    Dudes wearing baseball caps to lift

    Resolution exercisers who insist on going for the first time during peak hours without knowing how to use any of the equipment

    That guy who spends 45 minutes doing curl variations, checking for growth between sets

    Clicking your DBs together at the top of a press annoys the hell out of me. Throwing them down at the end of your set makes me want to kill you.

    the only people that annoy me at the gym are those who wear a very heavy perfume and they leave that scent smeared on the bench or seat. like last time i had to use a bench after this indian guy used it and i got all his cologne scent on my tshirt. to this day even a year later after millions of washes it still smells of him.

    It's worse when there is a person that stinks to high heaven like they hadn't showered in days and the smell lingers.

    definitely "the couple"

    there used to be this total bro frat guy who'd bring his mystic tanned peroxide girlfriend and she did nothing but bitch and complain about him wanting her to do squats while he flexed his biceps in the mirror and argued with her while they both hog the squat rack. I always dreaded seeing them if I didn't have my ipod with me.

    The author neglected to include the dope who uses the squat rack to do his stretching routine.

    And let's not forget the thoughtless oblivions who lay on the benches and other equipment between sets without even looking up to see how many people are waiting.

    This, gentlemen, is why I started running.

    I pass those who are slower than me, and those who are faster are serious enough about it to a) know what they're doing, and 2) not loaf around during a workout.

    Come down off your high horse, Thomas. Runners deal with their share of a-holes, too. For starters, how about that guy who walks his dog on the fishing-reel leash? You know, the jerk who doesn't think to reel his animal in until you've already tripped over the twenty yards of leash he's got played out?

    And what about those people who take walks on park trails with three or four generations of their extended families? It doesn't annoy you that they always manage to spread out across the entire path, choking it off as if they're the only people in the world?

    My list:

    -the jerks who don't re-rack weights
    -people who talk on their cell phones between sets
    -people who workout directly in front of the dumbbell rack, blocking access
    -guys who use the squat rack to do curls
    -high school kids that workout in groups of 3 or more
    -fat chicks wearing tight clothes
    -douchebags that load 6 plates on the barbell to do squats and use a 3 inch ROM
    -people that wear matching outfits
    -personal trainers who are out of shape
