Thought's We All Have At The Gym

June 26, 2017

Going to the gym can be a great way of releasing tension, working on our fitness goals and even socializing with friends - but that doesn't mean we don't have a grumble while we're there! There are certain things that annoy the crap out of me when I'm there and I'm sure other avid gym-goers can relate.

Its that time again
"Why didn't I bring water??" - Yeah this one is me most of the time, I always figure I won't need a drink because I'm "just doing legs" or "just doing abs" and I end up gasping like a fish out of water because I was too stubborn to bring hydration.

"Stop staring at me before I end you." - I actually had this quite recently where a creepy old dude was staring right at me while chewing his gum while I was on the exercise bike. He also did it to my boyfriend and I can't tell if he was trying to be intimidating or was just strange, either way I was getting super annoyed. I also have this when I'm running and a dude is on the treadmill next to me, its super off putting.

"What the hell is this for??" - So even though I'm pretty familiar with most gym equipment some of it is still a mystery to me, they all have a purpose obviously or they wouldn't be there but I have no idea what that purpose is.

"Please stop texting and either use the machine or leeaveeee" - I HATE people who just sit on their phone for a good half hour on a piece of equipment I need to use, especially when they just do one little rep now and again to justify it. I see you, you're not working out your secret isn't safe!!

"Ive only been doing cardio for five minutes?!" - I don't hate cardio but some days I'm not in the mood and and I just want to get it out the way.  It can be so draining already feeling shattered when you've just started but that probably says a lot about the nights sleep I had before. Oops.

  1. I could relate to some of these! When you're dying to get a shot of a machine and someone is just sitting on their phone or having a wee chat with someone and you could have done your bit on the machine & left by the time they finish! It grinds my gears! And when you forget water - yes that sucks! And also when you forget headphones!

    Great post!
