Now don’t start planning to deliver your favorite meals. We fully perceive how difficult it’s going to be. In addition, no one has stated that letting go of FOOD is the only technique to keep the party and believe in us, that we are not even able to think about giving up McDonald’s so much. That’s precisely why we love going to the health club which could be a gold health club, crunch health club or maybe a CrossFit health club. You guessed it right; our mantra is: ‘Eat, burn, repeat’!
Now we have come across all kinds of people within the health club, from health-crazed loops to those who simply want to burn that more fat earned during the holiday season. There are times when fellow gym attendees make us laugh a little too hard. Some try to impress a lady (which is less annoying), some occupy a house number after which there are those who make it improper!!

Gym Man Intervened
“I once saw this weird little brother stacking 4 plates on each side in the SMITH MACHINE. He started pushing the bank and the machine was going to crumble. Now, this guy was pretty big, but this REALLY HUGE black guy came over and tried to tell the guy that he was going to break the machine and that he should do the bench with the bar. The guy goes crazy and says something stupid like “MAN YOU AINT MY FREAKING DAD. GET LOST!” I used to be extraordinarily excited, as I couldn’t wait to see this black man tear this guy apart. However, one of the many members of the health club staff made the man leave before I could see him be demolished. Very unhappy.” ([deleted])
Beginning With A Cute One At The Gym
“This is nicer than anything else, but…
I used to train in age group swimming, and our athletics center had a time each week where the weight room was shared by the children swimming and a children’s camp with emphasis on physical fitness. Everyone was 12 and older, and we had a lot of adults on deck, but it still required the children to be quite mature. Only children who passed a “test” of safety lifting (and received abundant parental approval) have been allowed to use free weights. Not many children even bothered, so the free weight space was largely used to stretch.
Anyway, sooner or later I hear the tinkling of free weights hitting each other, and I turn around to yell at whoever’s touching them. Two of the women inside the health camp are making free weights designs, along with a smiling face and a flower.” (EmeraldGirl)
All For A Free Membership
“This is more of a disgusting gym story. But I volunteered at a gym for a long time cleaning machines and cleaning windows and stuff like that for a free membership. Well, one day, there was a new guy who was pretty overweight and he was obviously very excited to be in the gym. He did about an hour of cardio and then he started to lift. He was making way, too much weight with terrible shape in most of his free elevators and getting around a half repetition in the machines. But anyway, while Benching, the guy breaks an O-Ring and spills diarrhea all over the bank. And you know who cleans it?
The poor fool who wants a free membership. That was horrible.” (3lephant)
Get Off My Territory
“There was a guy using a rowing machine behind me. I had it set at 10, of course (I’m on a college campus and my scanner is in Frat Row), and obviously I was coming and going, using his impulse to make it easier.
How was this obvious? Because he kept banging on the back of my machined oar with the front of his. He pushed him across the floor with his push forward.
Stinking eye is not enough to describe the look I gave him.” (ericmm76)
They Weren’t Doing It Proper
“The kind of form I see in the ergs is abysmal. Most people have no idea what they’re doing, but I’ve seen some particularly funny things:
A girl was driving with her legs while the oar was almost on her chest. Halfway through the race, she shot her arms forward, removing all tension on the chain and then immediately threw her at her with her back.
Two hugeguys sit next to me. They proceed to a 500 meter race. Despite snorting and snorting, they are so bad that they can barely get less than 2:12 splits. They can’t keep up and crash and burn in the last 200 meters.
There’s a pretty old guy who usually comes at me with an erg. He constantly moans and moans loudly as if he were suffering, like any other blow. Which is not so surprising because its shape is so bad that it seems to cause you pain. I was worried he’d hurt himself so I tried to offer him some advice once but apparently he’s been rowing for 20 years.
