That’s pretty bad!
Wouldn’t that create some sort of liability on the gym owner’s part?
I can easily see someone getting injured by tripping over some dumbbells.
I’ve seen it happen. I was at a 24 Hour a while back where there were dumbbells laying everywhere. This guy is doing dumbbell bench press. When he finished his set, he tried to walk the weights back to the rack, but his foot caught on a random dumbbell sitting in front of the rack and does a header into it. Gave himself a pretty good cut on his forehead. He wasn’t too happy after either.[/quote]
See, that’s what I’m thinking off.
At the OP’s gym you have a chance of tripping over a dumbbell only to have a vertically placed barbell smash down on your head.
The people at my gym almost always re-rack weights. I usually spend time between sets organizing them though. Drives me nuts when you have a 25 pound weight placed in front of a 10 pound weight. But at least they are racked.
