    Most people at the Gym are pretty cool. The only thing that annoys me are those who use 3 or 4 pieces of equipment at the same time and won't let you work in with them (use the gear when they are not).

    Oh.. apart from people who don't shower or wear deodorant.. ewww i gotta share the same space with you matie!!

    What people wear... hey if they are comfy - no worries! icon_biggrin.gif

    #7 ugh... I have to carry two towels around because of this. One for the equipment and the other for my face. There's no way in hell I am going to mix the two.

    Any of the gym attire comments are really none of your concerns. People aren't there to impress; they're there to get a workout.

    Good hygiene is expected.

    I do drop sets - which means I uses up to 4 sets of weights at a time. Deal with it, I'll be 10 minutes; or ask to sub in.

    And i talk while i workout, because i've worked all damn-day long and i feel like being social with my gym partner.



    Things not to do:

    grunt/groan/yell. We fucking get it, its a lot of weight...the rest of us are trying to concentrate, and your arrogance is the only thing distracting us...from the other side of the gym.

    leaving all the weights on when you're done...the rest of us don't know when you're done your damn set.

    show up with a cold. When you're sick, stay out of the god-damn gym.

    *rawr*

    Lol, interesting first post on the forums.

    I think if you are noticing dozens of things wrong with others you are not working out hard enough icon_smile.gif

    Unless of course you work in a gym and have nothing better to do icon_smile.gif

    Except for 6,7,11 and 12, I couldn't care less about the rest. Please just don't stink up the place, leave a puddle of your sweat behind, be so loud as to be distracting or hog the equipment and you and I will get along just fine.

    16. Worrying about what everyone is doing or wearing to the point of compiling a huge list, instead of working out.

    bitter, table for one please?



    haha

    I do agree with much of that though. Although I do walk into the gym, do my thing and exit. I can't be bothered by other peoples annoying actions or habits. I do my thing and go!

    Fuck man I like working out in long basketball shorts -- esp when I am doing upper body work. I enjoy it because they are comfortable. So I am not 6'4''... I didn't realize I wasn't allowed to wear long shorts.

    Ew. Dude... this has to be one of the most negative, judgmental posts I've read on this site. What a joke.

    Hrm. Rather than being Mr. Negative, maybe you should delete this thread and talk about the things you like at the gym instead. Me? Every once in a while I forget my white socks at home and have to wear my black socks. I don't like it, but I'd rather wear the "wrong socks" than miss out on my workout.

    I would be delighted if someone asked me about it though. I'm a pretty positive person, but when necessary I can give better than I get, and would delight in the chance to be an asshole.

    I think gyms should hand out things you should do and not do in terms of common gym etiquette. I think a lot of people are clueless when they join a gym. Many don't know how to work out, why expect them to know gym etiquette?

    Somethings not cool in the gym...what do you think?

    That you might consider investing in your own home gym?

    Actually, we've had threads here about gross HABITS at the gym, some of which appear on your list. But gross OUTFITS does seem to be taking things a bit far.

    Uh... ripping on peoples choice of shorts is pretty gay.

    I agree with the holding machines, and talking alot and not working out.. but making a numbered list of guidelines strikes me as pretty dumb. The gym is a personal place for me, I'm not really concerned with what other people are doing.
