Something that pisses me off at gyms /rant

People that as Rick and Bubba would say: Go to a business owner and ask him if they can PAY HIM to move HIS heavy equipment around (also known as a gym). That part is not what pisses me off, it's the people that pay money, decent money to do this, and do it so ineptly that it's almost weakening to just watch.

Tonight at the gym, some little Mexican dude (yes, I said that derogatorily because he's probably illegal), was attempting to "work out". For instance, he was using his ENTIRE BODY to do a pull down exercise. He stands around "willy nilly" trying to do free weight exercises, pesters all the women there even though he probably can't understand a word they say to him, and I know they SURE can't understand him. The whole time I'm just thinking, why in God's name are you even here? Hoping to make it in good with an INS agent's daughter or something? Trying to impress her with the weight of your body pulling a weight in a machine?

I've got an elliptical here at the house that I rock for at least 30 minutes every day.

Yeah, I would much prefer buying my own equipment and using it. I'd eventually save money as well, but I don't have the space right now

I'm figuring on investing about 2K one day in gym equipment for myself so I don't have to deal with the public while working out too.

Re: Something that pisses me off at gyms /rant

i also hate people who dont know what they are doing, obviously on roids, and/or people who think they are more built than they are.

for example, if you do tricep extensions with 200lbs+ you might need to re-evaluate your life. honestly, im a pretty buff guy and i am a regular at the gym... but there is no legal supplement (not even creatine) that can pull off that kind of gains.

another experience for me were these 2 kids who were making all kinds of grunts, inspirational pep talks before each rep and high fives while i was curling more than they were benching (50lb dumbells versus their 40lbs). i prefer to be silent, do my thing and get out without eye contact or a single word spoken. if you are being loud and obnoxious in the gym... its so self degrading.

also, if a man is incredibly ripped and they have tiny legs its a sign of steroids.

Re: Something that pisses me off at gyms /rant

I need to work out, and damn I wish I had my own weights, cause I don't have the money nor anyone to go with to work out. I just need to get off my *** and do it the old fashioned way. God I need to get back in shape.

i agree, but see, they all work at my gym, so then they stare at you as you are trying to work out, or worse yet, swim. every time i would swim a lap two of them sat in the other lane talking about me (i understood what they were saying), so when i responded in spanish for them to **** off, they got the idea

When you become a cop, you better get on an episode of Cops or get some sweet dash video of you kicking some ***. I want to see that so badly

Thank you. That's exactly how I operate. I go in, do my thing, chat with buddies, but mostly don't talk to the other people there. I do my thing and don't have to make a big deal.

A lot of the ripped guys also think that everyone must be working out to look like them. No. I work out to be quick and NOT slow bulky. Sure you can bench 12 times your own weight, but let's see your slow *** get on a treadmill and run too.
