Phones-at-the-Gym Etiquette 101. by Kevin Gray. May 1, 2019. No Comments. Share it: The gym, 6:15 p.m.

You’ve just come off the. Since phones have not yet been banned from the gym, let’s review cell phone etiquette to reduce the nuisance factor while we are there. Phone Presence Aside from the obvious health benefits like lower blood pressure, weight and cholesterol, gym workouts are a great way to reduce stress. As noted in Fitness 19 ’s Etiquette 101 — Cell Phones and Gyms, “It goes without saying that if you must bring your phone to the gym it should be set on silent. Ideally, you should also disable the vibrate feature.

Buzzing and beeping from dozens of phones is an unwelcome distraction in any setting, and especially at the gym.”. Bottom line is, be smart, and considerate about your cell phones while at the gym. Save the social networking for the locker room, and keep your mind focused on what you are at the gym for to begin with, a good pump.

I’ve been wanting to talk about this topic FOREVER, but I always forget to bring it up! What do you think about cell phones at the gym? It seriously makes me want to reach across the treadmill and throttle someone when they are talking on their phone.

Here’s wh. Don’ts of Phone Etiquette; Why Phone Etiquette Is So Important. As mentioned in the intro, phone etiquette is not a big deal when it comes to everyday calls we all make.

The things are different when on the other end of the call happens to be a customer or, even better, a newly acquired prospect!At Planet Fitness in Boston, for example, there is a very strict anti-cell phone policy. You can only use your gadget in the lobby. Once you’re on the machines, pumping away, there is no tolerance.

  • The best gym I ever joined would get on the PA and call people out for not putting away weights.

    That place ran like a swiss watch.

  • Hey brother…just came across your vid….excellant…spot on….its ridiculous at my gym….people take thier phones into the steam room…the jacuzzi….this guarding thing is everywhere…..expletive phone zombies are everywhere…thanks for the laugh…youve earned another suscriber

  • You’re a Fitness nut you know nothing about gym etiquette… gym Hogs they monopolize several pieces of gym equipment… you have Space Invaders… they have no plan they cherry pick there exercises…. they don’t return the weights… they mix up the dumbbell rack and sandwich the plates… they scatter the benches and leave the safeties on the floor… some will drop the weight stacks and drop heavy dumbbells on the floor… this happens in every gym… they think rudeness is Macho!

  • These are the worst sorts of human beings, just like lemmings. hey “macho” bodybuilder sitting on the machine pecking at your phone you look totally ridiculous!

  • There’s a lot of really really pretty pretty totally pretty girls at my gym but that’s not what I’m there for and anyway if it goes south in process of getting to know that person….then it’s gonna be awkward when you come back to workout….like Mike Rashid says for the fellas….DON’T DO IT, if she starts with you…THEN YOU FOLLOW. On a side note: I do get a friendly stare,even got a comment once by a hottie, but the workouts the main reason I’m there…..now let one of them approach me in a supermarket or walking through the mall(where my gyms located)…IT’S ON.

  • Oookay here we go….1)hygene 2) Gym employees at front desk. (Talking/ joking around, rude, no welcoming skills ect..) 3)Lockers that are closed but when you open it there is clothes in it. ( put a damn lock so i dont have my hopes up thinking its a free locker) seesh. 4)The guy flexing his “incredible” physique all the time in the change room mirror, when infact he would place dead last in a show. 5)The guy awkwardly staring in the change room. Are u gay? 5) the guy in the change room that dosnt say nothing and stands there for a while, but then says ” hey im just right there” meaning your blocking his locker! Just say it from the begining dont Just stand there awkwardly quiet. 6)naked change room struter 7)just the lack of cleanliness in the washroom/changeroom 8) sauna etiquette (close the door behind you, dont stare ect…) 9) the guy that decides for all to hear his music out load while changing �� 10)the agressive guy that walks in the changeroom after a workout as if he is ready to fight ( slamming the locker, throwing his bag down hard, heavy breathing) 11) the guy/guys that everytime you look around the gym after a set or what ever, they are doing the same and i always lock eyes with him/ them and it seems like your “only” watching them but your not your looking around at everyone. (I know, thats a weird one) 12) the stupid guy that knows your watching yourself in the mirror while im working out and he gose in front of you and starts his pussy workout reps blocking your view of your self working out. 13) girls that think your hitting on them but you just want to be friendly 14) ego lifters 15) the douche guys that are loud and are Always at the gym no matter what time you go. There always there! 16) the comparer. He comes beside you and sizes you up in the mirror comparing himself to you. Then gets put to shame ( lol) 17)that one curious guy �� that you catch staring at you through 50 different mirror angles. Makes you wonder, where the hell is he? and then you start to look around. 18) water fountain etiquette. Fill your water bottle after! the poor thirsty guy is dying for a sip of water like a Somalian desert survivor. Let him drink first 19) like that guy who blocks you in the mirror, but he puts his dumbells in the empty dumbell spot that you clearly emptied to see your self through to the mirror, and there is a whole bunch of empty spots to begin with, plus the dumbells dont belong in that empty spot ✋ moron! 20) gym clothes fashion. That’s a whole other topic lol. Great post��������

