Why this place doesn’t already have such a topic is beyond me. I’ll go first then.
My gym is quite good. It’s got many different bars, racks, handles etc. but some of the people who come there are so insanely weird that it removes focus completely.
First place for the strangest person I’ve ever met is a fat immigrant in his 40s who’s completely lost it. The people you see on various youtube videos doing strange stuff cant even begin to compare to what this guy is doing.
I guess everybody does something odd now and then, but this is a full blown comedy with a mildly retarded actor who does not know he is in a movie.
First he tries one treadmill but he did not like that one. Then another and then back again, then the third, then besides me where he puts treadmill to 3kmt and starts singing to the lady standing next to him. The lady moves to another treadmill, but he does not care, he just follows her and continues to sing. The lady leaves. He comes back to the treadmill besides me. All other treadmills are free, but he has to be on this particular one. Sets the treadmill at 3kmt and begins to pretend that he’s running. Breathes ot loud as if he runs. Arm swinging. Wild arm swinging. He hits me several times. Begins to laugh and say strange noises while looking at me. I Move. He follows and does more arm swinging. I ask him nicely to get away from me. He begins to sing. I raise my voice and tell him to get the fuck away from me. He sings out louader. I am out of here.
A guy’s doing cleans on a platform which is designed with rubber pads, to absorb weights being dropped.
He walks over and yells at him. Can’t understand a single word. It just strange sounds. His hands insinuate that he isn’t allowed to throw the bar down. Gets a 2.5kg plate and starts swinging it around in uncontrolled patterns. Stupid plate. Gets a new and better one. Swings it around in a uncontrolled pattern. A guy starts squatting. Hurries behind him and starts swinging with the plate. Stupid plate. Gives the plate to the guy squatting. Off to the shoulder press machine. Laughs at the machine for 15 minutes. Boxing. Off to a random girl at the other end of the room. She must help him get the glove on. He sings. finds another girl. She must help him with the other glove. Hits the bag one. Begins to run around the bag instead while laughing. Pushup. Off to the cross trainer, with gloves on. Starts stretching on the cross trainer. Treadmill. Starts stretching on the treadmill. Pushup. Boxing. Runs around the bag while he laughs. Takes a plate I’m using. Swings it around. Stupid plate. Gives it to a random guy who’s doing dips.
Later, downstairs. I have to make a dumb. The toilet is occupied. There’s singing. He opens the door. He’s destroyed the toilet. He laughs as he says strange noises and points to his masterpiece. He still weares the boxing gloves. I go home
