Things I hate about the gym

  1. People on their cell phones in the locker room, or worse yet, in the equipment rooms. In case you were not aware, the gym specifically mandates that people keep their phones put away because of several assholes using their camera phones in locker rooms a while back. And for the love of God, don’t talk on your phone while you are on a machine, especially when others are waiting to use it.
  2. Hey folks! If you are running just fast enough to pass people on the inner track lane but not faster than the person jogging/running and coming up behind you, then either speed up or wait to pass.
  3. Dear asshole who sees everyone on the track moving in the same direction: please follow the flow of traffic and walk in the same direction to get to the stretching/weights area at the back end of the track instead of walking against the flow of traffic in the runners’ passing lane.
