Gym Pet Peeves

Everyone has a list of things that bother them at the gym. Here are some of my favorites in no particular order:

  • people who do not re-rack weights
  • people who sweat all over equipment and don't bother to wipe the equipment down
  • gyms that don't provide proper towels and disinfectant - that includes HAND SANITIZER
  • people who twist their backs into all sorts of odd positions just to get those 1 or 2 reps on that oh so impressive weight on the bench; yeah, nothing sexier for me than seeing a guy looking like he's going to break his back on the bench press
  • gyms that blast terrible music so loudly that my iPOD can't drown it out
  • gyms that push "personal trainers" on people who don't know any better; it's so sad to see the hardsell some of these folks get.
  • small crowds gathered around machines with no one actually *using* the machine
  • people who have a list of gym pet peeves