  • The one time I held my phone in the gym was when a female friend of mine who gets beaten and raped by her boyfriend was almost starting kinda sorta thinking about leaving him and using my background as a psychological counselor to help her get away; we were texting regularly. I kept it just in case she got the nerve and I could set it up right away.

    Kinda like self defense laws, one shot to the heart is legal. If you kick the body, you got to jail. If there isn’t an immediate threat, put the phone down! You can read about what your wife overheard Cindy say for the 5th time today when you’re in the car idling by the park like child molesters used to do.

  • LOL I love this, but unfortunately there are too many bros at my gym who didn’t get the memo that this channel is satirical and literally do what was demonstrated in this vid.

  • Well for one I’m going to take my phone because I need my music because the music they play at the gym is fucking horrendous plus I need to see the time other than that I don’t sit on machines and text constantly like most people do hence the reason why they have no progress

  • You guys forgot the golden rule regarding dumbbells and barbells: Always rerack your weights, your mother is not there to pick them up for you.

  • I do not take a phone in the gym, I stay shorter than most people. because I don’t sit still. take lighter weights but do more repeats. and I get hot like a steam engine. when warmed up can increase weight. Weak people!!!

  • Steve, I think some of the footage in this video has been appropriated by another YouTuber. Check out
    “Epidemic: phones in the gym Raw footage” uploaded 11/1/2018 on this channel: I’ llPumpYouUp.com. If I am wrong, please delete my comment.

  • They all look like shit too, what a surprise.
    I find more men do it than women. If you can’t put the phone away for 45mins or so and focus on your routine, you’ve got an addiction. It takes your mind off what you’re there to do, you can’t possibly have a good workout. Piss off and leave your lame ass at home. Guys in their 20s are the worst.

  • Chicks need to build their own fucking gym. Just pack it full of cardio machines. Stop telling men how to act in the gym. If we are going to have this conversation, then women need to learn to BTFO and stop trying to control men all the time. This is all we have left.

  • Excellent video, this should be shown at all gyms, to gym goers when they obtain their memberships, or existing members (some of whom might need a refresher).  

  • I don’t wanna start any trouble so i won’t say where I go……but there’s a few people in there that don’t KNOW exactly what they are doing!!! Another thing is THE EGO!!!! A few dudes (that have a really nice physique and are very strong)…..really really have a problem. I have a decent shape to me, nothing to write home about….but some dudes will come and do what I’ve termed “FAKE LIFTING”,like DUDE, YOU WHERE JUST ON A MACHINE WAAAYYY OVER THERE……AND THEY LEAVE ALL THEIR STUFF: WATER BOTTLE, TOWELS, GYM BAGS………COME OVER WHERE I’M AT,JUMP ON AN IDENTICAL MACHINE AND DO THESES CRAZY ACTION TYPE REPS….”FOR 1 SET”…..THEN GO BACK TO THE MACHINE/BENCH WHERE THEY WERE….been going for about 6 months and as of 2 wks ago….I just close my eyes and wait til the fuckery is over….I’m ME and am only in comp with MYSELF……SMDH

  • Would like to see Arnold Shwarzenegger go into this gym and clean up all the marshmellows,Q,Ahnold its Xplorer Steve,have this problem in my gym……A,no worries Steve,Ahnold will TERMINATE the problem…..hmmm see a possible snl skit.Indeed that’s pathet.

