Have all the resolutioners in your gym given up yet? Mine have.
NYR bitching/lol thread.
I saw a couple of them during the christmas holiday but now that school and work have started again, it's just like it always has been. At least in the mornings, when I go. Don't know about the evenings.
I workout at an invite only Powerlifting gym so this is the first time I haven't had to deal with NYR folks. It's cool because it's business as usual but then again you don't get to see that small percentage of folks that join and get it done and make it, and that's a cool thing to see. But at least no one curls in the squat racks.
>tfw small town
>tfw run into HS friend at the gym
>He thinks I'm a NYR

>Be me on diddlylifts/squat day
>been going to this gym only a couple months but been lifting around a year

>Repping 3.5 pl8 on deads all the girls are mirin' >they ask their bfs why they're not doing those
>bfs reply with "those are useless"
>As they finish saying this they begin gathering around the squat rack and curling just the bar
>mfw my first time ever seeing people curling in the squat rack
>mfw no face can describe my rage at this point.
Thought curling in the squat rack was a meme the whole time.
Curling in the squat rack is nothing. I have people come into the gym and use every cable machine there is as a bicep exercise, and then do curls in the squat rack and dumbbell curls. Nothing else, just like 8 different types of curls.
>I workout at an invite only Powerlifting gym
The NYRers at my gym are mostly fat housewives who stick to the ellipticals and dyel teenagers who get intimidated out of the weight room cause it's mostly bodybuilders and powerlifters, they're the nicest guys in the world but I guess they're scared of being around people that could rip their heads off
>go to gym during peak hours because I'm a moron
>gym just opened 3 months ago, brand new equipment, everything clean and nice
>cardio section is packed, every treadmill, bike, etc taken
>hamplanets huffing and puffing
>their synchronized stomps could be felt through the padded floor
>could barely hear the music over the din stomping feet and the whine of bikes and elipticals.
>pay it no mind, free weight area sorta empty
>finish last set, head home
Later that evening, I was bored and had a lot of energy, so I went back to the gym to bust out some cardio.
>get to gym
>stretch out and get changed
>head to the treadmills
>long bank of 20 or so facing TVs
>hop on first treadmill in row
>turns on and immediately turns off
>ok no biggie
>step over to next one
>belt twists around on roller and locks up machine

>turns on, do setup
>hit go, step on belt ready to get started
>motor starts to whine really high pitched louder and louder
>hit emergency stop
>fucking hell, what's going on
>emergency cord ripped the fuck out, half the buttons are popped off and laying in the tray
>next machine is stuck in highest incline
>don't even bother with it
>about to say fuck it and head home
>finally find machine that works
>not even in the mood to do cardio anymore
>find the only machine that NYRs don't bother with
>the hamplanet's bane
>the upright bike
>hit that cardo and leave
Tldr - fatass stampede of NYRs have completely destroyed all my brand new gym's cardio equipment in a matter of days.
>he wants to practice his PT/bodybuilding skills
give him proper honest feedback and you can both profit immensly from each other. If he's new with the whole PT thing he especially needs to know when he's to harsh or too relaxed with you. tell him exactly at what times he is motivating you and selling health and fitness in a way you would buy and when he isn't, that will be the most important thing for him to make money later.
>>He thinks I'm a NYR
>>Been a member for two months
Ive seen a lot of people going round the gym with Personal trainers try to build a balanced program, then come in another day and just walk on the treadmill for 30 minutes.
A lot of Dyels have also come up to me with sheets of paper in their hands (PT set routines) asking where this or that machine is when im trying to workout.
>Taking the Olympic bar out of the rack just makes the rack useless. Might as well do my curls in it and save space.
that's not true if there are atleast one more bar than racks in your gym
>enter gym on january the 3rd for the first time this year, since i was on vacation before
>i start with benchpress and after finishing my sets i forget my towel on my bench, the other available bench is blocked and while i am doing DB press on the front i notice a nyr faggotlord standing next to my bench
>While i do my second set of DB press i walk back to my towel on the bench, grab it and wipe of my sweat and put it back on the bench before walking back to my DB bench
>do my last set
>he walks up to me and is like "d-do y-you need that bench?"
