General Gym Observations

I just have a few...but lets get a good list going.

1. Monday 5pm is the busiest time at any gym. Watch how at the same time throughout the week the place gets emptier and emptier and people get more lazy.

2. The most in-shape people (not necessarily trainers) are the most amicable people at the gym. They enjoy being there as seen in their results. The most rude and obnoxious are usually the people who are out of shape and don't feel comfortable.

3. Only 1/3 of people bring towels to the gym (Gross).

The dudes with the biggest muscles only do various machines, curls, and bench press.

The people who read books on cardio machines are always fat

Re: General Gym Observations

The skinny teenage boys will only do isolation exercises like hammerheads and curls.

Attendance goes way down over the summer months (I've never understood that)

haha...this is so true.


I have another: people don't understand the concept of removing freeweights and stepping away from the weight rack to do their exercise. I prob have 2 near head misses a day from gym yambags just trying to grab some weights myself.

Re: General Gym Observations

People are doing one of two things:
- Exercising
- Staring at themselves in the mirror

Re: General Gym Observations

Yobz,

Add "socializing" to that list and you're pretty much spot on.


1. Lots of people have no idea how to lift weights/do exercises correctly.
2. You can use the gym mirrors to check out girls without them knowing you're being a creep.
3. Personal trainers (at my gym, atleast) are a waste of time and money.
4. This is sort of a weird, personal belief. Middle-aged (32-40 I guess) women really want to get banged. They keep themselves in pretty good shape at the gym during the day while their husbands are at work. They read all those whack women's magazines about 10 secret sex tricks and how to keep your face looking youthful and crap like that, and they're always looking at/flirting with different guys at the gym. Their fantasy is to bring that trainer from the gym home and let him beat it up like she's 23 years old again. This is an unusual observation, but I see these women in the gym and it's all I can think.

Re: General Gym Observations

Women on the bikes/ellipticals/stair-climbers are almost always fat and ugly, while women in the weight room are almost always hot.

Re: General Gym Observations

The main exercise for women in the weight room is curls.

There aren't enough power racks in the gym.

Re: General Gym Observations

There's almost always at least one guy in the locker room who makes you feel uncomfortable.

LOL at you thinking you can't do either of these exercises behind the head.
