    I went to the gym yesterday and it was unbearable, there where so many people there it was a piss off. Waiting for a treadmill, and free weights waiting for everything. I mean a week ago it was dead and nice like usual.

    Anyone else coming across this, is it just the resolution rush or what?

    On the bright side I used a spinning bike and I found that way better then the other bikes that have all your stats and time and what not.

    My gym was busy but no one really does the stuff I do...they were mostly all on the treadmills, ellipticals and curling , when I'm lifting the real weight...I can't complain :)

    give it 2 weeks, the new years guilt will drop off by then, dropping the number of people. i'm seeing that too, but luckily they've got classes going which keep them occupied.

    Around this time of the year I switch up my workout times. I used to go between 5-8, but when it gets really busy like now (Lifetime Fitness) I have to either go before 3pm or after 9pm to get anything done.

    I made the mistake last week of going to the gym at ~ 5:30. Took me 90min to do a 45min workout, I kept bumping into people, weights were scattered everywhere, and I had to wait IN-LINE to use the sauna and showers :rolleyes:

    I won't make that mistake again.

    Meh, people just go after their classes and it's busy during half an hour and apart from the curling in the squat rack, most of the things are free

    not here. any time after 12noon on almost any day and it's packed. the weight room is just too small; there's a lot of space wasted in the lobby, they should put cardio machines there and double the size of the weight room.

    but really, the problem is the shitsucking turds acting like they're still in highschool. grow the fuck up, dickwits.

    Don't go to the gym at 5 oclock if you can help it. I usually go around 12 and doesn't seem to be any more people in there then the regular crew i see.

    My gym is horrible (La Fitness). They ran a New Years special for a no money down membership. The gym was over it's capacity prior to the holidays. Monday's seem to be the worst with everyone doing chest.

    I have to switch my routine depending on what's available at the time. I couldn't stick my arm out anywhere in the gym without touching someone working out. It's even worse when douche nozzles stand in front of the dumbell racks to do shrugs or curls. :mad:

    The GA Tech gym is busy at the start of every semester and about 2-3 weeks before spring break. Dead week and finals week are the best times to lift, it's like walking into a fucking crypt.

    I've noticed between 12am-3pm on MWF that the gym is pretty empty and I can ignore the "30 min only cardio signs" and on Tues. and Thurs. 7am-11am is pretty empty(except for the older people). I have passed by the gym ~5-close and its nearly packed. They have classes going but still even with them going its hard to do anything without having to wait. Aug.-Dec. was sooo nice compared to now :wtc:
