Obnoxious Gym Behavior
"Oh no no, there's no else here but you. Take over!" and more passive-aggressive thoughts from a gym rat.
- •Dropping heavy weights without regard to clanging, both in free- and machine-form.No no, that crazy clanging didn't bother us at all.
- •Loud exclamations of any kind.UGHHHH! WOOO! YEAHHHHH! We want to grunt along with you. Louder, please!
- •Leaving the windows open and the AC blazing.This really applies to apartment gyms... Oh please customize the temperature solely to your liking AND waste energy. We like that!
- •Taking up a million pieces of equipment at once.Your 10-step circuit is way more important than our workouts. You do you!
- •Lecherous stares.Subtly is def not something a lady appreciates. Look on!
- •What did I miss, friends? I'm obviously needing a vent sesh, and I bet you do too! ;)
- •Attempting conversation with someone wearing headphones on the treadmill next to you.Oh yes, random stranger, please tell me more about the tricks you taught your cat. I would much rather listen to that while I run than Beyoncé.Suggested by @gabimoskowitz
- •Bringing a large Bluetooth stereo to your building's gym and blasting hip hop while everyone else politely wears headphones. (Note: I seriously love hip hop but this is just silly)
