Well I’ve switched gyms in August of 2012 to a more convient Gold’s gym far from the realms of smaller gyms Im accustomed to. Change made CoCo unhappy, but I adapt. Meet beautiful scantily clad vixens who seem to only do leg presses and shoulder raises, formerly use to hanging around big angry powerlifters named Ed.
Shiny Precor And Hammer Strength machines await me as i was use to a crooked t bar row and a cable crossover machine that’s been broken since 2011. In all that excitement, I find a chink in Gold’s illustrious armor: 70% of their members are depressingly retarded and rude. My workouts have been great there but, only in spite of unnecessary obstacles.
For example, in my small time gym, if I failed to unrack 22 plates off the leg press, the manager will hit in the back of the head with a dragon kick, make me rerack, then bar me for my consideration. However, in my new gym, I spend most of the time playing 'locate and match the dumbell'. Some X fitter next to me does some shitty combination of shrug-deadlift-row with 150s slams them down, and walk the fuck off, possibly on his way to a rave.
If I had nickel for every dozen 2.5 and 5 lb plates I pulled off a leg press or barbell, I’d have enough cash to open my own fucking gym!!
The point of this thread is to see:

- Do you have to deal with ALOT of dumb shit where you train
- What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen
