Going to elypticals and there is 3 rows of them and all the men are in the back row watching your arse when you work out... that irritates me then they try and hit on you and you clearly blow them off and they still keep coming after you.

24 Jan
Yeah Nicole I bet that's very frustrating...don't let it keep you from your goals though
24 Jan
They can never stop me! LOL

There is this one guy who always takes his shoes off when he stretches beside me. Ok I understand your reasoning and thank you for wearing socks but YOUR FEET SMELL BAD. I feel bad for being pike.that but like seriously guy. Lol. And James, I so agree! The other day a guy left 16 45lb plates on the leg press...needless to say when I was done unracking about 12 of them, I was tired lol. Nicole, the same thing happens to me! Especially on the stair master. It's soo creepy! Lol.

24 Jan
Loll!!
24 Jan
Mario, are you that creepy guy that stands behind the stair master?!!!! Lol ;) jk.
24 Jan
hey girl from a guys point of view i like seeing hot women in the gym but your right there is a difference between looking and gauking
24 Jan
Nope... Don't get me wrong, there's some beautiful women who attend my gym, but it's really not the time and place for a pick up... I'm lifting heavy and grunting, hitting hard, jumping high... What kind of moron goes to the gym to stand behind the stair master to master staring, anyway?
24 Jan
Lol James, I have no problem with guys looking at me and the way my gym is set up, you can't help but be behind someone when doing the stair master. I'm talking about the guys that once you get up there, they immediately.come to the.machine right behind you when before.that, they were doing free weights. Lol.

The guys who don't know to wipe and disinfect their nasty sweat puddles off the benches and equipment for the next person.
24 Jan
Ewww especially when you see the sweat dripping off them as they walk away and then.you are stuck doing it yourself. Nasty!!!!!!
24 Jan
They more like need a janitor just to follow that one guy around. We have a few of them at my gym and it irritates me I normally grab like 3 towels for disinfecting things lol one for my sweat and one for their sweat and one just because you still think it's not clean enough! Lol
24 Jan
Nikole good idea on the third towel lol.
25 Jan
I don't leave sweat puddles but that's something I should work on just to make things sanitary
25 Jan
Definitely, dude. If folks wanted to go swimming, they'd go to the pool.

This sounds rude and selfish but when theres no open treadmills and people are walking on them at a slow speed! I want to tell them you can do that at the mall or store, some of us actually want to work out 🙎
Happens a lot at my gym

24 Jan
Lol yeah

I hate when two or more ppl monopolize two or three machines/weights at the same time and on top of that they take their sweet time.. seriously!!! There is other ppl who needs to do their sets and they r not playing at working out. -_- and I agree with the creeps stairing at ur behind... specially when is leg day with squats and booty exercises, I got used to the stares at this poit but is annoying when the guy is "working" on the machine right behind u and u dont even see him do a set..

Cocky people who go to be seen! They make tons of loud noises and grunts before they even start. Even worse when they use the equipment wrong in a way that they could hurt themselves!

24 Jan

People who save a machine, I go to a small gym. It is not a sun lounger at a pool! Also people who hog a machine/weights during peak times. Finally peop who speak to you when you have headphones on and are clearly in the zone.
And all the above!!!

Ellie, I feal as I have misslead you. See you don't have the full picture yet. You see if some one were to be in the gym with me, well then they'd either be working out with me. Or there for one or the other to google over... My gym is in my house. I agree with you tho, it'd be creepy for some random stranger to be staring at my back side, too!! But then again, I like the way I look and if you want to look too, I'm ok with that. Heck, I make 40 look good!!! :d

Guys who do quarter squats with super heavy weight. If you can't do a full range squat with good form lower your weight or stop doing them before you hurt yourself. And stop doing your abs on the power rack! Its for supporting heavy weights not for you to do 50 sets if hanging knee raises. Go to the captians chair a hole.
