View Full Version : Damn cell phones in the gym!

I think there should be some sort of cell phone jammer in every gym, then maybe the bench warmers would actually get something done. Yesterday there were 2 individuals who came in and during an hr long period are lucky if they performed 4 sets of anything. Constantly playing with their damn phones, had to kick one off a bench because I needed it and all he was doing was texting. Funny thing is there were 3-4 others and we were all busting ass and it was pretty damn hot in the joint and we were all sweaty and nasty. The 2 primadonas on their phones didn't have a drop of sweat and were a couple of the skinniest lil $hits I have seen at a gym yet. You would think they would want to actually work out so they could stop benching with the #20 db's...and no I am not joking about that.

Funny, and probably true. I bit my tongue as I wanted so badly to tell them to get the fuk off the phone and lift some weight or GTFO.

Let me guess, younger guys? More than likely miscers miscing instead of working out. I don't understand why people can't take the 45 minutes to an hour(+ or -)they're in the gym to just focus on their bodies and forget about everything else. It's actually daily therapy for me because there are so many stupid people in this world.

If I had to guess somewhere between 17-20 yrs old each of them. And it's not just in the gym, these smart phones will be end of all of us, I see people all the time just staring at those fukkin screens while walking, shopping, driving, at work, etc. I still have a flip phone....yep i'm a dinosaur and get laughed at but I don't care.

LOL I've got one of those 'beam me up Scotty' flip phones too! :) I have seen some serious lifters on their phones on occasion. I think they may have 'apps' or something, logging their workouts on the phone like I do in my little composition book. But I've seen a good many folk just jabbering or texting away. Cell phones are a convenient tool, but people have gone absolutely crazy, stupid with their non-stop use. Lots of 'communication' and nothing of importance said! :(

I know a guy at work like this. He has a flip phone for basically just in case calls of when his family needs to get in touch with him. He's more of a nature guy and has a place up in the mountains and down in the city. We often have talks about technology and self independence of technology. It would seem we blow each other's minds on a daily basis......no pun intended.
In this day and age being on a phone all day is just the norm and even I catch myself staring at my iPhone longer than I know I should. It's really out of boredom and people don't know how to utilize their downtime any better than surfing on the net or miscing. Such is life in the 21st century.

A few months back I was at UW Madison hospital and I laughed and pointed out to my wife when one of the nurses pulled out her flip phone and told her I wasn't that much outta the times. The nurse told me that everyone except the Dr's at the hospital is prohibited from using smart phones since people tend to spend too much time on them just screwing off.

My phone stays in the car. All I carry is my water bottle with my keys clipped to it and maybe bring my hat.

I have a Samsung flip phone, heavy duty, drop proof, supposedly water resistant. I do machine shop work and will lean on the phone at times when I reach into a CNC mill to change a part or doing a set up. The glass ones always broke on me. Did I say it costs me $30 a month? I may get an i-phone one of these days, but will keep the flip phone for just running around town, at work, at the beach, etc. Friggin' i-phones are just too delicate for what I do.

I can't go 30 minutes without looking at my cell phone, but I always leave it in the car during gym time. The gym is my "break" from everything, including that.

Believe me I have zero issues with telling anyone to get their lazy ass off a piece of equipment if I need it. have yet to have anyone to tell me to go fuk myself. I almost had a BH moment last night at the Alic Cooper/Motley Crue concert. Skinny fuk next to me dressed like David Lee Roth was an annoying little ****, kept standing up so peeps in back couldn't see **** and they mutter but not say anything to him, so I poked him in the back and told him to sit the fuk down as he was blocking everyone elses view. He tells me "I can't see all that well unless i stand" so i respond with "you sit down or I will beat the fuk out out of your skinny ass"...and that is 100% real talk in BH words. The 2 guys behind us were freakin out because I went off on this lil $hit and they thought for sure a fight was coming and to be brutally honest I was hoping for one myself. Pussy backed down and sat his ass down.

No different than looking at the second hand on wall clock...I ain't texting, making calls or looking up songs....and I'm not hogging anyone's equipment :)....I use it as a work tool for interval training...I guess I could go buy a stop watch and then look at that....what would be the difference....?

I don't own a cell phone myself (unthinkable, I know) but to my great surprise this has not been a problem in the gyms I've been to here in Korea.

It's a problem everywhere else: classrooms, workplaces, social events, walking down the street (literally on the road itself), weddings, while driving.

But for whatever reason, I have yet to see someone absentmindedly taking up useful space in the gym on their cell phone. Some people even leave their phones on a little table by the water cooler, only checking them a few times during their workout. Those that do go on an extended text-a-thon will sit somewhere off to the side, for which I am grateful.
