Can I Eat My Pizza While I’m On The Treadmill?!

Since I am always in the gym, I feel like I’ll never run out of things to talk about there. There’s always someone or something to laugh about. Here are my latest annoyances from my time at the gym:

  • Hanging out in the locker room with their privates hanging out – Put some pants & a bra on please! While it’s perfectly acceptable to walk around without any clothes on in the locker room, just don’t do it for prolonged periods of time. Everybody doesn’t want to be exposed to a nude 80-year old. (No offense grandma!)

  • People who come to work out in groups – In my experience big groups of people tend to barely work out and spend huge amounts of rest time chatting about stupid stuff very loudly. All while “using” the last remaining bench in the gym.

  • Curling in the squat rack – You can do bicep curls just about anywhere in the gym, but the squat rack is the only place you can do squats. So when someone is doing curls in the squat rack and preventing me from doing squats it pisses me off. Sometimes the rack that people do squats in can be used for curling. If the gym is pretty empty, then fine but if you’re taking the last rack for your curls then that is very annoying.

  • People who wear dumb muscle shirts – Some of those shirts look so tacky with gaping sleeve holes down the sides, or are cut shorter than they should be. Those guys usually grunt loudly as they do maybe 8 reps of bicep curls and then throw the weights to the ground. That 1 set of bicep curls is usually followed by some mirror-flexing which is so pathetic.

  • Loud music at the gum – Some aerobic classes leave the door to their room wide open. Not everyone wants to be subjected to the instructors’ questionable choice in music. I guess every gym can afford soundproof walls, can they?

  • I hate when people stand by the machine I’m using & wait for me to get done – It makes me feel like I’m inconveniencing them even though I got there first. Plus now I have an audience so it makes me feel like I have to work out extra hard on that machine.

  • When people look over at my treadmill to see my stats – I’m sorry, I didn’t know that I was in a competition! Why on earth does a total stranger need to know what I’m doing & how fast I’m doing it?! Just like in the men’s room – keep your eyes on your own stuff (or at least towards the wall in front of you)

  • That new gym member who clearly looks lost – I feel like there should be a tour guide at every gym. That guide would be responsible for directing new members or at the very least provide gym orientation on their first day. It can be difficult navigating your way around a big facility. Not to mention, when you’re lost you can get in everyone else’s way
