Question #1: How long have you been working out in gyms that cater to the public?
Question #2: Do you think a gym should allow members to block another gym member who has a desire to use the same machine (in this case a hack squat machine) for the sole purpose of keeping their heart rate up? Or, is blocking a machine for any reason at all permissable? Or put another way, if someone comes up to you and asks, “Hey do you mind if I work in with you on this machine?” do you think it’s proper, do you think it’s justified to respond with, “No, you can’t work in. You’ll have to wait. There are other machines you can use. Please go use another machine.” Do you condone that type of attitude? Is it right, or is it wrong?
Note that when answering question #2 I am not referring to cardio gear like a Lifecycle or a treadmill. I’m referring to weight machines; things like the bench press, the hack squat, the lat pulldown machine. Okay? Thanks.
