If you have nothing nice to stay, then come sit next to me because today we’re discussing fitness pet peeves.
1. Dear super-stong guy at the gym: I know it’s totally awesome that you can lift 900 pounds, and I am truly impressed, but TAKE OFF THE WEIGHTS WHEN YOU’RE DONE!!! Seriously! I’m a little person with little muscles and it takes me like 15 minutes to take all your weights off the machine. You’re cutting into my workout time and giving me a hernia in the process.
2. Dear gym owners/managers – PLEASE FIX BROKEN THINGS IN A TIMELY MANNER. I’m not even referring to treadmills. Please fix the shower door handle on the second stall that has been broken since May. I know you know that it’s broken because sometimes you will randomly place an “out of order” sign on it. The gym is right next to Home Depot. Your repair guy could just walk there, order the right model, and get it fixed. This Kohler model looks quite similar to what’s there now; I found it online for $170.89. Just sayin’…
3. Dear person in charge of the music – YOU DON’T NEED TO TURN THE VOLUME TO 11. VOLUME 10 IS JUST FINE. I know, I just sounded like an old person, “turn down that music!” but damn it I am an old person and when I have to shout over such subtle lyrics as, “Ima pop that p**sy” to my trainer, who is standing right next to me, that gets old after awhile too.
Whew! Now that I got that off my chest I can be a positive individual again…until I see the broken door handle again…
What are your fitness pet peeves?
