My Gym Pet Peeves.

Anyone who goes to the gym on a regular basis, has some pet peeves which really bother you and just take you out of your concentration. So have I! Today, I decided to give you an overview of my pet peeves, wanna have a read?








People who find it necessary to breath/ groan/ shout too loud when they pick up heavy weights or when they're doing a series of maybe not-so heavy exercises. I find it so unnecessary! If you just breath normally and watch your breath while performing your exercises, there is really not a need to groan like a grizzly bear.


Having a chat and not doing a sh... I mean, if you come to the gym, I'm guessing you want to work out, no? A gym is not a cafe, nor a bar, nor somewhere you can just have a dialogue about the latest car you've bought or the restaurant you've visited. Go outside for a little while so you don't disturb people who actually wanna work out!


Leaving a sweaty mess. I find it disgusting to use a machine after somebody who literally left a puddle of sweat on his/ her seat. First of all, use a towel to lay on the machine if you know you're going to sweat a lot - it's really not that hard - and if there is some sweat on the machine, just take a piece of paper, some product to clean it and make sure it's gone. It's really not that pleasant for other people and to be honest, I will perform my exercise in any other way possible.


Keeping a machine occupied for a whole entire hour. My gym is relatively small, and for the most part, we just have one machine of each kind, and we don't even have all the machines that a lot of big gyms have. You can image it's really frustrating if someone thinks it necessary to perform every single exercise on one machine, when you can perfectly do it on the ground, on a bench, just wherever really. Think about the other people who want to do their sets as well.


Men who peek and just aren't embarrassed. I know that men like a but and that some go completely wild when your top is a little shorter, but pleaseee. We all have a but, we all have breasts, it's really not that special you know. It's just really uncomfortable to perform squats or burpees when you can just feel a pair of eyes staring at your but.
