      does that make us all hypocrites, including you? we've all complained about people in our gym, its the point of the thread.

      making fun of someone for doing something stupid....that's funny.
      making fun of someone while you do the same thing....less funny....except to me, I'm laughing.

      I signed up at a new gym today.
      The guy who was getting my paperwork straightened up mentioned something about getting "toned".
      I immediately thought of everyone on this forum and burst out laughing.

      LOL when i signed up at my gym they have a survey you take. it asks why you are joining, choices being strength, lose weight, gain weight, and toning. i laughed at tone as well, but the guy working there did not laugh. i think he wants mad tone.

      Who doesn't? I asked Santa for tone, but that ******* let me down.
      It's all about squats and deads.

      Maybe we need to get together and start a new gym called "tone"
      and maybe boot camp somewhere in there along with in only 15 minutes?
      we could be a marketing machine!!
      oh one more thing that drives me nuts since i am now a gym user...
      giant tv's playing the cooking channel. Nothing like killing myself on the bike or lifting weights and seeing a giant chicken breast frying in oil...
      maybe they should pump hamburger scent through the ventilation to drive us wild with food lust ecstasy?
      i think i am going to wear this to the gym from now on...

      My gym has a suggestion box, and one of the suggestions made (by more than a few people) was to put the cooking channel on the TVs. I think the same thing you do. Although, when Giada is on, I'm not looking at the food

      Why is it people watch the cooking channel at the gym, i cant watch that show without becoming immediatley starving.
      my girlfriend goes to the planet fitness near her house once ever 2 months or whatever she feels like and called me yesterday ECSTATIC that she went there on pizza night.
      when i laughed she said she only had 1 peice as opposed to last time when she had 3.
      it grinds my gears that planet fitness taunts my girlfriend with pizza.

      you are a liar. you probably knew she was on her way and you called ahead to tell them to have it ready for her, WITH a diet coke. we know how you like them.

      Everytime I go to the gym, I have to laugh when I see Army guys in there. First of all they are not the smartest bunch in the world. But they crowd all the benches, don't re-rack the weights and do the most ridiculous exercises ever.
      I saw a guy using the tricep pulldown bar behind his back. Some guys were holding plates and they were 'throwing' them in front of themselves. However one guy let go and it broke the mirror in the gym. Needless to say he got banned.

      while i have nothing against the army, i LOL'd at the mental picture of someone just hurling a plate into a mirror.
      last night at the gym i saw a guy curling 55 lbs in the squat rack. when he finished he just left he didn't unrack it. failure. i also got hardcore mean mugged by another lesbian who looked like she plays rugby. she grilled me and my gf while we did walking lunges.

      Nope, but I did see a chick eating a bag of freshly popped popcorn.
      The smell is distracting!

      The other night, some teenager was stepping on and hopping over some of the workout benches while walking back and forth through the gym.

      That was the number one thing that pissed me off with the gym in Iraq. Since my base didn't really have a good MWR setup people went to the gym to watch tv and ****. The other that guys were the rediculously overweight national guardsmen that were 300 pounds benching 105 pound dumbells and screaming big weight. So many people were on there deployment fitness plan if you will, basically a bunch of people that never worked out but for some reason decided to get in shape for the deployment. I mean good on 'em but I saw so many people just going through the motions.
