Which gym are you at Gertie? And how do you know that she's a hooker, let alone how much she charges?

to answer your questions....

that'll cost you.

it was a nudge, nudge, wink type of rumour that included her working name

I've seen her price on her website (and her photos)

I always knew I was in the wrong game being a unpaid housewife.  Could have set meself up with a website and a Pay as you Go tariff.

Well Heow, you are half way there you got some kit what with the strap ons and lube, someone out there must have a sweaty betty fetish !!

...and she knows how to talk dirty.

Things that me go Eugh would be the guy on the treadmill next to me a while ago who smelt so bad I choked whilst trying to run. It was so bad I had to move treadmill. This was clearly stale stinky sweat and easily sorted out by washing training kit regularly.

Why do people hold onto the bar on the treadmill? We have a few women who do that. It doesn't look very comfortable.

Positives are the weight room junkies who move over for me to do my sets before resuming their muscle building and also the same guys who will advise on use of weight machines when I can't remember what I am doing. But boo to the guys who leave the machine on such a high weight I can't change it! Yay again to the guys who help move it!!

I have no gripe with the larger people in the gym, at least they are making an effort
but the weights guys who think 3 reps on a top weight are better than 2x15 or 2x20 on something they can manage
Clearly fitter people who will always go on the dreadmill rather than run outside.
I can understand staying in for newbies - we all know how awkward running outside can be the first time - but why do an 8 miler on the tready?
oh an +1 for those that leave the gym fresher than when they arrive...I'm dripping with sweat before Ive finished the warm up (although that could be the lack of air-con)

@Dustin - 3 reps on max weight may well be better than 2x15 or 2x20, unless you're a girl.

First time using a local gym, so keeping my head down and going through my routine.  A slight chap comes in in full tri gear and begins on the bench press - each rep includes a loud "Hooooweeeerrrrr."

I think "Fair enough" and carry on doing my thing with the "Hoooowwweeeerrrr - ing" going on in the background, abeit rising in volume. 

After a few sets and plenty more "Hooowweeerrrs" there is a particuarly loud one, but I've got my head facing away from the bench area so think no more about it. 

Suddenly the gym owner runs to the bench across shouting "You alright Dave ?" and ends up lifting the bar off the poor chap's throat. 

Volume decreased after that...

My last experience with the gym was in a class! Bodypump, and if anyones done this will know its fairly tough.

well this chap/meat-head came in from lifting his 3x10 reps of heavy weight to try the class (plus his OH was the instructor)

lets just say he got shamed.

another, is the meat-heads lifting so much weight they give off a roar when they slam the weights down like its some kind of tough man comp.

an hour seems a bit ambitious imo.

there might be a market for people paying 50 quid for 10 minutes.

I reckon I could venture to El Porto later on and sort out some type of Bright House style agreement for £3 a month but the interest is 2867%.  Could advertise myself in the window, doing A Plank in full Nike regalia in between the 70 inch LCD TV and the dove grey leather recliner chair that is a must have for my punters to do his leg exercises on.

A few weeks ago I watched a guy on a sit-up bench eat a packet of monster munch, he didn't do any sit-ups.

However the most disturbing sight was a really ugly woman (Ps I'm gorgeous) wearing denim hot pants and a woolly cardigan practise her sexy catwalk walk on a treadmill that was set to about 1kph.

The most distracting thing I've ever seen in the gym (and don't judge me here) was a fairly fit 17/18 year old in black leggings, but when she sat down, you noticed that they were slightly see through.  So here she is, on a leg press machine with the gusset of her pink thong smiling at me through her leggings whilst I'm trying to sort my triceps and shoulders out.  I swear she knew exactly what she was doing.  And yeah, I know that as a dad, I wouldn't be rightly happy about some 30 year old guy oggling my 17/18 year old daughter's goodies...

I do love it when people wear cardigans to the gym. If you're still wearing one whilst exercising - maybe you need to put a BIT more effort in ?

The fact she turned around and gave you a wink should have been the first clue she knew exactly what she was doing. 

Sadly no wink, but the overly innocent face might have been a clue.  Well, that and the choice of obviously visible underwear.  The only way she could have been more obvious is wearing a luminous yellow Borat style mankini.