>i am like "fuck yeah, dont you see my towel resting there?
>put back in in ears
>see him walk away
>never saw him again since that day
fuck all of you dyels wasting SPACE and AIR.
Last year I had a series of really bad seizures and wasn't allowed to put any stress on my head, neck, or back for about 10 months, including doing any weightlifting and even not being able to walk for a month. I was cleared by my doctor earlier this week that I'm able to resume normal actions including weightlifting. I got a sick discount at my gym because of NYR specials. I lost a lot of my muscle mass though and now I'm struggling to just bench press the bar without my arms turning into spaghetti
There were a lot less than expected.
But that's probably because there was another gym of the same chain opened more in the center of the city.
I'm going there tomorrow to see what it's like
Most resolutioners at my gym are really sexy girls who just want to "tone up" or "lose 10 pounds" so I really can't complain. There were a few guys but they already gave up.
My resolution was to do more cardio, and so far I've kept to my planned early morning cardio schedule, so that's kind of nice.
All in all, successful new year.
The cardio machines are still swarmed with the elderly, but the free weights at my gym never got that crowded and are already tapering back down to normal levels. The last of the kids home from college should be gone by next week, and it will be business as usual for another year
>see two ham planets circling around the weight area.
>don't pick up any weights, use the smith machine without putting any weight on it
>45 year old women everywhere, the aftermath of a spinning class
>they take all the lower weight dumbells and do aerobics
>two old dudes stand around the pull-up bar and this curling machine
>they just call each other pussies and start curling on the machine
>one dude keeps a toothpick in his mouth at all times even when he does cardio
>see a fat guy (must be atleast 300 pounds) rocking back and forth and side to side in the squat rack with 5 pound weights on the bar
>this old phillapino dude won't stop staring at me when I do my deadlifts and barbell rows.
>he attempts one rep of my weight and then runs over to the seated row machine
>some fat guy in the locker room gets upset that I won't say good morning to him and I call him a "hurt feelings little pussy"
>management talks to me about "providing a threatening atmosphere"
>when I finish my workout there is an old man completely naked standing in front of my locker
H..H..happy new year guise.....
I witness a guy that was doing curls on the deadlift platform. He would place the barbell on the platform, pick it up, curl, and then go do tricep extensions on the cable machine.
Since it was my deadlift day, I just walked over and took over his barbell on the platform without asking when he was doing tricep extensions.
Reminds me of my former gym...
>be on elliptical for some cardio
>look arround, see some fat woman and some dad bods
>the dad bods on the other elliptical alternatly hump on the machine on one leg, whole machine shaking
>few days later after i finish my workout go back to cardio area
>hop on elliptical
>whines like you step on a cats tail
>next is the same
>next is the same
>next is the same
>next is the same
>next is the same
>next is out of order
>next is out of order
>settle for the stationary bike
The years before were awful, so I was fully prepared. I've seen a few new faces amongst the regulars, but nothing to complain about.
It's weird, my coworker said his gym has gone QUIETER since christmas.
>Just fucking now.
>Bike 15 fucking minutes to gym.
>Change into gym-clothes and walk into the freeweight-area, with two hours before closing-time.
>Entire fucking freeweight-area fucking packed.
>Six Racks and two power-cages all fucking taken.
What makes it fucking worse is, that ppl in my gym use the fucking racks as a social-event, so 6-7 fucking ppl crowd around in tights and oly-shoes to squats, and then take for fucking ever, because they have to warm up for a half fucking hour before squatting the fucking bar; afterwards, they have to inspect each others form, talk and 'be rly rly srs bout squatting' with 'rly rly rly srs technique' FUCK! FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK!
