Here is a hysterical clip of what not to do in the weights room. The obnoxious spotter is my personal favorite!

Don’t be ‘that’ guy!

  1. The Show off
  2. The Grunter
  3. The Sight seer
  4. The Machine Lurker
  5. The Mirror Flexor
  6. The Obnoxious Spotter
  7. The No-Towel Guy

My Personal additions:

  • The Stinky Guy
  • The I’m-too-good-to-put-my-weights-away Guy
  • The Shorter than short shorts Guy (doing stiff legged dead lifts)

Have you got any funny gym stories to tell? I used to work at a gym that had ‘shirts off Fridays.’ It was usually only the boys who partook!

    great stuff!
    The stinky guy who leaves the gym clothes in the locker and wears them every day for a month without washing them definitely takes the cake.

    Just one of the reasons why I don’t work in a gym anymore!

    Hi Daniel,

    I once had to tell a guy three times in 2 weeks that he absolutely stunk. What will it take to get the message through! Finally we worked out he was never washing his shirt Eeeewwweeee!
