...Or when I once did a 2 x5k set on a rower and got asked 'why was I doing so much?'.

I was once stuck in a hotel and decided to do a semi-long run on their treadmill. After I'd got warmed up, a rather fit-looking young lady stuck her head round the door and asked when I would be finished. "Oooh..." I said, looking at the clock and my pace. "In about 55 mins at this rate".

I could see the conflict running through her head and playing across her face like an accordion: - "is he serious?! Is that credible? If it is, can I ask him to share and share alike and stop at, say, 20 mins, like I'm thinking of doing? Would he refuse such a ridiculous shortening? Would I in any case look like a wimp when I stop after 20 mins?" In the end, she went "hmmm", left, and I never saw her again.

It's amazing what treadmill running does for mind-reading abilities, now I come to think of it ...

I have given up the gym and I tend to go running in any weather but during my time at my old Gym I saw a few people wearing baggy t-shirts going hell for leather on the rowing machine and getting their the t-shirt stuck on the back. They normally thrust forward, pulling themselves straight off the back and on to the floor.

I strangest thing I saw was a blind gentleman trying to get on to a treadmill already being used.

Oh, and I almost forgot the fat hairy blokes that would stand in the shower area with the curtain open, soaping their arses and talking to each other. Then they would just generally walk about with their tally whackers hanging out. Put some clothes on for god sake, you're making people want to throw up.

don,t like the loud lifters that have to roar out when they lift........... also .It really gets to me when  (usually women ) folks ramp up the treadmill then proceed to walk on it , hanging on for dear life...............you are not supposed to hold on, it does,nt count !!!!.........its cheating !

hate the sweaty men that drip literally over the machines and don,t wipe up after themselves.

You missed a trick there laddie.

The first thing I would have done is to offer her the treadmill.

Whats the second thing you would have done for her?

 

 

Up to her I'm afraid.

She might just say thanks and that's that. 

I wouldn't say another word myself. 

No ulterior motive me.

Ok. On one side we have the steam room. The other side the sauna. So why do people go in the sauna and chuck loads of water on the coals making it too humid to bear? You want steam then go to the steam room!

Haha, I like the fact the fat people sit in the sauna because its an 'easier' way to lose weight LOL.

Why is it that you always see fat people in the saunas??


can you honestly say you only see fat people in saunas and that everyone in them is fat apart from you........or is it that you can'tbelieve that a fat person has a right to a sauna..

how do you know that they are there as an easy way to lose weight .is that the reason you are there or is it to relax......

I have a sauna as a reward and relaxation  for swimming over 2.5k in the pool which i hate.......so you are saying that unless i am skinny i should just go and hide myself away so as to not offend you.......

I think fat people should have special gyms to go to, so that they don't offend David

What really gets me is when you see the gym instructors stood outside smoking

they do - its my local one,

i love the 11 o clock crowd, its all doctors referals that 'walk' on hte treadies for 20 minutes. WHY cant the "intructors" tell them to walk for 20 minutes at home and actually use the equipment at the gym which they dont have access to at home or use a cross trainer instead of using MY tread mill

Why should I have offered her the treadmill? A wobblearse is two a penny but If I get a chance to get in a run then I get it in before it goes

Well unless you're a cynic, the more you give the more you get back. If you are of a nature that grabs and hangs on to everything for oneself even in the face of others needs then good luck.

I observe such a type round my way. Living by his miserable self-ish.

seren nos - can you honestly say you hate swimming? I venture that you may well dislike it and find it hard work and/or boring but doubt very much you have such strength of feeling about it to actualy hate it.

Gyms have always been a let down to me. I blame it on the porn films I watched as a youth way back in the late 1980's. Every guy who went in the gym ended up getting an amazing blowjob from a beautiful instructor. Despite asking many times Keith at our gym won't play ball.
