    This week's annoyance: Leaving weights sitting on the floor instead of re-racking them. Almost tripped over one some idiot left on the floor yesterday.

    Monday Warriors.... always crowded on Monday with people I never see the other 6 days of the week.... lol

    This is why Mondays are usually my rest days.

    Peeve: trainers who think the entire gym & it's equipment is their clients only. What the heck are other gym goers supposed to do?

    Mondays in January are the worst.

    Which is why I usually skip gym days in January anyway (aside from bad weather)...things are usually a bit calmer by the second week of February.

    I'm not a big fan of the dudes that come in together as a gang and think they own the place.... sitting around on equipment, leaving their belongings everywhere, usurping equipment for hours on end, extreme cursing and throwing of weights.... no one is impressed boys.

    Lol. It's like you're at my gym right now! Add in some grunts and you've nailed it.

    Anyone who wants to sit or work out next to someone and there are empty seats or treadmills and other machines out there, he or she is probably interested in you.

    Nope.

    Yes, why else would they wanna sit next to you if they are other empty machines available. Try to give me a good reason why not.....


    Not all equipment are created equal. At a gym I used to belong to, there was one elliptical that was worse than the others, very stiff, avoided it at all cost, didn't care if that meant I chose one next to someone else. I'm not going to have a bad workout so that someone else doesn't think I'm "into" them.

    3. I guess this leads from number 2, but when someone that doesn't know me comes in the gym and assumes that the short older woman isn't that serious about her lifting and doesn't need the heavier dumbbells/ squat rack/ cable machine just because she takes a break halfway through and takes a zumba class.

    I get something similar, someone who doesn't know me (and most know me at my gym) sees me lifting what they deem as heavy, comes over and "congratulates" me for lifting heavy and I'm like, "dude, that's my warm up, now go away"

    I seen something similar. A guy was training whilst a random guy jus stood very close watching. Then he congratulates him. Straight away you can tell he's a newbie.

    I also gave a fist pump to a kid whom I was spotting. bench press,one rep @ 300 lb., he told me he had been working towards it for 6 months. That was worthy of a single fist bump.

    Dang. Give him one from me too. Make it a double.

    Guys (and sorry, it IS the guys) who hog the weights and have five different sets around them when they're only using one.

    Not much annoys me. I feel so much better now that I choose to live in my own space. Having that space invaded is the one thing that annoys me, but it rarely happens at the gym. I understand that women at gyms are often hit on. That would annoy me.

    People dropping weights or talking loudly on the phone.
