    People like the OP, who gives a damn about strangers in a gym, and think that 3 years of lifting = expert

    Trust me, an educated trainer knows alot more about proper form than you do, unless you participate in competitions, which I seriously doubt with that attitude.

    Women talking on their bloody cellphones inside the gym while I am trying to focus on my reps, women bending over so that I can get a good look of their ass while I am trying to focus on reps.

    Women who just can't stop talking to each other (guys tend to shut the fuck up):

    "O HAI DARLIN U WOULDNT BELIEEEEVVVEEEE WHAT WE DID LAS NIGHT"

    1 hour later

    "SO WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO GO FOR HOLIDAYS THIS SEASON?"

    Jeez.

    Try finding a dungeon kinda gym where gym rats go and avoid high-end, hi-tech gyms if you are really serious on exercising, b/c that's where most women tend to go, and the moment women step into the gym things start to go south.
    NINJA TURTLES as the next playable WoW race/class combo. WoW has got Kung Fu Pandas, Pokemon and recently even Transformers in it, so I don't see how Ninja Turtles would be any less pathetic than current "WoW" is.

    hehe i must say that at my new gym all of the resistance machines have their backs to the wall facing the oposite wall where all the cardio machines are facing the wall, and there was this blonde girl ont he machine straight in front of me and . . . DATASS! I'm trying to concentrate on keeping my back straight and facing straight ahead but trying to avoid staring so that i can actually do my reps >_<

    I can't say there's a "type" of gym-goer that bothers me, though my gym has a few machines that face the cycling machines and only stand a few feet in front of them. It's kind of awkward to use those because you may as well be watching each other work out. Luckily I have a trainer that has his own gym and I only have to use the public gym on weekends or when I miss a session.

    The gym I go to is split in two (mostly) with the desk splitting the cardio & resistance sides of the gym, only really a problem when the finest of the gym honeys decide they're gonna gogo from the eliptical machines to do some weight training as they tend to do on a Tuesday, but it's somewhat hard for that to annoy me much - they are after all asses I could watch all day!

    OOF! You really had me there, except the part where you put the words in my mouth that I call myself an expert.
    Also the trainers there are scientists, yes. NO!

    When at the gym, I usually just do my own thing and don't give a crap about what the others are doing. But I gotta say, 16-20 year olds who go straight for biceps curls on their full body workout are pretty funny.

    1. People that walk around giving everyone "advice".
    2. People think that they own the gym and everyone must alter their plans to suit them.
    3. People who criticize others routines.
    4. People who don't check their weights when sharing a bench. This one really gets me because I ended up busting two fingers off my primary hand because of it and had to have them reattached.

    Sharing an incline bench with another guy both of us doing dumb bells. He walked behind the bench and threw his bells under the seat when i was sitting down so I never saw them. I had 90s in my hand and he was 45s or 50s. When I went to set mine down I smashed my ring and middle finger on the head of his bell. Both my fingernails were on the mat, my ring finger was hanging on by some skin(doc report said only 25% of the tissue was still attached) and my middle finger was flat and looked like hamburg. Doc in the ER said they would have to be amputated but I found really good surgeon that specialized in hand injuries.

    I hate gym trainers who ask you if you want to sign up for a personal trainer.

    I hope you sued him. That is pretty clear negligence on his part.

    Ya I have about almost full use. I regrew finger nails, there was no guarantee of that since the nail beds were mangled. The only issues are that I don't have feeling in the tips of those fingers, they get stiff and swell easy, and the scarring makes holding dumb bells and things pretty rough.

    I got lucky though because the ER didn't even bother to clean them and it was 15 hours before surgery. My hands were dirty from chalk and just using the equipment. Had I got an infection I would have lost both fingers.

    Women who wear next to nothing lycra, especially the ones with massive tits.

    They know men are going to naturally get a boner when watching those bad boys bounce, so why do they look at us with disgust

    People who curl in the squat rack.

    Edit: -Oh and people who don't put the weights back to weight trees/racks
    -People who use 4x5kg plates for each side. There is a reason that 20kg plates exist

    Maybe I just have low pain tolerance (scratch that, I definitely have low pain tolerance), but I always need someplace else for my mind to go. When I'm with my trainer we talk, but when I use the public gym I always bring my iPod. I can't imagine not keeping your mind occupied with music or something else when exercising.

    I actually have a new most hated type in the gym thanks to an "encounter" today. I'm happily running along on the treadmill minding my own business (and enjoying some Queen) when someone is apparently having a seizure trying to catch my attention to take my headphones out, so being relatively polite I decide to do so as they clearly have something important to say. She goes "eh can you move, I need to use this treadmill" eh?!? excuse me no you don't "NEED" to use this one, I tell her that there are numerous other treadmills she's free to use, she goes to reach for the stop button while saying "naw, me and my mate need to be beside each other", just before she gets to the stop button I warn her that pressing that will end badly for all concerned. The supervisor who was just behind me walks up and asks me to stop the machine a wee second then ripped into the bint asking just what the hell she thought she was doing, that could have injured me if I was unprepared for such an action and she had no right to do so!

    Bint then goes on "I'm in here this time every Tuesday!" to which the audience who was now watching disagreed, she bitched, said I was being an arse and went on the bikes instead with her mate, 15 minutes later she buggers off. As I'm signing out the staff were apologetic, turns out that she was actually a regular in the local authority facilities in the next town over but that she's got previous there for being nippy!
