Worst gym experience

Monday, January 14, 2013

I respect everyone at the gym but today omg!!! This guy walks away from a machine to socialize i did not know whether or not he was coming back and i waited a few mins just to make sure. He left a towel but it looks like the towels they give us at the gym anyway i put the towel in the hamper and the guy gets an attitude with me and preaches to me about gym manners i go to the gym to workout not socialize i dont hog machines im not using and if anyone wants to use a machine im willing to share anyway i asked if he was using the machine still of course he said yes and proceeded to talk to his friends im like omg how old are you?! Well thats my rant of course he took it to another level and thinking about it just makes me mad again so time to take a deep breath and just let go maybe watch some garden state or something and go to body combat later tonight

    Oh my goodness. I don't think I could have handled it as well as you did. A much older woman did this a few weeks back with a nautilus machine. She set her water down in the holder and went to the restroom right before I got on it. So I continued with other stuff. Someone else came and got on it. During my hour there I saw several people get on, do their sets and get off. Well before I left I saw it was empty and set myself up. I had my headphones on but noticed her giving me the evil eye. I turned my music off and overheard her telling her other older women friend that everytime she tries to use the machine someone else takes it. And how she even tried claiming it by putting her water in the holder. She actually stood directly in front of me watching me the entire time. Needless to say I wasn't in too friendly of a mood and did a few extra sets.

    Wow, and he preached to you about gym manners!? If that was me I may have punched him in the face. (Okay probably only punched him in the face in my mind, but still!)
