    My friend said that he avoid talking to people at the gym

    .... ... .. . because he's going to have to talk to them again, next time that he see them, other wise it's kinda awkward.

    Is he anti-social or what ?

    Not really. My buddy doesn't shut the fuk up talking to ppl at the gym and while we worked out together and when he moved dt I was stuck with all these ppl now talking to me constantly. Can't even workout without someone coming up to chat so I am switching gyms

    I also work in sales so when I'm done work I'm bitter and dont want to hear about anyone's fuking day

    Some people enjoy talking to others at the gym.

    Some don’t.


    This has nothing to do with being social or anti-social

    I have found i just kinda "get in the zone"

    Even at work, i just want to get things done. And asking me to take away from that detracts a lil bit

    I think if you are a regular you will eventually talk to another regular at some point. I dont mind saying hello or even a brief "all good bro?" "Yeah buddy shoulders today." After that I want to get back to it.

    Don't know how some people can just talk for 20mins straight to another patron. I think for them the gym is a social venture more than exercise time.

    I avoid talking at the gym from bad experiences and because I don't want to be there longer than I need to be.

    I go there to do my workout while keeping up my pace and then leave. It's annoying as hell when some people go and use it as there social hour. I see some dude's go in and talk to people 75% of there workout.

    a lot of people treat the gym more as a social club and just go there to talk and piss about on the machines, nothing inherently wrong with that but if you're somewhat serious about the gym it's quite a hindrance having some guy ramble on and on to you when you just want to get your sets in and leave. that's possibly why he avoids talking to people

    Agh, not really anti-social. I avoid the commercial gym we do to at times or will go to a different location because I don’t want to be talked to if I’m in a mood or have limited time.

    This sounds gay but when you’re stronger than or most in the gym, people seem to gravitate toward that and want to chat. It’s ok at times but you have to learn the escape route so you can keep the pace right.

    Also depends on what I have going on that day but I do a powerlifting main movement and then 5-7 bodybuilding movements the same day.

    He is right though. Once you introduce yourself or have that initial convo, they will attempt to talk to you again, which could become annoying, depending on their personality.

    Earbuds in 100% of the time and keep to myself if I'm at a commercial gym, I'm not there to socialize, I'm there to lift sh*t. I'm used to training by myself at home the majority of the time anyways.

    I absolutely hate talking to people at the gym. Headphones in and leave me alone, I don't go to solcialize.

    There's this dude who works at my gym and he's a nice dude, but my god when he starts talking it doesn't end, so I try to avoid him as much as possible.

    Not really. I have the same attitude. It's not to be douchy but with headphones on and doing my thing I'm really in my own head. Gym time is my time and idle chit chat would take me out of that zone. My gym is small too and everyone else seems to socialize, people there probably think I'm a douche but Im ok with it.

    I have a handful of acquaintances in the gym that I have short chats with but I’m well aware it’s fuking up my pace and once I reach a certain number of friends at the gym I try to avoid making more so I’m not stuck there for 3 hours
    Hm.

    Opies bruh could be anti-social... we don't know him IRL..

    But not wanting to talk to anybody at the Gym doesn't automatically deem you as "anti-social"... personally I am there for one reason and running my mouth isn't it. I am a busy fkn guy at this point I my life so free time is a luxury... I will say what's up in passing but don't expect me to pull my headphones off for small talk...

    That's exactly me too, except I do use headphones. It's a trivial matter to pause the music, talk for 30 seconds and say 'alright man gotta get my next set in'.

    I'm definitely not against people who won't talk at all but if you can't even look at someone and nod maybe you are a little antisocial.
