I can think of many more annoying people at the gym then whats on that list, here is just a few of such people that are on the top of my list. - Sleepers: If you need 15 minutes rest or a siesta between each rep, get off the bench or machine and let someone else jump in. - Grunters and excessive weight lifters: If you find it necessary to lift a small VW please do so with out screaming and or proceed to drop it on the ground after 2 reps and shake the building. - Lazy people: If you find it necessary to put 8 plates on a bar, please re-rack the weights. Same goes for the dumbbells, ez curl bars and what ever else you where able to drag over. - Smokers: If you need to go outside and light up after every set, then come back in right next to where I'm working out smelling like an ashtray, please get a home gym. - Excessive sweaters: Sweating during a workout is great, but I prefer to bath in my own sweat not the person before me, bring a towel and wipe up after your self.
the dudes who pile on the weights at ever machine/free weight area's and don't take them off when there done. They just walk away and force people to remove what they had on there before.
The guy who seats a gallon of sweat on the bench/machine and doesn't clean it when he's done, even though there are paper towels and solution about 5 feet away on the wall and a sign thats says "Please clean equipment of sweat when your done".
shaving in the steam room or sauna, jumping in my lane in the pool, when there are plenty of empty lanes, "visiting" in the locker room(need a sign " Eyes straight ahead, no talking", Cell phones in Pilates, making waves in the cold plunge pool, clear your own table in the snack bar, the annoying ladies in the bar after their tennis league games. ......thanks, I feel better
The talkers. People who seem to be there only to socialize. Call me anti-social but I go to work out. I put on my IPod and try to zone out and get through my cardio or lifting without someopne hanging around yakking
