    Thumbs down My Gym SUCKS!!

    So my gym sucks not because it has bad or lack of equipment, but because it is full of gym rats, stupid kids who think they are strong while they weigh 100 pounds and steroids freaks. The problem is not that they go, it is that they take about 10 minutes in each machine, sometimes they even use a machine just to sit on it, while they talk with their group and sometimes take up an entire area. The free weights are scattered around, because they never put them back.

    I am tired of asking them if they are using a machine, so I can use it. I go the gym with a routine in mind, but I can NEVER follow my routine because if I wait for the people to "finish" using the machine or weight that I need, I would cool down and they are always with a group, so they cannot "share" the weight or machine.

    What can I do? My membership ends in 3 months...

    Honestly, if you can't fix the problem with these people, find another gym.

    Your options are:

    A: live with it/try to remedy the problem.
    The easiest way to remedy this problem is to go when no one else goes, the harder
    way is talking to management, the nearly impossible way is trying to change the
    annoying people. The jerk way is to spread your stuff over as much of the gym as
    possible or hoard the dumbells, to 'reserve' what you plan using. This is stepping
    down to the same level though, so I wouldn't recommend it.

    B: find a new gym
    simple if there are other gyms, hard if you are out in the boondocks.

    Personally I would find a new gym if at all reasonable

    Also, let management know about these kids and their lack of re-racking the weights. I know that's it had become a big enough problem at my gym that they started pulling people's memberships for it.

    Have you tried going at different times? There are certain times of the day that the same stuff occurs where I work out.

    You forgot the people who sit on equipment to text. That gets on my nerves so bad because they are usually just there with a friend and not even working out.

    My biggest pet peeve is the guys who put a metric ****ton of weight onto something, then proceed to do the exercise completely wrong, or only lift it slightly noticeably. After that they proceed to walk around like they're THE FCUKING MAN!!!

    I wanna slap these idiots. I know they can't kick my ass cause they don't have the strength if they're not doing the workouts right. And if they DO have muscle it's cause they're pumped up on roids.

    I'd say go at a different time, talk to management...all good plans.

    Its three months, brah. Tough it up and move on to a more serious atmosphere.
    GOAL: Be better than I am
    "Don't look at yesterday. You can't change it. It happened. Don't look at tomorrow. It hasn't come yet. What you do today can make up for yesterday and completely change tomorrow. Work on today."

    On training hard: "I train my hardest because one day, my life or the life of someone else may depend on it. I train like there is no tomorrow because one day, I may be in a situation where if I don't succeed, there will be no tomorrow."

    Just shoot them the "1000 yard stare" and ask, "are you about done sitting on that?"

    I have that same problem at my gym sometimes...just go ask if they're done, if they say no, ask "well, how many sets you got left?" and then just f*ckin stare at em like somethings wrong with you til they answer (I don't have a problem with that stare, because there really is something wrong with me)...a lot of the time, if they aren't done, they will alternate with me. Look, you obviously chose that gym for a reason, whether it's close to your house, or cheap, or for whatever reason - my point is, don't let anyone run you off.

    You can try going later at night, I find that around 1-2am there is no one in my gym and it is perfect for my routine and speed. I can take as long as I want or as short as I want and no one will complain.

    Theres been an Influx of people at my gym and I've started to go again after Physical Therapy... I used to go late at night and now EVERYONE is going...

    If i see someone sitting on a machine and not using it I'll ask them to move elsewhere... If they decline, I will just explain to them that they are merely wasting my time and their own. I will tell them i personally don't care that they are paying money to sit on the machines merely to watch the Televsions on the wall. This pretty much works most of the time...

    If i see someone on a Machine, Working Hard, But taking more time then someone normally would, I'll let them finish as they are actually trying as opposed to others.

    I always rack my weights in weight order and as the person said above, My gym has been pulling memberships from people, for leaving weights on the ground. Someone left a weight and it ended up rolling across the gym and someone stepped on it and broke their ankle.

    Also i hate people who expect people to clean the Machines for them. My gym has at least 5 Cleaning Stations with Cleaner and Towels to do a quick wipe down. I constantly pull people over to tell them to clean the machine and it will embarrass them tremendously...

Look, you obviously chose that gym for a reason, whether it's close to your house, or cheap, or for whatever reason - my point is, don't let anyone run you off.
    Hmmm, I don't mind letting someone work in with me, but being approached properly is a must and there's no problem. I usually do 2-3 minute rests in between and make sure I keep a watch on so I don't slip. Some newbies get a little nasty about things I just snear and look away.

The free weights are scattered around, because they never put them back.

    I am tired of asking them if they are using a machine, so I can use it. I go the gym with a routine in mind, but I can NEVER follow my routine because if I wait for the people to "finish" using the machine or weight that I need, I would cool down and they are always with a group, so they cannot "share" the weight or machine.

    What can I do? My membership ends in 3 months...

    Alternate your workout off the machine to do, let's say... something with dumbells or etc. etc., my body does not like the machines tho, so I am partial - i have the same prob at my gym, just try to find a less busy time- right now in Jan. it's hell and all the newbies are there- its a nightmare.
