    Would I be wrong to approach this dude?

    Whenever my son doesn't go to the gym with me I have to set up my phone on my tripad on the floor prior to me doing a set, then I crop the video before I post it online so folks don't have to see all the other crap.

    When I got home the other day and I was in the middle of cropping one of my videos I caught this dude in my frame staring at me. When I am at the gym I am oblivious to what's going on around me becuase I get in the zone, but if I would have caught him staring at me I would have asked him WTF was his fcking problem. Since this happen a couple of days ago, would I be wrong to approach him if I see him and asked him wtf is his fcking problem with me?

    Or do I just wait and see if he stares at me again? I honestly don't feel like getting into no fkcing BS in the gym but WTF, this dude is freaking weird.

    Some go to the gym with the intent to just work out & may feel the incessant need to film every damn thing is weird?

    anytime I see a camera in the gym pointing near me I need to remember the face and behaviour of the guy who owns it. Maybe this guy has the same thought. We could all benefit from gyms being clear about filming policies.

    I would most likely be looking over also if someone had their camera/phone pointing at me.

    Start filming me in the gym... and I'll be glaring at you!

    A lot of gyms have a no camera policy for a reason.

    Video me and you're going to hear about it and probably need a proctologist to retrieve your phone.

    Leave the camera at home it's a gym not a dance recital and you aren't a 12 year old girl.

    This guy did no wrong, he is only looking. Not like he is taking video to put all over tik tok and bb.com

    You should respect others privacy, you could have easily said this guy was staring at me instead of posting his picture.

    John,

    Oddly enough, I just gave written permission for the publication of anything with a picture of me in it. I'm 100% with Pockets on this one.

    That is what I thought too. Even if he was looking at you, probably not a big deal. If I see someone in the gym doing an impressive lift, I will sometimes watch because it is kinda cool to see.

    Don't confront the guy because you don't know exactly what he was looking at or what his intent was.
    It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

    Here is the list of potential reasons why people are staring that i have observed over the years.

    1. You have a great build and they want to watch what you do
    2. Gay and want your attention
    3. Sizing you up for comparison(they walk really close...too close)
    4. Paranoia about being recorded and filmed
    5. They are socially awkward or weird( see the big misc)

    I would say hi to let him know, that you know, what he is up too or say i am filming myself so you may be in my recording.
    No need to go to war from the start.
    There is an unspoken thing, we are iron brothers and sisters, we are to support each other and...It is our duty to support our brothers and sisters in the iron game!

    What are the other facts pertaining to breaking someones jaw in response to what they say? You'd get kicked out of the gym. You'd be arrested. You'd have to go to court and hire a lawyer. You'd have to pay your victims medical expenses and either go to jail and/or be fined. Or of course there's the possibility that you'd take a beating and the other person would not be liable, because you attacked them over words. Getting physically violent over what someone says to you is not a demonstration of manliness; it's a manifestation of psychological weakness... and THAT IS A FACT, my brother.

    Try mind watching meditation. Just watch what's happening in that space you call 'my mind'.

    However, no one has ever had the balls to come to me and say anything and while I might be in the wrong, you step to me in the wrong way you will have a broken jaw and THAT is fact.

    But I need to rethink this for sure.

    I would be the first one to say something if you were videoing in my direction. However, not everyone is as forward as I am. Even though people haven't confronted you on it doesn't mean they are comfortable about being recorded. Some people wouldn't say sh!t if they had a mouthful.

    You all pay the same fees and most are paying those fees to train not be posted on the internet.

    If you insist on videoing, just be courteous and let people know, most won't give 2 sh!ts. If they do care then don't record.. Eazy Peazy

    What kind of gym you go to?

    At the studio that I go to, the trainers vid thier trainees and post them on thier FB pages, you will see others in the back ground, that’s just how they roll.

    I don’t give two fuks, I love my gym and those trainers/coaches, I wouldn’t want to train anywhere with exception of my garage.

    Those vids are how the gym gets more business too.

    Go look up recent criminal incidents in the Bronx, NY and tell me if you would also have a "warrior mindset" to survive life there for 50 years.

    Those vids are how the gym gets more business too.

    A small private gym..has a no camera policy as does the crossfit gym I go to..

    The previous 2 gyms before those were YMCA's and again no camera policy.


    I spent 16 years teaching, more than half of my classes were videotaped for my critique and so the students could have after hours access. I have been on Television several times, spoke at conventions and to crowds of over 200 that were all recorded.

    I have no issue with being recorded unless it is being done without my permission. Then we are going to have an issue..

    What you speak of is common practice in some gyms and in a lot of cases you are informed or it is in the agreement you sign, mentioning some video or pictures will be used for promotion etc.. Some of them will use the footage and still from the security cameras.

    What difference would that make if he wasn't in NY? That guy only looked his way. He didn't do anything wrong or tried to threaten OP. It's the OP that is trying to bully him. If anything that guy is a victim. This video is exactly like OP

    This right here,

    if anyone is in frame of the camera just ask them if they mind if you record this super important lift, better yet ask them to hold the camera. You might make a new gym acquaintance who sees that your activity is just you chronicling your lifts and being super concerned about good form and full reps etc. If they are positive you have converted someone to your cause, If they are not down with it, then just don't bother with it this time.

    Just my $0.02
    Please record my time/reps if I pass out

    I can’t say much more because well, I signed something that said not too, I wasn’t paid a cent, I was young and dumb and did it for the fun of it. Lesson learned.

    Johnny Bronx Bodyhard, you know people look at people at the gym.

    If he was looking at you, it is a compliment and he's not threatening you at all.

    Helping one person may not change the world, but it could change the world for one person.

    No no gym mirrors in the direction he was looking, all the gym mirrors right in front, if he looked straight he would have been looking right at the mirror.

    Don't confront the guy because you don't know exactly what he was looking at or what his intent was.
    After reading some comments here I will leave it alone, but if I catch him staring at me at the gym then I will approach him.

    1. You have a great build and they want to watch what you do
    2. Gay and want your attention
    3. Sizing you up for comparison(they walk really close...too close)
    4. Paranoia about being recorded and filmed
    5. They are socially awkward or weird( see the big misc)

    I would say hi to let him know, that you know, what he is up too or say i am filming myself so you may be in my recording.
    No need to go to war from the start.
    Not going to go up to him like I said unless I see him staring at me again.

Or of course there's the possibility that you'd take a beating and the other person would not be liable, because you attacked them over words. Getting physically violent over what someone says to you is not a demonstration of manliness; it's a manifestation of psychological weakness... and THAT IS A FACT, my brother.

    Try mind watching meditation. Just watch what's happening in that space you call 'my mind'.
    If someone was to approach me politely and say, dude you are recording me, I don't want to be in anyones video I would give the utmost respect and change the angle of the phone, however if he comes up to me (like I said in my original post) in the wrong way, like cursing at me saying, Yo don't fcking record me, I wont even argue with him, I would just hit him, thats just me.

    I don't see it as a compliment I see it as weird, but I digress.
