    any of you take your cellphone with you to the gym. i see more and more people as the summer comes along, working out with cellphones. this one lady was using her shoulder to hold the phone next to her ear, while she was pressing db's :bowdown: :rofl:
    other than that i always see people standing around talking on their phones not really working out:ugh2:

    Bugs me as well. A guy walked into the gym last night being very animated about talking on his phone. So I pointed it out to everyone around me that "hey, that guys closing a business deal!"

    Then a kid came in at about 10:45, the gym closes at 11. He sad on the bench and texted until 10:50, then he sat on the cable row machine texting until 10:55. He then did 135lb deadlifts and seemed to be in excruciating pain until 10:58, then sat down and made a phone call :eek5:.

    I just leave it in the car. I'm in the gym to workout and I wouldn't pick it up anyway so there is no reason to bring it in. I leave my wallet in there too.

    If I'm waiting for an important call then I will, but that's rare.

    i've seen people talk on their cell phone while doing almost any exercise. and it's a VERY common sight with the women walking on the treadmills.

    Hell no! I don't want to be disturbed when I'm working out. Leave it in the car or at home.

    so just confront them and ask them if they're using it, and if they're just gonna sit there to let you use it.

    it really doesn't take much more than that :hsugh:

    I leave it in my locker while working out. If it's important they will leave a message.
