Default Amusing things you've seen in the gym

Today at the gym I was next to a guy who was using the ab crunch machine. OMG. He'd loaded the weights and proceeded to crunch, but he wasn't using it properly, there was no movement from the hip and it looked like he was just slowly nodding his head. Then between sets he'd sit there and drum out whatever it was he was listening too.

It amused me while I was doing my thing.

Oh, so many amusements at the gym!

The old guy who wears tight clothes and compulsively checks his weight; the woman who once used the Stairmaster while wearing a long dress (ankle length); the flibbertigibbet man who considers himself an honorary trainer and offers unsolicited workout advice, but only to attractive women; the old guy who told me I wasn't working hard enough on a stationary leg weight machine and stood beside me yelling "Push! Push!" like I was having a baby; the other old guy who grunted continually while riding a bike.........where does it end?

Oh, it's inevitable. People tend to distinguish themselves at the gym.

I know I work hard not to act as weird as I'd like.

I didn't see this but one of the women who works at my old gym says she saw someone straighten their hair and then go swimming.

I just haven't liked people at my gym as much since my boots were stolen. Everyone seems like the potential thief to me.

Last month, CL. I cried.

I do look at people's footwear, but the thief probably won't be dumb enough to wear my boots to the gym from which she stole them. On the other hand, you never know.

People (usually young guys) doing push ups with the form and control of a caterpillar.

Today an older lady put on her dark square-framed glaucoma(?) sunglasses before walking on an indoor treadmill.

Well .. nothing funny but the other day I was running next to a girl about my age who was beautiful. She was jogging and I swear to the good men above, the farts were coming with her every step! I almost gagged. I had to actually get off the treadmill.

Ew.^

I was next to a smelly old guy today. Was it pipe tobacco, or just old guy funk? I was glad when he left.

(I know, I know, someday I'll be the old smelly lady. For all I know, I already am ((dog).

I keep seeing guys lifting weights while wearing flip flops. I hope they don't drop their dumbbells on their feet!

There's a lady with a deformity who regularly uses the treadmill at my gym. What's weird about her isn't her body, it's the cute little stuffed animal she carries everywhere. She doesn't seem impaired mentally, but I'm not sure why she carries the toy.

I'm not asking. It could be an anti-anxiety device. And anyway, it's cute. But it is unusual to see an adult always clutching a stuffed animal.

Oh, it was gross!

I wanted to say, "Who the hell are you, my obstetrician?" but the fire alarm went off and thank goodness, he was interrupted. He did, however, corner me as we were collecting our i.d. cards and say, "See? I told you to push harder."

Did I mention this guy was a total stranger who approached me while I was minding my own business, listening to my iPod, using a weight machine?

Next time you see him yell "it's all you bro"

I saw someone with a cap on backwards and sunglasses balanced on top. On a recumbent bike. On a cold, windy and rainy day. Lots of logic there.

I'm sorry about your boots Ninj.

It's okay CL, but thanks. It happened a few weeks ago, and I'm trying not stare at everyone else's feet, looking for my boots.

Fortunately, I don't think I'd recognize the old guy if I did see him again; I worked hard at avoiding eye contact.

I like people in hats and sunglasses indoors, on a rainy day. So sensible! (kidding.)
