    There's this middle aged fat ass dude who always wears a belt that talks to anyone and everyone. Thankfully I always have my headphones on so I never get talked to.

    He was talking to some guy on a bike (captive audience I guess) - the fat guy turned around for a second, turned back around to talk to the guy and he'd gotten up and left :rofl:

    Why don't some people understand that the gym isn't social time? :confused:

    offtopic but;
    There is a chick at my gym, she's a goddess, and wears the skimpiest little outfit you ever saw. They are tiny skin-tight gym shorts, and a skin tight top with alot of fake cleavage popping out the top, and he nipples show through every day. She is just asking to be harassed (I've never tried to talk to her) by every man in the place.

    Anyways she goes around looking for men checking her out and makes it a point to tell these "perverts" to keep thier eyes to themselves, and if anyone starts to talk to her she makes it very clear she isnt there to socialize and to leave her alone. If the bitch didnt dress like a total fitness-hooker she'd probably be fine. (she's so hot though, that I hope she never stops :x: )

    Same here. I'd rather have some over friendly guys offering to spot me than have everybody there giving me the evil eye every 10 seconds. I just wear headphones, so if somebody tries to get my attention I have to take them out to talk.

    At this old gym I used to go to, there was a women who was just like this. Except she had that "porno" star look and she had a husband or boyfriend. Anyways, she used to dress the same and when she would pick up weights she would make sure all the guys saw her bend over. The funny thing was, she would let you talk to her and flirt a bit, but when he husband/boyfriend came, she acted like she had no idea who you were (seen it a few times).

    Headphones ftw.

    I never get bothered unless it's a good friend or my workout partner. I must say it's damn nice to get a workout done w/o being bothered and socalizing. I'll socalize before or after, but during my workout it's my time, just leave me alone.

    God that pisses me right off when that happens.

    Even worse is when people swarm an area. There will be a group of 6-7 indo canadian's (east indians) who will take one area, and circut train it. They won't even let you work in. :rant2: They will stay there for 1h+ too.
