I’ll start out by saying that I haven’t met all my goals and don’t have the body I want yet. But then again who does. Is anybody ever happy? Having said that I was extremely pissed off in the gym today. I saw two people, a man and woman (I’m assuming a couple) take a slow walk on the treadmill while watchig TV and do maybe 10 minutes of light weights (Lat Pull downs and leg extensions mostly) and then get ready to leave.
I was curious so I asked the guy how long he had been coming there since I had just joined this gym. He said six months but he was thinking about quiting because it isn’t working for them. I am a very timid person for the most part but got the balls up to ask, “Is that typical of your workouts?” He said, “Yes.” “So you aren’t rehabbing an injury?” He said, “No, just trying to lose some weight.” Seriously? No results? Of course not! Can anybody out there tell me what the hell wrong with people?!?
I may be a bit lazy some days and not work out as hard as I should but I literally beat myself up about it the next day at the gym to try and make up for it. I am soooo tired of the girls who come in the gym and do nothing but talk and try to hit on guys and the guys who are only there to try and appease their girlfriends or boyfriends or whatever. Do it for yourself and no one else. I think those girls and guys give someone who is trying a bad name.
Like the chubby girl at my old gym who after six months had visably lost quite a bit and toned up. The funniest thing I ever saw was a guy trying to hit on her and her response being, “I’m busy.” She always busts her ass and isn’t there to mess around. The people I’m pissed at are the poeple who seem to have endless amounts of time to waste. My time is precious and I barely find the time for the gym so I make it count. I hate the people who don’t.
Oh wait I forgot the Old Guys who trying to talk to you when you are in the middle of a set of deadlifts and get annoyed when you don’t answer. Maybe the new gym will be devoid of those guys? Just maybe.
Anybody else feel this way?