  • This is bias towards men. Every time I go to the gym creepy ass girls stare at me and make me feel uncomfortable. I am there to workout, I’m not a piece of meat, ladies.

  • I use to call the gym the meat market now its gotten so bad over the last 5 yrs or so i wont even go i use to go at lunch time 10 on the tread to warm up 30 min lifting fast shower then back to work so now i just play golf and carry my bag couple times a week and that’s my work out i am in my 60’s and i don’t see anyone my age carrying so i must be doing okay but go get them Steve the whole world has become lost do to the cellphone not a good thing

  • Here’s one: ignorants that occupy more than one machine/station at a time, they say “but i’m super-setting”. Yesterday this cow weighing about 260lbs and her pimp set up 3 (three) machines. Turned out one I wanted to use next, was not used by anybody, they felt was theirs and could not be used by me. Okay how about that one, yes we using that too, and that one yes we using that too. What makes you think it’s okay? pimp said “because I pay monthly membership”. He didn’t have much to say when offered to discuss that theory with a manager at a front desk, just bowed his head down. No point in spending time teaching them, plenty of other things to do. I had a great workout. That monkey had run his mouth for a bit in my vicinity later on with some vague threats, but as long as it’s not an imminent threat to me he can flap his lips till blue in a face, no harm will come to him.

  • So since when are you not allowed to sweat in the gym? And who died and left this lady boss to where she makes all the rules of what can and cannot happen in the gym? What does she work for Planet Fitness?

  • You are not old fashioned, you are just plain right. I once waited ten minutes for a calf press machine (the only one in the area I was working out) for a guy to do three sets of five, and then spend the rest of his time on his phone. You should record yourself or a friend confronting these people. So many views to be gained posting a “confronting phone users at the gym” series.

  • Hi there Steve Thanks for the compliments! Unfortunately this frustrating issue existed even before cell/smart phones. In the past, people always just sat there and rested or would chat with others in between their sets. We recommend politely asking to work in. We are aware of your concern though and will keep it in mind. Team LVAC

  • no, Gym Etiquette is: ask the closest person to a bench/machine if anyone is on it. RE-RACK YOUR [email protected]#ING WEIGHTS! and don’t sit there talking on to someone for a half an hour not letting anyone use the equipment that you’re “using and have 1 more set to do”… dick.

  • Here’s some gym Etiquette, or gym common sense: Don’t go to a gym with a can of Rockstar or Monster, or Starbucks coffee with you. It makes you look dumb.

  • short shorts are gym shorts right? phone for music, advice from someone that looks ripped as fuck compared to a skinny or fat PT hmm i’ll chat to the guy that i know it works for if he gives me advice…wtf is this place!!!

  • I see this shit all the time that’s literally mainly every guy at the gym I see guys doing more texting and talking than they do lifting weights especially the overuse of selfies that’s why most of them look the exact same as they did when I walk in the door it’s like why even pay for a gym membership if you’re not going to work out just constantly sit on equipment texting talking on the phone that pisses me off so much if you’re not going to use it get the fuck off of it

  • Awesome I love it. I remember at work people used to fight over the TV in the break room, now I go in and sometimes its not even on and the room is half full. All heads down, no conversations going on just text text text. Or maybe the guy with giant headphones jamming out to the latest and greatest tunes. No one talking not even complainingits work for Christ sakes, there is plenty to bitch about! LOL

  • so you say you never had sex?never accidentaly walked into someone? never shaked hands whit someone? its all ways to get sweat on your self from others and if it was as contagious as you wanted it to be every one would have it, and you think using a towel and giving a machine a whipe takes away the sweat well sorry to break it down to you but it dont always some left unless you use some heavy cleaning soap or something.

  • I’ve found the best way to get a bench, rack, or equipment I want is to use smelling bad in my favor. Leave early with a crinkled nose peasant. In the end I got what I want without uttering one word. Mwahahaha

  • Fucking pain in the ass people, can’t even put their phone down for five minutes. Get the fuck off the phone, you are addicted, the tech companies have you hooked to their devices and platforms, can’t you see? I have to deal with this in my gym as well. Brainwashed zombies with their faces buried in their phones everywhere I look these days, ridiculous. Get back to living in the real world people.

