    As I was leaving my gym today I see this yellow poster next to the door, and it reads :ugh: :

    You asked for it, we got em!
    16 New Steppers
    6 New Elliptical
    13 New Treadmills
    11ty New Vagina Sanders
    :rl:

    (Numbers are estimates)

    We already have like 40 of each of those things, which are never all in use. (Only 35 Vagina Sanders, but still.) The gym is literally 75 % cardio equipment, 18 % Nautilus and 7 % Free Weights. I can't take this much longer, I may have to jump ship to the Answer is Fitness (link). :noes:

    And they Asked for it? What the shit is that? I can't ever get a fucking bench in this place, and all of the dumbells are falling apart, plus I've been bitching at these people to get another squat rack (We have 1.) for over a year. Hell, I showed them where to put it, and said I'd chip in.

    Jonno works out at the same gym as me, and if he isn't at least 35 % as pissed as I am, he's getting pinched so hard his delt will fall off.

    So, I ask you: What the fuck is the matter with people?

    im guessing its mainly old folks or noobs that goto the gym that you go to?

    id relocate to another gym if i were you. maybe you can ask back for some of the money you paid your membership with cause you arent satisfied with pussy ass equipment they have?

    hell yeah that shit sucks. but i don't expect much more from a YMCA.

    i actually feel like we have a good weight room for a YMCA. the shit is fairly new and DB's go up to 125.

    Yeah, except I use it for squats.

    And that doesn't matter, because I always see queer eyes using it for curls.

    ugh, at least your gym didnt use up the remaining weight room stuff on some completely useless machines. jesus fuck, how about an area to do deadlifts, another squat rack, or even a bench. nobody even uses this shit.

    both of the Golds that I go to are constantly upgrading cardio machines. im not talking adding a few here and there, i'm talking removing everything and adding the latest trendy machines. WTF is a GHR or Reverse Hyper so much to fucking ask? Its Golds Gym a fucking historic mecca of weightlifting :rant:

    yeah, I trained at the Gold's in Venice THE Gold's. They have no GHR, no reverse hyper, no mono, nothing really special except they had bumper plates.

    :werd: but of the 3 benches we have, at least 2 of them are constantly being used by half-repping 16 year olds in wifebeaters to show off their massive 12" guns.

    Fuck that, the commercial gym I train at now at least has a GHR, but its nothing compared to my little unknown free school gym, which has chalk boxes, a deadlift platform, bumper plates, a monolift, and a cambered bar.

    Now if I could just get them to buy a GHR and reverse hyper I'd be happy.

    Fuck yeah, I'll deal with waiting for a squat rack, if I know that I can get my rocks off as soon as I'm finished.
