Oh no!I'm training to be a gym instructor, just waiting for the old ACL replacement to get better!
Did anyone mention people with their i-pods? thoose people that hover over cross trainers looking at what they will play next.
Agree with grunting males...its so silly. I tried not to laugh at a man who was on the lat pull down, he was making it known to the people of the gym he was He-Man master of the weight machines!he got little attention other then me giggling at his poor technique.
Also last night I saw a lady who was on the bike with a magazine reading away and cycling like she thought she was actually going to move...its stapled to the floor love!
When I was at Ft. Bragg there was this guy who wore the little unitard with a ripped up t-shirt, which was kinda gay to begin with, but his work out partner called him "spike" and he would wear a spiked leather dog collar while he worked out. Unfortunately, he really was one of the strongest guys in the gym, so I couldn't really laugh too much...
when I was going to the downtown YMCA there was this chunky, short, middle aged man from the phillipines who would wash his tighty-whiteys in the bathroom sink.
when I would goto the 24 hour fitness downtown I would see a gentleman cycling through the leg machines while wearing a full business suit.
I see what you're saying. The only thing that's really neccesary is exhalation.

Also the guys who come in and lift just enough to get some definition while ensuring they do not mess up their perfectly gelled hair make me want to stick their heads in a toilet or something

we have a couple of people who are just fit and have done courses, but I guess it depends on the gym you go to as to how good the instructors are. We write personalised programs and spend hours taking new people through and showing them exactly what to do, how to do it, explaining why, and letting them know they can have an assesment or be shown anything they want at any time. I spend all the time im not in the office doing assesments walking around chatting to people, spotting people, racking weights and giving advice if needed.
so go get fucked, muppet :D
