    Those types of people is why I left the "fitness" gym in my neighborhood and set up a home gym.
    I am cool beyond all natural explanation.

    Ya they would probably let me/anyone else, but it's just inconvenient to have to roam around trying to find who is using what...ect.

    Far to expensive for the likes of me. It'd be nice though. More for convenience than anything. Be able to work out at any time I want, as opposed to right now when I am at the mercy of the people who are driving. If they don't go, I don't go.

    a while ago i was waiting for a machine, and i stood around a bit.

    this pretty big turk fighter bb was training legs on the hack. he was grunting and moaning as he pushed out his last few reps.
    the last 2 reps or so, for a mere few seconds, i looked at him.

    when he finished he got in my face yelling at me, that he was freaking tired of me and i needed to mind my own damn business and just piss off. I told him i only looked, only for a few secs, and walked off.

    this guy has the IQ of a mop and some serious fighting ability and a short fuse, so hes not the kind i want as an enemy. last time in the gym, he was training oh press with the barbell. behind the neck. with the setup in my gym this is very hard to do without a spotter. i was using the squat rack next to it. i was in between sets and asked if he needed a spot.

    he pretended i was air completely, and i just continued to train legs.

    minute later he was asking around the gym for a spot and got one.

    that some pathetic **** or what

    That is pretty bloody pathetic. What does this guy have against you? Or is he just a lunatic?

    The next time you see that guy in the gym just make him have a "terrible" accident.

    Just kill him while he is grunting so nobody will notice.

    I have the luck to work out in a small gym where people aren't as stupid as in those fitness centers.

    I'm the quiet and quick guy. I go in with my gym partner and we just do our thing then leave within an hour. I rarely socialize unless someone comes up and ask bout my workout.

    I'm the same. I got with my 2 or 3 gym-mates, and we do our exercises and leave. Not much time is wasted. But since there are a few of us generally doing the same shiat, it takes about 90 mins to get our normal day done.

    Im new to body building but ive been training in the gym for years and the worse ones are the two guys who sit on one machine for 35 minutes chatting between sets. I get the urge to go over and ask them if they would like me to bring them a blanket and pillow.

    i work at a gym, my worst pet peeves is when people do not strip their weights or leave dumbels laying around. that is extremly weak and a lack of good judgement. do the people who do that think they are better than everyone else? it FU*king pisses me off to the fullest! i would love to give them a piece of me or my mind any day. little Bi*ches!

    Man I work out at the perfect gym. Everyone replaces the weight, usually in the right order too (smallest weight on the outside). No yelling or slamming weights, never have to wait for anything. Everyone I have seen trains seriously... the list goes on. But it's a little to perfect and when my membership expires I will probably go back to the fitness center I used to work out in wich is pretty much the opposite.
