With new years now here, here come the fatties

So,

Who is not looking forward to going to the gym the next 2 weeks?

Always, without fail, the gym will be filled with people trying to fulfill their new years "resolutions", hogging up equipment and space.

Anyone share the same sentiments as me ?

complaining about too many people in the gym after new years is like complaining about too many drivers on the road during rush hour. ya it's inconvenient, but they have just as much right to be there as you or i do.

quite the opposite, i've found, they sit on all the machines, doing everything wrong. i don't attempt to claim to be an expert, far from it, i do what i do, and i do it right... but i hate working out in gyms with other ppl so much that i've built myself a gym in my garage.

no one to bother me, and its cold as hell (i love to work out in the cold, get far too hot in the gym)

i certainly don't admire those needing to continue their regular routines for the next 2 months or so in a gym....

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

The bottom line is that they will pretty much only be there for the next two weeks.

Most statistics will tell you that people that use fitness and weight loss as a New Years Resolution give up within two weeks of the New Year....which coincidentally co-incides with the new stuff coming out on Fox and NBC :P

Statistics are right...once a couch potato always a couch potato.

They normally really only occupy machines ( they love the lat tower and bench machines) and most treadmills have a 20 minute limit, so I do not mind.

How many do you see actually using the power rack or barbell? As long as I can squat, dead, etc.. I could not care less.

My gym here in Victoria gets nuts. (Oak Bay Rec).
Without fail, right after new years the month of January is brutal. My gym is a relatively small one, and the community is tight-nit. I know every regular (I go 5 times a week).

Now I know that the gym-hoppers have as much right as I do, but what I CANNOT stand is when a newbie shows up and treats the place and people with that "i'm better than you disrespect". I feel like this gym is a second home and you're trespassing!!

It bugs me...I cannot find a parking space and every machine/bench is hogged up. For the next month, I'm going to go at the odd hours just to avoid the rush.

Here's something that may make it a bit more easy to put up with:

these new years people bring in huge amounts of easy cash for the gyms. Without them, gyms would have to charge a lot more from the regulars.

Maybe it'll help....I still get pissed off though :P

Woo! new years crowd the swoll is overwhelming! I like to see the teamwork workout, one guy benches a really heavy weight while his buddy spots him and does his deadlifts at the same time. A very efficient workout right guys...
