Why I Hate My Gym: Part 2

I think I can go on for days about why my current gym sucks, so I figured I’d just give snippets here and there.

Today (and practically everytime I go) the free weights aren’t in their proper places. Why is ONE 70lb weight in the 15lb slot? Why is the 35lb in the 90lb slot? Why weren’t 15lb weights together? We all know that people suck and some may not put the weights back in their proper places but shouldn’t the gym staff be doing that too? As I told the gym manager one day, if clients see gym staff taking the effort to put equipment back, they will too. Do you know what these “trainiers” (I use that term loosely for some at my gym) do when they don’t have a client? Friggin’ nothing! They sit and check their phones and chat.

GTFOH with that bullsh!t.

Why I Hate My Gym: Reason #1

Their friggin machines don’t work!! Not only do they take forever to fix their machines (please see previous post) but there are always a ton of machines broken. Today, two weighted machines were down and ELEVEN cardio machines were out of order. This gym has 65 cardio machines (yes, I counted) which means that ~17% of their machines are broken. WTF? And its not like they just broke down, I’m so over seeing the same “out of order” signs on the same machines.

When the day comes and I can afford another gym, I’m out that b!tch!

Dear Headless Stairmill,

Why the hell are you still headless??? Certainly I understand that things happen and you may need repairing once in a while, but 3+ weeks is a bit ridiculous to be out of commission. Your siblings next to you seem to work just fine, but it is slightly very irritating when I need to use your services are your other functioning counterparts are in use; not only in use, but being utilized by people who very clearly aren’t focused on the task at hand.

I beseech thee, oh headless stairmill, find your head, return to the land of the living, and let me use you.

Best Wishes,

Dani