  • sweating is fine but people need to clean up there machine after use unless u dont mind catching something like herpes…………..

  • Totally agree with you, and utterly sick of selfish people using their phones on the equipment. The following happened to me 3 days ago:

    I went to the gym to train the legs. A guy around my age, maybe a bit older, usually friendly, was on the leg squat machine with his smartphone… He basically did a set, then used his smartphone for 5 to 8 minutes not using the machine, then did another set. I needed to use this machine, but decided to let him more time to finish. As I finished my 7 sets at the other machine, he was still on that same machine hardly ever using it, but playing with his phone. He often does use his phone sitting on machines forever, not using them. He is not the only one to do that. There is only one such machine.

    I kindly asked if we could share the machine, which he agreed. I did a set. When he went back to the machine, using his mobile, I told him that I don’t wait long between sets, as otherwise the work out is not efficient, and knees can get cold and painful again. Of course, I didn’t want to have to wait 8 more minutes for my next set! He then asked me if I could not use another machine, but I explained that I already did that earlier, and, as there is only one such machine, we could just keep sharing this one.

    Then he left the machine, and said I could have it! As he took his mobile with him, I mentioned that I don’t use a phone when working out. Using a nearby machine, he then lashed out: “I know you don’t like people who use phones on machines, but I don’t care! I train as I wish, and I will use my mobile phone on the machines! And don’t talk to me again. Leave me alone!”, looking at me very aggressively. So, basically, he knows he is wrong, but he will do as he pleases. A 55 year old man???

    I went to complain to the manager, explained, and she agreed that no one is allowed to monopolise a machine, not using it, but instead using a phone. It’s only a few minutes later she realised it was a friend of hers… She said she would talk to him later. As I was leaving, he had already left, and she (the manager) told me she didn’t, and would talk to him “tomorrow”! She told me to forget it, as it was “now the past”. Actually, no! It’s too easy, in fact wrong, to let people do the wrong things, and let them get away with it!

    I don’t know what will happen next time I see him at the gym, but there is no way I will let the bullies win!

    What has this World come to, where people have become phones zombies???

  • What gets me about these idiots is when they’re sitting on machines texting for 10 to 20 minutes their workout is pretty much already wasted you pretty much already lost concentration a pump you might as well just start over again every time these people don’t take the gym serious if you notice the people texting make no progress I guess they want to build hand muscles it’s like put the fucking phone down or just don’t come at all

  • Steve love the videos i go through that at my gym an take pictures and show the manager put the name of the gym and city its in I will call them and complain

  • Worst ppl in the world! This is my single biggest issue with ppl in the gym…. they need to go and f3ck off and do that shit somewhere else

  • This guy doesnt get it, people need to be on their phones so they can half ass being at the gym and being on their phones and fell like their multitasking.

  • I’ll use my phone as I please. Every body in that botch doing the same shit listening to their spotify. They ain’t worried about me

  • when I go to the gym I leave my phone at home! For what purpose I need the phone at that moment?I drive to the gym so no phones, then I do workout no phones needed and then I drive home = no phones so?

  • There are too many phone zombies at any gym wasting everyone’s time. No gym has a policy against texting on the equipment. Im a big muscular guy and if I say anything to them they feel assaulted and threatened and then it turns out Im a “bully” because Im just trying to train and use the equipment. I don’t want to be a rule enforcer in a corporate gym, this is a big problem that gym management needs to, well, manage.

  • I left my gym when I saw folks not wiping down the gear after use. I walked up a cardio stairmaster and grabbed and slid my hands up on both rails to star my workout and was splashed with the sweat from both rails from the previous user. She had no towel with her and she did not bother to use the free paper towels to wipe afterwards…she didn’t care was the bottom line and during flu season. Simply put, people suck and when you have to deal with it vs. staff then who needs the hassle. I bought a treadmill and have a small weight room at home.

