I was just at the gym, and I saw some behavior that was so incredibly rude that I had to blog about it!!!
There are these nifty ellipticals with a nice incline that I like, and there are only two of them in the entire gym. Both were empty, but one seemed to be occupied. It had a towel, water bottle, and tabloid on it, so I assumed someone had quickly jumped off to go use the restroom or something.
I began my work-out, and about 10 minutes into it, this woman doing sit-ups on a mat behind the row of ellipticals got up and started using the elliptical. I thought it was a little odd. She worked out for about 10 minutes, then went back to the mat to do some more mat exercises, still leaving her stuff on the machine. Then she came back to the elliptical. Then, she left again.
When I was done on the elliptical, I went to go refill my water bottle, and I saw her on the weight-lifting side doing some strength training. Then I walked over to the exercise bikes and I saw that her belongings were STILL on the machine. I did fifteen minutes on the bike, and when I got up to leave, I saw her doing mat exercises again with her stuff still sitting there on the machine!
I was there for about an hour, and she was off and on that machine but left her stuff on there so nobody else could use it!!! I was absolutely appalled! She had only actually used it for 25 minutes or so, but she hogged it for close to an hour! And as I said, there are only two of these ellipticals in the whole gym, so it’s not like there are a dozen of them!
This lady needs to have a little lesson in common courtesy! I’ve never dealt with this level of inconsideration at the gym before.Filed under Uncategorized, the gym |