When these fucking ppl aren't there, it's a paradise of free weight, but when they are there, they are fucking eyeing the fucking rack you are using, because they allways come in big fucking crowds, and they stay for so fucking long, shitting their fucking time away, that there is a build-up of ppl trying to get in some free-weight exercises.
The worst thing is, that there is a 'garage' attached to my gym specificly for these ppl, but they never bother going down there, because they have to walk 200 meters!!! FUUUCK!
Needless to say, I turn 360 and walked out of there, because I knew, I wasn't gonna have a chance at finding an open rack.
I have been seriously thinking about setting up a gym in my basement, so I can train i fucking peace.
New years has been great for me.
The only consistent new ones are a scottish father and son, quite fat and probably about 60 and 30 respectively who can both bench 2.5pl8 for reps, and are friendly with everyone. And there's a guy who acknowledges me and vice versa.
Finally, the small and fat new years people just stop using equipment if you ask them to work in or how many sets they have left. It couldn't have gone better.
Who /Unigym/ here? Post what people at your gym are like
>skinnyfat dyel frat kids who just pledged last semester
>skelly asians who come in groups of 3 or more, guys and girls do the same exercises with the same weight lol
>pajeets gonna pajeet
>black guys who you can tell are new but they already aren't dyel
>fat black girls working up a sweat, too bad they won't stick with it
>sorority girls wearing bright ass 90s workout clothing attached to bosu balls
>fat people doing ab work very poorly and to no effect
>pasty kids doing SS and spending all day in the squat rack I shit you not
I feel like the experienced people like to show out too:
>super hot 9/10 /fit/ blonde girl who comes in and looks exactly like pic related (including the outfit), does her whole plyometrics workout like this and everyone's mirin
>some swole as fuck guys come in and rep 315 on bench, pretty damn impressive
>Guy doing weighted pullups and windshield wipers in the middle of the gym just because he can
>some bigger dudes flex in the mirror between sets, have abs even in January (mirin)
>another really hot really tall girl (like 6'0) walking around the gym on her hands because she can
That's all I got for now
I work out in a small gym where I pretty much know by sight everyone, I've only seen maybe 5 people I don't know since NYE.
I sometimes envy the distraction between sets and the cute girls that you guys must have.
good for you, thats a fair thing to do
at my gym everyone is polite, they always ask if they are too close to you, never come near you when lifting, never walk in front of you when deadlifting in front of the mirror, always ask if you need a spot....cant imagine someone going on on a dl platform to do friggin curls
>lift at uni gym
>it's been peaceful but classes start tomorrow
>i fear those who are moving back into dorms will begin their resolution tomorrow at the gym
>my heart skips a beat every time i consider the possibility of not getting a squat rack
im not looking forward to this.. my uni gym is the size of a large storage closet at best. my goddamn power cage better not be taken
>tfw my uni gym was closed for a month over winter break because its doubling its size
>even last semester it was almost never too crowded that I had to wait for anything
I can't fucking wait till it reopens in a few days
>mfw superior home gym master race
>mfw doing mostly street workout
>mfw don't have to deal with NYR
>mfw being lifting Slavshit is good for once
Still a few cardio bunnies in my gym but otherwise it's business as usual. A lot more fat guys on the stationary bikes too
There's like 5 women in my gym who lift and have amazing bodies. Good god are they hot
>going back to uni on the 17th
W-Will they be gone
>tfw gym bully
You're doing God's work, anon.
That's a kid you fucking autist. Mid 20s tops. When was the last time you've seen a girl irl?
>go to wash my hands after my workout
>guy in just a towel sitting on the sink, drying his feet with the hand dryer
No it isn't, I don't remember who is staying and who has hone since Jan, I can't remember their faces but the gym is busy as fuck, even in the afternoon where as before the afternoon was the most chill time ever to lift
>Born 18 March 1980 (age 35)
>Children 1 daughter Anastasiya (Russian: Aнacтacия)
>Gyms that are open 24 hs
I didnt ask to be born in a third world country,this fucking envy is eating my insides.
I'm just glad schools start next week so all the school kiddies will not be able to go in the mornings.