    -Nice video of bone-heads who have no clue…Rules should be enforced and how about: No towel, then no workout, and leave your phone in the car. Emergency calls to the gym can be made and received on a house phone. Find a new gym Steve and don’t try and fix their problems….they will figure it out when they have no membership and realize the obvious.

  • I only use my phone on the off occasion while resting, however 90% of the time its only to change songs or send a quick text to someone, stating that I’m busy right now xD

  • we r talkin about the gym not sex……..just because u wanna take the chance doesnt mean everyone around u does. inconsiderate and down right filthy!

  • It does my fucking head in, I will be doing a 10k on the treadmill and right in front of me a girl will be on the cross trainer no handing just scrolling and typing the full run.

    Both 50 mins I have burned 800 cal she has burned 132.

    Just pointless

  • Honestly this is a pretty good video.  I agreed on almost everything except for the cell phone bit since I use mine to listen to music.  What’s with all the dislikes??

  • Explorer Steve goes undercover with his cellphone to document people using their cellphones. Just had to work that in there.
    My Mom had a saying that always stuck with me. “Shit Or Get Off The Pot”! It’s amazing how invasive smartphones and social media have become.
    Here’s a tip for you, My brother lives in a retirement community near you in Vegas. Beautiful big home on a fairway with a pool. Three golf courses. Three clubhouses. Three community pools and complete gyms as part of the deal. He usually has these facilities to himself. Going to a public gym like you are, part of the culture is to be seen.
    Well hey, it was a good rant. Take care,,,

  • That’s a very nice gym you belong to, Xplorer Steve. Luckily the gym that I go to are not filled with folks on their cellphones all the time since my gym is smaller and multi floor. I go on my cellphone briefly, unless I am actually using an exercise bike.

  • I don’t mind if they wreck their own work out; what is maddening is they stop me from working out. It’s also a scandal that gyms don’t seem to care about this problem! All gyms care is the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ coming in. That is sick!

  • I’m the same way dude old-fashioned I thought going to the gym was to go there to get results now people just go there because it’s a fucking Social Club people texting they don’t put their fucking weights away it’s really sad I just don’t give a shit about the gym why even get a membership if you’re not going to take it serious that’s why they’re not making any progress they’re not paying attention to their workouts they’re paying more attention to the phone Snapchat Instagram Facebook that’s more important to them more power to them but get the fuck off the equipment if you’re not going to use it

  • I totally agree with you… this was 2017, it is now 2019, and when I look around my gym I see the same as in this vid, at times it seems over half the gym is staring at a smartphone, looking like Smeagol obsessively stroking the precious:/ people taking up machine time by siting on them for surfing the net. I think it’s something gym owners should look into, although I’m not sure they’d want to in a hurry.

  • Does this woman not know that cell phones do more than make calls. My phone is absolutely essential to my workout; to listen to music, to follow my routine, the keep track of my lifts. I won’t workout without my phone.

  • then you could catch herpies from having sex whit a condom to as your other bodyparts touch eachother and people sweat in sex to and you could get herpies from accidentaly walking into someone who sweats a bit and so on and since i dont got a plastic bubble to live in i take the risk:)

  • its never a pool thats impossible tho maby if you where 400 kilo and had runn 2 miles then maby fact is the epic sweat your talking about is ether a few drops or moistness on a bench or on the seat of a machine and yes i consider it the same as it is the same you said sweat can give you hearpies then you can get it from body contact of any sort use your tiny brain, if you got such a huge fucking problem whit sweat dont go to places where people sweat you fucktard its as simple as that.

  • Bringing a cell phone to the gym for music isn’t a bad idea, but if you’re going to sit there taking 3 minute rests between sets scrolling through instagram or SnapChat, then you need to get the fuck out.

  • Hello it’s veronica that only has a single tone to her voice. With two women that i refuse to believe have anything to do with the gym.

  • Jeez dude you really get it!!! I love taking up every bench in the zip code for the phone bitch rest set!!! Your videos are saving lives.

  • We have a lot of inconsiderate people these days.

    After a prolonged wait, I will walk up and ask them now many texts they have left.

  • News flash. Welcome to the world of i don’t give a damn about you i come first. And Artificial Intelligence. Lot of luck Xplorer Steve DIY you are going to need it.

