Anyone come across this. Why when taking part in a class do they have to have the music on so loud you can't hear yourself think never mind the instructor. Why?

Thing is,do they think it encourages anyone? plus the type of music some of them put on crikey.

Well I like it.  Couldn't imagine spin/rpm/pump/combat without loud music.  Can still ear the instructor...  That's what mikes are there for.  If you don't like their music you can always vote with your feet or take an MP3.

What really annoys me about gyms is music too loud to hear my MP3 player over. Music in classes is fine: they are designed around it (but good soundproofing is all too rare). There's evidence to suggest that people are most motivated by music they like, which isn't necessarily what others might consider motivating (I effing hate 'Simply the Best'), so policy should be pro-Mp3. Mind you, if music enhances your enjoyment of the gym, you'll be there longer and then people will cancel their memberships cos it's too busy.

Having worked in a gym, all I can say is spare a thought for the instructors. 8 hours a day, streamed music not of your choosing, repeating several times a day, changed once every 3 months. You could escape it in the staffroom, but that was next to the studio, and used to shake from the music from the classes. The relief of getting into my car to drive home with the archers/Radio 3/glorious silence was indescribable.

Happy - I had to google terry's TOGs to find out what it was, so I think there's hope yet.

Raich, what does that say about me then. Maybe I should remember people in glass housed should not throw stones.
