In my gym,idiots doing swinging bar bell curls, lycra, loud grunting, music on ipods too loud, Lack of cleanliness, not wiping the machines down, fat lazy people SITTING on the machines NOT doing anything. not sitting on a towel in the sauna (sign on the door), staff and tradesmen walking though the swimming pool and shower area with 'outside' shoes on... the list goes on and on...gym has just changed hands,it's now a Nuffield health and we are already getting the 'GP referrals', types that the gym can make plenty of money on whilst they 'the lazy obese low lifes' who smell like they have not showered for a month before training and then,STILL bypassing the shower, getting into Jacuzzi!!!
has different tiers of membership and I'm now paying more than the new joiners!
It's just a business to them, really, thats ALL it is to them...so i'm not surprised to hear this is happening in other gyms,not at all.
stream room refub due to take 4 days...started on 4th feb still not finished and not due to be working until monday the 18th.

1.) An audience.
2.) People asking for advice or assistance. I am not a friendly person!.........
So angry! LoL I agree with all your points...except maybe A/C. In the early days I liked to sweat. Now if I want to sweat I'll step outside into the Florida sun or hit a sauna.:)

1.) An audience.
2.) People asking for advice or assistance. I am not a friendly person!
3) Gym Bunnies! Once again, I am not a friendly person! Want to f*ck a mean old prick then go find your grandfather!
4) Gyms with anything concession other than water. Would eat during a sweaty orgy?
5) Air condition. Not for me.
6) Narrow or Short paths.
7) FAT PEOPLE. I hate fat people, they can better them selves in another place. But at least they try so I tolerate.
8) Concessions on the floor or cluttered pathways.
9) Tattoos. I guess I am just old fashion.
10) New people trying to hurt them selves. Good rule of thumb, JUST STOP.
11) Smokers. But this is everywhere, however in the gym they start sweating that stuff out and it just stinks.
12) Alcohol drinkers. They stink to when they sweat that crap out.
13) Compliments. Once again I am not friendly, nor do I need moral support and I have no ego, so touching me and saying good job.
14) Public affection, normally done by insecure men who want people to see what they ended up with. A whore who would condone such actions in public.
15) Names like Spike, Tiny, Bigs, Guns, or what ever else these boys call each other in the bedroom. Maybe it is romantic in the bedroom but in the gym it is funny.
16) Loud shit called Music, play it at a moderate level, that is fine but I listen to audio books and hearing Kill The Puppies music does not mix in well with Nicolas Sparks for example.
17) People having conversations 100 meters apart about some women or what ever.
18) A kiss ass.
19) Fake Cops. These people wearing FBI, DEA, Special Forces shirts, if you needed that to walk through the door then let me escort you to my truck. I always keep some rope in there and it would be more fitting around your neck than mocking good men & women protecting us with some ebay shirt.
20) White Power or NAZI retards. For some reason these ass clowns insult me by trying to converse with me like we shared a little Latin man in jail together. They are just asking to be turned into cut bait. (All German Gyms have these retards).
21) Hitting on my daughters. They did not show up to get f*cked.
22) Hitting on my sons. Educated men but still thinking with there penises,
23) Television sets. The world is still full of retards who can not function properly around these things when they are on.


Funny things I like.

1) Kit tards. Same as in the industry, buy a ton of restricting gear so you can look cool from the car park to entrance.
2) All those cellular phone junkies.
3) People who will offer there expertise, but get very silent and avoid eye contact when you walk by.
4) Condom dispenser in locker area. Why? Must be for Tiny & Guns.
5) Divorced middle aged women with short temper.
6) Scales on the floor. I think I last weighed in five years ago, who cares, know your body and get ride of that emotional crutch.
7) The elderly, they have more heart than these young kids.
8) Top heavy bay watch queers.

For me the best time to go is right after lauds, it is still very early and the early crowd is at the gym for the only thing that matters, them self. This way my kids are not there when I am there (if they are in country), the white power NAZI's still have not posted bail yet, the bling rock & rap stars are still sleeping from a late night shift at the Mac Donald on the grill, gym bunnies are still walking like John Wayne or still wet just passing out, tank, tiny, buck, hoss, and guns are still snuggled up in bed together and the fake cops are still trying on their latest shirts from ebay. Perfect time.
Brilliant!!

Yes you are right, I hear a lot that I have anger issues but I am still in the denial stage believing that most of the world has evolved to a friendlier place but lacking the basics like respect and manners. LOL

No not really I am just an a**hole with no excuse and happy with my life.

Nice. A man who truly knows who he is. More people should be so honest.

Barking up the wrong tree on this site, most these users are based in the UK. I doubt they would fly over to have a pump.

Gyms I use continually post motivational pictures and quotes on social media hourly, "train tonight, no excuses. Train or you'll always be fat and ugly", etc . . Not a problem with that until they shut Sunday, Halloween, Xmas week, bonfire night, bank holidays. Part timers.

Funny thread - I agree with most of it although I don't 'use the gym' anymore - I go to one that has weights over a few floors, full of the muppetry and annoyances posted about above, but I just walk through on the way to the top floor, which is a boxing gym - typically I'm the only one to use it which suits me fine.

The rest of my fitness regimen takes place in the large and free gym that is the Yorkshire countryside. Trail running, mountain bike, upper-body workout on a park climbing frame, kayaking or bouldering on the rocks etc