  • I hate when people don’t take plates off equipment or put dumbbells back where they belong. Good point about phones in the change rooms. It should not be allowed. You never know if someone is pretending to use their phone but are actually taking pictures or recording.

  • Nobody serious about the gym anymore everybody’s balls deep in their phones that’s why they have no gains!! Men r just not men anymore

  • Today, I was at the gym. I was headed to the leg press machine which was not being used. There was a guy seated on top of the seated calf raise machine. I asked him if he was using it, he said yes. So I figured I’d go use the hack squat machine until he is done. Now mind you, I did 5 sets on the hack squat, while he only did two sets. He was on his fucking phone for like three minutes after each set. I want to exercise and go home! Hurry the fuck up.

  • I am glad she mentioned about staying too long on a machine. I had that problem today a user spend 10 minutes stretch between sets and knew I was waiting

    As far as the phones good luck with that I’d say half the people have their phones out and many of those are texting

  • If females dont like getting looked at, maybe its not such a good idea to wear very tight pants clinging to you with a lovely sexy figure!
    Maybe they should also let guys know not to look to much at a female at the beach where most are in bikinis showing off the figure!

    She dont live in the Real world!

  • Cell phones should be banned in all gyms. Gyms are a place to train and not deviate into some other world tying up equipment. These people are not serious about training and should go outside to do their cell phone crap. Rude behavior that can cause serious confrontations. I would love to rip one out of somebody’s hand and smash it on the floor.

  • She hates cell phones on the floor. I disagree you may have a family call business call work call or music or following a workout regime maybe her job is working at a gym but everyone else have lives

  • My son gave me an older iPhone and i got to admit I really like looking at it, and i use it more than my old style phone. But I still only stare at about 6-7 minutes a day. And in the gym I’d only use it for music with a headset. In my gym when someone sits on equipment, I always ask to use it, they always move. But that’s probably cause I’m old. Buck

  • everything this guy thinks i think as well.. just in less funny form! fuckin genius comedy brofessor chucklefuck!!!! �������� endorphins = seafish fuckin hillarious!

  • finaly someone saying its ok to sweat now days its to much shit on and on about you cant sweat in gym you gotto smell like purdy flowers all time and if its a drop of sweat on a machine you need to bring your wash mop to clean it up whit soap, people go to the gym to work out and then you sweat if you dont then your not working out and if you cant handle some sweat you shouldnt be there simple as that.

  • You missed a rule on supersetting and taking 2 to 3 pieces of equipment on different sides of gym… speciallly during a time when gym is packed or sitting at one machine n not doing shit or talking to some one else holding a machine

  • LOVED this video! My favorite line is “How many sets do you have left?” or “Is this your last set?” Like I get if you have to stop and change the music, or look up a video on how to use a machine, or check your workout plan but to be just sitting and not using the equipment is aggravating. Don’t be a dick.

  • I don’t ask, I just confront the person and tell him I’m doing a few sets. Today, a young man was texting a storm standing beside the equipment, I stepped right into and performed a set. When finished, he stated that he only had one more set to go. I immediately dejected him saying if no body is performing the exercise, it’s free to use for members. All members must share equipment and no one is entitled ownership whatsoever. Cellphones are a major obsession, causing accidents on the road, decreased performance at work, relationship break-ups, and major issues within society.

  • As far as nudity goes, it kind of depends on the gym. If it’s really crowded it might be a good idea to put the towel on so you’re not pushing past people in the buff. You also don’t want your goods at face level for people sitting of the bench. I guess if you’re walking to and from the locker naked everything is on display whereas if you just take you’re towel off at the locker only your butt is on display for the most part. Community showers kind of defeat that idea though because you’ve already be full exposed in there. Also, if the showers are only a few feet away it seems kind of silly to put the towl on just to take it off. Ultimately you have to judge the room. Don’t be naked significantly more than everyone else but don’t feel uncomfortable being naked some of the time everyone else is too.

  • Thank you for this video. Hopefully people will ask when about to join a gym if they can quit their own membership if the gym does not enforce rules including these situations.

