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.