That guy who takes the erg next to you and proceeds to row either on 125 spm and 3/4 slides, or he can’t keep up a steady pace and is jumping between 18-34 without rhyme or reason, while energy in horrible shape. Being stationary next to that guy is like trying to hold a note in a chorus full of deaf tones.” ([deleted])
When Encouragement Resulted In A Laughter Match
“So I saw this guy going really heavy in the squats and I was pretty excited about it, so I started yelling “OH YEAH! DO IT BROTHER! DO IT! OH YES!”
Sadly, my father makes an attempt at encouragement doesn’t seem to help as he just broke into a laughing match. And every time I noticed it in the gym for several days.
Yours faithfully, a random big black guy.” (inscrutable_chicken)
Humorous Is The Phrase
“I have a few.
I was waiting for a girl to finish using a specific abs machine. She was wearing that scarf on top of the robe that completely covered her, and she wasn’t using enough weight.
One looked like Napoleon Dynamite.
An old man, extremely thin and flaccid, wore old gym clothes, with super-short shorts and a headband.
A short guy, though big, was well known to almost everyone who frequented that gym. He growled and moaned and made a funny variety of noises while lifting unimpressive weights.
In another gym, this guy has his dog running on a treadmill. I have pictures if anyone is curious to see.” (jerair)
That’s What They Name Him
“I go to a 24-hour gym as I usually don’t have time to exercise until 10:00 or so. There is an access card and a sign on the sheet where you write down your name and arrival time. This guy who goes every Wednesday at the same time I only know him as ICEPICK!” (justryde)
Mirror Mirror On The Wall
“All stretching mats (or anything else you want a mat for) are along a wall completely covered with mirrors.
I was practicing headbutting and fell into the mirror and broke a ~8 x 8 piece of glass. This was probably 3 weeks ago. Yesterday I took a small piece of glass from my hand.” (menge101)
Goggles Did The Trick
“Random Asian guy enters the weight room with a lifting belt, gloves and glasses. Everyone looks at him as “wtf?”
Then it goes off and deadlifts ~ 400lb with ease.
Everyone gets stuck. He still seemed fun, though.” (dumbest1pot)
Just A Helpful Tip
“My community college gym had an automated shoulder press machine that required a test tug to calculate the weight to be added to the exercise. However, for some reason the machine always gave me twice my body weight in the negative blow, plus the machine did not have an abdominal belt or any form of harness. I lowered the handles, after which the handles pulled me out of the seat in the destructive. As a quick separation, it is not good to start doing pull-ups on the machine at the time it occurs.” (TBatWork)
Russian Child Goes Loopy
“The gym I go to is part of a hotel so there are many tourists who exercise while on holiday. One day I was doing sit-ups and there was a Russian kid on the treadmill going crazy. His heart was literally coming out (I think he had the tape at 14 or something) when suddenly there was a power outage and the tape jammed. He basically has his face planted on the tape panel. I ran to see if he was okay. and when he got up both burst into uncontrollable laughter. I never saw him again after that.” (jowtis)
Timing Was Not Proper
“When I started lifting weights in college, a black guy came up to me and asked me to give him a hand with some heavy push-ups. He wanted me to put a 100-pound plate on his back and take it off when he was done.
I’ve never seen anyone do push-ups with a plate on their back, and I had no idea where to put the plate. So I said, “Where do you want me to put the weight on your black? BACK, back, I said back!”.
He just laughed, and I put the load on his highest black.” (midge)
When You Can Not Management Your Laughter
“If something remotely funny happens while I’m lifting, I lose all focus and drop the weight.” (ejal0)
Humorous Treadmill Incident
“I once saw a guy on a treadmill fall. I was speeding and there was a wall right behind him so I hit the wall. A group of us looked at him as he stood up, looked around and in an attempt to save his face, (I suppose) jumped back on the tape as quickly as possible. He was still running at full speed. He put his foot on, made a semi turn and hit the wall again. I couldn’t help but laugh and then decided to give up the treadmill after that.” ([deleted])
