Gym Pet Hates?

Anyone got any gym pet hates?

One of mine is when people don't wipe the machines down :vom:

I also had some man tonight blatantly staring at me in one of the mirrors as I was doing the chest press, I find it a bit rude! And intimidating, especially as the only place you can look is in his direction

The other day some woman was sat at the chest press texting or whatever I try to use this first so waited because at first I thought I'm guilty of a quick text between breaks or using my note pad for notes of what I'm doing, 1 minute max ...10 mins later she's still sat there so I started on a different one and half way through off she went still typing on her phone. WTF move woman wasn't impressed!

Pet hate for me is this weird blond/gingery bloke that just keeps staring in my direction when I go. Perv. Also, people who use the machines to just gossip with friends and do sod all of a workout. Argh!! Give the machine up to someone who is gonna use it for its proper use, exercise!!

When i did the gym a few years back i felt awkward when they gym fitties flirted around the PTs. It really pulls you down and makes you feel crapper than before you went in the first place. Meh!

There's a weird blonde/gingery guy at my gym too!! He's super tall. It was just me and him in the gym one night and he kept just sitting there looking at me, so I was like ..... then I walked home and as soon as I got on my street near my house he goes bounding past me, I nearly pooed. Turns out he only lives in the house opposite mine but next door

Where do I start ...

People constantly on their phones ... Texting doesn't count as reps

People who don't rerack their weights .. Yeah cos I want to waste my energy lugging weights around before I've even started

People who hog the smiths machine for stuff when they have a spotter .. They're there to help, use them, someone working out alone could use it more!!

People who spends ages on a machine, I've watched someone before spend 30 minutes on something!!

People who butt in and try to tell you stuff but won't actually show you, what's the point in that?