Fucking dyels hogging all micro plates because its all they can do. Literally saw a kid curling with 3 plates of 5lbs on each side of the ez curl bar. The fucking gym only has 6 of those.
I'm not sure if this is supposed to be sarcastic or this guy is actually a retard
Looking at that gym makes me sad :(
I use a home gym that I made. It includes a bench ( Non adjustable ) 4 bars + an assisted curling bar, a lat pull down bar, 2 adjustable dumbbells and 3 dozen weights ranging fr 2.5 pounds - 35 pounds ( Most are 25 pounds)
There are so many things I cant do, like proper squats.
>dyel bf/gf at gym ive never seen before
>want to use pec deck
>girl is sitting on guy whos using pec deck making out
>legit 15 minutes of this shit till based gym fuck huge guy tells them to get the fuck out
>mfw I'd just use the bench anyway after you gay ass remark
>mfw you wouldn't do a damn thing about it
First time lifting at uni gym this sem will be on tues. It's not the same as the gym in my area. Its way to large to see regulars so I don't really meet anyone. Whereas at my local gym, if I see someone 3-4 times I'll talk to them If they seem cool. Plus asking a dyel to a spot on banch is fucking annoying. Swear to god, this fucktard put his hands on the bar just aftet I unracked it.
>newbies going short on bench presses
>newbies going short on squats
>those guys in basketball vests wearing those Italian dad style golden chain necklaces
>a lot of stuff suddenly going under repairs
put in some fucking passion, senpai
>all those looks me and the gyms PT were getting on our sets tho
I wish everyone would see it this way. Shit, looking at /fit you'd never believe everyone isn't constantly "lol look at this newfag banching the bar" but most heavy duty ripped fuckers are just respecting you for trying cuz they were all at that point once, and when they are old and skinny you will be big and beefy
>some fat guy in the locker room gets upset that I won't say good morning to him and I call him a "hurt feelings little pussy"
theres a new janitor at my gym that does this shit. tries to yell out hilarious quips while you're in the middle of a set, then gets butthurt when you dont stop what you're doing and fake laugh at him. i hate him and if he has a family i hate them too.
I went into LA fitness at like 5pm... There was an open squat rack next to qt3.14 They left, they all left. the exodus has begun, we're all saved once again and we're all gonna make it brah
Iv never had a bad experience with a NYR. My gym isnt any more or less busy. Iv seen them around but they just do their own stupid shit and really dont get in the way. Some of them dont put the free weights back but usually just have a kind word saying they should and they always do it. As long as we keep out of each others way i dont care.
>hear -clank- -clank- -clank-
>think someone is really working out hard
>look over and see severely skinny middle-aged man on incline chest press machine
>has like six 45lb plates on each side
>is doing 1-inch reps at the speed of light
Only at 24hourfitness.
>see 2 girls I've never seen before
>a blonde and an asian
>both wear yoga pants and a tight tank tops
>doing a weird leg routine
>first only doing 1 plate leg press for reps
>next they taking up a bench
>they put one leg on the bench and do body squats. Then switch legs
>looks stupid but kind of hot
>then they do some sort of assisted lunges in the squat rack
>they walk away to the stretching room
>breh. Especially the asian one
i go to a 24 hr fitness for the month also, thought it would be cheaper than my old gym, still 45 for a month. So many pajeets and old fuckin men doing stupid shit. then you got the asian wanna be barbell brigade powerlifters which are straight cringe.
$45? Mine is $32 a month. I'm in Missouri. Must be higher cost of living in your area.
But yeah, there's too many people doing stupid shit there. The old men love using the benchpresses to do situps and curls. Or otherwise standing around and trying to start conversations with people who are there to actually lift.
