    you know those people who just haven't got the first clue what they're doing, just randomly going from machine to machine. I think to myself
    ["well at least they've got one thing going for them. They're in the gym trying which is better than most people. I hope they stick with it."]

    Try to be nice to people.

    When I start getting mad at one for wasting time on a piece of equipment I use, I try to always think about that, and how I was the same way 3 years ago.

    No matter how hard I try though, I can never find much sympathy for the morbidly obese women in spandex though :madbarf:

    I get annoyed if they're wasting a piece of equipment, but usually if I ask if I can work in, they're magically done anyway.

    I dont' offer advice unless asked anyway.

    I have to catch myself sometimes. there was this one kid in there, he was pittfull. Prolly 180lbs, 5'nothing, just fat and dumpy. He needed a hair cut really really bad, real bad acne, really bad facial hair, fanny pack, the list goes on and on. Just had no clue what he was doing. At first I was like OMG this poor kid. I felt like Arnold standing next to him, he made me feel tall and at 5'9" thats hard to do. All I could do was laugh in my head but then think well, at least he's trying. I hope he learns to look in a mirror though.

    had a kid just like that over the summer. i rolled in yesterday at 8am and saw him there looking much better (still chubby...but not nearly as big) i was actually proud of him and walked up to him and said "nice work dude".

    people just need ONE person to say "you're looking good" or "nice work" and it'll make them continue pushign themselves.

    yeah, I love that shit. When you see all these dumpy people in there, or fucking tiny...which 1% will stick with it and make gains, or you see that guy who was once nasty fat, now looks good. I bet his life is alot better.


    This one dude, who's like a fucking god, made a comment to me a few months ago. He said, "You look like you've put on 20 lb since you started here." It made my fucking millenium.

    there's this one older woman that comes in the gym. Prolly 60-65 and 130-150lbs over weight. She spends like 30 minutes on the ab machine. My first thought is jesus, do something that will burn some calories you fat cow, but I'm always like well she's better off here than in front of the boob tube.

    for real. I always try to make comments to guys (or girls for that matter) who've stuck with it and really made progress. It lets them know that even the "bigger" or more fit people are noticing and I think it helps them a lot.