  • People that go on their phone in between sets are the worst fucking people, like mate if the gym was meant for you to sit on your ass on instagram all day, it wouldn’t be called the fuckin gym would it

  • I’ve had this happen to me at least 4-5 times a year where I’ll be using a station and someone will come right and ask if they can hop on it real quick to finish their last set of reps, which in my book is the #1 rudest thing to do at a gym.

  • I was at my apartment gym one day in 7th grade and there was this guy in his 20s and he sat there for 30 MINUTES just staring at his phone. Pissed me off.

  • I hear you Steve! Those dang cell phone people drive me crazy. I am a football official and work with the chain crew, which is usually youngsters. My rule, during game cell phones off! Nothing is more embarrassing than to have your chain crew move the chains only to find out there is a flag on the play, now they forget exactly where the chains were. It only takes one time! LOL

  • Well let me ask you something. Why do you go to the gym? To work out? To lose weight? To stay in shape? Maybe one day people will realize the reason why they’re still flabby is because of the cancellation of any production by ingesting wasted calories and sugar…the usual type of guys that do this are also the ones that wear calf high socks with hats on and tank tops. IDK about others, but if I see people coming in with an energy drink, I call that person a fool.

  • I’d say that 99.9% of all gym users are wasting their time.  They are either doing their exercises incorrectly, or working without any structure/goals, or a combination of the two.  I see them year after year not getting fit, and not getting anywhere.  If you’re doing things like this, you are better off saving your money and time and staying at home.  Not to mention the fact that I’m always waiting for these people to clear the equipment, and that most of them never, NEVER, share between sets!  The just sit on the equipment like mollusks!  Drives me nuts!

  • the bottom line is that gyms sell too many memberships then they blame the gymrats fro being human in a way too crowded environment… stuff it lady

  • They really should have a rule against this if you’re on a piece of equipment for certain amount minutes texting get the fuck off it’s obvious you’re not serious about the gym

  • so you could speak it up to now then you suddenly desided you couldnt anymore? or is it because you just realised you failed and have to go into a plastic bubble so you wil never have any body contact to prevent herpies? haha you fail so badly anyway next time use your head before you speak im not going to reply anymore now i have gotten bored of you and your herpies nag.

  • 2:18 If you’re some frail fucking beta boy asking me how many sets I got left complaining about me being on my phone Then, FUCK OFF! ����

  • Also, don’t try to snipe equipment between someone’s sets. People sometimes try to take over other peoples equipment during breaks or water break. This is one of the biggest dick moves in a gym. In my university gym you can be kicked out for trying to snipe peoples sets

  • some people who can afforad gyms are dam idiots.. go lift weight, leave phone at home, shut your mouth train, go home, do whatever the fuck you want.. but dont be a pest on the gym.

  • I have the same problems at my gym. I refer to them as “phone zombies” these people find something to sit on, and waste everyone’s time. I HATE phone zombies.

  • Hummm, the sad thing I see is, you’re probably the one who’s being looked at as “strange”, bec you’re NOT texting on your phone at the gym lol!
    We have a saying here in Nyc: “having common sense is like a curse, bec you have to deal with so many people, who DON’T have it”!

    Great observational video Steve ��

  • I changed my garbage disposal yesterday with a Costco American standard 1 1/4 hp $20. dollars off so $69.99. replacing a Whirlpool 1/2 hp that was shot. I pulled all the piping out under the sink and cleaned it a lot of build up. It is probably time for you to change yours out and would make a good DIY video for you and your 16K. Retired Guys Rule!

  • What jerks! Restore order by sending Cosmo to the gym in his Marine Corps drill instructor hat so he can provide some “direction.”

  • I use my phone in the gym with a workout app… BUT I have a timer on mine where I give myself a 30 sec to 90 seconds break between sets. I get truly pissed off when people are on a piece of equipment 5-10 minutes between sets and not working out…I am very conscious of my workout time. I don’t talk or text during my workout… I totally understand where you are coming from.

  • or someone who runs with a huge smarphone attached to his or her arm hahaha it makes me laugh all the time. Why don’t you attach a f.. laptop to your arm and run with this or maybe whole TV station??!

  • How do you spell this in German and English? Vention Tention.

    Any link would be really appreciated.I have searched the net to no avail!
