    Heh, when I read the subject line, my first thought was "There are gyms that let you take your pet with you? Damn, I doubt my cats would be into that, though. Pretty sure they'd hate everything - and me for taking them there." :wink:

    You don't take your cat to the bird gym??

    People that load up the leg press with several 45lbs plates and do a knee bend as a rep for ego boosting. QUIT WASTING USE of 45lbs plate that you can't press!!!!!! Others could use those 45's for legitimate lifts.

    • People who don't wipe the equipment down when they're done.
    • People who don't put their effing weights back!!!!

    These.
    And “that guy” who takes 20min breaks between sets but won’t vacate the bench / squat rack / machine to do so preventing others (ok, me) using it.
    But that's relatively easy to fix. You ask to work in, or just stand there and tap your foot. :D

    so one of my pet peeves are people who, when you ask them to let you work in, look annoyed and act like they're doing you some huge favor instead of apologizing for monopolizing the equipment for 20+ minutes.

    Who gives one flying *kitten* what they look like? Just do your work.

    People that walk over the platform I’m on when I’m about to clean or snatch. Had a guy walk into the bar when I stood with it on my shoulders and knock me flying (I’m quite small). Didn’t think he was looking and I couldn’t actually go anywhere so I just stood still and he still walked into the bar.

    People that hog the nice bar collars 🤣

    These are actually pretty nice (same thing my gym has for general use). I bought a set and keep in my gym bag for when no collars around.

    Yes they’re the ones I like! The metal spring collars are actually better / stronger but good grief they can be a nightmare to get off. Nothing worse than deadlifting 100kg then struggling for 5 mins to get the blasted collars off whilst my friends kill themselves laughing.
