    Its been banned at Bally's at least.
    I think the hands free ones are still allowed. Unfortunately.

    I hate it when one rings when I'm doing a really heavy set. I want to go over and 'accidentally' drop the weight on it.

    Hot girl walking by...
    Typical out of shape gym member sucking in his gut and talking on his cell...
    "... yeah...yeah... so put me down for 2000 shares."
    When hot girl is out of hearing range.
    "Sorry honey.I don't know what happened. Yes. I'll bring home some milk."

    I have to check my phone when I work out... I am on call 24 hours :( I always made fun of those guys too...
    however, if I miss a call or get a call I never pick up in the gym - I go outside or to the lobby.

    I think its the camera phones that they're mostly concerned about. That's why the cell phones are prohibeted also in the changerooms.

    they banned camera phones at Goodlife, I wish they'd extend it to all phones though. Its fucking distracting and one day it will (if it hasn't already) cause an injure

    Innnteresting..I wish my gym would ban 'em. I have to laugh at all the people who think they're SOOO important that they can't be away from the phone for ONE MINUTE! There's one guy at my gym who's always making evening plans, calling girls, etc while he's on the elliptical. I can get sex way easier than he can and I leave my cell in the locker room, thank you very much :rofl:

    I wish my gym would ban them too. When you walk through that door you put your life on hold. Unless it's like an emergency or something. Not one of your homeboys trying to see what you're up to.

    i appreciate that the most about the gym. My home life is left at the door. no kids distracting me, no hubby distracting me, just me, my trainer and the weights.
