    More recently, there was that loser who put too much weight on the bar while benching and got stuck under it, only to be rescued by the cute girl in front of everyone. What a loser. Oh, wait, that was me. [​IMG]
    I hope you required mouth to mouth.

    Two words: sorority girls. I know of no other group of people who will put on a heavy load of makeup just to go take a snail-pace stroll on a treadmill and flirt with the resident muscle heads. Aside from the often nice eye candy, they are a complete waste of perfectly good gym space - and my tuition dollars!

    a few years ago, in the gym where i worked out, theres this teen-ager, who's probably a big fan of pro-wrestler turned actor duayne "the rock" johnson, who after doing EVERY DAMN set, would do all his hand gestures and poses.

    this is a fun thread, since I spent bout 5 days a week in a gym, I've seen a kinds of ppl and funny stuff. But nothing looks more funny to me than a fat woman in a spandax and think she looks hot like that........ looks like an overstuffed susauge to me.

    Wait, seriously? That's AWESOME. And dangerous. What if you're on the last rep of your last set of squats and you catch a glimpse of this guy? It's over, your back and shoulders are gone.

    It always makes me smile when I see people get on the treadmill for a grand total of less than 5 minutes then get off feeling completely satisfied that they "worked out....."

    There is also this overweight guy at my gym who does lever-seated leg curls for no shit about 45 minutes EVERY DAY. This is absolutely ridiculous and I find myself holding back the urge to say "what the hell do you think you are doing!" each time I walk by him........maybe he thinks you can burn all your leg fat by doing this?

    Where I went to University there is a 65% female student body, and since it was in Los Angeles, there was a large number of wannabe actresses, etc. Needless to say, my gym was ridiculously PACKED with beautiful women. Nonetheless, one of my old roommates was not paying attention on the treadmill and slipped in front of about 75 of said beautiful women....I remember walking around campus with him for the next couple weeks and getting a few giggles from attractive passers-by......


    Sometimes when my knee is hurting I can only get a few minutes in on the bike or treadmill.

    Should I stop for fear of you making fun of me?

    I think I mumbled something like, "thank you, I really though I had it by myself" while turning bright red and then quietly walking away with my head down.

    I don't know if it's the nature of the State I live in, but the women's locker rooms I happen to frequent would crush any of your fantasies. [​IMG]

    Don't be ridiculous......the people I am talking about are people I see doing this repeatedly; for instance, they might drive all the way to the gym 4-5 days a week to simply walk on the treadmill for 5 minutes, then do a few arm curls and leave......I think it is funny enough that they bother to come to the gym to do such a thing.

    I hear you, but I do have to give props to some of the folks who are grossly unfit and either physically unable to do more than a few minutes of exercise or just have no idea what they're doing, but are making an effort anyway. For some of these folks, it must take a real effort of will just to put themselves into a crowded gym in revealing clothes and subject themselves to the risk of embarrasment, whatever. For the folks in this situation who are genuinely sucking it up and trying to improve their health/life/whatever, I tip my cap.

    Some things I find/found amusing:
    1) A new comer on the treadmill on a really fast speed holding on (with all his strength) to the handles on the treadmill as he was going too fast and trying to stay on - and instead of running he was stamping a long. He should have just let go and run!
    2) A girl who went around doing little things like a few seconds on each weight and always went to the weight scales to see her weight. Was she expecting to lose weight every minute?

    This comment, and ones like it, are the reason many people are too intimidated to go to the gym - people they know that people are laughing at them. Everyone has to start somewhere. Truth be told, my wife is overweight and rude comments and stares at the gym have kept her from going back. Some people are simply rude and insensitive. Do you expect an entrance exam before someone is allowed to join the local fitness center? Or are fat, old, unattractive, and weak people supposed to just buy a bow flex and fend for themselves in the privacy of their own homes?

    Some of you need to stop working on the abs and work on your maturity.

    Okay, champ.
