

    From my own personal experiance:

    The guy with short shorts, who slings himself up and down on the exercise ball so hard that his shorts ride all the way up, exposing his jockstrap and butthole all over the ball. gross. wear longer shorts.

    The gym worker who can't wait until your finished using the bench and has to sweep/mop while you're in the middle of your set.

    The ones who want to strike up a conversation in the steam room or shower. No it didn't hurt. its just a piercing. Look it up.

    Amuzing that today I saw one of the "girls who encourages watchers" and asked a friend why she dressed like she does. Friend (who knows said girl) looked at me and said "I think she´s a high end hooker".

    I had not been expecting that. (And I´m not being judgmental). It´s just that sometimes, things are what they seem to be

    The people who try to out bench press everybody else and either struggles with lifting the weight or almost dropping the weight right on their throat and looks at everybody with an upset face because no one came over to help.

    The people who try to talk to you and hold a conversation when you have headphones on. (also in the shower, steam room, sauna)

    People who inquire about who did your tattoos and did they hurt.

    People who drop the big ass dumbbells.

    People who come to the gym looking like they just left or about to go to the nightclub.

    My favorite jackass is the one who leaves the weights on the machine your waiting for and then looks at you like he's doing you a favor by letting you use it when he's through. WITH HIS SHIT STILL ON IT! I usually just say, "DON'T WORRY I'LL GET IT!"

    My other favorite is the one that has the only pair of 50 or 60 lb dumbbells by the bench he's working on (actually has one leg propped on it yacking his happy ass off with his buddy) and when you ask to work in a set. He says, "I only got 2 more sets to do." I usually just grab em pump out my set and put em back. F@ck em!

    HAHA, I read this earlier and thought nothing of it.
    -But now I just got back from the gym and as I was walking out I saw this for the first time!
    Its written on signs all over the gym that you have to keep a shirt on.
    I think if he did it before 9 (during the rush) he most definitely would have been talked to.

    I vote for cellphoner as most annoying. Add to the list a recent experience - two women on treadmills talking to each other nonstop, on and on and on and on, could be heard all over they gym. talking LOUDLY in a sort of shout/shriek way. I couldn't stand it. I had to leave the gym.

    Guys who don't put the free weights back in the rack.

    Guys who sweat all over the benches and don't clean up.

    Guys who hog the bench press, who won't let you work in and who then spend five to 10 minutes sitting on the bench press staring in to space.

    6. Gym “American Idol” Person
    We’re are just as excited about your iPod playlist as you are. No, we’re just kidding. Please stop singing before we go all William Hung on your ass (we don’t get it either).


    I'm guilty of this... especially during cardio.
    Sorry guys. I'll try to do better. icon_razz.gif

    I click with the wiping down/towel thing. Despite the fact that I hear about it alot, I would say that 95% of the guys at my gym do not use a towel. I am one of the few and sometime the only one who walks through the gym with a towel

    Not re-racking weights. I thought that was GYM Ettiquite 101.
    I think the days of cell phones are here to stay. It's in poor taste but what are we going to do rise up and smash them.
    Women in the gym are 70% annoying. From voices to making it a social hour. Now some I see kick some major but and I'm happy for them.
    THe other is people who seem to not work out in any order what so ever. THey just jump from one thing to another and you can't get into your pace beacause of it. Granted I belong to a small gym so it's more evident.
