Everyone at my gym does this. But there's a lot of space for it.

This is why I tend to stick to the Smith machine and flies. I would like to do straight bench presses more though.
Yesterday at the gym, I was doing ab work on the mats. Not too many people around, two or three of us, tops. About 200 square feet of mat space. A 40-ish year old trainer proceeds to move her charge into a position where as I come down in my sit-up, her charge (doing those butterfly swim things on her belly) will be molesting my head. I nearly swore at the trainer but ended up moving over three feet to one of the many free spaces.
