Ha! People can do some pretty stupid, silly things, that's for sure. Just what's wrong with going to your local commercial gym? :) It's a veritable circus! Honestly, at my gym I've only seen two or three ridiculous things in the past 3 or 4 years. :) And none of them were quite as bad as any in the video clip. LOL

There's this guy I call "Bart Simpson". He does these taichi like moves between sets.
It is these personalities that do make the gym an amusing place sometimes.

While hilarious and entertaining as that vid is, I'm sure it isn't the ONLY reason you miss going to the gym, brah.....

Honestly I don't go mostly because of hours they are open. 5:30 am (when they show up) to 9:00 pm (they start shutting lights off in different areas at 8:00). I'm an HVAC service tech and a lot of times don't get home until 7-8 pm eat then go work out. The other gym is outragously high priced and not as much equipment. I could understand if there was specialty equipment but ther's not even that.

They also have a bunch of social butterflies there. When I went to the gym I would wear over the ear headphones and have them loud to kind of just let people know I was actually there to workout. These people would still tap me on the shoulder and ask questions. Most times I have no problem with it but I knew they were just trying to be social when I was just trying to workout before they closed.

Then the 20 y/o that would tell me that I'm squatting wrong. You know the type, "going that deep is bad for your knees" and they would put 5-700# on the bar and squat 2-4 inches and say that's how it's done.

People sitting on the bench texting/talking on the phone. Looking up videos then stopping everyone to show them.

If there was anything like that my gym I get a divorce and buy the gym. :)

When I viewed this on my iPad the youtube video wasn't displayed. I thought you were being sarcastic and saying that there was nothing you missed. :D

Was she asking whether she looked better with or without the pants on? I think we all know the answer...
