1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I guess every gym has their own 'stand in front of mirror doing airkicks and re enacting jeanclaude van damme moves' kind of guy. The really make me wonder if they could actually win a fight. It would be fun if one of the real fighters in the gym would just pass by and knock mister fancy moves out with a suckerpunch.

    My Histology prof first term in med school was a super nice guy but I think he was a bit crazy. He believed in some kind of "freestyle" punching work on the heavy bag. Seemed to just do whatever the hell popped into his head. One time, I saw him hit the bag a few times and then do a 360 turn and punch it some more. Wasn't annoying or anything just really random and funny.

    Happened last night. Two Guys having a conversation in the showers with each other about girls they want to fuck at the gym. Obviously, the showers are individual, but it's still weird.

    One time I was walking past the Infinity pools and an attractive girl in a small bikini stepped out, so of course I looked. Good thing I was. The second she stood up, down she went, unconscience. She fainted. Apparently she hadn't eatten all day, so naturally a workout was in order!

    There is a trainer at my gym that is very into the movie 300. He yells at his clients "You're a Spartan", "Go Spartan", for motivation. It's annoying at times but can be entertaining when he's training the 100lb asian girl.

    This 40s Asian guy with a mental grin, 80s glasses and bad clothing does his thing on a stationary bike nightly while his head is resting on the handlebars - he has a towel there for cushioning. His forehead never comes off the handlebars for the hour he is there.

    women reading on the thigh abductor. a) it's the least of most of their problems and b) bitch isn't working hard enough if she can read while training.

    1) One day I was doing snatches from the floor on the olympic platform. I go for maxes when I pull from the floor.

    Well, some guy decided it would be a good idea to cut across the back of the platform... In the middle of my lift... Which blew my concentration and I didn't catch the weight very well, which sent me over backwards and the barbell nearly took him out. The look on his face as he realized I was about to beat him with a 20 kg plate was pretty funny. He got away from me fast. I was really pissed at the time. I still kind of get mad because I could have gotten hurt. Yeah, see, now that I think about it, I really should have beat the crap out of him.

    2) I saw a woman, probably about 50 or so, wearing the old 80s style workout outfit, the spandex shorts and tshirt with the one piece bathing suit thing over it. She really looked bad, like she spent way way too much time in the sun while she was younger, and then got plastic surgery. She had some 80s hairstyle too. Kind of a mess to be honest, not at all attractive in a cougar way.

    I noticed that she would slow down whenever she would walk past any of the young guys that were really into working out (and thus had well muscled bodies), she'd stop and face away from them, and bend over to tie her shoe or something. She'd bend over real slow, trying to be sexy and get some attention. She adjusted her leg warmer in front of me. I was a bit repulsed.

    She then moved on to her next victim, a guy spotting his buddy on the bench press, and starts tying her shoe. Spotter is trying not to laugh, and as the lifter finishes and sits up, he looks right at this lady's ass in front of him and says "aww damn" and the spotter starts cracking up. Never saw the cougar-wannabe again.

    The cardio room at my old gym was pretty quiet since the television audio was run through the machines, so the only sound was the constant hum of the treadmills and ellipticals.

    Every now and then, though, the dull drone would be pierced by a middle-aged lawyer type screaming "Oh, Baby! Yeah!" to whatever 80s pop song was on his iPod.

    "The altercation occurred at an Equinox fitness club on the Upper East Side in August. Mr. Sugarman, a 49-year-old senior partner at an investment firm, was yelling things like "You go, girl!" and "Good burn!" in spin class, and Mr. Carter could not take it anymore. He twice asked the instructors to get Mr. Sugarman to quiet down, according to trial testimony. But after Mr. Sugarman continued, harsh words were exchanged.

    Mr. Carter, 45, a stockbroker, stormed over to Mr. Sugarman's bike and lifted it, crashing the back of it into a wall, witnesses said. Mr. Sugarman said the force of the bike dropping to the ground caused a herniated disc in his neck."
