Resolutions Suck

I can not wait for those folks without the gumption of stick-to-it-ness to leave my gym. Each January, throngs of people with good intentions decide to join the gym and come for the first few weeks. I wouldn't complain if these newbies weren't so rude: 1. chatting loudly as the instructor is going over cues and proper technique prior to class starting, 2. taking too long from the previous class to exit so the next class can begin, 3. loitering in front of/blocking the water fountain, 4. leaving their personal crap on a machine they aren't planning to use.

I realize that we all had to start somewhere, but it sure seems that the newbies are just plain rude and in the way. I am looking forward to the day when they realize that their desired effects aren't happening overnight and they quit coming to the gym. At that point, all will be right with the world. At least at my gym it will be.

What, you mean you don't get fit just by showing up to a gym? You actually have to listen to the instructions and consider other people? Sheesh!

I was so put off by two groups of young-ish ladies in my class Monday night. They were, simply put, just plain RUDE. Usually, I try to sneak out of class early...these women were laughing loudly and taking their sweet time to leave the class. Is it Feb yet?

Give it time. This too shall pass. It's too bad about the lack of manners, but you are so right. When I was at the gym regularly, I saw the same thing, January was stuffed, February was thinning out, March was pretty much back to the regulars... Ear phones? Nah. You wouldn't be able to hear the instructor. Oh, wait, that's happening anyway. Eeeesh. Good luck, at any rate. Right now, all I have to worry about is my dog deciding he wants to wipe his face on me, after digging in chuckholes. Somehow, I don't think it's the same. I can reprimand him.
