I’ve been lurking this site, and just wanted to vent.
Why does everyone with a gym membership and a lil bit of regularlity think they have the right the right to fucking preach to other people in the gym?
It’s just pissing me off.
I’ve lifted at the YMCA, 24 Hourfitness, and a local hard ass gym noones ever heard of.
All of them had a lot of fucking know it all people with no strength or ability, who read an article, or yapped with some guy “guns.” And now they think they have the right to preach to other fucking people.
The only place where this doesn’t happen to me, and the new place I lift, is my school…therefore, I’m only going to lift at my school for now on. Cuz I actually like the people in my weight room.
Examples of this bullshit:
Some dumb old bitch says, doing some wierd aerobic cardio shit in an outfit out of the 80s with 5 lbs weights, is working out.
I’m minding my own fucking business, and go to do some 60 lbs db curls, (after I’ve done some other arm work), because I always try to up the weight.
After this I decided I wanted to practice my form on some cable machines as I never really used cable machines before, only free weights. So I was trying to learn good form from a book, and did a few reps.
Anyways, stupid female comes up and is like “You know, you’re only doing 1 or 2 reps on these machines, you NEED to take your EGO out of your LIFTING, and you’ll get a lot better that way, you should be doing at lot more reps, and you CURL too much, you should be doing 20s, since you’re new at this gym.”
“Look, lady, I don’t come to you and slap the dicks out of your mouth, so leave me the fuck alone you don’t what I’m doing, and if you did you’d feel like a huge jackass.”
She gets furious goes ape shit and storms off.
Another time, there’s this black dude, who is like staring at me when I’m about to squat. He comes over like fucking action jackson, one of those like fat ass “I USED TO PLAY FOOTBALL TYPES” and he’s like, are YOU SURE YOU KNOW HOW TO SQUAT.
He starts breaking down some kind of high school lecture on the dangers of squatting poorly.
I appreicated it and all, but can I just fucking lift? I mean, fuck can I just fucking lift?
I mean, some lil dork ass, pencil neck dude, comes up to me when I worked out at the YMCA, and I was using one of those stupid benchpress fake ass machines, and maxing it out. And he comes up like, WOAH DUDE, YOU ARE DOING TOO MUCH WEIGHT! Why are you trying to lift that much, I have been lifting for 3 years, and I never push up that much weight. Blah blah blah…I’m thinking, why the fuck does this dude care, I’m just trying to lift, do you come up in here and talk or something, is this your hang out.
The worst is the dude who tries to come up to me at a fitness club, and talk shit on my form, my whatever, cuz he is prolly a personal trainer. Try to act like we’re buds and be a total dipshit and be like, “WELL YOU NEED TO EAT 24% carbs and blah blah, and you need to only lift so many days a week, blah blah.”
Usually this guy is pretty fit, kinda fit but nothing spectacular. Just some bothersome selfcentered prick, who thinks he’s a know it all.
I could go on and on.
Anyways that’s my vent, I just had to get this shit out.
Why the fuck are there so many annoying jack asses in gyms?
