    People that use more than one equipment at a time when the gym is busy. Or when they leave for 5 mins and say " I was using that" when they come back. Yeah no, I am now.

    Just being crowded in general especially at a time (*cough* 5AM), when it should be empty.

    Some of the men in my gym are territorial about the free weights. We have two free weight areas, but I'm starting a barbell workout & they look at me like I'm not supposed to be on "their" side.

    People who do an entire lift set standing right in front of the weight rack.

    Dropping Dumb bells/Barbells and not re-racking them after use!
    Then there's the couples that pet n stroke each other in front of the mirrors and the people that spend more time sat on the phone or taking selfies than they do actually working out!!

    If class would start at 5:15 or 5:30, I wouldn't be late. I come when I can, and it's better than not going at all. :p

    Except yoga. That's the one class I won't go into late.
