On another note, Sara at Meals and Manhattan recently wrote about her Gym Pet Peeves and I thought it was hysterical so I'm going to partake in my biggest pet peeves. For the most part, I love my gym so I don't have toooo many but of course I have a few! Mostly it's people related, not exactly gym related..
In the Gym:
Holding onto the top of the treadmill while running.
(There's a girl at my gym who runs 5-6 miles while holding on the entire time... it bothers me soooo much, I want to tell her to just slow down instead of holding on... like whatttt?? You can't hold on outside!)
(There is this dude at my gym who does the most uncomfortably sexual looking stretches I've ever seen and then holds then for a long time.)
Working in on my sets
(I lift like twice a week. When I do, its such a pet peeve when a guy wants to "work in" on my sets. I do 3X10. Takes like 5 min max. Can't they wait? Go to a different machine?)
Improper form on the spin bike
(I get it, proper form on the spin bike can be hard but at least fake it. Spinning really can be as hard or as easy as you want it to according to how YOU adjust the resistance. But I mean if we are doing Position 1, 2 or 3, please at least pretend to hold the position. There is this older woman at the gym who takes all these spinning classes and just bounces around in position 2 the entire class. Its distracting and annoying.)
Disgusting things in the Shower
There is some woman who hocks a loogie (I had to look up spelling on that one) in the shower. It makes me want to vomit. This is a public space and do you think we can't hear you? NASTY!
Taking forever to get ready
I find it hysterical how long it takes some people to get ready at the gym. They spend just as much time in the locker room as they do in the gym! I literally get ready in ten minutes. I don't think I've dried my hair in a year. No joke!
There is no need to sit on benches or sit on the floor naked. Put some clothes on people. Grossness!
I'm sure this is popular subject...
What are some of your biggest pet peeves at the gym?!?!
and.. Have you used a mini-loaf pan?
