    That time of year

    It’s that time of year people. The time of year that marks all the new members to the gym. The ladies and gentlemen of the “New Years resolution” crowd.

    It gets crowded, there’s less free equipment to go around, and there’s less gym etiquette.

    Let’s all make sure we remember; everyone starts somewhere, and there’s a learning curve to this thing.

    All you gym vets out there, let’s practice patience and positivity, and let’s help these people stay motivated.

    Responses to this thread would be more interesting in Misc where it belongs.

    I'm increasing fees in my basement home gym to keep the newbies out. There's only room for one idiot doing curls in the squat rack.

    Yep!

    In fact, my wife and I were joking about selling them equipment for the next few weeks and then buying it back for 1/2 in the spring.

    Lifted the last two days...skipping today and having a spicy ass bloody mary this morning. Party and food at 2pm. My home gym is empty. Only difference for me is I'll start dieting soon. My planned bulk went a bit over expectations.

    I don't expect crowds in my home gym...but hot fitness chicks are always welcome.