NYR fag here. It's been a good time so far, I come during off-peak and none of the regulars have been anything less than courteous. Desk guy is a squat coach, happily helped my form on 3 different lifts after I asked. I try to be courteous and conscientious of peoples' time if they're waiting on my rack. On the extreme off-chance any of those regulars are here, thanks.
there was a dude laying on the floor in the squat rack with the bar on the two metal side things
he proceeded to use it like a bench press but with no weight, just the bar
I work at Lifetime, membership here is $110 a month, so I guess the prices have kept most of the rabble away since you can't go shell out that much on a whim. We're also the only gym in the area that didn't do the ZERO DOLLAR JOINING OFFER bullshit that every other desperate place did because we do just fine through the rest of the year without being desperate faggots like golds and 24 hr begging for these fair weather fitness failures.
Yeah it's shady as fuck. I like working for a company where we are up front about screwing our customers out of their money rather than hiding it in the fine print. Pay us $110 a month and the club is your playground, no contracts or fees.
Just entered today.
I've been doing boot camp for a year now, and started to feel kinda stuck.
So I'm gonna do both boot camp for cardio and stuff, and gym for strength training and getting in shape.
Wish me luck.

I like to go to the gym before work in the morning ( from 6-7:30) and there was these 2 old bats there this morning ( id say maybe 55-60 ) doing literally nothing just eye balling me the whole time and when i got off the bench press one of them that was watching me just went over and sat on it even tho there is like 10 bench presses.
Then there was this asian guy who was massive ( And i mean massive, never seen a shredded asian guy where i live ) Was at least 6.2 and jacked like fuck that came in sat on a bench press and texted did maybe 3 reps of 50 Kgs then hit the 75kg dumbbells did maybe 5 reps of those then went back to texting for an hour and as i was leaving he left.

I cant believe she actually tried to coach me when she cant even bail a squat, not even 1.5 pl8 lol. Just looked at her and smiled, didnt even offer my whiteknight help, fuck that bitch. Pissed me the fuck off.

It's only the best thing ever
I have trouble sleeping semi-often so I end up just taking my project car for a nice cruise to the gym in the middle of the night. Nobody there at that hour, usually have the place mostly to myself. It's made me hate going to the gym during the day when it's full of people and their shitty snotty kids.
Been sick since Jan. 1st because I slept at a grills place (good start of the new year..). But we slept with the balcony door open (it was kind of hot after a while) so we both got a cold -_-
Not even worth it.
Can't wait to get back into the gym. That actually made me wanna go and better myself even more.
Thanks for sharing, anon.
Gym on base opens at 0500. So I wake up at 0430, take my preworkout, smoke a cig, and blast some heavy music in my car till it opens.
Lift for 30 minutes, and then do 30 minutes of cardio monday-friday. Saturday is for partying, sunday is for recuperation / meal prep.
I smoke and lift too anon.
Nice to know I'm not the only one.
It's always funny the looks I get as I sit in the smoke pit outside the gym after I get done doing cardio.
But it's whatever. I understand it's unhealthy, but as said, I enjoy smoking. I'll probably have to quit if I sign up for this one program though. Whatever
I go to a somewhat expensive gym so there's usually only boring normie wage slaves. I've been going at 5 AM so I don't know what the New Years rush was like but hopefully the price kept most at the nearby planet fitness. That said, I can count the number of normal people I've met there on one hand. Story time

>cringe so hard I hit the safeties

That was only my first day
you shouldn't have joined a crossfit gym, faggot
and no, my uni gym is still crawling with despicable DYELs being judgmental and dragging their personal beef into the gym, especially the girls
I'm not comfortable doing my hip thrusts and glute bridge at the gym anymore because of the looks I get from these fucking scum
I just had a moment where i over ate about 30 min ago. But then i calculated it and was still under my goal of kcal for today.
I ate the following:
200 g chicken mince
200 g wholegrain pasta
200 g pasta sauce
2 medium tomatoes
1 large onion
This meal was 1,209 kcal 177 carbs and 22 fat 67 potein and only 17 sugar and i added some extra salt to the pasta water so about 1600 in sodium.
I feel kinda confused and i don't know if i should feel bad anymore. At least i'm not hungry anymore after pigging this meal down.
