Another poster here. Has a baby face kinda, kinda looks Armenian, wears baggy pants, looks like he'd be lost in a weight room. It was funny stuff.

bbaquiran, I'm open to being educated on this but this was nothing like I've ever seen. This guy just looked terrible doing it. And then he went off to curl 10 lbs dumbells, so.....

People that sweat like they took a shower and don't clean up afterwards. Who would want to use the airdyne after that?

I hate when people grab a set of dumbbells or a barbell (not olympic...the short ones with set weights) off of the rack and start curling/shrugging/whatever right there.

Seeing fat people put out minimal effort on cardio equipment makes me sad. It's great that they're trying to lose some weight, but I think they just don't realize that what they're doing won't make a big difference.

Fat people who work out once a week with their personal trainer and walk around like they own the gym.

big, hairy, sweaty bears hugging every one of their friends their while chatting them up between sets. These are dudes that in any other gym would appear to be big, mean, straight motherfuckers, but since i live in palm springs, that type of person doesn't exist.

Have you ever seen "that guy" bouncing the bar up off his chest doing bench press? I was working out in the late evening and I heard a loud cracking from a few machines over. This dude had been bouncing 315 pounds off his chest so hard he managed to crack a couple ribs as brought the bar down hard for the last rep. He said he was fine and immediately packed up and stormed out of the gym. I'm guessing he made a trip to emergency later that evening.

1. Leaky tire sounding people.

2. These two jacked dudes who are kind of weird...one late 40s and one in his late 20s but I dont think they are even gay (there are a lot at my gym) they are WAY into pep talking eachother etc.

3. We have a chick at our gym that moans when training with weights...its the funniest thing ever...the entire gym looks and laughs and she doesn't know.

A guy in his mid 40's who tosses a 45 lb. plate on his back prior to doing pushups where he has about a 2" range of motion... His bench is about a 4" range of motion... I see him about 3 times a week doing the same exact workout.

I've noticed a fat girl working out for about a year and a half now... she's getting better but I think she's having real food challenges at home.

Most annoying people at my gym: the trainer who wears neon outfits and who whoops all the time... the only trainer who apparently doesn't have to wear the uniform. The competition girls who leave their magazines and towels all over the cardio equipment and then spend 30 minutes chatting to their friends. The 16 year old kid who looks ridiculously out of place in a downtown penthouse gym (can't be anywhere near his high school). And the stinky guy who the staff had to ask to leave, as you could smell his BO across the gym.

My last post was the dumbest but the weirdest would be this dude training for a BB show. He's about two weeks out from the show and in desperate need to show off his striated glutes to the other members. He strips down to his half thong, large poofy socks, Otomix shoes and starts doing heavy squats while screaming at the top of his lungs.

The owner went over after a couple sets to enforce the dress code.

people who grunt/sounds like they are passing a kidney stone each time they lift people who fart in the gym - especially farts who smell like fresh-cut flowers

I could probably use some exercise, but these stories aren't exactly making me want to run out and join a gym....
